BBAW DAY 3: UNEXPECTED TREASURES

Little late with my post, but BBAW's day three themed topic is:

Book bloggers can be some of the most influential people around!  Today 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?

Because of book blogs I was introduced to the dystopian genre.  I know I probably read this genre in the past, but I never knew that it had its own classification until I started blogging.  I really was not influenced by a particular blog to discover this, but actually was influenced by many blogs in the book blog blogosphere.  Here are the dystopian books I have read since starting my blog last year (click on the titles to read my reviews):

The Road--Cormac McCarthy

Winter's End--Jean-Claude Mourlevat

The Hunger Games--Suzanne Collins









Happy BBAW!

I apologize for word verification, but I turned it off and had close to 50 spam comments within 12 hours (nobody has time for that) so I had to turn it back on. Sorry!

This blog is Award Free. I appreciate your thinking of me for an award, but please know that your comments are my award. Thank you!

  1. I probably wouldn't have read The Hunger Games if it wasn't for all the buzz around the blogs!

  2. I loved the Hunger Games, too. And The Road has been in my To Buy list for a while now. I should probably get around to finally getting it.:)
