My October Reading List

I've had some pretty great books to read this month.  I found a few new authors to try and some "new to me" books from some of my favorite authors.  I either get books through the local library, inter-library loan, or for free on my Kindle.  There's nothing I enjoy more than snuggling up with a good book in front of a roaring fire... but I read a lot and books can get expensive...



The Island House by Nancy Thayer-- Of course this book takes place on the island of Nantucket.  It follows one family and all of their friends through a pivotal summer that changes all of their lives.  I just love how deeply all the family relationships are outlined and the way they always ban together during tough times.


A Bend in The Road by Nicholas Sparks-- When one deputy finally puts his life back together after tragically loosing his wife in a hit and run it all threatens to fall apart as evidence arises pointing to his wife's killer.

A Bend in the Road by [Sparks, Nicholas]

While I'm Falling by Laura Moriarty-- One young struggling college student finds that her family is not always able to bail her out.  The year her parents go through their divorce is a particularly trying year for her and she finds that she often has to help them up and out rather than relying on them to always help her.   A story of an entire family trying to find their way and forge their own path in life while still hanging on to each other.


Flight Patterns by Karen White-- A family life shrouded by secrets starts to unravel with the introduction of a porcelain plate.  When Georgia is forced to go back home and face her family all in the name of tracing a rare porcelain plate family secrets are revealed that threaten to put an even bigger rift into the relationships of one volatile family.


Two by Two by Nicholas Sparks-- When one man's life is thrown into chaos he's left pondering his daughter's favorite book Tow by Two.  He learns that he's stronger than he thought and that friends crop up when you need them most.  I just loved this heartwarming story of one man's struggle to become a dad, build a business and balance his expectations with his wife's.


Rushing Waters by Danielle Steel-- When a category one hurricane hits New York City the lives of 6 people are about to change forever.  The close up look at all the struggles and trials are quite heart- wrenching.

    1. Yeah, I do read A LOT! Usually it only takes me 2-3 days to reach each book and then I have to take a break in between books to clean house and make sure my family is still around and alive ;)

  5. Joanne, I have always loved to read. Nicholas Sparks is one of my favorite authors. He writes such lovely stories that you wouldn't think would come from a man. I have quite a few signed first editions of his. xo
