The following books were recommended to me by non-blogger sources in the last year: friends, family, library, magazines, online, etc. For each I'll list what made me pick up the book to read. What books have you read that were non-book blogger influenced? (Clicking the images will take you to the Goodreads page for the book).
Sh*tty Mom by Mary Ann Zoellner, Laurie Kilmartin, Karen Moline, Alicia Ybarbo- my sister-in-law let me borrow this at the end of my pregnancy and I just finished reading it and I reviewed it here.
How To Say Goodbye In Robot by Natalie Standiford - I found it while browsing the audiobook section of my library during my pregnancy.
Speaking In Bones by Kathy Reichs - Another from the audiobook section of my library - also I'm a huge Kathy Reichs fan so no one needs to tell me to try her books. ;)
Toddlers Are A**holes by Bunmi Laditan - I found her facebook page via other Mom's I know and realized she'd written some books so I borrowed this from the library (then I bought a Kindle copy). My review can be found here.
Island Girls by Nancy Thayer - I kept seeing this displayed at my local bookstore during the summer so I borrowed the audiobook from my library - great summer read (and I have it for Kindle too).
Yes, My Accent Is Real by Kunal Nayyar - It's Raj! How can you not want to read his book? I borrowed this as well from my library (audiobook version narrated by Kuanl himself) after seeing it mentioned in a magazine.
First Frost by Sarah Addison Allen - found at local pharmacy while waiting for a prescription to be filled and it was a companion novel to Garden Spells that I adored.
Anne Frank: Diary of a young Girl - borrowed from library to tick off another book from the Gilmore Girls reading challenge I am attempting. Review still to come as I'm going to be attending an exhibit at my local library that has things from the Anne Frank Musuem!
Rainshadow Road by Lisa Kleypas - I'll be attempting to finish this series, since I picked up the first in the series while in an airport and hadn't gotten around to finishing the series until I saw the audiobook version sitting at my library calling my name!
I Was Here by Gayle Forman - another audiobook find at the library. I'd heard lots about Gayle Forman's work before, but hadn't attempted any of her novels until now.
