Books You Loved: May Edition





Books You Loved: April had some very interesting books – as always.  Some reviews that caught my eye were:


The Pretty Delicious Café was reviewed by Michelle of Jarrah Jungle.  She said 'I recommend this book to take on your next holiday as an easy to read contemporary women's fiction.' 

The Candidate by Lis Wiehl was brought over by Create with Joy.  The review said 'Lis creates an interesting and suspenseful story while developing characters that cause strong emotional connections and responses.'  I have now read this myself and found it unexpectedly enjoyable (given it's outside my normal genres)

Beartown by Fredrik Backman was reviewed by Peggy's Porch.  Peggy said 'A story about moral failure, the dangers of crowd mentality, and coming of age, but mostly about the fragility of human nature. Set in Sweden, the incredible imagery puts you there in this small Swedish town in love with hockey. I loved it!'

Melissa of Chick Lit Central reviewed The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend  by Katerina Bivald.  Her review said ' The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend was truly a delightful story and perfect for that book lover in your life (or yourself, if this refers to you).'

Now on to the May collection.  Remember the posts you link in don't have to be recent and the book concerned 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.

  9. I can't believe I am yet to give a book a 5 star rating this year. Wow, I hope it picks up soon. I did link a great 4 star read though.

  16. Ugh! I'm so way behind with my favorite books of the month! I chose this one back in May, but only just got a chance to leave my links. (This was a reread for me from almost seven years ago) See you next month, Carole! :)
