August 23: Top Ten Books You Loved But Never Wrote A Review For

Most of these I read before I started my blog... but for some reason I never did a review on Goodreads either.  Brain lapse??

I loved this book as well as the first one (The Bronze Horseman).  I don't know why I never wrote a review for it though other than I read it before I started my blog.  I guess I'm waiting to visit again with Tatiana & Alexander in the 3rd and final book The Summer Garden.  Tatiana & Alexander are two people who I love to join in Russia & New York.

LOVED this story... I have the next two in the series waiting to be read.  I have it

marked as "review to come" on my shelves on Goodreads...but alas, no review yet.

What can I say about this one??  Another that I read before I began my blog.  I absolutely loved this book.  This author always blows me away with his stories and his writing.

An amazing story of a little Jewish girl during WWII.  This story was a gut wrenching story that left me in tears at times.

A twisting tale of a man badly injured in a car accident who meets a nurse.  The nurse insists that they knew each other in another life... medieval Germany.

An amazing story of a woman who fought for her life during the hardest of times against Islamic fundamentalists.

A story of a cellist who insists on continuing to play in the middle of Sarajevo as mortar bombings happen around him.

A story written in the voice of women in Afghanistan.  It showed the strong will and character of women in a country where women have no rights.

I LOVE anything by Michael Palmer.  I love that he adds his true medical knowledge to some really gripping mysteries and thrillers.

I read this book in 2 days even though it was pretty lengthy.  I loved the story of Clare and how she lived with never knowing when Henry would appear and disappear.

I still need to finish Sarah's Key. It was so good but then I left it behind in my hotel room :(

I was so disappointed in myself I haven't repurchased it.

This was a great list; I especially agree with The Tea Rose since, as you know, I love that series. I really want to read Tatiana & Alexander and Sarah's Key, even more so now.
