TCL’s #ThrowbackThursday and #LinkParty #12 – Feb 4-Mar 4, 2021.

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. Finally, recently I noticed that Susan Osborn over at A Life in Books is doing a series of posts called “Blasts from the Past“. 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. Finally, I just noticed that Lisa @ Bookshelf Fantasies was doing what she calls Flashback Friday, and I hope she’s still doing them!

I really like all of these ideas 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 #12

No bones about it; this is a lovely book!

My Book Review for “Lovely Bones” by Alice Sebold.

My review starts thusly:

05813-lovely_bones_cover“When George Harvey raped and murdered Suzie Salmon, she was only 14 years old. He did this in a room he dug out underneath the frozen cornfields. The story here, told from Suzie’s point of view after she is dead, are her observations of life on earth.

From this description, one could easily have thought this would be a creepy or morbid novel. It could also have been quite maudlin and sentimental. However, we can be thankful that instead it is simply a beautifully written tale. …”

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

If you have your own Throwback Thursday or any other type of nostalgia post, 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 March 4, 2021).

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

  1. I picked this up used really cheap a few weeks ago. I knew absolutely nothing about the book, never heard of it and didn’t know what it was about. I just thought the cover looked nice (I do this so much!) so I was excited to see your review for it and ill definitely have to make an effort to read it now, it sounds great!
