Wow, how’d we get to November already? That’s sort of crazy. I could have sworn it was just January like, a day ago. Everyone says that, though. But this year is flying by. Thank goodness!
I haven’t done a Wrap Up in a long while because I’ve been reading so few books it’s be tragic. But I’m hoping to pick up the pace again in November! And I think I should be able to, since my cyclical insomnia seems to be back! (Does anyone else get that? I go a few months where I can barely sleep and I end up with two or three hours at best – and then I go a few months where I’m in bed by 9:00 pm every night.) But as for October here’s my sad little list:
The Girl on the Train (Paula Hawkins)
-I technically started this in September and it took an embarrassing amount of time for me to finish it-
Rating: 3 Stars
Recommendation: I’m sure everyone’s read this one by now
Overall: I found it pretty interesting, although the main character was a little annoying. I don’t like books where the MC sits in pitty pool and I kind of felt like she was at certain times. But the overall concept was good and well executed.

Cilka’s Journey (Heather Morris)
Rating: 4 Stars
Genre: Part Non-Fiction – Part Fiction
Recommendation: Pick it up and prepare to cry
Overall: This book was just beautiful. I highly recommend it, even though it’ll break your heart. Focus on the strength Cilka has instead of the tragedy of her circumstances and you can walk out of this book feeling powerful (if she could get through that – you can get through almost anything!)

Where She Went (Gayle Forman)
Rating: 2 Stars
Genre: YA/New Adult Fiction
Recommendation: Meh, if you read the first book (If I Stay) you might as well finish
Overall: It was cute but also kind of corny. But in a cute way that didn’t make you want to barf. It was one of those quick reads and a nice palate cleanser!
