Ahh October. Mr. G and I are keeping our calendars free for a lot of relaxation this month because November is full of birthday parties and holidays (and hopefully a day trip to NYC!).
Nothing new to report as far as goals go, so just a reading update. It was a slow month. I needed one of those :)
- The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell - A tough one to describe in a short synopsis. Basically, there are 6 mini books (all intertwined) in this one novel. It begins as the story of Holly, a fifteen year old who leaves home after a fight with her mother and has some strange experiences in the countryside. The 4 stories that follow are told by important people in Holly's life, and then the last one returns to Holly. A well done mix of realistic fiction and fantasy.
- The Magicians by Lev Grossman - Quentin is super smart, depressed, and unsatisfied with his life. He accidentally stumbles upon a school for magicians in upstate New York, and the book chronicles his years there and the few months after graduation. I didn't really enjoy it.
- Me Before You by Jojo Moyes - This has been in my library queue for about 6 months, so I was pumped when it finally came in. And I loved it! It's the story of Lou after she loses her job at a nearby cafe. She's hired by a local family to take care of their son, Will, a quadriplegic. They slowly get to know each other and a relationship develops. Delightful :)
How was your September?
