My Favorite Books from October 2017


I didn’t read as much as normal this month – but that’s not surprising since we had a relaxing two week Fall Break.  That meant most of my free time was spent hanging out with friends and family.  Definitely more of a priority than reading!  Plus we went out of town for a soccer tournament (so much fun) and a wonderful family vacation with lots of hiking, game playing and just enjoying life!

My favorites for the month:

Oh my goodness this is a fun book.  Alice gets sent to California by her boss to assist an author with creating her new book.  When she arrives she finds herself spending most of her time caring for Frank, the author’s son.  Frank is quite an unusual child.  He prefers old movies, dressing the part of characters in them, and definitely marches to his own tune.  By the end of the book, you’ll fall in love with Frank and the quirky cast of characters that support him.  My rating 4.5 out of 5.


Totally different genre – this thriller kept me guessing until the end.  I was pretty sure I knew what was going on, but never 100%.  On a stormy night, Cass sees a woman sitting in her car in the woods.  She doesn’t stop, thinking it might be a trap, but then the next day when the woman is found dead, she begins a downward sprial of guilt.  Meanwhile, the anxiety she feels seems to be unraveling her entire life.  But is it just anxiety?  Don’t read ahead and you’ll enjoy this book more.  My rating 4.5 out of 5.

The other books I really enjoyed this month were: Little Fires Everywhere, IT’S ALL IN MY HEAD: How to Survive a Brain Tumour and Find Peace of Mind,Watch Me Disappear: A Novel and Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda

So what great books have you read this year?  I’m running to the library today to pick up a new stack, so super excited to start something new!

Looking for time in your life to do the things you love?  Maybe more reading?  When I work with my clients, we start by identifying what is important to them, dream about what they’d like their life to look like, and then put a plan in place to get there – and “me time” is always a part of that process.  Sound like what you need?  Work with me and I’ll help you create a life you love.
