October Reads, 2009

ReadingRoundup_dsIs it just me, or does a person’s IQ immediately drop about 20 points upon contracting the flu?  Seriously.  Last week, I was reading The Little Giant of Aberdeen County and enjoying it very much.  Then, I got the flu.  I swear I must have read the same page three or four times and still have no idea what it actually said.  So, I put it aside and re-read a couple of Suzanne Brockmann’s Troubleshooters books, instead.

  • The Women by T. C. Boyle – 4.5
  • The Mountains of Saint Francis: Discovering the Geologic Events that Shaped Our Earth by Walter Alvarez – unfinished due to extreme boredom
  • In the Company of the Courtesan by Sarah Dunant – 4.5
  • Once and Always by Judith McNaught – 3
  • Hot Pursuit by Suzanne Brockmann (reread)
  • Gone Too Far by Suzanne Brockmann (reread)

I’m still not sure if I’ve read Once and Always before.  Most of the deja vu vibe I kept getting was for the story, not the characters.

I’m almost done with the flu, or it’s almost done with me :), so I’ll continue The Little Giant where I left off later today or tomorrow.
