Books you loved: November edition




Here's the November edition of the monthly link up, Books You Loved.  Just link in your posts about any books you loved – you don't have to have read them recently.  They don't have to be newly issued ones.  It is great to hear about old faves.

Last month we had some fantastic links. The ones I have chosen to showcase this month are:

Fiction:

Alys, Always by Harriet Lane – thanks House With No Name

The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes – thanks to The Nature of Things.

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak – thanks B's Book Blog!.

And Surfing in Stilettos by Carol E Wyer – thanks Dizzy C's Little Book Blog

  
Fiction set at the time of WWII:

The Kommandant's Girl by Pam Jenoff – thanks Bookaholic Mum

Mr Churchill's Secretary by Susan Elia MacNeal – thanks Diary of an Eccentric

  
Non Fiction:

quick-fix southern by rebecca lang – thanks to TheBook Pantry

Cookies for Grown-Ups by Kelly Cooper – thanks to The Pub and Grub Forum


An old fave:

A Slipping-Down Life by Anne Tyler – thanks to Ava @ Books
 

To link in for this new edition of Books You Loved, just go to the Mr Linky boxes below and put your name and the name of the book (and author if you like) into the first box and copy the url for your post into the second box. 

Happy reading in November!

  8. Thanks Carole for continuing to run this great meme! Mine is a bestseller from the 1920s, now mostly forgotten, but a rollicking good read.

  20. I would like to recommend "Bury Your Dead" by Louise Penny to your readers. It is part of a wonderful series featuring Canadian Chief Inspector Armand Gamache of the Surete de Quebec, a most humane and thoughtful policeman.

    Have a great day.

  34. tx for the invite. i don't normally post the books i've read til the end of the month. Those highlighted throughout is because of a blog tour or hop i'm involved in. since january i've read over 550 books. not sure you'd want me to list them all. also i get 90% of them as ARC's and some are 6 months ahead of being released. 'already home' i actually read in april.

  38. Thank you for passing by Carole and reminding me of this amazing November edition. :)
    My favorite book of this month has to be The Catcher in the Rye (which I reviewed in this post: http://storiesaftertwelve.blogspot.com/2012/11/the-catcher-in-rye-by-j-d-salinger.html?showComment=1353015356500) I was so happy to read it and it definitely goes to my favorite books shelf! :D

  39. Well, I did it wrong and didn't put the name of the book (One Dance with a Stranger by Mary Forbes)

    ReplyDelete
  40. Well, I didn't follow the rules this time. Three Bags Full is certainly not a book i loved by any stretch, and I'm not recommending it, but I'm sure there must be someone who disagrees with me and I'd certainly welcome hearing from them. I felt the whole way through that I was missing something....

  41. Hello Carole,
    I just posted November's Book of the Month for me. Emma Hamilton by Norah Lofts is a book that I got back in April of this year, but only read in November. I never knew that much about Lady Emma Hamilton's private life before I read this book, only that she was Admiral Horatio Nelson's mistress for seven years. I love Norah Lofts as an author anyway! :)
