My November Books

I didn't have nearly as much time to read this month but the few books I did read I really enjoyed!  


1. Ever After by Jude Deveraux-- After reading the first two books in the Nantucket Bride series last month, I just had to finish up the series with this book.  When Hallie discovers that her step sister was about to impersonate her for a job as a physical therapist on Nantucket (and take over a house that was left to Hallie by a relative living there), Hallie impulsively decides to fly to Nantucket to escape her life.  She meets James Taggart and knows there must be more to his injuries than an old skiing accident.  The more she gets to know James, the more she falls for him and she can't help but wonder if her heart is bound to be broken once again.


2.  Fairytale by Danielle Steel-- Camille has grown up in a real life fairytale.  Her doting parents have been happily married for ages and have worked hard to build a wonderful, thriving vineyard in the Napa valley.  Then Camille's mother grows sick and dies and her father remarries a horrible woman determined to make Camille's life miserable.  When tragedy strikes again Camille finds herself struggling to save her home, her business, and even her life.


3. A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson-- I am not usually one to read a lot of non- fiction books but this one was highly recommended to me by a few of the ladies I hike with.  And I just LOVED it! By page 18 I had already read three different parts of it aloud to my boys and laughed so hard at one part that I was crying.  Based on the author's real- life adventure hiking the Appalachian trail this books was a fun add to my monthly reading. I learned a lot about the trail system and the history of the entire region too.


4.  Handle With Care by Jodi Picoult -- This book was so heartbreaking.  Written as a series of letters to Willow, a young child who was born with brittle bones syndrome, this book takes you through the struggles of one family and their friends as they try to live normal lives with a child who is constantly breaking bones.

  1. A fun list of books. I should read A Walk In The Woods since I live right next to the Appalachian Trail.

    1. It was a fun book and I learned to much about the trail... I also learned that it is NOT something I want to try hiking for more than a day at a time. :)

  2. I love these monthly recap posts that share all the books! I think it expands our appreciation even if we can't read them all!

    1. Oh my yes, there are just way to many wonderful ones out there to read them all. But I do love reading about what others are reading and trying "new" to me authors and books every now and then.

  3. I've never read anything by Bill Bryson, but I want to! I'm glad you liked the book - I think there is a movie based on it!

    1. I did just see that movie advertised somewhere and thought I'd have to try it since I did enjoy the book.
