Books You Loved: December/January Edition




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

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

All The Stars in The Heavens by Adriana Trigliani was reviewed by Bermuda Onion's Weblog. Her review said 'Trigliani continues to wow me – her lush writing brought the period to life in this majestic book.  I was hooked from the beginning and couldn’t put it down.'

Sweet Forgiveness by Lori Nelson Spielman was reviewed by Melissa of Chick Lit Central. Melissa said 'I really enjoyed Lori Nelson Spielman's sophomore novel, Sweet Forgiveness. She takes on an original concept and goes in directions I would not have expected at all. There were so many twists that I never saw what was around each corner. It is very easy to get swept up by the strong and compelling narrative and it kept me on my toes.'

Melissa also brought over Hello? by Liza Wiemer.  Melissa said 'I kept forgetting it was just a book. It's also gripping, not letting go even after the last page is turned.'

Now on to the December/January collection.  There are no rules other than your post 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!  Please invite other booky people to join in the fun – the more the merrier!

  13. My wish is for everyone to read Snail Mail and start sending cards and notes in the mail again. Such a joy to send and open. Also adored The Messenger by Markus Zusak.

  14. Well, I just added my favorite book for the month of December, and must say that it was hard for me to choose just one for this month. I have read so many great books in December. Thank you for hosting, Carole, and see you in 2016! :)
