The Sunday Salon Late Edition: October Books Recap

The Sunday

I just got back from Pittsburgh so I’m posting my Sunday Salon a little late (9pm is stil Sunday). Also, I want to stay consistent with this subpar blogging thing I have going on. Accordingly, there will be no photos.

In October, I read:

  1. North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell
  2. The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh (audio)
  3. Every Step You Take by Jock Soto
  4. Supernaturally by Kiersten White
  5. Storm Front by Jim Butcher (audio)
  6. The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster
  7. I Heart You, You Haunt Me by Lisa Schroeder
  8. Goodbye, Chunky Rice by Craig Thompson
  9. Triangles by Ellen Hopkins
My favorite book and least favorite book wree both audios this month. I adored The Language of Flowers. I kind of wish Storm Front didn’t exist.

Last month I reviewed:

An awesome 5 books total. Sorry for the lackluster posting. I would promise to do better but November is looking might busy in the real life department. I’ll do my best. Other than those reviews, I told you which books left me with my mouth hanging openparticipated in Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon, and gave you some gratuitous cat photos.
Have you read any books lately that you really disliked?

    I so want to make time for The Language of Flowers! It has been on my shelf for the longest time, and I am really excite about it. There never seems to be enough time for all the books I want to read. I just finished Mozart’s Last Aria, and in following your theme, I kind of wish that that book didn’t exist!

    I was at the bookstore yesterday and I saw a book called ‘The Language of Flowers’ in the new arrivals section. I read the blurb and couldn’t resist getting it. I tried talking to myself and convincing myself to put it back on the bookshelf, but I couldn’t. I didn’t know anyone else who had read it and I wasn’t sure how the book will be – because sometimes blurbs are wonderful and a book’s premise is wonderful, but after reading one realizes that the book hasn’t delivered on its promise. Then I come today and check my friend Michelle’s blog and discover that ‘The Language of Flowers’ is her favourite read of the previous month 🙂 I am thrilled! Thanks for gushing about it 🙂 I can’t wait to start it.

    It looks like you have had a wonderful reading month in October. Congratulations! Envy you for having read Elizabeth Gaskell’s ‘North and South’ 🙂
