Browsing Bloggers Bookhselves | Book Hooked Nook
Hey guys, today I have a new kind of post ready for you today.
Shortly after I broke my wrist I put a call out to guest post with other bloggers more and one of the lovely people who reached out was Sarah @BookHookedNook. After a bit of talking we decided upon a collab kind of post, whixh is this lovely thing you’re reading.
We shared photographs of our (main) bookshelves with each other so the other person could “browse” them and pick out books they’d recommend, books they suggest to avoid, or books they’d love to read.
As I really enjoyed this process if anyone would like to partner up witth me and do these posts together feel free to contact me. I’m best replying via Twitter DMs or emails.
So lets get started shall we! Here is Sarah first two shelves, already I see a few that I’ve read and would recommend to you, the reader, but I feel like Sarah has read them already. Also a very nice handful that I want to read myself.
I’ll use these emoji’s as a code:
📚 – books to add to my tbr | 📖 – read and recommend | 💔 – do not recommend
📖 The Surface Breaks by Louise O’Neill [purchase] & To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo [purchase]
Two lovely Mermaid books that I love dearly and have now placed on my own mermaid and witch themed shelf. I’ve met both of the authors too and they’re such sweethearts!
📚 The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo [purchase] & City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab [purchase] & Roar by Cora Cormack [purchase]
I actually do own all of these books but I’ve not read them because I’m trash. Yes throw me in the corner of shame… I will read these one day. You can hold me to this.
📖 Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik [purchase] & Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao [purchase] & Everless by Sara Holland [purchase]
Three more books I adore! Both Forest and Everless are duologies .
💔The Witches Kiss trilogy by Katherine & Elizabeth Corr
I uh I heard how book three ended and I’m not here for that kind of ending. I read a 800 page book similar to that once and 100% will never be down for three books to do that too me.
💔 Tyrelle trilogy by Amanda Hocking
Okay so I have actually read the first book in the series and parts of me still wants to return and try the rest but also like very little happens in the first book. Its the very last, I dunno, 40 pages where things pick up. So this is less of a don’t read this but more of a be warned its a slow start and it might pick up?
📖 State of Sorrow by Melinda Salisbury [purchase]
Yes yes yes! Read this book. I really enjoyed the pacing of this book and how it deals with grief and addiction. I’ll be starting the sequel soon, I promise!
📚 Spare and Found Parts by Sarah Maria Griffin [purchase] & The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen [purchase] & The Diviners by Libba Bray [purchase]
Of these I only own Spare and Found Parts whic I’ve been dying to read since I met Sarah but apparently I’m still the trash I previously owned up to be. The other two I’m dying to read but I hate the paperback cover of Queen and I’m just slow on picking up more Bray books as I’m still reading The Sweet Farting.
📖 Uprooted by Naomi Novik [purchase]
If you hadn’t gathered I am a huge fan of Novik’s work and I’d love to dive into her series some day, my only complaint for this book is that it could’ve been gay.
📚 Renegades by Marissa Meyer [purchase] & Wintersong by S. Jae Jones [purchase]
Sarah is gonna kill me but yes I haven’t read Renegades. I’m sorrry okay. I do intend to read it thin month with my book club though. Wintersong only recently came onto my radar but I love the sound of it, read it and tell me how great it is thanks.
& thats it! I tried to keep it pretty short as I realised there was a good handful of books that I wanted to include and y’know I’m still one handed. The books that I’ve reviewed I placed the reviews as the book titles instead of the Goodreads page so you could further read my thoughts on why I liked them.
Did I skip over any of your favourite books?
