I Read It! takes place the first Tuesday of each month.
The idea is for you to link up your review of a book that you read at someone’s recommendation.
You can link up any review from the previous month that shares that information. If you don’t share that information in your reviews, then write a new post for I Read It! and link back to the reviews as you add in the information.
For example, “This month I read a bunch of books, but I was especially excited to read Candor as recommended by Dawn at 5 Minutes for Books.” That sentence could appear in your review when it posts at any time throughout the month (hopefully linking back to the original review, or at least the blogger’s site). Or you could write a post telling your readers about I Read It, and include a sentence such as that, linking back to your original review(s).
What about the review prompted you to pick this book up? Did it meet your expectations?
Give us your review and tell us if you agreed or disagreed with the person who recommended it to you.
You are welcome to link up more than one review if you reviewed more than one book on someone’s recommendation this month. You can simply link up to that post, or especially if you reviewed more than one, perhaps you could write a new post, introducing and linking back to your previous reviews.
So if you keep lists of books you want to read, add in the name/blog of the source of the recommendation as well, and then join in and spread the love.

I know I appreciate hearing what books appealed to others so I think this particular carnival is fun.
I plan on linking up some reviews on the next one as there are a few that have been reviewed that I haven’t gotten to yet (but want to)! December 29th. My calendar is marked!
I don’t have time to get in on this one today, but I did read Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer. Okay, it’s partially because my thoughts are so conflicting when it came to this last book. lol I probably will write something about it eventually. 🙂
What a fun idea! I’m looking forward to seeing which books other people read and reviewed!

I read Wildcard by Robin Shope. My only warning is : You will not want to put it down! Great
suspense/romance book. It will keep you guessing till the end.
I read The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin, I really liked the book. When I saw it, the title grabbed my attention; I had to pick it up and thumb through it, then I had to buy it. Reading her book has prompted me to delve further into the subject. I’ve always had an interest in psychology and philosophy, while reading this I made a list of books mentioned that I plan to read myself.
