BBAW Because of a Blog

Today for BBAW we are asked to share a book that we read because of a blog, and maybe share a little bit about that book. The book that comes to mind for me is The Kingmaking by Helen Hollick. I just finished this book and I loved it! I will be posting my review in a couple of weeks but I will share with you that when I realized that this book was about King Arthur, I was a bit turned off by it.


But I took the time to read the review that was provided by Dar from Peeking Between the Pages and decided that I had to read this book. About a month after reading Dar's review, I won my own copy from So Many Precious Books, So Little Time, so Thank You ladies! I am so thankful for the reviews that I read that help me open my mind to read a book that I may not have considered otherwise.

I remember Dar's review of this one. I remember the striking cover too.

Dar does write great reviews, so I can see why she influenced you.

I added this to my to-read list back when it was making the rounds, but haven't gotten ahold of it yet.

It's fun to find books that way, isn't it! I just came across the book #2 Pendragon's Banner, now I think I'll pick up The Kingmaking :)
