Recent Reading, October 2017 edition

estimated 2 min read

If I thought September was a blur, October had an extra day and felt shorter (and not just because of fewer hours of sunlight). Despite the whirlwind I finished nine books, not my best, nor my worst.

Octobers reading included

  1. And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
  2. The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America’s Shining Women by Kate Moore
  3. Quiet Girl in a Noisy World: An Introvert’s Story by Debbie Tung
  4. How to Be Perfectly Unhappy by Matthew Inman, The Oatmeal
  5. Cozy Stash-Busting Knits: 22 Patterns for Hats, Scarves, Cowls & More by Jen Lucas
  6. Sock-Yarn Shawls: 15 Lacy Knitted Shawl Patterns by Jen Lucas
  7. Apex (Hunter #3) by Mercedes Lackey
  8. Circular Knitting Workshop: Essential Techniques to Master Knitting in the Round by Margaret Radcliffe
  9. Grit by Angela Duckworth

I wrote about three books by Jen Lucas at little acorn earlier this week. I’m working on the reviews for NetGalley. Really!

November planned reads

I’m in the middle of many titles, as is always my way. I’ve found that with my schedule settling back into rhythm and routine there is more time for focused reading. I hope to make my way through some or all of the following:

  • Word by Word: The Secret Life of Dictionaries by Kory Stamper
  • Code Girls by Liza Mundy
  • The Stone Sky (The Broken Earth, #3) by N.K. Jemisin
  • How the Body Knows Its Mind: The Surprising Power of the Physical Environment to Influence How You Think and Feel by Sian Beilock
  • A Plague of Giants (Seven Kennings #1) by Kevin Hearne
  • Evicted by Matthew Desmond
  • The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell
  • Nudge: Revised Edition by Richard H. Thaler
  • An Unkindness of Magicians by Kat Howard

It’s an ambitious list. We’ll see how I do.

Is there a title I’ve read that you’re eager to know my thoughts on or a book you think I’ll enjoy? Please let me know!
