October Book List

Robopocalypse by Daniel H. Wilson (Kindle app)
The Secret Life by (Kindle app)
Fly Away Home by Jennifer Weiner (paperback-gift from Amy!!)

Recommended: I had such high hopes for Robopocalypse. The sample I downloaded from Amazon was awesome! The premise of the story is right up my alley: a computer mind takes over the world and begins exterminating humans! Wow! But a lot of it got bogged down in tech and military jargon, and the big confrontation at the end was just quiet. But it was still a cool book. Steven Spielberg is making a movie based on it in the next couple of years. I'm interested to see who they cast, as there was an amazing racial/ethnic diversity in the book.

Jennifer Weiner is still one of my favourite authors. She writes good characters, and a nice emotional story. This was another nice book from her.

Not recommended: None. The Secret Life is a fairly simple "romance" - which I'm not totally in to - but it was still okay.

Re-Read: None this month. Mary Shelley's Frankenstein has been sitting beside my bed for weeks now, but I haven't made it much past the first chapter or so.

I definitely fell behind this month. I've been so busy with other things, that I just haven't had the energy to do any reading.

Until Next Month...
