Booking Through Thursday: Recommendations


This week, Booking Through Thursday asks: If someone asked you for a book recommendation, what is the FIRST book you’d think to recommend (without extra thought)?


Ooo, this is a tough one. One good thing about me reading so many different genres is that 9 times out of 10, I  will always have a book to recommend no matter what kind of genre the person asking for a recommendation is into. There's definitely a couple of go to books that I've been recommending a lot recently:


Good for anyone that likes a good story  with characters that will tug on your heart. 
This is one of my all time favorites. I love recommending this one!
True Story: I read this book all in one sitting at Starbucks during college. 
I've recommended this book so much over the past year to people wanting to cure their Hunger Games hangovers. This is a five star rated book for me that I want everyone to know about.

What are your go to recommends?

  1. I just finished reading Me Talk Pretty One Day. Sedaris is a riot!

    I always recommend Seal Woman by Solveig Eggerz, because the language is so amazing. I recommend the Patrick O'Brian Aubrey/Maturin books, but I know not everyone wants to plow through the detailed descriptions of rigging. It's worth it, though, for the amazing characterizations and rendering of the time.

  5. Oh my goodness - yes!! I recommend The Language of Flowers all the time (I've even been guilty of shoving the book into people's hands)! Also, Divergent is a great dystopian YA recommendation.

  6. Me Talk Pretty One Day is one of my favorite books as well! David Sedaris is hilarious, I usually have people starring at me I'm laughing so hard.

Hi! Welcome to A Bookish Affair. If you leave a comment, I will try to either reply here or on your site!

As of 6/6/2011, this book is now an awards free zone. While I appreciate the awards, I would rather stick to reviewing more great books for you than trying to fill the requirements.
