I’ve been a little absent from this blog hop lately because I’ve been uber busy. But this topic was one I found I could easily write: Books I’ve read on someone else’s recommendation.
Before Netgalley, word of mouth was the best way I found out about new authors and new books. Rosie O’Donnell recommended HARRY POTTER on her television show and I was so enamored at the idea of the book I bought it and my then 8 year old daughter and I read it together.
A girlfriend recommended I read Marianne Rice’s STRAWBERRY KISSES and I’ve been a fan every since!
While at a romance writing conference, I overheard two gals talking about this author they’d discovered named JILL SHALVIS who wrote a book called the LUCKY HARBOR series. I’ve been a faithful fan since the first day I read one of those books.
And before I knew that JD ROBB was the doppelganger of Nora Roberts, I read NAKED IN DEATH based on a recommendation of the woman who owned my local book store. I loved the voice of JD Robb at once and when I found out she was really Nora, well, that just solidified her books for me.
Now, with Netgalley, I’m able to be the one who recommends books to my own friends….which is fantastic!! My only hope in life is that someone recommends MY BOOKS to some of THEIR friends!
Let’s see what some of the other book recommendations on this blog are: L&SR
Until next time ~ Peg
And don’t forget, my new book IT’S A TRUST THING releases on 11/1/19, exclusive to Kindle and KU and is up for pre-order right now. And just so we’re clear on this, I’m RECOMMENDING THIS BOOK TO YOU!!!!
