What I Read in September

Last month's reads:

The Forgotten Garden- Kate Morton: this is by the same author as The House At Riverton which I read last month.  It's another mystery and it jumps around a couple of different time periods, which was a little confusing at time but it was fun figuring out the twists and turns.

Gone Girl- Gillian Flynn: Are my mom and I the only ones who were totally disappointed by this book?  I really enjoyed the first half of the book and I wont give anything away but half way through there is a huge shift and everything you ever thought you knew about this book is wrong and I hated the ending!

Divergent- Veronica Roth: Part 1 of a trilogy. It's like a combination of The Hunger Games and The Giver.

Insurgent- Veronica Roth:
Part 2 of the trilogy. The 3rd book sadly doesn't come out until sometime next fall but I think movies are already in the works. Fun fact, the author is only 23!

Lightning- Dean Koontz: I've read this book a bunch of times before. It's one of my favorites. I very clearly remember my 8th grade English teacher telling me it was her favorite book. I've heard it's different from Dean Koontz's other novels, but I haven't read anything else by him so I can't vouch for that. All I know is it's this great suspenseful thriller about a woman who's life is altered by a series of strange events and I love it!

(Oh and I also re-read the first 4 Harry Potter's, working on # 5 now. I never get sick of them. hehe)

  2. I wish I could read a fraction of the amount that you read! I guess the metro really helps with that!

    1. Yes- the metro, and especially metro delays, help provide ample reading time.
