Books You Loved: October Edition!



Books You Loved: September  Edition again provided reviews of some great books. Thank you to all. Here are a few links that caught my eye:


The Daughter of Time by Josephine Tey was reviewed by Words and Peace.  She said 'Unique and fascinating perspective: analyze historical enigmas with the eyes of a modern police inspector.' Intriguing!


The Lost Ticket by Freya Sampson was reviewed by Elizabeth of Silver's Reviews – she said 'THE LOST TICKET is a very heartwarming and at times heart wrenching book that will have you in tears, but not sad tears.'


Elizabeth also brought over The Magic of Lemon Drop Pie by Rachel Linden.  Her post said 'THE MAGIC OF LEMON DROP PIE is a sweet, heartwarming, uplifting read with a character you will fall in love with. ..A truly enjoyable read that gives some great advice but also a few heartaches.  5/5'


Finally, Tracey of Carpe Librum posted about The Marriage Portrait  by Maggie O'Farrell (of Hamnet fame).  Her post is difficult to summarise but her summary was 'Sublime, just sublime! The Marriage Portrait by Maggie O'Farrell is one of my most highly anticipated releases for 2022'


Now on to the Books You Loved: October Edition. 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.


I'll be pinning your links to this Pinboard  to make it easier for you to check them out at a glance. 


Hope you have a lovely October and find lots of good books – and read them!



  1. Nice featured books and the ones posted in the list so far.

  3. hi thanks for email about new month, welcome to autumn

  4. Thanks so much for the shout out for my review of The Marriage Portrait by Maggie O'Farrell, I hope other readers feel the same :-)

  5. Sorry, I had to enter my link twice because the first one didn't work for some reason. Couldn't delete it, so if you can, please, feel free.

    Anyway, the story "My Last Runaways" is about an English Quaker girl who emigrates to the United States in the middle of the 19th century. Like all of Tracy Chevalier's books, very well written.
