On My Bookshelf [september]

Here is my list of books read in September:

Before I Go To Sleep by S.j. Watson
I first heard of this book when I saw a write up of the new movie that is coming out staring Nicole Kidman. I found the subject matter interesting and wanted a quick easy read. I actually really liked this book although I did figure out the end well before the last chapter.
3 stars | Adult Fiction

Dawn: A Novel by Elie Wiesel
I can't say enough about Elie Wiesel! This novella is just 80 pages long but every single word moved me. It's his first work of fiction and although the subject matter may be hard for some to read, I highly recommend it.
5 stars | Adult Fiction

September was a slow month for my bookshelf. I've also been reading The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith (aka J.K. Rowling). It's a fairly large hardcover and not a book that I want to carry around with me in my purse. Unless I can find some time to dedicate to this book I'm going to be in for the long haul. Next on my to-read list: The Truth Is A Cave In The Black Mountains by Neil Gaiman.

I'd love to hear what you're reading right now, or if you have a great suggestion I'd love to hear that too!

Knitting Inspiration

After this post, I started to really crush on all the amazing knits on the new Outlander series. I won't talk too much about the show but I'm really starting to like it. I've read the 1st 4 books (I think the series has about 8? now) and while I devoured the 1st book the next few lost my interest. I'm hoping the show is a bit better. I'm still not sure about Claire's voice overs though.

The knits however.... oh how I love all the knits. And not just Claire's below but the men have some really great fingerless gloves, berets, and throws. These are really making me want to knit up a large shawl this winter.
