October Reading Recap

Still trying to "catch up" these days. I felt like I got behind in the summer, so I'm still trying to make up for that. Not bad this month I think, considering one of the books was over 1000 pages!

So here's what I read this month:

 Miles from Ordinary by Carol Lynch Williams: A sad story about a girl who is dealing with her mom's major depression.

The Home Ranch by Ralph Moody: A memoir of the author's experiences being a cowhand on a ranch in Colorado when he was just 12 years old.

 Entwined by Heather Dixon: I loved this retelling of the 12 dancing princesses fairy tale.

 Crossed by Ally Condie: Cassia's fight against The Society continues.

Red Glove by Holly Black: Cassel must choose between helping the cops or working with the mafia.

The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima: The adventures of Han (a street rat) and Raisa (a princess) begin in this wonderful fantasy series.

 Under the Dome by Stephen King: How will this small town cope when an invisible dome cuts them off from the outside world?

 Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson: Strange things are going on with Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Utterson finally gets to the bottom of it.

Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice: Louis tells his story of how lonely and conflicting being a vampire can be.

Variant by Robison Wells: Benson gets sent to what he thinks is a posh boarding school, but when he gets there he finds out it's actually a prison of sorts.

Favorites of the month include: Entwined, The Demon King, Under the Dome and Variant.

Plans for November:

  • Start and hopefully finish the next Wheel of Time book, The Path of Daggers (number 8 for those keeping track.)
  • Re-read A Tree Grows in Brooklyn for book club.
  • Read The Death Cure.
  • Read The Night Circus
  • Read anything else that's stacked up around here! Anything! Make a dent!


  1. 10 books! Wow. I thought because we read Under the Dome I wouldn't read very many other books but I did manage 9. I almost forgot about A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, I better hurry and get to it.

  2. Why is it that every time I come to read your posts I always end up adding more books to my TBR Pile?!

  3. Jenny: Yeah, not bad, right?

    Ang: YES! Just what's supposed to happen!
