Anonymous Book Recommendations

Hello everyone! So yesterday I decided to have a little fun and ask people anonymously online what their favorite books were. I frequently use the apps Whisper and Yik Yak to vent or talk to random people. I decided since everything is anonymous people are probably more willing to give book recommendations because if they’re weird no one will know it’s  your favorite. I’m going to list all the book recommendations I got by app and by posting and I will link the amazon page to each one.

Yik Yak

I got a good response on here from my college feed but only two suggestions from my home feed. Since I live off campus and Yik Yak uses your location to determine where you can post, I had two places to ask the question.

L’Etranger  or The Stranger by Albert Camus
