Despite October being a busy month for us, it wasn’t too bad as far as reading goes. With November being NaNoWriMo we might struggle to finish everything on our lists, but here’s to hoping we can get it all read!
Pete’s October Wrap-up
October was a solid month, but I didn’t quite get to everything. That means I’ll need to read a bit more to hit 60 by the end of the year!
Shopgirl by Steve Martin — 4 out of 5 stars
The Dispossessed by Ursula K. Le Guin — Review to come
Beloved by Toni Morrison — Review to come
A Closed and Common Orbit — Review to come
Gardens of the Moon by Steven Erikson
Pete’s November TBR
I have a handful of books I’ve been eagerly anticipating on my November to-read list. One of the biggest ones is Skyward by Brandon Sanderson. I haven’t been reading the chapters he’s released early, but I look forward to digging in when it comes out. I’m also reading Paradise by Toni Morrison because I can’t stop reading her work. Indi and I are reading An Absolutely Remarkable Thing by Hank Green, which is off to a fun start. After many years, I’m finally getting around to Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen. And on top of all of this, I’m doing NaNoWriMo… it’s going to be a crazy month of reading and writing!
Indiana’s October Wrap-up
Once again, I got a bit distracted this month. I read a lot, just not the books that were on my TBR.
I got on a classics and Young Adult kick instead. However, I did manage to finish:
The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien — 4.5 out of 5 stars
Specials by Scott Westerfeld — 4 out of 5 stars
Underground Airlines by Ben Winters — 2 out of 5 stars
Gulliver’s Travels by Jonathan Swift — Review to come
Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy — Review to come
Everything Everything — Review to come
Shirley by Charlotte Bronte
Indiana’s November TBR
I’m planning on reading Every Day by David Levithan, Little Women by Louisa May Alcott, An Absolutely Remarkable Thing by Hank Green and Imposter by Scott Westerfeld. I’d also like to finish Shirley by Charlotte Bronte, which has been taking me forever to read for some reason, and make headway on The Labyrinth of Spirits by Carlos Ruiz Zafon.
