Books You Loved - April - Now Closed




It's Books You Loved time again – the April edition.  Before getting to the link up I would like to mention a few of the books that were linked in to the March edition which caught my eye.
  
The Return by Victoria Hislop.  Marianne of Let's Read said in her review that:

"The Return leads us to another place and another time in history but one that is just as exciting. A young woman discovers not only the terrible history of the Spanish Civil War but also her own."
  
Someday, Someday, Maybe by Lauren Graham.  The author was Lorelai from the Gilmore Girls.  Megan of Write Meg! said  "If you’re looking for a smart, fun story, Someday, Someday, Maybe is really enjoyable." 

When in Rome by Nicky Pellegrino. LindyLouMac's Book Review said "A novel for those Italophiles that cannot resist another story set in Italy," And even better the author is a Kiwi!


The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes – review by Rose City Reader

"Julian Barnes explores memory, loss, and lives built around the empty spaces in his Booker-winning novel, The Sense of an Ending."
  
Audition: A Memoir by Barbara Waltersreviewed by Moonshine and RosefireOverall, it was an incredibly interesting and engaging book for me to read"


Now, on to this month's link up – please put your name and the book name (& author) into the first Mr Linky box and copy the url for your post about the book into the second.  And if you have time, it would be great if you checked out some of the other links.

Have fun!

  7. I am so pleased to announce that Nanny and the Professor is currently on the Kindle Top 100 List, the Nook Top 100 List, and is #14 on Apple iBooks Romance Bestsellers List. Now, I don't expect it to stay there for long, but I am jazzed up today!

  13. I'm linking to a historical mystery which I just finished today - A Test of Wills by Charles Todd, a first novel by a mother and son writing team. It is somewhat flawed but contains interesting characters and interesting psychological studies. I quite liked it.

  29. Hello there, Carole,
    I posted my review above - A Little Death by Laura Wilson was her debut mystery filled with extremely quirky characters. I'm currently reading My Best Friend by Laura Wilson, which is her third mystery. So far, it's very good! :)
