A blogger made me add it – latest TBR additions


Thank God for other book bloggers, without them my TBR pile might be a manageable size, imagine the horror of that?!

This is going back quite a few weeks now but I’ve compiled a list of a few books that bloggers made me add to my Goodreads shelves! Here they are…

Winterwood by Patrick McCabe – added because of Blood Red Velvet

The cover drew me in initially, then Shuford’s eloquent review tied the whole thing up in a pretty (macabre) bow and I knew I had to add it to my TBR! It sounds unique and unsettling… perfect.


Blood and Sugar by Laura Shepherd-Robinson – added because of For Winters Nights

I can’t resist a good historical fiction, especially not when it’s sold as well as it is in Kate’s review. I don’t think I’ve read a book with slavery as a focal point, so this will be something a bit different for me!


The Story Keeper by Anna Mazzola – added because of Keeper of Pages

Another historical fiction, one based on a true story too! I always trust Janel’s judgement on books so when they sound like a perfect reading fit for me, they’re an instant add to my TBR!


As Good as Gone by Amy Gentry – added because of The Misstery

Not a book that was on my radar before this post, but even with its low(ish) average rating, Annie really made it sound worth adding to my TBR!

My Mother, the Psychopath: Growing Up In The Shadow Of A Monster

My Mother, the Psychopath by Olivia Rayne – added because of Cleopatra Loves Books

There’s no way I would have added this book to my TBR just based off it’s cover, so it’s a good thing Cleo’s review makes such a great case as to why we should pick up this book. I like how she clarifies it’s not a “misery memoir” which can be really tough to read, it sounds like it’s more of an eye-opening and informative read about abuse that’s difficult to spot!


The Blinds by Adam Sternbergh – added because of The Misstery

Another book thanks to Annie! Her review made this book sound really intriguing. I love the whole weirdo neighbourhood vibe thanks to The Stepdford Wives, so this sounds like a worthwhile read to me.


The Only Living Witness: The True Story of Serial Sex Killer Ted Bundy by Stephen G. Michaud & Hugh Aynesworth – added because of What’s Nonfiction

As Ren mentions in her review, the cover of this book is less than appealing, but I really want to scrub up on my Ted Bundy knowledge and this book sounds like a good place to start.

And there we have it, just a few of many books I’ve added to my TBR recently thanks to other book bloggers!

What books have you got on your radar because of a blogger recently?

  1. Great list, I haven’t read any of these yet but they all look good and I read the two reviews by Annie so can see why you added them. Two books that I have recently read because of other bloggers are The Silent Patient and Six Stories.

    1. It was featured on Annie’s post “books I’ve enjoyed with low ratings” so you’re definitely not the only one! I’d give it a try but as I’m not buying books at the moment it will be much further down the line 😛
