Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme.
Are your book choices influenced by friends and family? Do their recommendations carry weight for you? Or do you choose your books solely by what you want to read?
Generally, my reading is influenced by what I want to read at the time. I take recommendations and suggestions from friends, family, and other bloggers, though – which is part of how my TBR pile/wishlist has gotten so big. I particularly take suggestions from people who know my reading tastes and/or are close enough to me to know what I’m really interested in. Those recommendations tend to be the books that I might never have seen on my own, but end up absolutely loving.
