In the past week, I feel like I'm finally getting back into a routine with my reading. It feels so good to enjoy the pieces of my day I carve out for reading (and blogging) rather than being restless and distracted. Sadly, I only managed to read six books in October. Even worse: I only reviewed one of them! I can tell you I enjoyed all of the books I read; all six were at least 4-star reads. I'll be posting reviews soon (and catching up on some lingering reviews from August and September too!)
Here's what I read in October:
Beautiful Lies by Clare Clark (my review)
The Last Runaway by Tracy Chevalier (coming January 2013)
Astray by Emma Donoghue
Ten Thousand Saints by Eleanor Henderson
Angel's Tip by Alafair Burke
A Possible Life by Sebastian Faulks (coming December 2012)
What I'm reading now:
I just started Louise Erdrich's Plague of Doves, which was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in 2009. Her latest novel, The Round House, which was named a National Book Award finalist, is a sequel of sorts to The Plague of Doves, so I'm reading it first. I'm also listening to Death of an Artist by Kate Wilhelm, a standalone mystery, on audio.
In November, I'm hoping to dig into the National Book Award list and make progress on my towering TBR. Honestly, as long as I can keep my reading mojo and get back to reading 10-12 books a month, I'll be happy.
Coming tomorrow: an announcement
Stop by tomorrow after 6 a.m. eastern for a special announcement of a new feature I'm beginning. I'm really excited about this undertaking and hope you all will join me on this adventure!
