Saturday Review of Books: December 17, 2016

“Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested: that is, some books are to be read only in parts, others to be read, but not curiously, and some few to be read wholly, and with diligence and attention.” ~Sir Francis Bacon


Welcome to the Saturday Review of Books at Semicolon. Here’s how it usually works. Find a book review on your blog posted sometime during the previous week. The review doesn’t have to be a formal sort of thing. You can link to your thoughts on a particular book, a few ideas inspired by reading the book, your evaluation, quotations, whatever.

Then on Friday night/Saturday, you post a link here at Semicolon in Mr. Linky to the specific post where you’ve written your book review. Don’t link to your main blog page because this kind of link makes it hard to find the book review, especially when people drop in later after you’ve added new content to your blog. In parentheses after your name, add the title of the book you’re reviewing. This addition will help people to find the reviews they’re most interested in reading.

After linking to your own reviews, you can spend as long as you want reading the reviews of other bloggers for the week and adding to your wishlist of books to read.

  1. Good to see you back, Sherrry. Hope all is well with you and your family.

  2. Thanks for hosting, Sherry!

  3. I have been absent because I didn’t have any reviews posted for a while. I have another one this month and quite a few in the early winter and spring that I can add.

    I stopped by but didn’t add a link. So nice to be able to share a link.

    More good books…Yippee!!

    LOVE your winter side bars and your header.

    ENJOY your weekend.

  4. I really like the quote this week, and hope you have a lovely weekend. I don’t have a review for this week, but hope to have something for next week.

  5. Hey! I just linked my review of a fantastic paranoraml YA book – Tompkin’s School: For The Extraordinarily Talented by Tabi Slick
