Books You Loved: September Edition!


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


Tina of Turn The Page brought over Stolen by Tess Stimson.  Her post said 'This story has an explosive beginning and a surprise ending.  If you plan to read this book be prepared to ignore everything else as you'll have trouble putting it down.

Alexa Martini faces the worst nightmare of any parent.  Her 3 year old daughter Charlotte is abducted during a wedding celebration in St Petersburg Florida.'

The One Hundred Years of Lenni and Margot by Marianne Cronin was reviewed by Book Reviews by Linda Moore.  Her post said 'This is Marianne Cronin's debut novel and it's a good one. ..It was well written and very emotional. There were a few chuckles thrown in for good measure but overall it's very sad. …And you won't want to put this book down. You'll grab a box of two of kleenex and hang on for the ride.'


Bookalicious Babe Book Reviews brought over My Lemon Grove Summer by Jo Thomas.  Her post said 'This was a fun, quick read that took me away to Italy. Lemons abound in this novel, and I couldn't help but smell them the whole time I was reading this novel. There are even recipes in the back of the book for lemon-flavored treats.'


Lastly, Elizabeth of Silver's Reviews posted about The Forest of Vanishing Stars by Kristin Harmel.  She said 'This book is a beautiful tribute to the human spirit, to perseverance, and to finding the qualities a person possesses for empathy, kindness, and making choices.

Another FIVE star but very heartbreaking gem from Kristin Harmel.  5/5'


Now on to September. There are no rules for this party.  The only requirement is that 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. Mr Linky also makes you tick a box.


I'll be pinning your links to this Pinboard to make it easier for you to check them out at a glance.  Our libraries are currently closed – darn that Delta – but luckily I still have a stack of books on hand.


Take care and stay safe.




  1. tx for the email, keep safe,

  3. Can't believe it is September...time is going WAY TOO FAST!!

    Happy Reading this month.

  4. Thank you for the shout out. Much appreciated..

  5. A Hand to Hold in Deep Water by Shawn Nocher--beautiful debut by an author to watch.

  6. This month I have linked in the Christian non-fiction The Four Loves by C.S. Lewis and my re-read of the romantic time-slip novel The Rose Garden by Susanna Kearsley. Happy September reading! 🙂

  7. So sorry your libraries are closed. We went through all that for almost a year and I hope it will be over for good, though I doubt it. Wish you good luck.
    This month's book was one of the most interesting reads of the year, a book that explains so much about American politics and politics in general. We all should hope that our governments want the best for us and that we get out of this mess.

  8. Thanks for the shout out on Stolen! I just linked up.

  9. Hi Carole, I finally have another book worthy of your Books You Loved list! I'm a bit late to the party on this one, but I read and adored The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by VE Schwab. Such a great read!
