Books You Loved: February Edition




Here's February's edition of Books You Loved.  Before getting to the linky part, here are my showcases from the January edition.


Joie de Lire did a review of The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky.  While I don't read many coming of age stories this one sounds quite different.  It will be going onto my TBR list.

Thanks to Louise at The Reading Experiment for her review of The Dinner by Herman Koch.  I was particularly taken with her comment that " Koch writes with the theatre of a waiter making his way around a table, removing the silver cloche from each meal with great flourish."

Whitney of She is Too Fond of Books reviewed Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn.  I don't do many thrillers but this sounds like a good one.

Thanks to Dizzy C's Little Book Blog for her review of Before I Met You by Lisa Jewell.  Love the period – 1920's and a setting in Guernsey.

Michelle from Jarrah Jungle posted about Joanne Harris' Chocolat, an old fave of mine.  Thanks, Michelle

 
Now onto this month's collection of your posts about books you loved.  Just put your entries into the Mr Linky boxes.  Put your name, and the name of the book into the first one and copy the url for your post into the second.

There are no rules – you can link a few posts if you like. But it would be really good if you visited some other links and even better if you let them know where you came across their posts!  You might find some great blogs to follow who will follow you back.

I do make sure to follow everyone who links in.

Happy linking!

  9. I've linked my reviews for two books that I loved in the past month: The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz and Standing in Another Man's Grave by Ian Rankin. The first is literary fiction, the second is in the mystery genre. I enjoyed both of them tremendously. Cheers!

  11. I've been reading some really good books this month, but the one that really stood out for me is The Woman in Black: A Ghost Story by Susan Hill. I passed it on to my daughter to read next! We're both looking forward to seeing the movie with Daniel Radcliffe (minus the glasses!) :)

    Thanks so much, Carole! See you next month! :)

  12. I just posted my link but the title did not come up. :-( Anyway, I was going to post The Lost and Forgotten Languages of Shanghai by Ruiyan Xu, instead, my link appeared. Don't know what I did wrong this time, it worked all the other months. Anyway, I hope someone enjoys the title.

  13. I linked up my favorite read for January--"The Power of a Positive Woman" which has to be one of the best non-fiction books I've ever read!

  17. Thanks very much for the linky, so many books there! I've added Moranthology by Caitlin Moran. Not quite as good as How to be a Woman in my opinion!

  18. I have a huge pile to read. Does that mean I still need more? :-)

  19. I added a few Carole. Those are the ones I've rated the highest in my reviews. I still have more favorites but have to re-read them since I read them pre-blog and now I feel compelled to review them. I like this monthly list; it's a new favorite of mine.
    Regards.
