Books You Loved - March edition



From the 70 or so links in February's Books You Loved I have chosen  a few reviews to feature.  To see more of the February books at a glance just pop over to this Pinboard.
First a romance, How to Choose a Sweetheart by Nigel Bird.  Me, Bookshelf and I said 'Great characters, funny events and brilliant story make this a must read.'

Katie at Doing Dewey brought over How to Write Short by Roy Peter Clark.  Katie said 'Given how much we write short, from reviews to tweets, I think this would make a fantastic reference book for any blogger.'
Judy at Keep the Wisdom brought us The Signature of All Things by Elizabeth Gilbert.  She said 'Oh my. I loved this book. I didn't want it to end. I wish I was still reading it.'

Bookalicious Babe Book Reviews brought us Maeve Binchy's last book A Week in Winter.  Sue said 'What a sweet, gentle, engaging novel about the power of nature, rest, and kind people. It shows that sometimes we all need to remove ourselves from the crazy in our lives and be quiet and still.'

 And now on to the March collection.  To add a post about a book you loved just pop your name/name of the book into the first Mr Linky box and paste the url for your post about it into the second box.
Thanking you in advance for sharing your lovely books with me and our readers.  I'll be pinning each link to this Pinboard so you can easily choose which ones to check out in more detail.

  4. Tin Star is space travel, people/beings from other worlds and a romance. I love it enough to buy a copy for my personal library. I'll read it again.

  13. Thank you for this great site, Carole. I love it more every month.

    My favourite book last month was by an author I really love, Orhan Pamuk, the novel is called The White Castle. The author recieved the Nobel Price for literature in 2006 and really deserved it.

  21. So sorry -- I did not mean to hit the Enter button before adding the name of the book! I reviewed The Sharper Your Knife, the Less You Cry: Love, Laughter, and Tears in Paris at the World's Most Famous Cooking School by Kathleen Flinn.

  23. Hello again, Carole! ;) So far, I've been reading some really good books this month. I just haven't chosen my favorite book for the month of March yet. I'll be back later on to add my link to the list once I've picked a monthly favorite! ;)

    Thanks so much, Carole!

  24. Well, that didn't take long, did it! :) Ashenden: A Novel by Elizabeth Wilhide is about a 250-year-old English country house. I absolutely love books about houses! This is Elizabeth Wilhide's debut novel, although she has written many, many books on interior design.

    Elizabeth Wilhide was originally born in the United States, but has lived in London since 1967 with her husband and children.
