Books You Loved: February had lots of interesting books – as always. Some reviews that caught my eye were:
Elizabeth from Silver's Reviews added Traveling Light to the collection. She said 'TRAVELING LIGHT is a book to read when you need to be uplifted, when you need to hear good comments about mankind, and when you just need a change of pace that comes with beautiful, descriptive writing and marvelous characters.'
Michelle from Jarrah Jungle brought over Cooking For Picasso. Michelle said 'Being that the story is set in France this is a perfect holiday read'
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children was contributed by Marci of Stone Cottage Adventures. The review said 'I was absolutely mesmerized by this book. It is written in first person from the perspective of Jacob Portman, a sixteen year old boy who struggles with fitting into society where he is from.'
Silver's Reviews also brought us Two Days Gone. Elizabeth's review said 'The book kept spinning and spiraling into better and better as it became more frightening and more tense leaving the reader with an awesome finish.'
Lastly, I found Storm in a Teacup interesting. It was reviewed by Doing Dewey. She said 'I’ve long felt that my understanding of the physics everyday objects around me is poor and this was the perfect book to remedy that. Author Helen Czerski did an amazing job conveying why physics is so exciting to her. Her writing style was as entertaining and conversational as the blurbs promised. She illustrated every concept with her personal experiences, fascinating historical anecdotes, and interesting natural phenomena'

Now for the March 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 have selected a new Blog of the Month for you – something just a bit different from my usual selections. I have closely followed Linda of Linda's Life Journal for several years now – starting from just before her quad grandkids were born – her blog is always a delight. I hope you enjoy it too. It is not a food or books blog – it is a personal journal – always entertaining and heart-warming.
