#BookRecommendations with titles that start with the letter ‘B’ #booklovers #bookbloggers #GreatReads

As I mentioned last month, I plan to go through the entire alphabet, one letter per month. For February 2021, I’m listing all of my favourite novels that begin with the letter ‘B‘. I am choosing these titles from the books I’ve read since I began blogging seriously – five years ago (when I retired). My apologies…. there are 30 books recommended here. Who knew so many titles began with B? Included among these are at least 4 of my favourite all-time books!

If the title begins with an initial article such as The, A, An etc., I will be using the second word.  For instance, “A Man called Ove” will be included in my M post. “The Silent Patient” will be listed in my S post.

Hopefully you’ll find something that interests you from these posts. As always, I’ve linked the book cover to Goodreads, and the title link will take you to my review of the book. I’ve included only those books that I’ve rating 4 stars or higher.

    I have read Britt Marie, Bear Town and Broken Girls, all wonderful titles. Before She Disappeared is waiting for me to pick it up at the library, but we had a large snowfall last night, so I did not go anywhere today. Hopefully tomorrow. Lots of others on this list to check out.

    Breakers is brilliant, one of Doug Johnston’s best I think. Also really enjoyed Peter May’s The Black House and all of that trilogy actually.
