Before getting to our first Books You Loved of 2013, here are the showcases from the December edition. I could have chosen 12 to showcase but ended up randomly selecting 6 of the 12 so that this post wouldn't be too long! So please do pop by the Pinterest Board that has all the pinnable links.
I am going to look out this book, Einstein: His Life and Universe by Walter Isaacson linked in by docnad of Attempted Bloggery. Not only am I interested in Einstein, the author also wrote the bio of Steve Jobs which was a great read.
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green has been linked in to prior editions of Books You Loved. This review is by Kim of Quintessentially Bookish. Another book I am going to seek out and read soon.
Thanks to Anna of Diary of an Eccentric for this review of The Plum Tree by Ellen Marie Wiseman. The book, set in wartime Germany, sounds very interesting.
The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton sounded intriguing. Thanks for linking in, Logan from Southern Sunflowers & Coffee Beans.
This book is quirky but fun. Thanks Moira from Clothes in Books for linking in your post about Brat Farrar by Josephine Tay. Have to love an imposter story.
And last, but by no means least, that old fave The Hobbit by Tolkien. This book has been made into a film (the first of 3) by Peter Jackson. The movie was shot right here in New Zealand. Thanks for linking in, Michelle, from Scrappy Bookworm.
I am loving reading about books you really enjoyed each month. Is there any way I could make this collection work even better? Suggestions would be most welcome.
So onto this month's collection. Just put your name and the name of the book (plus author, if you like) into the first box of Mr Linky. Paste the url of your post about the book into the second box, and Bob's your Uncle!
It would be super if you also stopped by some of the other links to check them out – you may find great books to read and other blogs to follow or who might follow you. I always follow any blog that links up on GFC (if they have that gadget) or by Google Reader.
