Books You Loved: September Edition

Books You Loved: August continued to provide reviews of great books. Thank you to all. Here are a few that caught my eye:

Words and Peace posted about Smoking Kills - I loved this one too and posted about it here.  The post summed the book up by saying 'Quirky story, as the French know how to do, with a good dose of dark comedy, by a skilled and entertaining writer.'

Turtles All The Way Down by John Green was brought over by Captivated Reader.  She said ' I'm once again amazed by John Green's writing. I am glad that I read Turtles All The Way Down. I enjoyed the storyline and the characters for this tightly written novel, which features a leading female character named, Aza, who has OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder). '

Elizabeth of Silver's Reviews posted about The Subway Girls – she said 'THE SUBWAY GIRLS has everything historical fiction and women's fiction fans will love.  …

The book goes back and forth from the 1940’s to 2018.  The story line connects smoothly with each era and has genuine, lovable, and relatable characters.

It is truly a book to savor and enjoy.  5/5'

Tracey of Carpe Librum brought us The Peacock Summer by Hannah Richell – she said 'The Peacock Summer is definitely for fans of Kate Morton and those who enjoy historical fiction. Highly recommended. I'm just sad it's over.'

Now on to the September(!) 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.  As a bonus the books reviewed last September are also on that board.
