Books You Loved: October Edition



It's the first Wednesday in the month again.  So, it's Books You Loved time.

Books You Loved: September was another great collection.  Some reviews that caught my eye were:

Tracey of Carpe Librum linked in The Taming of the Queen by Phillipa Gregory.  She said 'The Taming of the Queen is expertly written and easily one of my favourite books of the year.' I agree – a fabulously interesting book about the marriage of Katherine Parr and Henry VIII.

Bermuda Onion's Weblog brought over Kitchens of the Great Midwest. This is a novel.  She said 'tells the story of Eva Thorvald, a young woman who overcomes a tragic childhood to become a creative, inventive, and well-known chef. .. I adored this book – it’s sure to make my list of favorites for the year.'

Guiltless Reading reviewed Baker's Blues by Judith Ryan Hendricks.  She said 'Alternately depressing and inspiring, and interspersed with plenty descriptions of the power of food to heal, I'd recommend this novel to foodie fiction lovers, women's fiction readers, and those who want a better understanding of the dynamics of depression.'

And now for something different!  Everyday Fashions of the Thirties reviewed by Marci of Stone Cottage Adventures.  This is a wonderful picture book, as Marci says, showing clothing through the pages of Sears' catalogues.

Now for the October 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.

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

  18. Hi there! Just added the link to "Lucky Dawg Meets Lucky Lucy". I didn't know I should have put the title in where it asked for name. I put MY name in there. Any way to fix that? It's Romance, and that IS one of my biggest loves in life... :-)

  21. Hello Carole,
    I just wanted to link up my favorite book for October. It was a reread, but I also linked in my original review from 2011. Somehow I screwed up my post and misquoted the title of the book. Lol! Anyway, the last two entries are the right ones #61 and #62.
