The Book Blogger Recommendation list ranking order was painstakingly compiled factoring in how high the book was ranked on each bloggers personal list as well as how many bloggers mentioned the book.

This list includes middle grade, young adult and adult books from the classics to the newly published in all genres.

A huge thanks to all of the wonderful book bloggers who took the time to submit their favorite books

Coming Soon
