THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: Who (or what) influences your reading most?
Since I started blogging, I have noticed that my reading has definitely changed. Others are sharing about a book they loved, and then I want to check it out. I don’t necessarily pick up everything others do, in fact I am wary of anything too far out of my comfort zone. But nowadays, I do choose books I would not have chosen even five years ago.
My old favorites are still my comfort reads, but I have added several “new favorite” authors after reading about their books on other blogs.
One of my favorite new-to-me authors (in the last two years or so) is JoJo Moyes. I also love Lianne Moriarty. When I see something by either of these authors, I definitely bookmark it and hope it will show up on Vine…or if not, I might buy the Kindle version.
Sarah Jio and Heather Gudenkauf are other favorites these days.
Here are some from my Top Ten Favorites List of 2014: (Click Titles for My Reviews)
Big Little Lies, by Lianne Moriarty
Little Mercies, by Heather Gudenkauf
Goodnight June, by Sarah Jio
And Diane Chamberlain is another favorite go-to author…I’ve been finding some engaging reads in her backlist this year, like the Secret Life of CeeCee Wilkes, The (e-book), by Diane Chamberlain – 490 pages – (historical/contemporary fiction) – 2/9/15.
Her book, The Silent Sister, made my list of favorites in 2014, a newer one.
So many interesting titles that I might have missed without blogging.
What are you musing about today?
