She Liked It, Then She Told a Friend and so on and so on…

Today’s Book Blogger Appreciation Week topic has to do with books. Books that you heard about on another blog, read and then loved! Well, way back in April, Raych over at Books I Done Read reviewed My Cousin Rachel by Daphne du Maurier and based on her review alone, I knew that I had to read the book.

She included a lot of CAPS in her review which told me that I must drop everything and read it now. She also stretched her words out reallyyyyy longgggg to get her point across. When Raych does that, my ears perk up. I can’t help it.

So I read it and I LOVED it and now I am using CAPS to describe my OVERALL EXCITEMENT OVER IT. It hasn’t stayed on my shelf since I’ve read it. I have been lending out to everyone I know!

What great books have you discovered?

  1. I have found so many this year on blog and passed them on. Here are just a few:
    The Bastard of Istanbul
    Crazy for the Storm
    The Household Guide to Dying
    Prayers for Sale
    South of Broad
    The Thirteenth Tale

    All of these I have read and passed on to other, many others. Since I found book blogs about 6 months ago, they have become my main source of information about new books to read.

  2. How great that you are sharing the love of that book by lending it to your friends! I love turning people on to great books! This one is on my list!

  3. This is one I really want to read. I've discovered quite a few books through blogs over the last three years. 🙂

  4. OK, you've convinced me to pick up this book :-). I've only recently started reading Books I Done Read, so I didn't see her review, but your recommendation is compelling.

  5. I never thought I would like Daphne du Maurier until I read a bunch of great reviews earlier this year. I still haven't read any of her work, but I want to.

  6. I actually won this book from Caite, and has been sitting patiently on my shelf for a good reading. My mom took it and read it, and loved it. So I am new to Raych. I guess I am starting to think I am going to like her…I like her attitude. I am going to trust all of you on this and am going to VOW to read this book before the end of the year!

  7. And there this one sits in Mt. TBR. If I could just stop buying books, checking out books, getting books for review, then maybe I could finally get to it.

  8. I love the title of your post! The caps are indeed very impressive. I don't think I've read My Cousin Rachel yet – if I did, it was quite a while ago. I'll have to check it out!

  9. I'm new to reading Raych's blog – I love how her enthusiasm shows in her posts.

    I've read Rebecca, but not MY COUSIN RACHEL. Looks like I'll have to add it to the list!

  10. I totally missed that review of Raych's. But I know what you mean about how you can tell if she liked a book or not. I'll have to check this one out.
