Books Read in September

I'm running a little late on this after a busy week and a weekend away.  September was a good reading month, in part because it was a rotten health month.  A nasty virus and bronchitis left me in bed for over a week...with nothing to do but read!  I read six books for kids or teens and three grown-up novels:
  • Ruined, a teen ghost story set in New Orleans.
  • Mockingjay, the fabulous end to the amazing teen/YA trilogy that began with The Hunger Games - highly recommended for teens and adults alike!
  • George Washington's Socks, a time travel adventure novel for middle-grade kids.
  • The Graveyard Book, Neil Gaiman's award-winning story of a boy who grows up in a graveyard, filled with his trademark wit and whimsy.
  • Suspect, an original teen mystery
  • The Limit, a fast-paced middle-grade techno-thriller set in the near future
  • The 19th Wife, a fascinating historical novel mixed with a modern-day murder mystery
  • The Shipping News, an award-winning novel set in Newfoundland and populated by quirky characters.
  • A Soft Place to Land, a novel about the complex and changing relationship between two sisters who lost their parents.
Hope you had a good reading month, too!
