Books I Read in October

I read another half- dozen books this month and while I enjoyed most of them I can't say any one book really stuck out in my mind.  I kept waiting for that one book that I just could not put down...

6.  Wrinkle in Time (graphic novel) by Madeleine L'Engle-- I honestly did not enjoy this book at all.  I'm not sure if it was because it was a graphic novel but I had a very hard time following the story.  Meg and her brother Charles do not fit in where they live and when they encounter Mrs. Who, Mrs. Which and Mrs. Whatsit who whisk them and their friend off to the outer reaches of the universe to save the world and bring Meg's missing dad back home.

  1. Wow! You read a lot. I can't remember when I read an actual book. I'm usually struggling so much to keep up with reading on the Internet, plus my bible study books. I'm reading a book by Kay Arthur now and a Bible Journaling book.

    1. Yeah I fairly devour books. This year I took on a 52 week reading challenge that has forced me to read books from other genres and a bit outside my comfort zone. With just two months left to go I really need to buckle down in order to finish a few areas I've been avoiding.
