MONTHLY WRAP-UP | OCTOBER 2014

      8 Comments on MONTHLY WRAP-UP | OCTOBER 2014
October 2014

This month had its highs and lows reading-wise – but I have to say that Emily St. John Mandel’s Station Eleven was outstanding. I tore through it while simultaneously needing to know what happens RIGHT THE HELL NOW, and never, ever wanting it to end. I think it’s one of those rare books pretty much everyone will find something to like in, so I highly recommend that you scurry your buns down to your nearest book dealer and acquire yourself a copy. You can thank me (with more books, of course) later. The other books I finished were:

The Woman Who Went To Bed For A Year - Sue Townsend       Mr. Churchill's Secretary - Susan Elia MacNeal       The Maze Runner - James Dashner

I also started:

Not That Kind of Girl - Lena Dunham       Not My Father's Son - Alan Cumming
Glory O'Brien's History of the Future       Nightmares! - Jason Segel and Kirsten Miller

Loving Not That Kind of Girl and Not My Father’s Son so far. Glory O’Brien is…. weird. Not sure where it’s going or if I want to go there. Nightmares! is really engaging – it’s for younger audiences so it’s easy to get into and should be a quick read.

Here are the reviews I posted in October:

In other news, here’s what you might have missed around the blog this month:

I’ve enjoyed October’s reads – and so many great books came out that I’ve got plenty I’m looking forward to.Now it’s your turn – which stellar books did you finish in the past month? Did you pick up any great ones you’re excited to read? Share in the comments!

    I can't wait to hear what you think! I've got her other three books sitting on my shelf. I'm trying to contain myself and not devour them all at once, but I'm not gonna lie – it's really difficult!

    Oh, you are in for a treat! I just published my review of it today. I LOVED it – and I immediately ordered every single other book by her I could find! I'm rationing them out though, because when I truly love an author's work, I like knowing there's more of their work out there still to be enjoyed – which is the main reason I still haven't read Rainbow Rowell's Attachments!
