Review of the Month

Thanks to Books and Chocolate for an insightful review of a vintage novel, The Shuttle by Frances Hodgson Burnett. I’ve been meaning to read this for a long time, and now I’m even more excited about it — sounds like a perfect summer read.

And I’d also like to thank those who continue to participate in the Reading New England Challenge. If I’ve missed any of your reviews, don’t hesitate to let me know — and be sure to use the State Post and Genre Post linkups, now back after technical difficulties briefly took them down. Here’s what I came across this month, along with other posts and articles that caught my eye.

Lovely Lists

  • There are so many interesting lists for the 20 Books of Summer challenge floating around, but this one from Consumed by Ink has some exceptionally unusual and fascinating sounding titles on it.
  • It’s great to know that Scott of Furrowed Middlebrow is working on publishing some forgotten classics, but in the meantime he has some splendid suggestions for some other old favorites that are now back in print.
  • For a different take on the TBR list, Annabel’s House of Books is showcasing hers in color-coordinated chunks. Here’s the luscious-looking Indigo selection.

  1. I love the idea of literary locations. I haven’t seen many yet (we don’t travel too far with the kids), although I’ve seen a popular one many times over – Green Gables. 🙂
    I’m glad you found something of interest on my list, Lory!

  2. I’ve never heard of The Shuttle but I’m going on a hunt! The Little Princess and The Secret Garden are two much loved books from my childhood.

    And your image of the month is gorgeous, I want to keep looking at it and all the intricate details.
