Book Report | October 2014

"What really knocks me out is a book that, when you’re all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it." 
— The Catcher in the Rye

I didn't read much this month.  With the autumn weather I have been wanting to create more, keeping my hands busy with knitting and cross stitching projects, as I've watch a couple new to me BBC series.  It has been a wonderful way to spend a bit of time in the evenings, but I'm feeling a pull back into reading, so watch out November, lots of books to finish up.

Here are the books I did get a chance to read.

The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton

Loved, loved, loved it!  One of my favorite reads from 2014!  It pulls you in.  You believe your starting with one mystery and it pulls you through many more.  I absolutely love Kate Morton's style of writing!  This was my 3rd novel of hers read this year.  

War Brides by Helen Bryan

I'm close to finishing this one.  Another WWII story, of a group of young wives and what they experienced during this time.  I'm enjoying the story.  I would have finished this one, but I had to send it back to the library.

Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein

I'll finish this next and soon.  It is gripping, intense.  Another WWII book about  a women who is captured and interrogated by the Nazis.

Messenger by Lois Lowry

This is next on the list.  We just went and saw The Giver.  Jakob had read it for school and we both were excited to see the movie.

Deliberate Motherhood by the Power of Moms

I'm reading this for a Book Group and really enjoying it.  So much information, encouragement, and practical ideas for mothers.

  1. I am such a fan of Kate Morton. I enjoyed The Forgotten Garden very much but liked The Distant Hours even better (just finished it this month). May I say that your reading list so far this year is beyond impressive! I've read maybe 1/4 of the books you list but have heard of many of the others via previous Twitteratures.

  2. Code Name Verity is on my list!!!! I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed it! :)
