I really enjoy a gorgeous October. Maybe in 2021 that’s what we’ll get. This one was snowy, cold, and fairly disastrous for the country I live in. But, we’re here to talk about books, yes? Here’s what I managed to read this month:
Our Souls at Night – Kent Haruf
Caste: The Origins of our Discontents – Isabel Wilkerson
The Mercies – Kiran Millwood Hargrave
Rust & Stardust – T. Greenwood
The Exiles – Christina Baker Kline
The Splendid and the Vile – Erik Larson
Trials of the Earth – Mary Hamilton Mann
Pardonable Lies – Jacqueline Winspear
11 books, not too shabby! I did have a number of false starts with books that I ended up adding to my Did Not Finish pile. Life is too short for books that aren’t speaking to me. Sometimes it’s the book, sometimes it’s me… sometimes it’s just some weird combination of timing and mood. You know how it goes.
How was your month? Did you read something that you want to shout from the rooftops about? Let me know!
