The end of November has approached and I found this month I didn't quite get everything read that I was hoping to get read. I have two books from last month still on the list. I am over half-way through quiet and my goal for Gone with the Wind was to start it, which I did (a whole whopping 20 pages). I don't know how conducive December is for reading, but we shall see.
From October's Nightstand I read:
- The Four Graces (Miss Buncle Book 4) by D.E. Stevenson - This book is set in Chevis Green (from Miss Buncle Married). I enjoyed the Miss Buncle books more, but this still was an enjoyable read.
- A Question of Honor (Bess Crawford Mysteries) by Charles Todd - I think this has been one of the most suspenseful Bess Crawford books so far. I have really enjoyed this series so far.
- The Reading Promise: My Father and the Books We Shared by Alice Ozma - Okay this book falls in the dreaded memoir genre, which I tend to love or hate. This book is not about books, but rather about the period in the author's life that known as "The Streak", a time when her father read aloud to her everyday, and what happened in her life during that time. If you want to be encouraged to read-aloud to your kids you may enjoy this. If you are wanting to read a book about books, then this isn't it. Honestly, I recommend skipping the book and listening to The Read-Aloud Revival podcast in which the author is featured.
- Midnight Sons Volume 3 by Debbie Macomber - Ummm, Debbie Macomber is not someone I typically read. Someone lent the books to me. I was attempting to bore myself to sleep. It didn't work.
- Somewhere Safe with Somebody Good: The New Mitford Novel by Jan Karon - A new Mitford novel--need I say more. I forgot how much I enjoyed Mitford. One of my favorite reads this year.
- Tried and True by Mary Connealy - Mary Connealy always cracks me up, so I always have a great compulsion to read her books. Pure twaddle.
- One Month to Live: Thirty Days to a No-Regrets Life by Kerry & Chris Shook - This book really surprised me. It definitely gave me food for thought.
- Hickory Dickory Dock by Agatha Christie - Continuing on with the Poirot series. I think Hugh Fraser does an awesome job of narrating.
