Books You Loved: August Edition!



Books You Loved: July Edition  once again provided reviews of some great books. Thank you to all. Here are some posts that caught my eye:

Melissa posted on Goodreads about Famous in a Small Town by Viola Shipman.  She said 'It's also about friendship between generations and there's some romance too! The setting is a beautiful and cozy town in Northern Michigan, … It's the perfect idyllic summer escape read! I even cried happy tears.'

Elizabeth of Silver's Reviews brought us The Paris Daughter by Kristin Harmel.  She said 'Everyone had to make difficult choices during the war, but a mother's choice to leave her children in the care of someone else was necessary and heartbreaking.'

My Jane Austen Book Club posted about What Would Jane Austen Do? By Linda Corbett.  Maria said 'I'm having great fun leafing through a witty modern romance with so many winks at Jane Austen and her world..While the story is not exactly a retelling of any Austen novel, each chapter starts with a Jane Austen quote, and the main character Maddy is an Austen superfan, which leads to references to her books, characters and quotations.'

Tina posted the Goodreads review of Meredith, Alone by Claire Alexander.  It said 'You’ll be laughing and crying as “the brilliant author of this brilliant book” introduces Meredith, who, after spending three years inside her house, figures out how to rejoin the world one step at a time.'

Now on to the Books You Loved: August 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.
