Not the most prolific reading month for me.  We were on Fall Break for two weeks, which really threw me off my routine, so I Cannolithink that was the biggest reason.  A week of vacation for me (which was awesome) and then another week with the kids home while I was attempting to keep up with work.  We also got ANOTHER new pet!  A sweet little kitten named Cannoli.  After getting a puppy, a kitten is a very simple addition – our puppy Bernie is STILL more work than the new guy!  Some day he will settle down . . .

On to the books.  HERE is everything I read this month, and below are my favorites:

FICTION

What a lovely book.  Although at first Ove seems very unlikeable, by the end of the book I just fell in love with him.  And I have to say I was fighting the tears when the book was finished.  A great reminder to reach out to others and have compassion – we don’t always know why people act the way they do, and a little tenacity and understanding can change multiple lives.  My rating 4.5 out of 5.

Since it’s been twenty plus years since I read this classic, I thought it was time to enjoy it again.  I’m pleased to say I loved it so much more this time around (probably because I chose to read it versus it being assigned).  Now I feel ready to read Go Set a Watchman: A NovelMy rating 4.5 out of 5.

NON-FICTION

As one of the two books I reviewed in-depth this month,  I found so many useful tips and exercises in this book.  Much of the book was full of ideas I already use with my coaching clients, but it was a good reminder to implement them myself!  For more of my thoughts, check out this post and this postMy rating 4 out of 5.
