  2. I'm glad October was such a good month for you! I would like to read Commonwealth and Hag-Seed, but most of the other books you read sound interesting too.

    1. Thank you Helen! I can highly recommend both of the ones you want to read. If you have not read Joan Aiken's Willoughby books, I am sure you would like them.

    1. Just keep wishing! It worked for me back when I could never read as much as I wanted.

  4. Wow this is a wonderful array of books. You picked some great ones for Oct. I'm mostly curious about The Big Green Tent b/c you sounded especially thrilled about that one. I will list it on my TBR. I did enjoy Eligible for some laughs in the summer when I did the audio. My 2nd Sittenfeld book.

    1. Yes, I got lucky last month! My review of The Big Green Tent will be up in a few days. I loved it and I bet you will too. Definitely Eligible was good for the LOLs!

  5. Wow what an impressive list Judy ; )
    I haven't been reading as much lately due to my getting distracted by personal things....

    1. Thank you. Personal things and reading do not always go well together. I hope those things are better soon.
