October Recap

Here's what I managed to read this month. Mostly YA books still, only two "big kid" books! Only one for a challenge, and one for a book club. Sheesh. These YA books have grabbed me big time.

Criss Cross by Lynne Rae Perkins: Newbery Award Winner, I loved it!
Diary of a Whimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney: all the rage these days... very popular with the kids.
Paint the Wind by Pam Munoz Ryan: another great story by a great author.
The Ninth Key by Meg Cabot: the 2nd in the Mediator series.
Things Not Seen by Andrew Clements: a boy wakes up invisable, then falls in love with a blind girl.
Love, Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli: Stargirls story continues.
Reunion by Meg Cabot: the 3rd in the Mediator series.
A Crack in the Line by Michael Lawrence: another YA series that I stumbled upon and am now hooked to!
Darkest Hour by Meg Cabot: the 4th in the Mediator series
Wives and Daughters by Elizabeth Gaskell: great classic saga about relationships
Evening Class by Maueve Binchy: another fun Binchy book.

My favorites of the month? Hard to say. Wives and Daughers for sure. Out of the YA books, I really liked Things Not Seen, A Crack in the Line, and Criss Cross. But they really are all good.

On to November!!


  1. Why the focus on YA books this month? Any particular reason?

  2. It started with reading a bunch to be ready for the Book Fair. Then I have my ongoing thing with Meg Cabot books, and then my daughter keeps bringing books home from the library that I just have to "hurry and read" before they have to go back.

    I still have quite the stack by my bed to get through. It's crazy.

  3. i have equally high stacks of must reads on my shelves i'm sure
