Book Recommendations

Welcome to Book Recommendations! This is a blog for people to submit what they recommend!I will be submitting my own recs but really hope to get submissions.

Recommend anything you've liked! Even if you've just started it or are in the middle and are excited and want to shout it out - Recommend! All I need is the title and author, and if you want, tags. I'll find the pic for it and post it.

I will post everything submitted, even if someone else submitted it earlier.

I've started a TAG OF THE DAY! (Sept 1, 2014) I'll give a suggested tag to help inspire people to submit recommendations.

Books that are recommended will be listed with who rec'd them, whether it's a tumblr user or anon.

I will also reblog other people's posts on books to spread the recs.

Thanks for stopping by and send me your recs!

xwayward-daughterx said: I have a friend who's husband is in the hospital out of town and she spends a lot of time there with him. She asked me for a recommendation but I need help. She's looking for something happy/funny, no one dies or is sick, and maybe lovey dovey. If it happens to be a series that would be a bonus. Thanks so much.

For this  I have to ask followers to help out. It’s hard to think of something where no one dies or is sick. One series came to mind, it was a happy/funny series that starts with “All Creatures Great and Small” by James Herriot, and it’s been awhile since I read it. But it’s about a vet who takes care of sick animals, (usually with a happy ending) so never mind.

Anyone have suggestions?

If so please submit here with the tags happy or funny

highschool-bore said: Im 17 yrs old but want to break out of the teen fiction novels like Eleanor and Park and The Selection Series. Im trying to read The Tipping Point and Invisible Monsters by Chuck Palahniuck but I become uninterested... Do you have any recommendations?

I’m going to recommend Christopher Pike because his stories are suspenseful, thrilling, sometimes horror, have plot twists, if you like that sort of thing. So many of his books are good, Chain letter, Remember me, The Midnight Club, Weekend, Slumber Party…and so much more, take a look at his Goodreads.com page!
