Reading recs are hard

How do I tell people about things I like and actually do them justice?

How do I tell people “I think you in particular would like this particular story” without being super presumptuous and rude?

The second one is the main reason why I can’t recommend Hitherby Dragons to people.

There are a very few people on Tumblr where I feel all sad-puppy about the fact that I follow them but they don’t follow me, and for like half of them, the main reason it makes me sad is that it means I see all their fic recommendations and meaningful quotes but they don’t see mine.

Semi-relatedly, I’m still periodically asking Sparkly to read Code Name Verity. I do worry about pestering em too much, but ey recommends books for me specifically so it’s not too weird.
