Links I Loved This Week – 10/07/16

  • Kate at Parchment Girl‘s review of The Couple Next Door made me want to order it as part of a future Book Of The Month package or maybe even buy it before then. It sounds really thrilling.
  • I have two of Elena Ferrante’s books on my TBR list for the Fall and I found this article about the recent gossip on the author’s true identity (she has chosen to use a pen name thus far) very interesting.
  • It was reading Modern Mrs. Darcy‘s blog that inspired me to start a book blog of my own. This week she published a very interesting post about The Perks Of Reading Together which is a springboard to her announcement that she’s starting an online book club for her blog on October 12th. I’ll definitely be participating!

  • On Wednesday I posted a review of The City Of Palaces by Michael Nava, linking it up to Naz’s Read Diverse Books blog for Latinx Heritage Month. I really loved the novel – it was beautifully written and touched on so many different significant themes like the importance of democracy and the scourge of racial discrimination.
  • I’ll be posting two new book reviews in the coming week, one for Gayle Foreman’s Leave Me on Sunday and one for Dinah Jefferies The Tea Planter’s Wife on Wednesday. I’m halfway through the latter and I’m really loving it.
  • The other post I have planned for this coming week (on Tuesday) is something a little different – an Author Spotlight to share my favorite Terry Pratchett books. His novels are a little outside the norm of what I typically read but I’ve grown up reading them and I love the entire Discworld series.

      Of course! I’m planning a small informal readathon myself for Halloween but a lot of the titles were already features on my Fall 2016 TBR list so I decided not to create a post for it. I’ll do one with the reviews 🙂

    I’ll be interested in your thoughts on Tea Planter’s Wife–I read and reviewed it recently.

    I look forward to your review of Wonder! I’d like to read more of Emma Donoghue’s novels. My BOTM choice was The Mothers and I hope it gets here soon. 😦
    Thanks for linking to my blog. ❤
