This week's Book Blogger Hop, sponsored by Crazy for Books, is more self-referential than usual: Share your favorite post from the last month and tell us why it's close to your heart. Somehow this feels more difficult to answer, more self-aggrandizing than merely sharing our opinions on other topics. But then again, I suppose none of us would be blogging if we didn't think we had *something* worth sharing.
I guess my favorite post from last month is my review of The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, which pubs in September from Doubleday. I found it a difficult review to write because I loved the book so much, and I was incredibly gratified and touched when the author contacted me and told me that though she had read many positive reviews about her book so far, mine was the first one to make her weep. Uh, in a good way, that is.
