The Sunday Salon: October in Review

What I Read:
The Great Gilly Hopkins (reviewed here)
Girl in Hyacinth Blue (reviewed here)
Tallgrass (reviewed here)
Shattered Dreams (reviewed here)
Run (reviewed here)

Favorite Book of the Month:
Tallgrass by Sandra Dallas

Least Favorite:
Nothing was dreadful this month. Shattered Dreams did get on my nerves about two-thirds of the way through, so I'd have to pick this memoir of a polygamous marriage as my least favorite. Still, it was interesting.

• Book Review Carnival
• Semicolon's Saturday Review of Books weekly

I love your reading blog. It's inspiring me to create my own reading blog. I'm debating between doing a general reading blog or a poetry blog.

I recently picked up a copy of Tallgrass at the store and am looking forward to reading it. It looks like you had a great bookish month. :-) Have a wonderful week! said...

Great blog, "SmallWorld Reads". As an author, I appreciate what you're doing for books. I see you have an interest in parenting. I'd love you to review my book,
Where Am I Sleeping Tonight?-A Story of Divorce".
