TCL’s Throwback Thursday #7 – September 3, 2020.

Throwback Thursday Record

What is Throwback Thursday?

I’ve noticed several of these meme on a few book blogs. For example, Susan Loves Books does one, which is (or was originally) hosted by Renee@It’s Book Talk. I also noticed that another fellow blogger, Lorrea @ What ‘Cha Readin’?, was doing this as a monthly meme for her blog. Then there’s Reading Maria who is doing something called “Last Year I Was Reading” where she compares what she’s reading now to what she read a year ago. In most instances, they use this to share one of their favorite reads or older reviews. Lorrea is doing it for books she enjoyed over the last decade. I really like this idea and am essentially stealing it from ALL of them, but with my own twists.

My Twists/Instructions:

  • The Chocolate Lady’s #ThrowbackThursday takes place on the Thursday before the first Saturday of every month (i.e., the Thursday before my monthly #6Degrees post).
  • My posts will highlight one of my previously published book reviews, and I encourage other participants to do the same.
  • If you want to participate but have a new blog that doesn’t have old reviews to highlight, you are encouraged to write a post about anything old that strikes your fancy!
  • If you want to tweet or share this post, or someone else’s post, or the reviews being highlighted, please use #ThrowbackThursday!
  • Please add the link to your post to the link party, below.
  • Please link back to this page on your post.

So… with no further ado, I give you…

The Chocolate Lady’s Throwback Thursday Book Review #7

When Souls Collide

My Book Review for “The History of Love” by Nicole Krauss.

My review starts thusly:

cfa2e-history2bof2bloveAlma Singer is almost 15 years old. She was named after every girl in a book called “The History of Love.” Alma believes that she can find the real Alma from the book. She doesn’t know is who Leo Gursky is, that he was the real author of this book, that he’s in New York or that he’s never stopped loving Alma Mereminski, the woman he wrote about 60 years before. Leo Gursky is a survivor – he survived the Holocaust, Alma leaving for America and even finding out that the woman he loves is married to another. What Leo doesn’t know is that his book, “The History of Love” also survived the trip from Poland to South America without him. Nor does he know it was translated from Yiddish into Spanish, and although very few people read it, is now being translated into English by Alma Singer’s mother.”

If you like this idea, and want to do your own Throwback Thursday post, please put the link in the comments below.

If you want to do this yourself, you can let me know about your blog post in this link party below. (You can also just post a link to an old review you want us to look at, without making a separate post.) I’ll keep this link party open until my next #ThrowbackThursday post (scheduled for October 1, 2020).

  1. This is a lovely idea! I would love to participate! I’m just a bit tight this week and the weekend, but will work on it next week!

    Just to clarify, I can use any old review, or does it have to be the one you chose? (when souls collide)?

    PS: I’ll be late with Six degrees of separation again as well….

    1. Welcome, welcome, welcome! Like I said, it is open all month, and then I start a new one for the next month. You’re welcome to do your post and and you link whenever – even if it isn’t on a Thursday! So, looking forward to both this and your Six Degrees post (better late than never)!


    2. Sorry… I forgot… to add… you can use any old review you want, or any older book you’ve read that you want to review, as well. Up to you how you interpret the Throwback part!
