#BookRecommendations with titles that start with the letter ‘M’ #GreatReads

Last year I started going through the entire alphabet, one letter per month. For January 2022, the thirteenth month of my endeavor, I’m listing all of my favourite novels that begin with the letter ‘M‘. I am choosing these titles from the books I’ve read since I began this blog. There are 15 books recommended here.

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.

    Great post! Some favourite M’s… ‘My Cousin Rachel by Daphne du Maurier, Mansfield Park by Jane Austen, the Mog picture books by Judith Kerr.


    • Thanks. These are all great. I absolutely loved “My Cousin Rachel” as well. For these posts I’ve only included those titles that I’ve reviewed on my blog and I read that many, many years before I began blogging.

  2. Two Rachel Joyce, one Backman, and one Strout – that’s a great list! I’d love to read “Margreete’s Harbor” – I tried but didn’t get the ARC.

    Magpie Lane is wonderful..spooky,suspenseful,has a “hero”who throws out bits of arcane knowledge that need to be followed up at the end,a sympathetic heroine and child character.One of my favourite books ever

    I want to read Magpie Lane and both the Rachel Joyce books. Mile Marker 139 is a book that needs more hype. I am glad to see it on your list. I really liked it as well.
