BBAW is so much fun! This is my first time to participate and I have a feeling I’m going to join in again next year. I enjoy browsing through everyone else’s posts and leaving comments. Anyway, for today, the topic is: “Unexpected Treasure – We invite you to share with us a book or genre you tried due to the influence of another blogger. What made you cave in to try something new and what was the experience like?”
Ever since I started reading, I’ve always known that I liked fantasy. Later on, I discovered that I was more into epic fantasy or high fantasy than anything else. I wasn’t really into urban fantasy until I found out about an amazing series from fellow book bloggers – the Kate Daniels books by Ilona Andrews. Turns out, I just haven’t been reading the right kind of urban fantasy books. I can’t even remember who was the first one who recommended this series but I do remember that several book blogger friends were excited when Magic Bleeds came out this year. After hearing so many good things about the series, I decided to give it a try and the rest, as they say, is history. I fell in love with Kate Daniels and I’ve been singing her praises ever since. I’ve gotten other friends to read the books and they’ve all enjoyed them as well. So thank you fellow book bloggers for encouraging me to read what has become one of my favorite series! 🙂
For those who are interested in my reading experience of these books, click on the images below for my reviews. I promise, I didn’t include any spoilers so it’s safe to check them out even though you’ve never read the books.
What about the others out there, what are your picks for your BBAW Unexpected Treasure?
