Epic Recs is a feature started by Judith @ Paper Riot and Amber @ Books of Amber, in which a group of people (2, 3, 4, doesn’t matter!) force the other to read a book that they love/think the other person will love. This post sums it up pretty awesomely.
I was so excited when the lovely Vy @ Vy’s Blog suggested this idea to me, Jen @ Books and Other Happy Ever Afters, and Willa @ Willa’s Ramblings. We’re always going crazy over books together, and then inevitably, one of us hasn’t read the book. So, to remedy that problem and share the books that we love, we’ve decided to participate in this awesome feature!
We have this dandy little spreadsheet that Willa and Vy whipped up that organizes who is doing what (I don’t even know how they organized everything- it’s too complicated for me! =P). But for the month of December, I recommended Jen a book, while Willa was the person who recommended me a book this month.
I recommended Jen:
- Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi: I actually gave Jen several options to choose from (I can’t believe she hasn’t read so many of my favorite books!!), and she chose this one. UtNS is one of my favorites, and it’s most definitely a book that lingers. Even though Jen isn’t the biggest fan of sci-fi/dystopia, I know she’s going to fall head over heels for the awesome characters in this book (and well, of course, the romance).
Willa recommended me:
- Don’t Turn Around by Michelle Gangon: I absolutely love thrillers, just because of the awesome, heart-pumping, heart-clenching, action-thrilling moments present in them. This book seems to have all of those. Willa really enjoyed this one, and so I’m confident I’m going to love it as well!
And that’s it for now! I’ll be posting my review for Don’t Turn Around near the end of the month, after I read during winter break. I am so excited to be doing this! Spreading the bookish love is one of the reasons I decided to be a book blogger in the first place, and so I love that I’m doing it so directly now.
Have you read either of the books mentioned in this post? Do you have any recs for me? Are you participating in this feature? Let me know!
