Books You Loved: March Edition




Books You Loved: February had lots of great books.  Some reviews that caught my eye were:

Elizabeth from Books I Think You Should Read brought us Hello from the Gillespies by Monica McInerney.  Elizabeth said 'this would make a great movie too'.  This one's on my tbr.

Thanks, Michelle from Jarrah Jungle for telling us about The Maxwell Sisters by Loretta Hill.  She said 'I recommend this book to wine lovers who like a bit of light hearted romance.'

Jessica from The Bookworm Chronicles brought Dan Brown's The Inferno.  I was pleased to hear about a book starring Robert Langdon that I haven't read.  She said 'Inferno is another gripping thriller that follows Professor Robert Langdon through the history, art and symbols of Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy to a dramatic climax.'


For something a little bit different we have Annette from Impressions in Ink to thank. She recommended The Oblate's Confession by William Peak. It is monastic mediaeval fiction. She said 'It is exciting for me to read a debut novel that sweeps me away'

Thank you to She Reads Novels for reminding me about The Quiet Gentleman by Georgette Heyer.

Now for the new collection.  Remember the post doesn't have to be a recent one and the book doesn't have to have been recently published or read.  The only requirement is that it is about a book that you loved.

To add to the list just pop the name of the book (and your name/blog name if you like) into the first Mr Linky box and then copy and paste the url of your post about it into the second box.

I'll be pinning your links to this Pinboard to make it easier for you to check them out at a glance.

Have fun.  I hope you discover some great books to read – I always do!

  9. Have to include Mister Owita's Guide to Gardening as I learned the author recently passed away. Fortunately, she left this poignant memoir as part of her legacy.

  22. It's actually after 10 pm on March 31st where I am, so I'm sliding in just under the wire for the end of the month. Thanks so much, Carols :) Anyway, I've only managed to read four books in the month of March - I've spent most of the month doing every possible type of puzzle: jigsaws, crosswords and sudoku.

    Jane's House by Robert Kimmel Smith was the first book in a Reader's Digest Condensed Books that I read. Although, Robert Kimmel Smith is predominantly a children's author, he did write maybe five adult books, as well! :) See you next month, everyone! :)
