blaming fellow book bloggers

Time for another round of book blogger blaming. I can't wait for my reader to be back in two-digit unread blog posts!

This time around I'd like to blame:

Kristi @ The Story Siren for Mr. Darcy, Vampire by Amanda Grange - simply because of the title.

Then, Mari @ MariReads finally made me add Cracked Up To Be by Courtney Summers to the never-ending wishlist.

Bookfool @ Bookfoolery & Babble did her part by adding Ally Carter's I'd Tell You I Love You But Then I'd Have to Kill You, a YA spy novel.

For Lev Grossman's The Magicians I have to blame a number of people, so here's the list: Kathy @ bermudaonion, Michael Kindness and Ann Kingman @ Books On The Nightstand (actually, I have to blame them for at least one book every week!)

Chris @ book-a-rama for French Milk by Lucy Knisley

Stacy @ Stacy's Books for The Funny Thing Is... by Ellen Degeneres and Manhunting by Jennifer Crusie.

More blame goes to Chris @ book-a-rama and Michael Kindness and Ann Kingman @ Books On The Nightstand for Gesine Bullock-Prado's Confections of a Closet Master Baker. The chocolate on the cover alone would have done it, but the books sounds great!

ExtremeReader @ Extreme Reader Book Reviews has to live with the blame for Meridian by Amber Kizer.

Lori Handeland's Blue Moon ended on my wish list because of Irina's review on her German book blog.

Kristen from BookNAround added Victoria in Reel Life by Adriana Trigiani to my wishlist.

Hannah @ Word Lily gets some blame for Melody Carlson's What Matters Most - so does Kaye from Pudgy Penguin Perusals, by the way!

Natasha @ the Maw Books Blog gets some well-deserved blame for Jill Smolinski's The Next Thing on my List - I like lists, so this one should be fun!

Rebecca at Lost In Books deserves some blame for Saffron Dreams by Shaila Abdullah.

The Bibliophilic Book Blog made sure I add P.C. Cast's Divine By Mistake, the first in the Partholon series, on my wish list.

Lenore of Presenting Lenore persuaded me with her interview of Lauren Bjorkman (as if that was really necessary after her review) to add My Invented Life by Lauren Bjorkman

Nely @ all about {n} talked about Jessica's Guide To Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey, which I think might be the brain candy I'm looking for for next summer.

Drey @ drey's library described Kylie Brant's Waking Nightmare so well I hope to read it soon, so let me blame drey for this one :-)

Carrie @ Books and Movies reviewed Dear Fatty by Dawn French - and as I love Dawn French, this one has to be on my wish list!

Kristen @ BookNAround, drey @ drey's library and Amy @ My Friend Amy (even if she didn't like it) added Japan Took The JAP Out of Me by Lisa Fineberg to my list.

Wendy @ Caribousmom is one of my fellow bloggers who is responsible for The Girl She Used To Be by David Christofano to end up on my wish list.

And the last one for now is Karin @ Karin's Book Nook for adding After by Amy Efaw to my never-ending wish list.


  1. I never keep track of who is to blame for everything that ends up on my wish list. I should do that. Hope you love the spy novel. I'll second The Girl She Used to Be by David Christofano. I reviewed that one, earlier this year. I considered it a nearly flawless novel.

  2. LOL, we're so proud to be blamed. Thank you!!
    Such a great list you have there.

  3. If you get The Magicians, I hope you enjoy it more than I did. I think a lot of it was over my head!

  4. Hope you like Ellen and Manhunting (although I think you might like other Crusie books more :))!
    You've got quite a reading list!

  5. Reading other blogs is such a danger, isn't it? I think my bank account would be better off if I only focused on mine and pretended no one else's existed. ;-)

  6. I love being blamed for adding to people's TBR piles!!!

  7. Bookfool - I decided to keep track that way so I can check back on those bloggers once I've read the book to see what exactly they thought (compared to what I think). Plus, I have to blame someone for it

    Ann Kingman & Michael Kindness - I can actually blame you with each and every podcast you publish! I always find at least one book I want to get!!! I even have a notebook especially for your book recommendations to keep track of them. I think I should do a special post about all the books you added to my wish list :-)

    Kathy - I hope I'll like it. It seems to be such a great book :-)

    Stacy - So do I! But the books sound sooo great, I doubt I won't like them.

    Kristen - I totally agree, reading other book blogs is very dangerous for my bank account and my wallet LOL But what would I do without my fellow book bloggers???

    Amy - Thanks, I thinks so, too.
