Books You Loved: October 2013


Before heading into the new collection of Books You Loved, I would like to mention some of the books in last month's collection.  There were almost 100 of them so if you would like to check them out please head over to the original post or to this Pinboard.

Hungry by Darlene Barnes was reviewed by Guiltless Reading who said 'Such a feel-good book! A touching, funny, and enjoyable memoir of Darlene's journey from frat house cook to someone memorable and important in the lives of young men.'

I had to mention a book where the main character is a blogger!  Blogger Girl by Meredith Schorr was reviewed by Melissa over at Chick Lit Central.  She said 'Blogger Girl is snarky, humorous and comforting all at the same time'

Michelle of Jarrah Jungle reviewed Man Vs. Child by Dominic Knight.  Michelle said 'the novel was funny, witty, and very cheeky, I found myself grinning like an idiot on public transport on more than a few occasions'  I also recommend you to check out Michelle's star rating descriptions – highly original.

Blackmoore by Julianne Donaldson was reviewed by Shauna of I Love to Read & Review Books.  Shauna said 'I could go on and on about this breath-taking book, for it truly is a definite must-read for anyone who loves a good love story like I do.'

Now, on to the new "library" for October.  Please add your books that you loved to the collection – just pop your name and the name of the book into the first Mr Linky box and paste the url for your review into the second one.

To help you check out the other links I will be pinning them to this Pinboard so you can see the covers at a glance.

Happy booking!

  3. I entered a short Paranormal romance set in exotic island. According to the author the sequel is in the pipelines and all the reviews point to readers waiting to read more about these characters!

  4. Though not a happy story, hope fills its crevices. Riveting women's fiction at its best. There's a reason this one raced to the top of the NYT Bestsellers list.

  6. I'm listing two recently read books that I enjoyed: The Warden by Anthony Trollope, a classic - an oldie but goodie, and The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith, aka J.K. Rowling - not quite in the same league as Trollope but still an enjoyable read.

  8. I just found an Elizabeth Chadwick book that I had somehow missed reading when it was first published. She is one of my favorite Historical Fiction writers, and so I was thrilled to read this fascinating story of William of Normandy and William the Conqueror in the "The Winter Mantle"

  14. I love your idea of creating a pinboard of these books. The visual is so pretty. I am following your board now :)

    I also added my favorite book in October, a slightly oldish one called The Tiger's Wife by Tea Obreht

  20. Good list, as always, thank you ver much for this, Carole. I have posted "Wonder" this month, a book for children and adults alike, about a young boy who is not the way everyone else expects him to be and how he copes with it with the help of his family and friends. Lovely book, so charming.

  21. "Unfinished Symphony" is the third book of the Logan Family series by V. C. Andrews. I know it's an old book, but it's the first time I read them.

  22. Hi,

    I read May We Be Forgiven - a slightly unhinged tale of family life in the aftermath of a violent crime. Bizarre but amazing.
