Stop Telling me What to Read

Just stop.

How many times have I said on here that I DO NOT TAKE BOOK SUGGESTIONS? I wish I had a count. Because I’ve said it more than enough. But it seems that every week someone will read a post or page of mine and then comment that I should read this book or that one.

I mean, do you realize what you’re even doing when you do that? You’re making yourself out to be some kind of authority on which books should be read and which ones shouldn’t. Not to mention the fact that you know absolutely nothing about me. In what world are you living in?

There are a few people on here who I’ve asked specifically to recommend books to me, for various reasons. But when I say a few people, I’m talking about a handful. Maybe. Not every person who happens upon my blog. It’s ridiculous and annoying. And when I respond that I don’t take recommendations the other person wants to act like I’m saying something outrageous and pretend to be upset.

Just leave me to decide what I should read next. Thanks.

Suggested Reads for Spring Break

For some people down here it’s already Spring Break. Which is funny because it’s rained the last 72 hours. Anyway, I thought I’d compile a list of books for you all to read even though most of you are well past the age of being out of school this week. Might as well get to the list since I’m already a day late.

Just kidding.

If you’ve been reading my blog for any amount of time, then you know that I don’t recommend books. Ever. I could refer you to this post from last week. Or I could refer you to this one from last year. No matter what’s going on, I won’t be suggesting any books. BUT this is one of those rare times during the year that I’ll make an exception to my rule of not taking any suggestions. Although I have no idea what would qualify as a good book to read for Spring Break. I’m sure some of y’all know. Maybe.

So, which books should I be reading this week?


On this day in 2014 I published Spring Break for the Book Lover.

 

Suggested Reading for the Week of Halloween

I’m sure you’re well aware of the fact that Halloween is this week. Well what better time to read a horror story or something that might keep you awake at night than this week, right? But no, I’m not going to be doing the suggesting here…you are! Y’all know I never recommend books or take recommendations because my taste in reading is my taste and yours is yours. But I’m making an exception. I don’t read horror stories or anything remotely scary at all. I’ve just never really been interested, so I have no idea where to even begin. But I’m hoping some of you have a better idea than I do, and you can pass along your knowledge.

So tell me, what are some books that are sure to get me in the Halloween spirit?
