October Reading List

 I am in slight shock that we are already well into the month of November; I am honestly in shock of how fast the year has gone by – I feel like it just started. It seems like October was already a year ago, but I was able to read some fabulous books last month and highly recommend all of them!

The Light Between Oceans, by M.L. Stedman

This book has been on my books to read list for the longest time, and it did not disappoint. Full disclosure, this book does have a bittersweet ending, but still worth the read!


Tom, a lighthouse keeper, and his wife, Isabel, have tried for years for a baby of their own, but unfortunately that dream never becomes a reality. After a few miscarriages and a stillbirth, Isabel hears a baby crying on the small island. She and her husband find a boat with a deceased man and a small baby girl. Isabel views the new baby as a gift from God and an answer to her prayers, but Tom who keeps meticulous records and follows the rules fights an internal battle of wheatear to report the man and infant or give into his wife’s desire. 


The Last List of Miss Judith Kratt, by Andrea Bobotis

I listened to this book on Audio, and it has an amazing narrator and a good storyline. An unexpected visit from Judith’s wayward sister helps Judith to piece together the influence of her on their small cotton town and unearth a few dark family secrets.


Rock Paper Scissors, by Alice Feeney 

Confession: I bought this book solely based on the fact that I really love the cover. If you are a fan of psychological thrillers than this book is most definitely a book for you. Rock Paper Scissors is an intricately spun web with a few unexpected twists and turns.


The Chicken Sisters, by Kj Dell’Antonia

This is another book that has been on my ‘books to read’ list for the longest time, and has actually been sitting on my nightstand for at least two months {shameful, I know}. Reese Witherspoon picked another great book to add to her book club. 


In the small town of Merinac Chicken Mimi’s and Chicken Frannie’s have been in a battle of who has the best fried Chicken. The legendary feud has attracted the attention of a reality TV cooking show. Through out the production family secrets are exposed and small feud between sisters is stirred to make for an even more interesting TV production experience. 


Christmas in Peachtree Bluff, by Kristy Woodson Harvey 

I was so excited when I learned that Kristy Woodson Harvey was working on a fourth installment for the Peachtree Bluff series. This book is simply fabulous and I cannot recommend it enough! Click here to read a more in depth review of the book. 


Apples Never Fall, by Liane Moriarty

100% recommend this book, especially for those who enjoy a bit of suspense. The four Delaney siblings and their parents are a fixture in their town, establishing themselves as a tennis family and the owners of a tennis academy. One day Joy, the mother send a text to her children informing all of them that she will be taking a trip. Once a few days go by, and no one has heard from her, concerns start to grow. Eventually two of her children report he absence to the police and an investigation is opened bringing the family into a whole new light of speculation.
