October 2021 Wrap-Up

So…we’re a week into November and I’m just getting this wrap up out. Running late this month due to a very busy October with my kids. How did we manage everything pre-COVID?? Love that so many things are ramping back up, but my time management skills do not seem to be what they once were. So here’s a quick wrap up and fingers crossed I do better with time management in November. 😉

October Reads

  • All the Missing Girls by Megan Miranda. 5 Stairs. I wasn’t sure how this was going to work – a woman goes missing and then we learn the story in reverse order from Day 15 to Day 1. Great format! Loved the mystery and the characters.
  • The Madness of Crowds by Louise Penny. 5 Stairs. The latest Inspector Gamache novel did not disappoint. We find ourselves back in the lovely village of Three Pines for this multi-layered mystery.
  • A Good Girls Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson. 4 Stairs. An interesting YA cold case mystery with a true crime feel.
  • The Santa Suit by Mary Kay Andrews. 4 Stairs. Curl up with a hot cocoa and your favorite blanket and get lost in the magic of Christmas for a few hours.
  • The Matzah Ball by Jean Meltzer. 3 Stairs. This was a cute RomCom, I appreciated that the main character suffers from a chronic illness and the story explores that.
  • The Guest List by Lucy Foley. 3 Stairs. I wanted to love this one, but I didn’t. It wasn’t bad – it’s a good domestic noir suspense read.
  • Death in the Clouds by Agatha Christie. 2.5 Stairs. A classic locked room mystery. I had high hopes, but I found it difficult to keep my attention.

Final Thoughts

I am surprised, I didn’t read any nonfiction or memoirs in October! I usually get at least one non-fiction in. What did you read for our first full month of fall? What are your reading plans for November? What should I read? (I’ve already started a few great books!) Sound off in the comments below and enjoy your November reading!

    • The Jackson book was really fun to read! The Foley book isn’t bad. But…I picked it up to start reading in Jan or Feb if that tells you anything. Just didn’t keep my interest. I also recently read The Guilt Trip, which was a similar theme of a destination wedding so that may have contributed to my blah feeling. I did like the ending when I finally got to it, it was twisty.


Sit down and share a cuppa with me. Let's discuss.
