This week’s topic is Books I Loved But Never Reviewed. I’ve picked ten books that I read before I started publishing detailed reviews on my blog in November 2016. They are all books I rated five stars. Links from the titles will take you to the brief, in many cases very brief, reviews on Goodreads that I wrote at the time.

All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

The Blue Room by Georges Simenon

A Place Called Winter by Patrick Gale

My Antonia by Willa Cather
