October Confessions

Goodbye, October! 'Tis the season for all the fireside and cozy reads. I have a few ones that I am excited for, because that's what we need after this crazy year, right? Cozy reads for the win!

Books Read in October:
1.  The Lions of Fifth Avenue by Fiona Davis (Adult Historical Fiction) - 4 out of 5 stars
2.  The Glass Ocean by Karen White, Lauren Willig, and Beatriz Williams (Audio Book/Adult Historical Fiction) - 4 out of 5 stars - Review to come!
3.  Troubles in Paradise (Paradise #3) by Elin Hilderbrand (Adult Fiction) - 4 out of 5 stars 
4.  Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier (Adult Fiction/Classic) - 4 out of 5 stars
5.  Chance of a Lifetime by Jude Deveraux and Tara Sheets - 3.5 out of 5 stars - Review to come!
6.  Jack Kennedy: Elusive Hero by Chris Matthews (Biography/Audio Book)  - 4 out of 5 stars - Review to come!

1. Favorite Book:  I think it's a tie between The Glass Ocean and Troubles in Paradise. Both books were good in their own ways...Troubles was a great escape and The Glass Ocean was a fantastic historical read---just what we would expect from Team W. 

2.  Biggest Surprise: Rebecca really took my by surprise. I didn't except such beautiful writing and quote-worthy lines, but I guess that is what makes it a classic.

3.  Biggest Disappointment: Chance of a Lifetime was just ok for me. I was hoping to care much more for the characters and for the story to have more of an Outlander vibe. That wasn't the case, but it was a nice escape overall. 

4.  Favorite Post: Books on the Big Screen: Rebecca

5.  Favorite Part of October: We had some warm days in October, so it was nice to still enjoy the sunshine and lots of walks outdoors.
