Top 5 Wednesday: Books You've Read Because of Booksphere


      I haven't done one of these in a hella long time. Shit I'm not sure if I've done one of these this year. I'm sure I have, I just have no memory of the last one I did. So, without further ado, let's do this!

5. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

I don't think I read this book when it first came out, but when I first came across booktube, there were so many videos I saw that had this series in it. Shortly after, I discovered Whitney from whitteynovels who absolutely loves the Shatter Me series, so I decided I just had to read it, especially since my best friend decided she wanted to read it too. I loved the first two books more than words can express, but that last book... ehhh. I'm still not sure if I'm going to read the new books Tahereh is going to release, but that's TBD.

4. To All the Boys I've Loved Before series by Jenny Han

I don't remember who exactly persuaded me into reading this, but I remember it just being everywhere when I first started this whole bookish thing. I was really into ya contemporaries when I first started, so this was right up my ally.

3. Colleen Hoover's books

So basically any book I've ever read by Colleen Hoover was because of the booksphere. The first Colleen Hoover book I read was "Ugly Love" because that was the one I heard the most buzz about. There is only one Colleen Hoover book that I have hated with every fiber of my being.

2. The Lux Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout

This is hands down one of my favorite series that I have discovered from the booksphere, specifically booktube. I want to say it was Kat from katytastic who really convinced me to give Lux a chance, and I am so glad I gave it a chance. That being said, it's been a hella long time since I read Lux, so I don't know if my current adult self likes it as much as my teen self did.

1. A Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J. Maas

This is hands down one of my favorite series of all times, and it is thanks to the booksphere that I read it. I was initially hesitant because I wasn't a fan of her other series, but boy oh boy does this series make me feel things. The second book was hands down my favorite book. The third book... disappointing, but still good.

So those are just a handful of the books that I have read because of the booksphere. I try not to buy into the hype, but it does happen, and sometimes, that's a good thing. So tell me, have you read any of the books on this list? And if so, did you read them because of the booksphere? Tell me down in the comments.
