I have two books to read that I'm very excited about The Wise Man's Fear and The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. I also have two fashion books (by Tim Gunn and Marisa Lynch) since I'm curious now that I have my capsule wardrobe at work on if I can make it better. And then there are two highly-rated "quick" reads The Awakening and The Phantom Tollbooth. Should make for a good month of reading.
From October's Reading...
I swapped War & Peace for A Knight of Seven Kingdoms. I was on the wait list for the book and when it showed up I needed to read it. I was thinking the book would be more difficult than it was, more of a history of Westeros. I'm glad it wasn't because it was more fun and humorous than I was anticipating.
I read two self-help book. Women Living Well is a Christian helpmate book based on a popular blog, I think. It was okay for what it is. I have enjoyed this style of support in the past but it's just not working for me now. I feel like a lot of Christian stuff is just serve and give and take a bubble bath when you are burnt out. I give enough people bubble baths so I think Codependent No More was much better. It's also a Christian book and it says it's okay not to give and serve. I like to hear that. Also was a good reminder that all you need in life is someone to love, something to do, and something to look forward to.
Lastly I read What the Dormouse Said and picked out some of my favorite quotes and read the books and I was not amused. The best new-to-me classic was The Runaway Bunny. It was sweet with a sense of humor but I'm not buying the book and has no plans to get it from the library again.
