Yep, that’s right. Quadruplets. A while back, Octavia did a discussion about book twins (I’m hers :D). I’m going to do my own, expanding on that because I now have 3 of them!
Book Quadruplet #1
Ashley @ Nose Graze. Ashley was my first ever book twin! Out of all of them, I think her and I have the most similar tastes. For a couple of years now she’s always been the first place I go when I want to decide whether or not to read a book. I mean, there’s a TON of books that we felt the same exact way about:
And many books where our ratings are similar, only varying by one star:
[We both enjoyed The Ward and Adam and Eve, and both of those books have horrible ratings on Goodreads.] Of course, there’s also those few books that she loved that I didn’t (but with these, nearly EVERYONE loved them, I was just the black sheep):
And a couple that I loved that she didn’t (I was the black sheep on Chaos of Stars):
Book Quadruplet #2
Octavia @ Read.Sleep.Repeat. I discovered that we were book twins sometime at the end of last year, I think! I always check her blog or Goodreads to see if she’s read a book I’m unsure about. We tend to agree on most books, giving them the same rating…
[We both liked House of Ivy & Sorrow, even though it has 1 and 2 star reviews in abundance, and we both are fine with admitting that we liked Twilight!] But again, like with Ashley, there were those books I was the black sheep on that she still loved:
And still a few that I enjoyed that she didn’t.
Octavia knows my tastes well enough to be able to tell when we’ll disagree on a book. Case in point, I saw she rated Lailah 5 stars, and was about to go download it, and saw that book quadruplet #3 (I’ll get to her, never fear!) gave it a very poor rating. (I may have had a moment of panic: MY BOOK TWINS ARE DISAGREEING, WHAT DO I DO?!?!) Then Octavia saved the day by saying it was one I probably wouldn’t like. Crisis averted, thanks to book quadruplets.
Book Quadruplet #3
Alyssa @ Eater of Books. She’s my recently discovered book twin! While visiting a couple of books I hated on Goodreads (I can’t even remember which ones), I noticed that she was at the top of the list on both with the same exact rating. Out of curiosity, I clicked on her profile and compared books, and whaddaya know! Book twin discovered :D
We have a TON of same ratings, especially with 4 star books for some reason. I only included some because there were so many of them!
[Like with Octavia, we both enjoyed House of Ivy & Sorrow despite its 3.6 average rating. We are also both comfortable enough to admit we liked Twilight haha!] Quite a few similar ratings:
And because no two people can ever agree on EVERYTHING, of course our opinion will vary sometimes (and again, many of those books I was the black sheep on):
Basically, if there’s something I want to read but am unsure about (which I find happens quite often these days), I go visit each of these ladies’ blogs or Goodreads to see what they thought because I trust their opinions to lead me in the right direction!
