The Sunday Salon: October Recap

Well. What a month it's been! Here's the list of wonderful books I read:

The Angel's Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafon: David yearns to be a famous a writer even to the point of selling his soul.

The Maze Runner by James Dashner: Thomas finds himself in the middle of a maze, and has no memory of his former life, yet for some reason, he knows he must be a Runner.

All the Lovely Bad Ones by Mary Downing Hahn: Two mischievous kids play a ghostly prank that turns around and gets them back.

Black Angels by Linda Beatrice Brown: Three orphaned kids come together to survive the after effects of the Civil War.

The Forever King by Molly Cochran and Warren Murphy: The Arthur legend is reincarnated in modern times.

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseni: Amir tries to make right a terrible betrayal he commits as a kid. (A re-read)

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days by Jeff Kinney: Greg has to survive a long and boring summer that is somehow still full of adventures.

The Amaranth Enchantment by Julie Berry: Lucinda meets the prince, goes to the ball, befriends a witch and learns about her past.

The Seer of Shadows by Avi: A photographer's apprentice learns he has a unique power.

Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen: Auden spends the summer with her dad and step mom and ends up on a quest with a mysterious quiet boy.

Favorites of the month: The Kite Runner was just as good for me the second time around. I also really enjoyed The Angel's Game and The Maze Runner. But once again, they were all amazing books!

And today, I finished the first one for the month of November, Fallen by Lauren Kate. More on that one later!

And now I'm off to a birthday party. Happy reading to all!
