Here are my recommended 4 star books from my October list:
- Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking by Susan Cain. I really enjoyed this book. I might be biased as a strong introvert but I found the mix of research and anecdotal segments in this book to be great reading. In fact, not only did I listen to it, but I got the eBook from the library to reread segments of it.
- Eclipse by Richard North Patterson. This is an author I have liked over the years and I'm working through his entire library now. It was a good fit for an audio book with lots of action, twists & turns in the courtroom and an interesting African setting.
- Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarity. Another great read by this author who is shaping up to be my find for 2014. Her books are a wonderful ride with interesting characters, serious issues and a heavy dose of fun too. I get totally absorbed in them right from the start and I love her writing style. I think my favorite is still the 1st one I read - The Husband's Secret - but this one is close.
- Life of Pi by Yann Martel. This book seems to fall into to the love it/hate it category for many. I've had it forever but it wasn't calling my name. Seeing the movie when it came out nudged it up the pile but I still wasn't compelled to pick it up until last month. Put me firmly into the love it category! For me the movie was a 5 star due to the stunning cinematography but the book is excellent in it's own way. The audio book's narrator was a pleasure to listen to.
So that sums up my October reads and I'm linking up to The Bibliophile Files@sarah did it! to see if I can find a few things to add to my To Read list.
