Books You loved: March had lots of interesting books. Some reviews that caught my eye were:
The Forgetting Time by Sharon Guskin was reviewed by both Carpe Librum and Grab a Book From our Stack. Carpe Librum said 'I can't believe this is her debut novel; wow, what a way to burst onto the scene! Her writing is polished, and I admire her for extending the ending beyond what I was expecting. I got so much more out of The Forgetting Time than I thought possible. …Awesome, amazing, I loved loved loved it!' Grab a Book said 'I thought this book was very well done. It kept my interest throughout and had some twists I did not see coming. Congrats to the author on a great first novel!'
Books I Think You Should Read brought us No Ordinary Life by Suzanne Redfearn. The review said 'I'd recommend this novel to anyone who likes a good story, or who is curious about how stars become "born," so to speak'
The Swans of Fifth Avenue was reviewed by Booking Mama. She said 'I adored THE SWANS OF FIFTH AVENUE and consider Ms. Benjamin to be a must-read author! Highly recommended!'
For something different, a graphic memoir, or comic was brought over by Captivated Reader. It is My Japanese Husband Thinks I'm Crazy! By Grace Buchele Mineta. The review said 'My Japanese Husband Thinks I'm Crazy … is a combination comic book mixed with short essays about life in Japan as a white American woman married to Japanese man.' Intriguing
Finally, a book that would be good for all aspiring writers, Plot Fiction Like the Masters by Terry BAzes. Guiltless Reading said ' to "read like a writer" puts things in a totally new perspective! This slim book is packed with insights from a purely writer's viewpoint and it rather messed up my head as well as gave me a newfound appreciation for what a demanding task it is to produce a readable and enjoyable story.'
