Booking Through Thursday: Recommendation

This week's Booking Through Thursday asks...

If someone asked you for a book recommendation, what is the FIRST book you'd think to recommend (without extra thought)?

I actually get asked about book recommendations quite a bit, especially from co-workers. The first book that always pops into my mind is The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern because I LOVE this book and think everyone should read it. The Secret History by Donna Tartt also comes to mind quite a bit for those I think would be interested in a good psychological mystery in reverse.

What book would you recommend without thinking much about it?


  1. My book would be Water for Elephants. I would recommend this without asking the reader what genre they liked, etc. This is my current standard recommendation.

    I haven't read The Secret History, maybe I'll have to check it out.

  2. Both sound good to me. I am gonna check those out!

    Here is my BTT post!

    1. Both good recommendations.

  3. I keep hearing great things about The Night Circus. I'll need to check it out soon. My BTT:

  4. The Secret History is really good. Creepy :)

  5. I loved The Night Circus! It was so good!!!

  6. I happened upon your post by linking from "shelovestoread" on wordpress and totally agree with you about The Night Circus. Mine is, and forever will be, To Kill a Mockingbird.

    Love your cover pix, btw!


I love hearing from you! I appreciate all comments and will try to reply as soon as possible.
