  1. Jenny Han is definitely a must! Gayle Forman is fantastic, too. Great List :0)

    My Top Ten

    Sarah @ The Book Life

  2. Great list! Bloggers definitely convinced me to read the Summer series as well. And I'm still dying to read Across the Universe, but haven't gotten to it yet. Sigh.

    My Top Ten :)

  3. We have 3 of the same titles on our lists- Sales, Han, and Walker are such great writers! And I have If I Stay waiting for me on my TBR pile, as well.

  4. I read several of the same books on your list due impart to other bloggers reviews, I finally bought a copy of If I Stay because so many people have read and raved about it. Grea t list!

  5. I read Jenny Han due to other bloggers recommendation too! I have very mixed feeling about the first book.I've heard a lot of good things about If I stay,Across the Universe and Nevermore from other bloggers too but I haven't picked it up yet! Fell free to check out my list

    Krazzyme @Young Readers

  6. So much greatness here! Everyone I see raves about Dash & Lily but I just couldn't get into it. I'm likely to give it a go again because it just could have been my mood at the time that kept me from being able to finish it.

  7. I'm pretty sure if I did this week's Top 10, half of my list would be because you told me to read the book :-) Great rec's here from GREAT sources!

  8. John Green is an author that I discovered here on blogs. I now own three of his books, though I've only managed to read one. That's the difficulty of blog recommendations: so many great books and so little time.

    Here's my list, Top Ten Books I Read Because of Another Reader. I'd also invite you to sign up for the contest to win a $25 Amazon giftcard this month at my blog.

  9. You can't read GReads! without reading The Summer I Turned Pretty books.


    And I now super want to go read Nevermore after peaking at Jen's review :) I definitely bought that like the day it came out, but I haven't gotten around to reading it yet.I've actually only read Brightly Woven, A Match Made in High School, and Mostly Good Girls, all three which I absolutely loved so I'll have to bump the rest of these up Mt. TBR :)

  11. And now we're running to go order Mostly Good Girls :) Thanks AGAIN, Anna! :)

  12. Todd Hewitt = love of my literary life.

  13. Ohh those are some seriously awesome books and some seriously great bloggers! Thanks for sharing! :)

  14. What an awesome list! I have so many books on my shelf that bloggers convinced me to read - VA? Pretty sure that was in large part bc of you ;)

  15. Great list! I've read Brightly Woven and I think it was good book.
