October Reads and Reviews
Hello everyone! Today I'll be sharing the books that I read in October, which was less than usual. I had a little slump in the middle of the month when I didn't read much, but I still managed to get in three books. Unfortunately they were all kind of duds and just didn't do it for me (but that happens some months!). It's just about that time of year for cozy holiday books which makes me really excited, so if you have any suggestions for what to read in the next few months please leave them below!
Delicious! by Ruth Reichl
Grown by Tiffany D. Jackson
This is such a sad story, but it seemed to focus more on telling Enchanted's story of the horrors of fame / what Korey did instead of the "mystery" of her waking up around dead bodies. It was a great story and I went through it really quickly but it just didn't live up to the hype I had from Monday's Not Coming. It definitely should serve as a PSA for any parents who want their kids in show biz though...scary stuff.
The Dreamers by Karen Thompson Walker
I liked the premise and writing of this book, but it seemed to not really go anywhere and drag on. I wanted to learn more or have some big mystery solved by the end, so it was kind of a let down. But still an interesting subject (even though it hit very close to home). Some people complained about the number of characters and not getting to know them, but I liked the different stories and how people dealt with/were affected by the disease.
