My Favorite Books that were Recommended to Me

Happy Friday, bibliovores! Today is another day in which I didn't feel like writing/posting a review, but did feel like posting something... so I'm doing another favorites post! You can check out my my favorite YA books with "blood" in the title HERE, favorite YA books that need a sequel HERE, favorite YA books with hate-to-love romance HERE, favorite books with the word "shadow" in the title HERE, favorite adult books (alphabet style) HERE, favorite Jane-Austen-Inspired YA books HERE, favorite YA foreign editions posts HERE, favorite YA books (alphabet style) HERE, favorite YA books with one-word titles HERE, favorite swoons from YA books HERE.

Here are some of my favorite books that were recommended to me! 

Fated (Servants of Fate, #3)

The whole series was recommended to me by the wonderful Pili, but I especially loved Fated!

Time Served (Time Served #1)

One of my favorite adult romance books of all time recommended by Dear Author!

Beauty and the Barbarian (Highland Force, #3)

I read this one quite recently and loved it. Thanks, Renee!

Quite possibly my favorite Tessa Bailey book of all time. It's an old one, recommended by Jessirae!

The Naming (Pellinor, #1)  The Riddle (The Books of Pellinor, #2)
The Crow (The Books of Pellinor, #3)  The Singing (The Books of Pellinor, #4)

I read these books a long time ago, when I was a young teen. I enjoyed them then, but I have a feeling I would enjoy them even more since time has passed. They were my sister's favorite books back in the day (and still are). Thanks for the rec, Lily!

Sanctum (Guards of the Shadowlands, #1)

I remember seeing Ashley pick up this book and love it. She has good taste!

The Deal (Off-Campus, #1)

A looooot of people recommended this book to me, but I remember Nereyda pushing it hard!

Angelfall (Penryn & the End of Days, #1)

Pili (who is spot-on with her recs for me) recommended the whole series, which I enjoyed, but I particularly loved book one! The conclusion was also really good. =)

I'm a firm believer in giving credit where credit is due, and these wonderful people deserve a shout-out for recommending books that I ended up loving (and honestly, just recommending books in general). There are many more that I am not thinking of, and these are just a few of my favorites. As always, if you have any recommendations for me, please tell me! =)
