Do You Trust Me?

I talk about books a lot on this blog, whether it be in the form of formal reviews, casual mentions, TBR lists, or book cover love, and I started wondering if it's had any impact.

I'm curious how many of you (even you lurkers!) have read a book as a result of a mention or recommendation here.  Let's say in the last year or so.

To refresh your memory, here's a quick, but not necessarily comprehensive, list...

1.  Dark Road to Darjeeling by Deanna Raybourn
2.  The Thing About Jane Spring by Sharon Krum
3.  The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen by Syrie James
4.  The Secret Diaries of Charlotte Bronte by Syrie James
5.  The Luckiest Girl by Beverly Cleary
6.  Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery
7.  Royal Blood by Rhys Bowen
8.  Nick of Time by Ted Bell
9.  The Case of the Missing Servant by Tarquin Hall
10. Murder Boogies With Elvis by Anne George
11. I, Coriander by Sally Gardner
12. The Swiss Courier by Tricia Goyer and Mike Yorkey
13. The Secret History of the Pink Carnation series by Lauren Willig  
14. The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate by Jacqueline Kelly
15. Petronella Saves Nearly Everyone by Dene Low
16. The School of Essential Ingredients by Erica Bauermeister

Read any of these?  If not, what are you waiting for??

i love reading other peoples opinions on books. I did by the lost memoirs of Jane Austin... I have yet to find the time to read it though.

So yes I trust you haha

I trust you and always add your recommendations to my tbr pile which has sadly gone totally untouched cause of a lack of time not trust.

I've kept a lot of them in mind for someday, but I've had so many other books that I *have* to read that I haven't gotten to add a lot of plain old fun reading to my list. Someday, I hope!

Capurnia Tate is on my shelf--two books down from the top of the heap!

You will love it, Green Girl!

I have not read any of these, yet but I am reading one you might be familiar with....Unladylike Pursuits. I am enjoying it very much and will add those to my list next!
