So April brought a lovely haul of Books You Loved. Some that caught my eye particularly were:
Life after life by Kate Atkinson. Ionia of Readful Things Blog said " From an accomplishment standpoint, I would put this book up there with some of the classics. The complex, elegantly written story is something that I am not sure many authors could take on and succeed at."
And Niall from The Speculative Scotsman said " Kate Atkinson's latest is her very greatest by a way, reminiscent of nothing so much as her Whitbread Award-winning debut, Behind the Scenes at the Museum"
Flat-out love by Jessica Park. Christine from Rainy Day Reads said " I loved this book. I loved every tiny little detail and there is absolutely nothing that I would even dream of wanting to change. The setting, the humor, the characters..."
A Loyal Companion by Barbara Metzger. Voracious Reader said " Well-written with a smooth flowing plot and delectable characters this humorous historical romance will entertain even the most dour reader."
The Last Telegram by Liz Trenow. Anna of Diary of An Eccentric said " When I finished this book yesterday, I wiped tears from my eyes, sighed, and thought about reading it again. It’s my favorite kind of historical fiction, with the history front and center, characters I care about and don’t want to leave behind, and writing that flows so beautifully that when you sit down to read a few pages, you’ve read a quarter of the book without realizing."
Things are Going to Slide by Rangely Wallace. Donna of Room for Reading said " I plundered through the book as it is a real page turner and it was a satisfying read and left all the ends nicely tied up"
And for some non-fiction:
Lean in by Sheryl Sandberg. Shannon from The Simply Luxurious Life said " Not once does she profess to being perfect or to have figured it all out, but she does demonstrate what she implores women to do – lean in and speak up."
Love With A Chance Of Drowning by Torre DeRoche. The Modern Woman's Survival Guide said " A sometimes hilarious, often moving and always brave memoir that proves there are some risks worth taking"
