We invite you to share with us a book or genre you tried due to the influence of another blogger. What made you cave in to try something new and what was the experience like?
Even though I'm a book blogger (kinda) I don't really peruse other book bloggers for book suggestions. I will say that I have read a book due to influence of another reader though. Some of my friends started a book club back in February and I've read a few books that I wouldn't have picked up other than it being a book club selection.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is definitely a book that I read due to book club. To me - I like to stick with the classics and I was worried this book wasn't going to be true to Jane Austen. But I was wrong and in a small way enjoyed the book.
A Thousand Splendid Suns is another book that would have never hit my radar without book club mostly because I tried to read Kite Runner after it first came out and could not really get into it. I'm still not sure why I could get into A Thousand Splendid Suns more than Kite Runner, but I'm glad I gave Khaled Hosseini another shot.
I'm following many book bloggers on Twitter so I hope over the next year I will pick up a book because of their influence.
