I know y’all know by now that I hate those ridiculous book lists that are always so easy to find on the internet. For summer. For fall. For men. For writers. They’re everywhere.
Well I’m not pulling any punches. I also hate when authors do it. Like why does it seem like every prominent author releases their “books for___” at some point during each year? Am I the only one who doesn’t think they’re even reading what they recommend? Cause it just so happens that the books are ALWAYS new releases. How interesting.
Are you interested when authors recommend a list of books for whatever reason? I’m not. Ever. Let me find my books on my own.

Oh hell yes. If Patrick Rothfuss recommends something, I’ll freaking read it.

I can’t tell if this is serious or not. 😂
That’s the beauty of it.
I’ll just assume you agree with me then. Cause duhh. 😉
Well, a lot of authors are sent endless stacks of ARCs, so it makes sense that they’re recommending new releases. And, a huge part of their craft is reading, so I think they’re at least reading most of the titles they’re recommending.
Sent ARCs and being asked to write blurbs. They obviously don’t read everything they get. Likely don’t read everything that appears on these lists either.
John Guillen’s Book List:
My list would remain mine. Wouldn’t say it’s best or something any other person would or should be interested in.
