Today we encourage you to blog about a book you read only because you discovered it on another book blog. Preferably, this will be a book you loved! You might also write a bit about the blog you discovered it on!
At first, I was overwhelmed by this topic...how can I possibly remember? Which led me to an idea...when I post a review, I ought to credit the blogger who introduced it to me! A few notable books that stand out in my mind:
I have found many books at the delightful Presenting Lenore. But The Joy of Spooking: Fiendish Deeds, the first in a trilogy by P. J. Bracegirdle, stands out. I actually won a copy, but loved the book so much that I bought a copy for Holly (I had promised to send it along once I finished, but found I couldn't part with it!). Book Two will be out next year, and I can hardly wait.
Lesa's Book Critiques is another favorite spot of mine, and I've found many a cozy mystery there. One Bad Apple, the first in the orchard series by Sheila Connelly is one of of them. Granford is a nice town to visit on a rainy day, and Meg, the protagonist, is charming. The orchard information is icing on the cake. Lesa's Book Critiques is also where I found that the second book, Rotten to the Core, was available. I believe I also found the G. M. Malliet series (beginning with Death of a Cozy Writer), which I love.
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman was *everywhere* in the book blogging world before I finally got around to reading it. I can't remember where I saw it first, and it took me several glowing reviews before I picked it up, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.
There are many, many more, but I can't recall off the top of my head. I shall certainly make a point of crediting bloggers who introduce me to books in the future.
