The Best Books That Were Recommended to Me

I just thought I’d share some of the best book recommendations I’ve been given so that you can read them too if you haven’t already.


FingersmithFingersmith by Sarah Waters

This was a reading group recommendation. I read it all in about six hours which was crazy because it’s over 500 pages long. I loved it though and it instantly became one of my favourite books. It’s one of the best books I’ve read for a book club or reading group and I’m so glad I picked it up. I would recommend this book to anyone.

The Raven Boys coverThe Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

I was recommended The Raven Cycle by so many different people that I can’t remember who recommended it first. It’s one of the only YA series’ that I truly love and that’s because it’s so odd and unique. I love the concept, the characters, and the writing style. I’d recommend the whole series to anyone.

This book is so difficult to describe but it’s amazing. It was recommended to me personally but it was a throwaway comment in a seminar that I followed up on. A lecturer recommended it so we could see how to use the ‘I’ playfully and I loved the idea of the book so I knew I needed to read it. I’d also highly recommend it. Go and read it!


What were the best book recommendations given to you? Do you have any book recs for me? Let me know in the comments!
