Welcome to the new edition of Books You Loved. Can you believe it is March already?
Before getting to the link up, here are my choices of links from the last edition to showcase for you.
Thanks to Tammy's Book Parlor for her review of the French Twist series by Sandra Byrd – love books that are funny as well as interesting. Tammy says "This is great chick lit and all about cake with some great coffee! I loved this book!"
Rebecca from The Keys to the Gate brought us her review of The Twelve Tribes of Hattie by Ayana Mathis. Rebecca says "Each chapter stands alone yet ties into the next, creating a portrait of a family struggling to survive in a changing America. The writing is exquisite. The character development is powerful with each strong enough to lead separate novels." Sounds a goodie!
Historical fiction for you reviewed by Unabridged Chick with Parlor Games by Maryka Biaggio. Audra says "I just loved this book. Loved, loved, loved. It was flippant and fun, total escapism, with a minxy heroine I adored from the first page, a long list of exotic locales to divert, and piles of dramatic intrigue to keep me engaged"
Melissa from Chick Lit Central brought us her review of Talli Roland's The Pollyanna Plan. I agree with her when she says "Aside from the romantic plot, there is also a story line involving Emma's family, which I found captivating. I even became emotional over it at one point, as her mother and sister seemed so real."
Great kid's book – thanks to Jo Ann from Journey of a Bookseller for her review of Mine! She says "This is one of the most delightful children's picture books I've read in a long while. The story and the illustrations make this book special!"
Lastly an old fave: Gillion of Rose City Reader did a review of Wally Lamb's She's Come Undone. She says "The glory of Lamb’s story is that he makes it absolutely believable, no matter how awful or statistically improbable."
