Books you loved: August edition


It's that time of the month!  Books You Loved time.  So we had a great collection of links last month.

Books I added to my TBR pile included – and it was really hard to choose this time:

Fiction


 Island House by Poesie Graeme-Evans – thanks Silver's Reviews









On the Island by Tracey Garvis Graves – thanks Tome's  Devotee

Gone by Cathi Hanauer – thanks Book Him Danno! 

Night school by CJ Daugherty – thanks I Solemnly Swear that I am Up to No Good


11/22/63 by Stephen King – thanks Home is Where the Book Is



Non Fiction

French Kids Eat Everything by Karen Le Billon – thanks to Dirty Diaper Chic 


Mount Vernon Love Story by Mary Higgins Clark – thank you Laurie LC Lewis – A View from the Other Side of the Hill  

 The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg – thank you to both Words from the Sowul and Simply Richer Living 

Drop Dead Healthy by AJ Jacobs – thanks to Joy's Book Blog








Old faves that I was reminded about:

Kidnapped by Robert Louis Stevenson, thanks Attempted Bloggery 

Catcher in the Rye by JD Salinger, thanks All Consuming Media 

One for the Money by Janet Evanovich, thanks April Books 


So please go to town putting into Mr Linky below links to posts about books that you loved.  They don't have to be ones you read in the last month.  It is always great to be reminded of older books that one might have missed.
So just put your name, and then the title of the book and the author into the first box and then paste the url for the post about the book into the second one – and Bob's Your Uncle!

Don't feel you need to leave a comment.  It would be nice if you visited some of the other links.  Hope you all have a great month.

  37. Thanks for checking out Sarah's Book blog through the windsor locks library! I got your comment and have subscribed to your website. I'm not sure how to "like" your site like you suggested. If you tell me (i'm ridiculously behind the times with tech stuff) i'll "like" it. :)
