This is one of my favorite link ups that I have always taken part in. I couldn’t not blog and read and not join in with everyone at 5 Minutes for Books
. It occurs the last Tuesday of every month. You share what you have been reading, what is still hanging out on your nightstand, and what you plan to read if you like.
I haven’t completed a lot of books in October because the one book that I actually picked up was over 900 pages! Because I have always enjoyed Halloween I picked up an old Anne Rice novel… It was as good as I remembered it and it didn’t scare me to death!
For the month of October I have listened to:
A short story from part of the actual Divergent series. Gives more detail and insight on the character Four.
Of course we all know that this is a prequal to The Lord of the Rings. It seems to always make more sense when you reat the prequal. (as in the Star Wars books!)
This was a great little story about a father and daughter who made a promise to read for 100 nights and it just didn’t seem right to stop so they continued for over 3000 nights!
This was a story about an little girl and her wonderful Grandmother. Grandmothers aren’t always the best “mothers” as this book comes to show (and I know that of myself!). Not what I expected it to be but I liked it.
A good murder mystery solved by a detective, medical examiner, journalist, and prosecuting attorney… All women who formed a club to solve this murder. It was pretty good. Had some language in it that might offend but it was “real”.
I’m currently reading/listening to:
So far I haven’t figured out where this story is leading. Hope it picks up soon.
Still working on this one…It’s taken me all month!
