Yet Another bookish tag to play with. Hello dreamers and booklovers, welcome back to my blog. I have something fun for you guys today.

The topics for this week’s post will be a little tricky for me because I don’t request or give out a ton of personalized book recommendations. I should rectify that soon.

I don’t recommend much because I believe Everybody has their different taste in books. Taste is such a subjective thing that I feel a bit shy about these sorts of conversations unless I’m 100% sure the other person will love that book just as much as I loved it. Which isn’t always the case but since I started my bookstagram account, I have had some pretty good recommendations and That is one thing I love about that community. (FOLLOW MY IG IF YOU HAVE A BOOKSTAGRAM ACCOUNT FOR A SHOUTOUT) insta

So I’m going with a list of some bookstagram recommendations, childhood books and bookish friends recommendations to answer this prompt.

JENNY HAN – TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED SERIES

To All the Boys I've Loved Before (To All the Boys I've Loved Before, #1)

This was the first series I was recommended by a fellow bookstagrammer when I was trying to be more genre fluid and inclusive. It goes to say I quickly fell in love with Jenny Han.❤️

SInce then, I have read several of her books and loved everyone of them.

J.R.R. Tolkien – Lord of the Rings series. 

The Lord of the Rings (The Lord of the Rings, #1-3)

My Dad(God rest his soul) bought me my first ever copies of The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings trilogy in High-school . This was one of my firstever dabble into the series world and it was was a fun right read away, and I since then have become a steady reader of series.

CELESTE NG – LITTLE FIRES EVERYWHERE

Little Fires Everywhere

This book was gifted to me by a dear friend and I wasn’t too keen on it at first but it goes without saying, it’s among my top 10 books of 2019. This book told such engrossing stories about life, mental health and so much more… I wrote a review on it HERE you should check it out.

J.K ROWLINGS – HARRY POTTER series.

Coffret Harry Potter en 8 tomes

I no longer recall who recommended this to me, but I’m glad they did. I am pretty sure it was my dad, that man was my main book supplier 😆 And I was such a daddy’s girl. These books where the books of my childhood and I can’t remember how many times I’ve reread them. Thank You DADA😍

  1. Welcome to the Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge! I’m glad you joined us.

    J.R.R. Tolkien’s books were on my list, too. They’re such classics. Is it safe to assume you’ve seen the films based on them? 🙂

    My post.

  2. Welcome to the blog hop! I absolutely love Tolkien and the Harry Potter series! The others sound like something I might like… adding them to my TBR list! (will take recommendations from a Flavia fan every day . Thanks for stopping by earlier!

    1. Thanks so much! I’m glad to join. Lol! I’m pretty sure you will love every last one of them. You’re welcome and thanks for stopping by too… I appreciate.

  3. Great choices. I will admit to watching the movie for “To All the Boys…” because my daughter had read the book and wanted someone to watch with her. It was adorable.

    LOTR and Harry Potter — yes!!

    I honestly love reading in as many genres as I can, so have really loved this week’s prompt. It’s definitely added to my TBR.

    I’m here if you’d like to visit: http://www.mariannearkins.com/wednesday-weekly-blogging-challenge-books-i-read-on-someones-recommendation/

    1. The movie was so much fun and I actually watched it after reading the books and I am patiently waiting for the sequel which is currently in production.

      LOTR & HP are obviously everyone’s favorite books. lol

      I’M LEARNING TO READ MORE GENRES and this prompt was really helpful and I’d be sure to check your list out now.

      Thanks for stopping by

  4. Great list. I’ve read all but the Tolkien ones. We even read Little Fires Everywhere for book club. I have to agree with you that books are subjective and we all like what we like. I’m open to suggestion, but I try not to get upset if my suggestions aren’t appreciated. I also don’t offer them up often. lol!
    Thanks for stopping by earlier. 🙂 Glad you joined the hop.

    1. Thanks so much! It was a top pick for so many book clubs… Yes and Yes!! LOL I tend to keep the books I love to myself as most people I know actually don’t understand my taste in books.

      Thanks so much for stopping by and I’m excited to join you guys.

  5. Welcome to the challenge!!!
    I’m a LOTR fan and will be until I die. Actually, I watched the movies first(yeah, I know) but then read all the books and became a passionate fan.

  6. My dad doesn’t read that much but my mom and I like to recommend books to each other. The last novel I recommended to her was ‘Foe’ by Iain Reid and I was relieved that she liked it (almost) as much as I did. It’s not as awkward as sharing your own writing but I think there’s something about recommending books you love that makes people feel a little bit vulnerable. 🙂

    1. Your mum do? Wow! I’m glad you both still have each other😍

      I know right? I almost never recommend and I’m always so vulnerable when I do😁 most people have different distinct taste in books and it’s hard to find that one person who loves the books you do too❤️

      Thanks so much for stopping by ❤️
