TGIF (20): Book Blogger Influences

TGIF is a weekly meme created and hosted by Ginger of GReads! that recaps the week's posts and has a different question each week.

This week on Denim-Jacket Librarian Dishes:


Has there been a particular book blogger who's influenced what you read?  Share with us a review/book blog that convinced you to pick up a certain book.

My Answer: That's like asking for the number of stars in a clear night sky. lol  There are so many bloggers that I look to for recommendations, guidance on deciding whether to read a book I'm on the fence about, and just to see what they have to say on books I'm looking forward to reading. In perspective of who influenced my decisions on what ARCs to get this week at the Texas Library Association conference here is a short listing of bloggers who "forced my hand" so to speak. ^_^

Something Like Normal by Trish Dollar (Thank you, Jess!)
Sweet Venom by Tera Lynn Childs (though I picked up Sweet Shadows) (Thank you, Christy!)
Abandon by Meg Cabot (though I picked up Underworld) (Thank you, Karen!)

These bloggers' reviews made me pick up published books:

The List by Siobhan Vivian (<--This author is too sweet.) (Thank you, Amy!)
Shattered Souls by Mary Lindsey (Thank you, Christin!)
Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys (Thank you, Marla!)

From the bottom of my heart, I thank you awesome book bloggers. ^_^
(Btw my TBR shelf groans at you all.)
