Rec Reads (4)
Tuesday March 13, 2012 at 12:12 am |


Rec Reads is a feature I’ll be posting every once in a while. It is just a post to show the books I purchased or acquired as a result of a great review by one or more of my fellow book bloggers. It’s just a quick and fun way to let my fellow bloggers know that I do read their reviews and appreciate the time they spent reading the book and writing the review for us. So this is just a nod to say thanks for the reviews and keep up the hard work. Your work and suggestions are not being given in vain.

The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak and The Peach Keeper by Sarah Addision Allen suggested by Alexis of Reflections of a Bookaholic.  Read her reviews here and here.


Dark Lover by J.R. Ward and Kiss of Midnight by Lara Adrian suggested by Missie of The Unread Reader.  Missie is always raving about the Black Dagger Brotherhood Series and The Midnight Breed series by their respective authors.  So I picked up the first of each series to try them out.  Read her reviews here and here.

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins suggested by Molli of Once Upon a Prologue.  Read her review here.

  1. The Peach Keeper’s is on my wish list. I’ve heard great things about the authors work. The Book Thief is a great read.

    • Jade Jade says:

      I’m glad to know you read and liked The Book Theif…I hope I have the same reaction. And I’ve heard wonderful things about The Peach Keeper as well. I’m glad I finally picked it up.

  2. Okay, I know… my addiction to vampires is a little out of control! I promise to get help…someday! But for now, READ those books! LOL

    I got Anna and the French Kiss a long time ago based on all the glowing reviews I’d read for it, but I still have it sitting on my shelf. *sighs*

    And, I’m so surprised I haven’t read The Book Thief yet. I love Aussie authors, so I should get on it soon.

    Fun post, Jade. Thanks for the links. 🙂

    • Jade Jade says:

      Your obsession is crazy, but at least it leads to some good reads! I’m anxious to start those series and will probably be reading them in the next month.

  3. Alysia says:

    I love this idea of Rec Reads! You should do a meme so everyone could link it up and see what recommendations are turning into purchases. I love the cover of The Peach Keeper.

  4. Brie says:

    Did you like The Peach Keeper? I loved every single one of her books, if you enjoyed that one you should read Garden Spells and The Sugar Queen. Loved them! So charming and magical. That author has an incredible voice, I read all her books, absolutely recommended and I’m so happy you read it!! YAY! You should write a review so we can talk more about it LOL!

    Anna and the French Kiss was a cute book, but the next one, Lola and the Boy Next Door was better, at least IMO. Again, if you liked it, read the other one, lovely books.

    • Jade Jade says:

      I haven’t read any of them yet Brie, I just picked them up the other day at Barnes and Noble and Ollie’s. So they have officially been added to the TBR. But I hope to get to them soon.

  5. Anna is suppose to be awesome.

    I want PeachKeeper BAD! I adore Sarah Addison Allen.
    Have you tried The Girl Who Chased the Moon?

    • Jade Jade says:

      I hear great things about Anna too. And I haven’t read any Sarah Allen Addision but she seems to come highly recommended. I’ll probably end up getting The Girl Who Chased the Moon, especially if I enjoy The Peach Keeper as much as I’m anticipating.

  6. Lena says:

    I read some great reviews for Anna and the French Kiss. All the reviews made me want to read it, but I never got a round to acquiring the book. The Peach Keeper looks lovely.

    • Jade Jade says:

      Lena I don’t know if you all have an Ollie’s in your area, but if you do check there. I got my copy of Anna and the French Kiss for 1.99!

  7. I absolutely LOVE this feature! It’s so awesome to share what kinds of books you pick up because of fellow bloggers’ recommendations — if I started to list some, my comment would probably end up being miles long LOL! x) You and Missie would probably have your own whole sections in it!

    And a million yeses to Anna and the French Kiss!! Oh my gosh, that would probably be my favourite contemporary book TO DATE. It was so sweet and funny and completely charming — I hope you love it as much as everyone else seems to! 😉 <3

    Yay for Rec Reads! I haven't heard of any of the others before, but I think I might go check out the reviews so I can be intrigued like you were! 😉

    • Jade Jade says:

      Thanks MiMi! I see you also adore Anna and the French Kiss. I’m so glad to know that it comes so highly recommended. It makes me want to bump it up on the list.

  8. Molli says:

    Jaaaaaade, YAY that you bought DARK LOVER and KISS OF MIDNIGHT. Ward’s BDB series is my favorite of the two!

    Awwwwwww. I am extremely flattered you bought ANNA off of my review. 🙂 I have LOLA and am psyched to read it.

    Thanks for dropping by my blog!

    • Jade Jade says:

      Yes I’m excited for both of those series and I’m definitely excited for Anna. As you everyone has mentioned it so it must be phenomenal! And your review helped me make the decision to finally buy it! Thanks for stopping by!

  9. Yay! I love BDB and I hope you’ll like it too! Just gets better and better. And I’m super curious about The Book Thief and Anna and the French Kiss! Hope you’ll enjoy them all:)

    • Jade Jade says:

      Yes I hear the greatest things about all of those series and books. I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on Anna and The Book Theif if you ever read them.

  10. Thanks Jade for including me in your post. I was keeping track of where I got my recommendations but then my system kind of fell apart. Now I use Pinterest to keep track. It’s so much easier. Now I can participate in posts like this. At the very least I can give bloggers credit for helping me spend all my money on books 🙂
