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:
- North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell
- The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh (audio)
- Every Step You Take by Jock Soto
- Supernaturally by Kiersten White
- Storm Front by Jim Butcher (audio)
- The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster
- I Heart You, You Haunt Me by Lisa Schroeder
- Goodbye, Chunky Rice by Craig Thompson
- 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 open, participated in Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon, and gave you some gratuitous cat photos.
Have you read any books lately that you really disliked?
I really need to read a Lisa Schroeder and an Ellen Hopkins book!
Just read and reviewed Language of Flowers -http://booknookclub.blogspot.com/2011/10/language-of-flowers-by-vanessa.html – and loved it as well. Looking forward to reading more of your reviews!
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’ 🙂
