books read in october

hello!!
I've read some good books this month...
I read nine books this month which takes me up to seventy books read this year... in case anyone's interested... (no? oh.)
first off was Lena Dunham's Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She's 'Learned'
I really enjoyed reading this - it was easy and fun to read, but smart and interesting too.
next was Chi's Sweet Home Volume 7 by Kanata Konami
yes, so I'm on volume 7 of these little graphic novels about a kitten. I love Chi! in this one she gets sick after eating something bad. poor little chi. I've still got another 4 volumes to go.
I read another graphic novel after Chi - Death and the Girls by Donya Todd.
it was filthy and crazy and I loved it.
the next book I read isn't pictured as I borrowed it from the library... Wringer by Andrew Smith
I've read two Andrew Smith books now and enjoyed them both - he's a bit of exciting new (to me) voice in young adult fiction I reckons. one for John Green fans.
I've started reading books by Thich Hanh Nhat which are all about mindfulness. I've read two of his books this month - The Mindfulness Survival Guide and How to Eat which I enjoyed. Oprah loves Thich, so I'm all in.
The Green Man by Kingsley Amis was our reading group book this month - it's a weird little book that has a kind of uncanny pagany feel to it. I enjoyed it even tho it was unnerving...
I've already written about Chocolates for Breakfast by Pamela Moore here, so won't go on too much about it... other than to say I enjoyed it a lot - it's absolutely my kind of book.
and my last (and least favourite) book I read in October was The Reluctant Yogi: A Quirky Guide to the Practice That Can Change Your Life by Carla McKay. It does have some interesting bits in it, but was hoping for more of a memoir rather than a rehashing of the history of yoga.
So that's it.
Have you read any of these books? 
What are you reading?
I am finally getting round to reading Landlines by Rainbow Rowell, which I'll report back on at the end of the month.
Happy Reading!

  2. Such a nice eclectic mix! I love reading books from different genres too.
    And though I've never read any Chi graphic novels, I do think he's adorable. So maybe I have to pick some up someday.

    How To Eat sounds really interesting! I think I'll have to read that at some point.

    You are always making me add stuff to my to-read pile. You know that, right? ;) I love it!
