My Twentysomething Life

I Do, Make, Read, Watch, Eat…

October

The Pioneer Woman: Black Heels to Tractor Wheels–Ree Drummond
This is the love story of Ree Drummond and her husband.  I really enjoyed this sweet, entertaining story.
The Last Dance–Melody Carlson
This was the last book in the Carter House Girls series and I will say that I was sad to see it end.  I enjoyed this series.  It was quick and easy to read.
Catch Me–Lisa Gardner
Probably one of my favorites in the DD Warren Series.  This was a really good mystery with a twist I didn’t see coming.
Les Miserables–Victor Hugo
A little long for my taste.  It took me forever to read it.  After seeing the movie, I would have enjoyed a more condensed version of the book because I was waiting for the “good parts”.
My Last Supper–Melanie Dunea
50 chefs telling what their last meal would be.  This was an enjoyable foodie book.
The Secret’s In the Sauce–Linda Shepherd
I hated this book.  I almost had to give up on it halfway through.
William Shakespeare’s Star Wars–Ian Doescher
Just a fun book to read.
Lady Susan–Jane Austen
Not my favorite Austen book, but still enjoyable.
When You Were Mine–Rebecca Serle
I seriously loved this book the whole time I was reading it.  I really enjoyed this love story.  It made me cry, laugh, and cry again.
The Fairy Godmother–Mercedes Lackey
I really enjoyed this retelling of fairy tales.  I think I am going to enjoy this series.
The Madman’s Daughter–Megan Shepherd
This book started out very good, it felt like a Tess Gerritsen novel, and then things got, well, mad.  It was still very good, but it was definitely not at all what I had expected.
What Women Should Know about Facing Fear–Christin Ditchfield
This was a very good book and I am very glad that I read it.  I highly recommend it to anyone who is facing fear, worry, and anxiety.
The Spectacular Now–Tim Tharp
I know that everyone loves this book and says great things about it, but I really did not like it.  It was definitely not what I expected.
The Bitter Kingdom–Rae Carson
This was the final book in the series and I am glad that I finished it.  I really enjoyed the series.  It is a good one.  And this book really ended it well.
A Stolen Life–Jaycee Dugard
This book was a really hard one to read.  It is about a girl who was kidnapped and abused and was not reunited with her family until 18 years later.
One Good Knight–Mercedes Lackey
This book was pretty good.  It was an enjoyable read.
Red Dragon–Thomas Harris
A creepy book.  The first in the Hannibal Lector series.
The Best of Us–Sarah Pekkanen
A story about a bunch of college friends.  Very good and entertaining.
700 Sundays–Billy Crystal
Pretty funny, but not as funny as I was hoping for.
Eleanor and Park–Rainbow Rowell
I love this author, she is great.  This book was so good.  I really enjoyed it.
Bridget Jones’s Diary–Helen Fielding
Sadly, not as good as the movie.  I was expecting more.
Eat the Cookie…Buy the Shoes–Joyce Meyer
This book was just meh.  I was not very impressed and did not find it very helpful.
Premiere–Melody Carlson
Just a fun, quick read.  These nice lighthearted, fast and easy reads are a good break from everything else.
Stuck–Jennie Allen
I found this to be a very good and helpful bible study.
The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry–Rachel Joyce
This was a very enjoyable book, a little slow in some parts, but overall very good.
Allegiant–Veronica Roth
I really loved this final book in the Divergent trilogy.  If you have not yet read these books–do it!
Fortune’s Fool–Mercedes Lackey
I had enjoyed the other books in this series, but I would give this one thumbs down.  I did not like it and probably won’t read any more in the series.  I just got really bored.
10 Temptations of Church–John Flowers
Sometimes I feel like if you’ve read one book about the church you’ve read them all.
Serena–Ron Rash
A very intriguing and interesting story.
Inkheart–Cornelia Funke
I enjoyed the idea of this book, but found it to be too long and drawn out.
The Joy of a Promise Kept–Denalyn Lucado
Not the best book I’ve read on how to be a good wife.  Was disappointed in this book.
