  1. Wow! You had a great month! I'm eyeing The Language of Sisters. Enjoy November!

    1. Thanks Laurel-Rain. I love Cathy Lamb books, they just so appeal to me.

  2. Fantastic how you organized your post.

    Loved Flight Patterns...Damaged looks good.

    You definitely read a lot of books.

    I can't believe tomorrow/today is November. Wow!!

    HUGS, and thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks Elizabeth, I know I have been wanting to read Flight Patterns since you all started posting about it so was happy to get to it.

  3. You had a great month Kathryn! I loved It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover - and that was the first book I had read by her, I want to go back and read more of her books :) I also need to read more of Sarah Jio's books - I've only read a few of hers.

    Hope you have a great November!!!

    1. Yes will read Colleen Hoover again too. The power of bloggers brought me to Sarah Jio and I enjoy her as well!!

  4. Looks like you had a great month. Enjoy Nov.

    1. Thanks Pat, hopefully some good books in my future and yours.

  5. Another awesome month! I see many books I have on my wish list! Happy November!

    1. Thank you Freda and I hope your November reading is the best.

  6. congrats, impressive! I have not read any you read. I have read a book by Alice Hoffman, her very first I think, but not this one. Emma at Words and Peace and France Book Tours

    1. No match up here but I did find two on your list I had read which I was pretty happy to note!

  7. Nice, Kathryn! I read and enjoyed Faithful, but that's it from your list, though I've read and enjoyed in the past Cathy Lamb, Catherine Ryan Hyde, Nicholas Sparks, Lisa Kleypas, Nora Roberts and Catherine Anderson... so I'm open to any and all suggestions and will jot your choices down.

    Glad you had a great month reading, and look forward to what you're reading this coming month.

    1. Rita thanks for visiting and wow you have read many of the above authors. Nicholas Sparks and Catherine Ryan Hyde are new to me, and Catherine Anderson and Cathy Lamb are real comfort reads for me and well.... Nora Roberts is ..... Nora Roberts! Hope you enjoy your November reads.

  8. Yikes, October is over already. The days go by so fast. So glad you rated A Promise of Stars a 5 as I took a chance and picked up the book. I look forward to reading it in November. Gotta go and request Always. Have a great November of reading. Thanks for hosting the Month in Revies.

  9. How did October fly by so quick! Yikes! Looks like you had a successful reading month Kathryn Thanks for sharing!!

  10. Small Great Things looks wonderful! You had an incredible month of reading and I hope November is the same.

  11. Nineteen books is incredible. It seems that everyone is reading Colleen Hoover lately. Hope you have a fantastic November!

  12. One question only:
    How do you do it?

    1. Rae, being retired helps! Always loved reading and even when I worked I have to say I pretty much read where and whenever I could.
