Blogmas Day #15: Booktube Made Me Read it! (Part Three)

blogmas

One of my favorite way to get book recommendations is watching people on Booktube or reading people’s thoughts on blog or on Goodreads. Recently, I picked up three books because of social media. Here’s how they turned out for me:

  • Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Daisy Jones & The Six

Daisy Jones and the Six was EVERYWHERE this year. I couldn’t go on social media without watching a review, seeing the quotes, or hearing people gush about it in monthly wrap-ups. While this wasn’t my typical read (adult historical fiction) with a unique format, I decided to see if it matched the hype. It took me awhile to get into this book, but once I did, I couldn’t put it down. It is probably the book that I have recommended to the most people this year.

  • Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis

Girl, Wash Your Face: Stop Believing the Lies about Who You Are So You Can Become Who You Were Meant to Be

This book was all over my Instagram. It appeared on my feed almost daily. Paired with seeing countless displays in stores with this book, I decided to check it out. For me, this book was an average read. I appreciate that social media forced me to read outside my comfort zone–I rarely read nonfiction–but overall, I didn’t take away much from this book, which I feel like was the point of the book.

  • Sadie by Courtney Summers

Sadie

I heard Sadie frequently mentioned on Booktube for its compelling story and unique format. While I liked the concept of Sadie, it was only an okay read for me. I actually think this would make a better short series or movie adapted by Netflix.
