This week, keeping to the 'book theme', I thought I'd mention the novel I just finished a week ago. One I totally recommend to anyone who loved "Little Women" [by Louisa May Alcott], the classic. THE LOST SUMMER OF LOUISA MAY ALCOTT will have you turning the pages to see just how Louisa chooses her way of life, how she used one summer [tho fictionalized, it's so "real" you think you know her all too well] to make her final decision and life's calling to become an author and nothing else. To be honest, I'm not much of a romance reader, but this work of fiction is so filled with the author's [Kelly O'Connor McNees] imagination of a life long love for Louisa, it's nearly impossible to put down. Following the characters of Little Women, the Lost Summer...brings you back to Jo and Beth and the sisters. Laurie. All the familiar characters. And the highly anticipated ending of this book is NOT disappointing. Very well written. True to Alcott's form in every way. If you liked Little Women, you'll LOVE The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott!!!


  1. After reading your book blurb I am now craving chocolate .... and there is not a morsel to be found.

    I'm not much of a romance reader either but I have always loved Little Women. I'll have to add this one to my wishlist.

  2. Thanks Anni... I love to read and I'll be checking out that book soon!

  3. Not only would I buy this book but I can think of several people who'd want it as a christmas present too - I presume it DOES come with free samples?
    'Orgasmic'? - it's been scientifically proven hasn't it?

  4. Anni--Is this your first time doing a BBF? If yes, I'm so glad. If no, I guess I've missed your previous ones.

    I love the fact that you took this in a nonfiction direction. Being a chocoholic, I would definitely buy this book. Now you just have to write it (ha)!

    I belong to Saturday Writers, a St. Louis/St. Peters group of writers, and we're having the author Kelly O'Connor McNees at our June meeting (the last Saturday in June). Your review of the book makes me think I will probably HAVE to buy the book. Thanks.

  5. Love this, want it. Also liked the quotes at the end. Funny.

  6. Yes I would buy that book,but I hope that it comes with samples or at least those scratch & sniff patches.LOL
    I loved reading Little Women, so I will have to put this one on my list.
    Have a great weekend.

  7. All you ever wanted to know about chocolate and more - excellent;-)

  8. What a fun book about chocolate, Anni.
    And I'm interested in the novel about LM Alcott, one of my favorites since girlhood.

  9. Oh I must read that! I love Ms Alcott's stories!

  10. Why am I craving a piece of chocoate now? LOL! "Yummy" book blurb this week, and thanks for the heads up about the story-I'm looking for a new read...

  11. Now I know how the ice cream in a hot fudge sundae feels! I could feel myself becoming totally immersed in this one. And wanting more.

  12. Sioux....oh, color me green with jealousy. I would dearly love to meet in person the author of "The Lost Summer.....". Lucky, lucky you. Tell me all about it when you're logged into your email account. Or a blog post.

  13. I'm already a chocoholic, so are you trying to kill me here?? I actually got up and went in search of chocolate after reading this, so I guess it's safe to say you drew me in!

    Interesting about The Lost summer. I'll have to add it to my list, thanks!

  14. Hi Anni - Google ate my first comment! (I think I expounded on my love of dark chocolate M&Ms.) I did read your blurb and commented, so I was surprised to learn you thought I'd missed you. Is this Google thing ever going to get fixed, or will it randomly irritate bloggers forever?? I wonder what other comments have been swallowed into the bowels of Google limbo? *sigh*

    I LOVE this blurb, especially the part about "relinquish your soul to chocolate." I'm already there! LOL You've done a terrific job here of hooking me with all the benefits of this book, and with the description of the chocolate itself. "A veritable paradise," you say...and it really sounds like it. This is a must read! Does it come with samples??
