The Books I Read in October

Tuesday, November 26, 2019

One of my friends read 6 books last month. What? How does she do that? I wish there were more hours in the day to read. There are so many books to read and so little time. Speaking of so little time, I was able to read only two books this month. Both of them were quick reads that I thoroughly enjoyed. I highly recommend both of these books. They are definitely page-turners! I'm 3 books away from meeting my reading goal for the year, and I'm not sure I'll be able to do it with the holidays coming up, but I'm going to give myself a pep talk and go for it and maybe even exceed my goal by one book.

Believe Me by J.P. Delaney         5/5 stars
Back in March, I read another book by J.P. Delaney. It was a little odd, and I half expected this one to follow similar patterns. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it didn't. This book moves fast and has a lot of twists and turns, which I love from a book. There's nothing more exciting about reading than the unexpected. This psychological thriller will have you on the edge of your seat as you try to figure out who is the villain and who are the good guys.

Watch Me Disappear by Janelle Brown        5/5 stars
How I acquired this book is a funny backstory. Harper and I were at the grocery store when she wandered over to the bargain book rack to browse. She came back, and I asked her if she found anything good. She held up this book and said, "Yeah, I think so.". I read the back cover and recalled picking the book up off the very same bargain rack a few weeks prior and thinking that it doesn't seem like a story that would interest me. Fast forward to our week in Captiva, and I finished the book I took with me and didn't want to read an ebook on my phone at the pool due to sun glare. So, I picked this up and started reading it. I couldn't put it down. I loved how it delves into human emotions and interactions with a focus on the underlying question of "do we really know the people we think we know best?". For me, books are an escape from real life, but this book really gets you thinking about real life and the people in it.
