October TBR

We had a lot of overlap in books this past September, and both of us bit off a bit more than we could chew. But all in all, it was still a great month of reading!

Indiana’s September Wrap-up

Well, I got distracted this month. I didn’t really read what I had actually planned to read and instead I picked up other books along the way. Please tell me someone else knows what I’m talking about . . .

Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng – 3 out of 5 stars

My Year of Rest and Relaxation by Ottessa Moshfegh – 4 out of 5 stars

Public Library by Ali Smith – 5 out of 5 stars

Inkheart by Cornelia Funke – Review to come

The Shame:

The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien

Specials by Scott Westerfeld

Virginia Woolf Reader

Underground Airlines by Ben Winters

Indiana’s October TBR

I’m hoping to make up for this month and finish all the books that I didn’t finish last month, as well as Shirley by Charlotte Bronte and Gulliver’s Travels by Jonathan Swift. I’d also like to start The Labyrinth of Spirits by Carlos Ruiz Zafon.

 

Pete’s September Wrap-up

I managed to get through most of my list this month, with only one straggler. This was one of my best months of reading this year!

Night Flights by Philip Reeve — 3.5 out of 5 stars

The Alloy of Law by Brandon Sanderson — 3.5 out of 5 stars

Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng — 1 out of 5 stars

Public Library by Ali Smith — 3.5 out of 5 stars

The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers — 5 out of 5 stars

The Return of the King by J. R. R. Tolkien — Review to come

The Shame:

Underground Airlines by Ben Winters

Pete’s October TBR

I have a good mix of fantasy and fiction this month, and a lot of these books have been sitting on my shelf for far too long. I’ll be reading Shopgirl by Steve Martin, which my recently passed grandfather gave to me a few months ago. I’m finally taking on Gardens of the Moon by Steven Erikson, and I’m jumping right back into Becky Chambers’s Wayfarers series with A Closed and Common Orbit. I’ll hopefully finish Underground Airlines by Ben Winters in time for one of our book clubs, and then I’m reading The Dispossessed by Ursula K. Le Guin. Finally, I’ll be reading one of Toni Morrison’s best-known works, Beloved.

  1. Nice round up! I’ve seen such polarized reactions to Little Fires Everywhere online, but I have the sense that it’s probably worth skipping after reading both of your thoughts on it. Best of luck with starting on your Oct. TBR lists!
