|Me, Instagramming October.|
I tried to focus more on scary/suspense books this month, and I kind of succeeded. Genres are difficult for me to stick to. I start reading one thing, and then all of a sudden another book grabs my attention like a shiny object. "Oooooh David Levithan new release MUST READ THAT NOW!" So I did jump around a little.
I read and reviewed 8 books (click links for my reviews):
The Mermaid Chair by Sue Monk Kidd
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn <--this book still blows my mind, you MUST read it
Every Day by David Levithan
Rogue by Mark Sullivan
Feed by Mira Grant
The Mistaken by Nancy S. Thompson
'Salem's Lot by Stephen King
Coraline by Neil Gaiman
I also posted a full review for 1 past read:
In The President's Secret Service by Ronald Kessler
And 2 mini reviews of past reads:
War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy
I Am Charlotte Simmons by Tom Wolfe
AND I started a lil new meme: Small Fry Saturdays! Join in anytime if you have favorite children's books to share.
In the midst of all this, I met Junot Diaz, completed my first two giveaways, and took part in my first blog tour review.
November should be an exciting month, with election season, Thanksgiving, and the beginning of Christmas shopping (gahhhhh)! Plus, it's my husband's birthday--woohoo!
Last month I asked if people had any good recommendations for Halloween reads (and there were TONS), but now I wonder if there are any good ones for this less-written-about holiday.
Do you have any favorite Thanksgiving reads?
