Top 10 Tuesday: I'm featuring books recommended by fellow bloggers
Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl is hosting another week of Top Ten Tuesday. I enjoy participating each week for a couple reasons. I'm a compulsive list maker and love a good list. And, I love a connection with other readers as I wander their book blogs. This week's prompt is to share books that I loved so much I had to have/keep/find a copy. Well, that's not really me. I give away my books if I loved them - I want everyone to read them. And since I don't reread books, I want the books on my limited shelf space to books I want to read.
So, I'm changing it up this week and sharing books that are on my TBR because of a book blogger's recommendation (and this is just a tiny portion of them - you guys are deadly!) Here goes.

Now I'm going to break the pattern (and cheat just a tiny bit) because my last two entries are sources that I use a LOT - I've learned to trust their reviews and they are prolific, always introducing me to new authors and books. I'd heartily recommend you check them out!
Modern Mrs. Darcy blog and Anne also hosts the tremendously successful What Should I Read Next podcast. Your TBR will never be the same. Here are just a random three I picked from this source (cover images link to Goodreads)
Another blogger/podcaster that often makes appearances on my TBR lists are suggestions from Mel at Strong Sense of Place.
Like I mentioned, there are SO many other books on my TBR that I've added due to my participation in Top 10 Tuesday, Stacking the Shelves, Sunday Salon, and Sunday Post book memes. My goodness, the supply of recommendations is never ending! Please take time to click through to some of those other blogs and enjoy their reviews and suggestions!
Have a calm, restful week full of good books!
