Epic Recs: May

epic recssgif

Epic Recs started out as a feature in which Amber and I force each other to read books. Like an impromptu book club, consisting of just the two of us. Or a game of truth or dare without the truth. It’s awesome. Our friendship depends on these books, so there’s no pressure whatsoever. We both like to force people to read books, so it was an excellent excuse to test our book pushing. Because of enthusiastic and rather threatening comments, we decided to open it up for everyone to join. So do you like book pushing or do you just want a fun book club-ish feature to participate in? Hi!

What are the rules? 1) Find a friend you want to recommend books to (or two friends, or three friends, etc.) OR sign up here and we’ll assign you to a partner. 2) Link up your Epic Recs post at the beginning of each month (stating what you are planning to read, who Epic Rec’d it and what they are reading in return). You are welcome to request a new partner every month. But if you partnership doesn’t work out, you are responsible for telling your partner this. We are not a dating service that breaks up for you. It’s your party! You are welcome to participate every month or just once. It’s totally up to you. You are allowed to deny recs, as long as you and your partner are okay with it. This is totally up to you. Amber and I like forcing books on each other, so we don’t really deny them, but hey, whatever you want!

April was an excellent month for Epic Recs. Amber and I both read our recs and we both really enjoyed them. Is this the first time this ever happened? Maybe. Amber made me read Fire with Fire by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian, which was a lot of fun at firs and then crazy at the end. I loved it. Lillia and Reeve. That’s really all. I made Amber read Something Real by Heather Demetrios, which she really enjoyed as well. Yay us! This month I’m making Amber read Open Road Summer by Emery Lord because I love love love it. I really need her to feel this way as well, though I’m not sure if she’ll like Reagan. Amber is making me read Vicious by V.E. Schwab which she says I’ll love, and I’m very excited about because VILLAIN’S POV!

    Why won’t I like Reagan? And why didn’t you warn me about this before? XD

  3. YAY. Soooo happy that you’ll be reading Vicious. It’s so good and Victor Vale is everything.

  4. Such a good idea! I love recommending books plus I’m pretty pushy with the books I love. I would only worry about not having the book available. I have no monies to be spending on books… ):

    I am so excited that you recommended Open Road Summer for Amber, as you know that I too love love love that book! I do hope she likes it. And I’m curious to see what you’ll think of Vicious – I do kind of want to read that one too!
