Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Each week there is a new theme, and this week the theme is books you were recommended to read. Nothing I can think of has had a larger effect on my TBR pile than the ever popular Instagram rabbit hole/time suck that is #bookstagram. Whether it was a beautiful picture, a breath taking quote, an awesome review, or just a collection of a thousand of the same posts all shouting "read me!" - here are ten books I have read because of #bookstagram!
Me Before You
"Me Before You" by JoJo Moyes was probably one of my first #bookstagram reads. When I first landed on the #bookstagram scene, it seemed like this book was everywhere and everyone was gushing about it. I knew it was going to be an emotional read - and it definitely it was! I haven't watched the movie yet, but I am sure that I will soon - better stock up on some tissues first, though!
This Savage Song
Sometimes #bookstagram knocks you over with one hundred pictures of the same book, and then other times it is like a gentle nudge. I'll continually see a book and be reminded each time to give it a chance, and that was definitely the case with "Room". I saw the movie before reading the book (which I never do!) and loved it so I knew I had to read the book, and #bookstagram confirmed. I absolutely loved this book, check out my review here.
Lily & The Octopus
The cover for "The Nest" is definitely eye catching, so it is no surprise that is was frequently featured on #bookstagram. This beautiful book was a quick read that I had trouble putting down at times! I really grew to love the characters- maybe someday there will be a sequel? A girl can hope! Check out my review here.
