Books You Loved – June Edition resulted in another interesting 'library' of books. Before getting to the new collection, here are a few of the reviews that caught my eye. To check out the other books in the June Edition you could head over to this Pinboard.
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes was linked in by Heather at Books and Quilts and by Michelle at Jarrah Jungle. I read this based on their recommendation and found it a great read. Heather said 'Thanks to author Jojo Moyes for penning such a wonderful story that kept me captivated from beginning to end.' Michelle said 'I really enjoyed this book, it was realistic and easy to read which had me turning the pages to find out how the story was going to end, right up until the last chapter I still wasn't sure how it would finish and what would happen to Will and Lou.'
Guiltless Reading brought us Mrs Queen Takes the Train by William Kuhn. On her recommendation I am now reading it. She said 'If you'd like a fluffy and fun read that pokes fun at, yet has a soft spot, for the Queen, read this! I recommend it to those who enjoy chick lit, and lovers of anything British.' Everyone needs some 'fluff' now and then!
Dorothy at The Nature of Things brought The Lincoln Lawyer by Michael Connelly to the library. I've now got it from my library but haven't read it yet. Dorothy said 'It's easy to understand why it won several awards. It was expertly plotted and paced, designed to keep the reader turning those pages. The action never lagged, but my favorite parts were the courtroom scenes'
Carmen's Books and Movies Reviews brought along Mr Penumbra's 24 Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan. She said 'I loved Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore. I had so much fun that lost my sleep during the three nights I was reading the novel and I can effectively say that I haven’t had as much fun with a book since…ever?!'
This edition of Books You Loved is a double header. It covers both July and August. So don't forget to visit in August to add a book you loved too!
It's easy to add to the July/August collection. Just pop the name of the book (plus your blog name/name if you like) into the first Mr Linky box and then paste the url for your post about it into the second one. I'll be pinning the links to this Pinboard. This will make it easy for you to check out the links at a glance and choose which reviews you want to read.
Wishing everyone two months of happy reading!
