7 Books I Want to Read Thanks to Pinterest!

Just like everyone else I am pretty addicted to Pinterest! (Follow me here!) I use it for pretty much everything, including finding different book recommendations or other bookish things! Which is what led me to this post. I usually use Goodreads (Be my friend) to find recommendations, but I am learning that Pinterest knows me better!  So, as I was scrolling through my pins I found several books I would love to get my hands on and I narrowed it down to the top 7!

7 Books I Want to Read Thanks to Pinterest!

Book 1

A self-help book for my sensitive self!

7 Books I Want to Read Thanks to Pinterest!

Book Snippet: 
Are you “too shy” or “too sensitive” according to others? Do noise and confusion quickly overwhelm you? If your answers are yes, you may be a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP). (Goodreads)

Why This Book: 
To be honest it was the question: “Are you “too shy” or “too sensitive” according to others?” I get this way too much in life. Everyone always tells me I need to stop being so sensitive, or better yet stop wearing your heart on your sleeve. So, maybe this book will help me when life just becomes too much!

Book 2

Nonfiction Forensics

7 Books I Want to Read Thanks to Pinterest!

Book Snippet: 
“Missing & Murdered” explains the practice of forensic anthropology and the skills base of skeletal biology, while at the same time debunking the CSI effect (the phenomenon of popular television raising crime victims real-world expectations of forensic science, especially crime-scene investigation and DNA testing).  (Goodreads)

Why this Book: 
I am really into all the crime shows on TV, and this book just reminded me of those! Now, nonfiction isn’t usually my thing, because they tend to bore me, but this book really caught my attention. To get a little bit of insight on how a crime is solved by forensic anthropology would be pretty cool!

Book 3

Hello creepy thriller!

7 Books I Want to Read Thanks to Pinterest!

Book Snippet: 
Clarissa is becoming more and more frightened of her colleague, Rafe. He won’t leave her alone, and he refuses to take no for an answer. He is always there. (Goodreads)

Why This Book:
I am not into physiological thrillers, but this books blurb pulled me in! I am not one to read books that will most likely freak me out, but I am wanting to step out of my book comfort zone. This book would be the perfect way to start getting into some new genres.

Book 4

Book Snippet: 
Manhattan art dealer Sera James watched her world crumble at the altar two years ago, and her heart is still fragile. Her desire for distraction reignites a passion for a mysterious portrait she first saw as a young girl–a painting of a young violinist with piercing blue eyes. (Goodreads)

Why This Book: 
This one jumped out at me because of the gorgeous cover and the title. I love butterflies and violins, but I was not expecting this book to be what the blurb said. I’m not entirely sure what I was expecting, but a  historical, Christian romance was not it. I still can’t wait to see what adventure this book holds though!

Book 5

7 Books I Want to Read Thanks to Pinterest!

Book Snippet: 
For Olivia, representing Jack is a way to make up for past regrets, to absolve herself of guilt from a tragic decision, a secret she has held for twenty years. But as the evidence against him mounts, she is forced to confront her doubts. The man she knew could not have done this. But what if she never really knew him? (Goodreads)

Why This Book:
I seriously thought this was a good love story! Not about a murder and having to represent your ex! I can’t wait to dive in!

Book 6

Salem witch trials anybody!

7 Books I Want to Read Thanks to Pinterest!

Book Snippet: 
Three sisters escape the Salem witch trials when the eldest casts a spell that hurdles their souls forward through time. After centuries separated, fate has finally reunited them in the present day.  (Goodreads)

Why This Book: 
I loved learning about the Salem Witch Trials, and to get my hands on a book that had those words in the blurb would be awesome! So, of course the blurb is what caught my attention, and the cover!

Book 7

A saving each other love story!

7 Books I Want to Read Thanks to Pinterest!

Book Snippet: 
Weighted down by the loss of her parents, Blythe McGuire struggles to keep her head above water as she trudges through her last year at Matthews College. Then a chance meeting sends Blythe crashing into something she doesn’t expect—an undeniable attraction to a dark-haired senior named Chris Shepherd, whose past may be even more complicated than her own. (Goodreads)

Why This Book: 
I wasn’t expecting a love story with this one either, but when I read the blurb, I couldn’t pass it up. I love those stories where the characters don’t know how much they really have in common, and how much they can truly save each other.

Of course, there are a ton of other books that Pinterest has me hooked on, but these are the ones that really got my attention. You may see them in upcoming TBR list! So, stay tuned to see when these books might just pop up!

Also, let me know if Pinterest has inspired any of the books you have read or want to read!

    I love the Highly Sensitive Person books by the Arons! I have a few of their books and it helped me a lot in times that I was struggling with being a HSP. I’m curious to see what you think!

    I have a challenged myself to read a book a month, which have mostly been self help so the first book would definitely be on my list. But I am also really into Salem witches, so I am very keen to read this one too!
