Books read in October & November

I did well in October and came to a screeching halt in November!  My excuses are:  decided to crochet another afghan, did not feel well,  depression and anxiety in greater quantity then normal.. and.. the holidays..

Slow as I get I haven't quit yet! I may skip a day or only read 10 pages in a day.. but the books are always by my side. I don't expect any great increase for December but I hope the enjoyment of it picks up.  If not, I know exactly what to do... I reread a favorite book that I KNOW makes me want to keep reading it!  

Anyway... this is my list from October and November.. hard to believe December is here!  


60..The Angel of Darkness...............Caleb Carr..........(629 pgs)

61..Rosemary the Hidden Kennedy Daughter.Kate Larson........(320 pgs)

62..Sons & Brothers.....................Richard D Mahoney...(441 pgs)

63..Eleanor: The Years Alone............Joseph P Lash.......(367 pgs)

64..The Girl on the Train...............Paula Hawkins.......(323 pgs)

65..The Storied Life of A J Fikry.......Gabrielle Zevin.....(288 pgs)

66..Thirteen Days:Cuban Missile Crisis..Robert F Kennedy....(185 pgs)

67..The Hidden History of JFK Assassination...Lamar Waldon..(400 pgs)

I read 4 books on the Kennedy family.  I have to say that Sons and Brothers ( JFK and RFK) and Hidden History of JFK Assassination were both quite enlightening!  I liked all 4 of the books.

Then I read Eleanor: The Years Alone.  Eleanor Roosevelt .. the woman, who is she were alive, I'd vote for to be President!! (certainly better than anyone running at the moment!)

Caleb Carr is an author I have read before and manages to write long books that keep me reading.

The Girl on the Train has had a lot of hype.  At first my one celled brain was confused, as the author continually wrote in "first person" no matter who the person was, so I would be reading and suddenly wonder who it was that was talking!  But eventually I "got it" and the book was very good.

The Storied Life of A J Fikry was an enjoyable read.  It's a feel good book for sure.

So that's it for 2 months.. not a one I didn't enjoy reading!

You amaze me, Pat......The amount of books you read in two months time is quite incredible, in my view.
I just don't seem able to read many books anymore......Not sure why, but, that's how it is....I always enjoy reading about the books you have read----And, I'd vote for Eleanor, too!!!

Four books on the Kennedys is fantastic, Pat! Always love seeing pics of your gorgeous bookshelves. No wonder they call it bookporn. LOL! You're exactly ten books ahead of me this year... I got distracted by jigsaw puzzles July to September.
