Welcome to Day Two of Armchair BEA. Today we’re spotlighting some of our favorites of the year so far.
Luckily, I track those each month as I link to my reviews.
In January, it was Mudbound, by Hillary Jordan. (Click titles/covers for reviews)
Next: The Bungalow, by Sarah Jio
Blue Monday, by Nicci French
The Beginner’s Goodbye, by Anne Tyler
11/22/63, by Stephen King
These books exemplify another side effect of blogging. Although I’d read Stephen King, Anne Tyler, and Nicci French in my pre-blogging days, I first learned of authors Sarah Jio and Hillary Jordan through blogging.
Maybe I would have stumbled upon them on my own, but I somehow doubt it. I first read Hillary Jordan’s When She Woke last year, and then just had to read Mudbound.
What are your favorites this year? Has blogging helped inform your reading choices?
