Top Ten Tuesday | All About Recommendations

Top Ten Tuesday is brought to you by The Broke and the Bookish, and this week’s Top Ten Tuesday is all about recommendations and books you’ve read based on them. This was a fun post to put together, as some of my favorite reads have come from recommendations by some friends in real life, and some of my virtual friends I’ve met through Goodreads. Here they are in no particular order.

The Siren.jpg  10 The Siren by Tiffany Reisz

This is probably the best recommendation on my list. The Siren, while interesting, isn’t the best in the series, but that’s only because each book gets better. This series is totally addictive.

I resisted reading this one because the person who recommended it to me also recommended Fifty Shades, and that was a bust for me. When I finally read this, I was so mad at myself for holding off. This is probably my favorite contemporary romance of all time.

Gideon Cross is mouthwatering. Never has a billionaire tugged at my heartstrings or made me want him more. Sadly, after the first two books, this series went to shit IMO. But man. For those first two books…what a ride!

Him by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy

I didn’t wait that long to read this one, but after my friend Wendy raved about HIM, I finally picked it up. Holy hotness, batman. If you like M/M, and you haven’t read this book, you need to one-click right this second. You won’t regret it.

Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews

This book came to me after I put a call out for recommendations similar to Night Huntress. For some reason, it was years before I picked up Magic Bites. I was promptly bitten by the Kate Daniels bug and devoured them all one after the other. I love this series.

Reaper’s Property by Joanna Wylde

I can’t remember exactly which group this recommendation came from, but it was a Goodreads group I belong to. This recommendation was both a blessing and a curse. No one compares to Joanna Wylde when it comes to the world of MCs, so I rarely bother to pick MC books up by anyone else anymore.

Willing Victim.jpg  4

Willing Victim by Cara McKenna

I’ve said this in a previous post, but Willing Victim is the most re-read book in my collection. This book is as hot as hot can be, and news of a sequel tickled me pink.

Feral Sins by Suzanne Wright

This book is hot and a lot of fun. Not to mention it kept me in stitches. The momentum for this series didn’t last, but the first two books were awesome reads.

The Unsung Hero.jpg  2

The Unsung Hero by Suzanne Brockmann

This recommendation is blast from the past from my days as part of the Judith McNaught Bulletin Board. Those gals were a lot of fun, and this was just one of the amazing recommendations they offered.

One for the Money.jpg  1

One for the Money by Janet Evanovich

I can’t remember where I came across this recommendation, and again, after the first four books I realized this series was very formulaic. But this series is worth picking up and sticking with until they feel the same to you. You’ll get a lot of kicks out of it!

As you can see, some of my recommendations led to favorites, and I can’t thank the people who put these books on my radar enough! I’d love to hear what recommendations you got that really panned out for you.

  1. I wasn’t sure if you would go with HIM or Understatement of the Year, lol. I thought one of them would make this list.

    I love that we both have Willing Victim on the list.


    1. I didn’t even think of The Understatement of the Year. But it was HIM that made me fall in love with SB’s writing, so that was what came to me! Though I loved both recs.

      Willing Victim? You mean one of the hottest books ever!
