Top Ten Tuesday (41) : Top Ten Books I’ve Discovered Thanks to the Book Blogging Community

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by Brokeandbookish. This week’s theme is a Top Ten Freebie.. Since I love you guys so much, I decided to talk about the books I’ve discovered thanks to YOU. Because you talked about it on your blog, mentionned it in some blog post, I’ve heard about those books because of you. I added them to my TBR, and read them because YOU loved them. Don’t forget to click on the title of the books to read their fabulous synopsis!

1 • More than This, Patrick Ness

I can’t mention Patrick Ness enough, especially in that particular topic. Because the community is in LOVE with him, and thanks to all of you guys, I discovered this fantastic book. I know, I know, I’m definitely ordering the rest of his works in my next book haul.

2 • I’ll Give You The Sun, Jandy Nelson 

I can never talk about that book enough, you must get sick of it already, aren’t you, ahah. I will forever thank you guys, especially Jenna, for pushing me to read this book. It was incredible.


3 •  All The Bright Places, Jennifer Niven

it’s mainly because of all the hype surrounding that book, that I wanted to read it. And I did not regret it, at all. It was beautiful. Once again, I have to thank you guys for that!.

4 • Red Queen, Victoria Aveyard

Red Queen, a.k.a THE book everyone’s been talking about, loving/hating, or a little bit of both. It’s because I’ve heard so much about it from you, that I first decided to pick it up. It was entertaining, but I’m expecting more from the sequel.

5 • Anna and the French Kiss, Stephanie Perkins 

This is THE book to read for every contemporary lover out there. And romance. And sweet, cute, swoon-y books. Seeing everyone head over heels for that title, that’s how I decided to pick it up. And I didn’t regret it.

6 • A Thousand Pieces of You, Claudia Gray

Another book I discovered thanks to you! A Thousand Pieces of You had been everywhere on the blogosphere before, and a little after its release. With that cover and that synopsis, I HAD to check it out. And it was AWESOME.

7 • Extraordinary Means, Robyn Schneider

I just as well could’ve talked about The Beginning of Everything. You guys introduced me to Robyn Schneider, and I am so, so glad that you did, because I loved both her books, and I can’t wait to read more from her !.

8 • Magonia, Maria Dahvana Headley

I know, the hype is BAD, but sometimes I can’t help listening to its little voice. And look at that cover! Seeing that book on everyone’s blog, I knew I had to check it out. I was kind of disappointed, sadly.


9 • Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda, Becky Albertalli

How could I write that post without talking about Simon? This book was the equivalent of an earthquake in the community. In a good way, because, well, everyone loved it. Including me.

10 • The Accident Season, Moïra Fowley-Doyle

I can’t talk about that book enough, I just, can’t. I loved it too much for words, and I am so glad I’ve seen it everywhere, and heard everyone saying great things about it. Without that, I wouldn’t have picked it up, or maybe found out about it. And I’m so, so thankful.

This is one of the reasons why the book blogging community is perfect. I mean, LOOK AT ALL THOSE books. I could’ve gone on and on, because you guys brought so much into my reading. And into my TBR, too…

  1. What a good idea for a TTT! I too discovered Magonia, Simon and The Accident Season through blogging/Twitter and I’m so pleased (even if Magonia was completely demented and I sometimes still wake up in the middle of the night worried that a bird has flown into my chest). I discovered Six of Crows and the Grisha trilogy thanks to the online book community, along with basically a billion other books. Top Ten Tuesday is a particularly awesome way to find new books. I saw on one list today that there’s a ski-fi version of Persuasion, which I now must read or I will cry. Yay for booknerds!

    1. YOU TOO FELT THAT WAY?! Sorry for the all caps here, but this whole bird-in-the-chest story kind of freaked me out a while, too! I haven’t read Six of Crows and the Grisha trilogy, maybe I will, I’m so curious about these, everyone seem to love them! 🙂
      Yaay, that’s why I love top ten tuesdays so much! 😀
      Thank you so much for your comment!! ❤

  2. There are SO many great books on this list! I absolutely LOVED More Than This by Patrick Ness, and I can’t wait to read his most recent YA book. I feel as though everything Ness writes is fantastic!

  3. This is my “problem” with the book blogging communities, I already have a long list of books I want to read and then add to all the wonderfully reviewed books and not it’s even more extensive than before!!
    This is a great list!! I have a few already on my list, but The Accident Season and Magonia seems interesting!

    1. Haha, I get you, I have the same problem. My TBR is ENDLESS, and I don’t know when I’m going to read all those books. But it’s kind of exciting, adding new books to it, though 😀
      Thank you so much! I LOVED The Accident Season so, so much! Magonia, a little less, but I hope you’ll like it if you check it out! 🙂
      Thank you so much for stopping by!

      1. It’s very true, half the fun of books is finding and adding new books to your collection!
        To be honest, Magonia I was really attracted to the cover page and sometimes I end up buying a book just for the cover haha

  4. YAY! Great choice of topic this week. I always love freebie week as people always do such amazing topics! When I first started blogging, I found so many amazing books thanks to this awesome community. So many of the ones you have found are favourites of mine.

    Here’s my TTT post if you want to check it out. I picked non-book romances I would love to see get book adaptations.

  5. Before starting to blog last year I literally had a long hiatus of a couple of years without reading, so I had not heard of writers like Patrick Ness, Stephanie Perkins, and even Rainbow Rowell, which is pretty crazy since they’re so popular. Anyway, I love this topic, Marie! Very creative. I have to say that thanks to the blogosphere and blogging my TBR has grown at least 3x its original size, haha.

  6. A Thousand Pieces of You and Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda were introduced to me by the blogging community, too, and I’m so glad I picked them up! 🙂 I read The Accident Season before I had even heard of it. It just came through the library one day and I decided to give it a shot on the spur of the moment. I was so pleased I did! 🙂

    Check out my TTT.
