Books Over TV

I love to acquire, hoard, stack, shelve, smell, read and share books. I review books. I stare at books. You get it, right?


October TBR

Diamonds and Pearl - K'wan The Rancher Returns - Brenda Jackson The Underground Railroad (Oprah's Book Club): A Novel - Colson Whitehead The Tea Planter's Wife - Dinah Jefferies The Orphan Mother: A Novel - Robert Hicks Les Parisiennes: How the Women of Paris Lived, Loved, and Died Under Nazi Occupation - Anne Sebba Hag-Seed - Margaret Atwood

I finished one book in September and that was The Summer That Melted Everything by Tiffany McDaniel. That book didn't live up to my expectations at all. After about 30% I lost interest in the plot and characters and forced myself to finish. I made some progress in Underground Airlines by Ben H. Winters, but quickly put it down after I just didn't care what was to come. It was taking way too long to get there. I may pick this book up this month or next, but I'm unsure at this time. I also attempted to read The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead. This book captured me from the very beginning, but due to it's visually detailed content I couldn't and can't read it all the way through without breaks. I'm really hoping to plow through it this month without being so emotional.


September was a difficult month. I had a death in my family and plenty of not-so-good health news. I was knocked off my feet a bit to say the least. But as we adults know that is life.... Expect the unexpected and know tomorrow can be a better day!
