There is nothing like cuddling under a blanket on the sofa, reading a good book and drinking a hot beverage.
The colder months almost always mean I feel like I spend more time reading. It’s ironic, because I don’t necessarily read more books during the winter. I read a ton during my summers off and during summer travel. But I still feel like I read more in the winter. Maybe it’s because I read in for longer stretches of time.
Either way, I’ve been reading, I’ve just been a bit behind on my posting.
Let’s throw it back a bit so I can catch up, shall we? I promise the books are still good, even if you don’t know about them right after I finished reading them.
I read nine books in October. Of those, I gave three perfect grades.
I haven’t read any of Kelly’s other books, but I found this memoir about her relationships refreshingly honest and relatable.
In the book, Kelly shares with us 12 essential phrases that she’s learned to use in her life and the stories of those lessons. Some of Kelly’s 12 hard things she’s learning (or has learned) to say are things we all need to learn to tell others.
The good news is that doctors are able to repair the leg, and it looks like Mindy will ski again. The bad news is that doctors discover Mindy has leukemia and needs a stem cell transplant to live.
Mindy’s parents struggle to come to terms with the real tragedy while also figuring out how to tell Mindy that she’s not actually their daughter. Now they have to find Mindy’s birth parents to save her life.
Lilith Wade was arrested 15 years ago for murdering six woman. Her now 30-year-old daughter, Edie Beckett, is just trying to live her life out of the spotlight.
But Edie also has a secret. She’s obsessed with the families of Lilith’s victims and spends most of her time learning everything about them.
When the husband of one of her mother’s victims is found murdered, Edie’s strange hobby comes to light and she is the prime suspect.
There they are, my favorite books of October! Better late than never seems like my motto lately. Regardless, I hope you find something on the list to read and love.
As always, happy reading!
