Books Read in September

September was a really light reading month for me. But since I've all ready read more books than I did all of last year I was due for a light month.

Best Friends Forever by Jennifer Weiner. Rated 3.5. I think Weiner gets a bad rap for being chick lit and fluffy, but she isn't. This was a good book with some deep subject matters. It would make a good book club book because it's fairly quick and easy to read but still has some depth to it.

Master Butcher's Singing Club by Louise Erdrich. Rated 4. I read this for my face-to-face book club here at the library. My group was split between those who liked it and those who didn't. Maybe I enjoyed it more because it's set in N.D. fairly close to where I was raised and the characters were Germans like my prairie ancestors were.

Body in the Library by Agatha Christie. Rated 3. Loving Agatha Christie and Miss Marple.

Prayers for Sale by Sandra Dallas. Rated 3.5. I always enjoy Dallas' books. Great character and good plots.

Obama's Blackberry by Kasper Hauser. Rated 3. I received this in a box of books Hatchett sent to me. A HUGE box of books :) This was a funny book and took me about an hour to read.

Goldengrove by Francine Prose. I haven't finished this book yet. Book Club Girl sent me a copy. I am savoring it. The writing is lovely. Right now it is reminding me of Local News by Miriam Gershow. Prose is a new author for me and I'm happy I've discovered her.

Looks like you still had a good reading month! I've got the Sandra Dallas book waiting for me. That looks like a good one.
