- Goodreads recommendation
- From a friend or family member
- Amazon
- From a blogger that you follow
- An author's recommendation
- A librian/bookseller's recommendation

Have fun and happy reading

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments I love your theme, Allison! I'm going to read The Book Thief by Markus Zusak , which was first recommended to me by my daughter. Since then many others have recommended it to me.

Michelle | 451 comments I'm going to read The Book Thief by Markus Zusak . I've been recommended this multiple times by multiple people but still haven't got around to reading it yet. I don't have very many unread books right now so I definitely will get to it this week.

Jenny Completion Post
The Sun Is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon
Book- The Sun is also A Star
Author- Nicola Yoon
Date Finished- 1/28
Rating- 3.5 stars
I was hoping to really love this one, but it just didn't compare for me to Everything Everything. This one was a bit slow in the middle, but I did enjoy the beginning when they met and the ending.

And I Darken (The Conqueror's Saga, #1) by Kiersten White
Won't complete this week. I am listening on audiobook and am about 60% thru. Will finish next week during my work drives. So far, I am really enjoying it. Will most likely be a solid 4 for me unless something changes negatively in the ending.
