October Reading Wrap-Up

While I didn't accomplish as much as I'd hoped to blogging-wise in October (this seems to be a recurring theme LOL), I still managed to have a great reading month.   Here's a list of the books I finished (click on the title, where applicable, to read my review):
  • Attachments by Rainbow Rowell;
  • Rough Passage to London by Robin Lloyd (review to come);
  • Divergent by Veronica Roth;
  • Insurgent by Veronica Roth;
  • Allegiant by Veronica Roth; and
  • The Cartographer of No Man's Land by P.S. Duffy (review to come)

Of these novels, I was most impressed with Colossus: The Four Emperors and The Cartographer of No Man's Land.   Unfortunately, the Divergent trilogy did not end on a high-note for me.   I really enjoyed the first two novels in the trilogy - Divergent and Insurgent - but the final novel, Allegiant, was a disappointment. 

What were the highlights (or lowlights) of September book-wise for you?

  1. Great, diverse list of books. I'm looking forward to your review of Cartographer of No Man's Land. I read Illuminations a while back and thoroughly enjoyed it. My favorite October read was probably Daniel Kalla's Rising Sun, Falling Shadow, and I'm also still reading Elisabeth Storrs' The Golden Dice, which I began in October.

  2. Wow, that's a lot of books you read. Some time ago I thought of trying the Divergent books as a YA pick, but people only seem to be happy with the first book, so I'm giving it a pass. What did you think of Attachments? I haven't completely given up on thought to try a Rainbow Rowell book at some point.

  3. Sometimes it's nice to just sit back and read without having to stop and compose a blog post. I forget sometime that I read for ENJOYMENT- it's not a homework assignment. So good for you having a great reading month!

  4. Wow - that's an impressive reading list! I continue to collect books on my TBR but reading time has really taken a hit with family activities. It's all good and family is the priority.....the books will wait. Have a great November!
