Books Of The Month: October 2015

I read every day, just not as much as I would like to.

Black Heart by Holly Black

One phrase description: Magic.

Quote:

Getting through it once makes it easier to believe that it can be gotten through again.

My general thoughts: I read the other two books in the series forever ago, but that being said, I think I liked White Cat and Red Glove a little more. My old age is getting to me. Thanks Goodreads for the beautiful picture. Bite me. I borrowed the book from the library, so it wasn’t camera worthy.

White Noise by Don DeLillo

One phrase description: Think of this novel like the shape of a U because the beginning and ending was much more bearable than the middle.

Quote:

Every disaster made us wish for more, for something bigger, grander, more sweeping.

My general thoughts: Not my kind of book. I probably wouldn’t have finished it if I didn’t have to.

Arcadia by Tom Stoppard

One phrase description: Short, sweet, sublime.

Quote:

It’s the best possible time to be alive, when almost everything you thought you knew is wrong.

My general thoughts: A challenging read, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. I recommend watching the play being performed or listening to the audio version of it as well.

The Eye of Minds by James Dashner

The Eye of Minds by James Dashner

One phrase description: Almost like a video game playing out in the form a book, although it’s probably better suited as a movie.

Quote:

Your demons are always with you.

My general thoughts: Since “everything is relative”, the Maze Runner books were more well-written than this one. At least, I didn’t see the plot twist coming.

I’m currently reading…

Beloved by Toni Morrison

Beloved by Toni Morrison

Why: University and because I’ve always wanted to.

Until next month…November. You know what that means.

My Current To Be Read Pile

As impossible as it seems, I want to get around to reading every book under the sun.

These are the books that I’ll be reading in the near future because I purchased them for one reason or another.

My Current To Be Read Pile

But I’m still undecided as to which of the six I should read first.

  1. I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore
  2. Divergent by Veronica Roth
  3. The Finisher by David Baldacci
  4. The Eye of Minds by James Dashner
  5. The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
  6. Someone is Watching by Joy Fielding

Maybe you could decide for me.
