Review of the Month This month, I had to pick a review that simply made me laugh: Jenny’s hilarious tear-down of The Little Paris Bookshop at Shelf Love. There’s no accounting for taste, as this has been an international bestseller with some rave reviews — but I think I’m going to trust Jenny’s opinion and […]

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 […]

Review of the Month I’ve had Daniel Kehlmann’s Measuring the World on my radar for some time now, but three reviews in one week (from Lizzy’s Literary Life, My Book Strings and Consumed by Ink) have convinced me that I really should read it soon. It sounds like a brilliant fictional treatment of a fascinating […]

Review of the Month Brian of Babbling Books highlighted a fascinating-sounding story by E.M. Forster that veers into science fiction territory, giving some astonishing insights into the future (i.e. now). Be sure to read the comments, too. This month, I’m moving Reading New England reviews into this monthly link summary for easier reference. Thank you […]

Review of the Month Jenny’s review of Claire Harman’s new biography Charlotte Bronte: A Fiery Heart hilariously gives us the five “Bronte-est” things that happened within its pages. For a more serious assessment of the same book, see this review from Gudrun’s Tights. And if you can’t get enough of this crazy family, there’s… More […]

Review of the Month At Literary Ramblings, a truly epic review of War and Peace (both the book and the miniseries) has gotten me even more excited to take the plunge into that sea of words myself. And I have to give honorable mention to Majoring in Literature, for summing up Eugene Onegin in “one […]

Review of the Month: The Song Collector This month I was intrigued by a review at The Captive Reader that expresses appreciation for seeing an author come through with the best she is capable of, even after some not-so-successful attempts. I hadn’t heard of Natasha Solomons but I’ll definitely be seeking her out now. Here […]

Review of the month: The Swerve This month, I’m highlighting a book about religious and intellectual history that looks awfully relevant in light of today’s cultural strife. Thanks to Tales from the Reading Room for bringing it to my attention. Elsewhere this month: Behind the Books From the Guardian, the story of the real Winnie-the-Pooh […]

  Review of the Month: The Middle Window My favorite review this month had to be the one in which Simon of Stuck in a Book fought his “natural aversion to historical fiction” to find at least partial pleasure in a novel most readers — even fans of the author — detest. I love it […]
