Books You Loved: December/January edition




Books You loved: November had lots of interesting books – as always.  Some reviews that caught my eye were:

Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult was reviewed by Me!!!  The review said 'I only have good things to say about this novel. Jodi writes it in such a way that you feel like you're in her character's shoes. Even the ones you're not supposed to like.'  I also found it a riveting, if uncomfortable, read.  Will be posting about it soon.

Everything We Keep by Kerry Lonsdale was brought over by Michelle of Jarrah Jungle (this month's Blog of the Month).  Michelle said 'This is a really unique story with lots of twists and turns, family dramas and hidden secrets. It is a real page turner'

The Girl in the Castle by Santa Montefiore was reviewd by Elizabeth of Silver's Reviews.  The review said 'Poor Kitty Deverill had a lot to deal with at her young age, but she was spunky, delightful, and resilient.   

Kitty was a character I really enjoyed, and THE GIRL IN THE CASTLE was a book I really enjoyed..

THE GIRL IN THE CASTLE is set around 1910 and lets us into the lives of aristocrats and the lives of servants in a castle.'

Now for the December/January collection.  Remember the post doesn't have to be a recent one and the book doesn't have to have been recently published or read.  The only requirement is that it is about a book that you loved.

To add to the list just pop the name of the book (and your name/blog name if you like) into the first Mr Linky box and then copy and paste the url of your post about it into the second box.

I'll be pinning your links to this Pinboard to make it easier for you to check them out at a glance. This link up covers both December and January.

Happy Holidays!
