Tell Me What to Read: Round 15

Today was the first day the air has felt cool! (By which I mean 75 degrees, of course. Oh Texas, you make it so easy to love you).

Which means October is nearly here and thus I need reading material for next month. You know, for the moments when I'm not reading Janette Rallison as fast as I can.

Eat some soup or a pumpkin baked good and also, suggest something for me to read in October:

1. Comment with the title of one book you think I should read (any book you want). One title only, please, lest my brain explode.
2. I'll select one comment at random and announce it on the blog within the next week.
3. On the off-chance that I've already read the book you select, I'll contact you and ask for a follow-up suggestion (make sure there is a way to contact you either by blog or email).
4. I'll get a copy of the book and read it by the end of October.
5. I'll write a review of it here. Even if I hate the book, I will not hate you.

  6. Really and truly is it time for this? Gracious.

    How about The Dark Hills Divide by Patrick Carmen again.

  7. I've missed commenting on this one for many months. How about The Help by Kathryn Stockett. I know it is a popular one, but it is pretty good and I would be curious to read your review.

  8. East of Eden, John Steinbeck. Statistically, if I keep suggesting this, eventually I'll get chosen!

  13. Knightley Academy - It's Harry Potter without the magic. Book 1 in a trilogy. I think the author finished writing book 2 recently so the sequel is coming. It's long, awesome Steampunk Victorian Britain adventure. I read it randomly a few months ago and I want to get the word out how great it is. :)

  23. I'll go for The Help, as well. It was one of my bookclub books for this month and I haven't read it yet, so I'd be interested to see what you thought of it.

  25. I have been in a huge reading rut lately (just reading series - the Tana French series, Sophie Hannah's books, Kate Atkinson) so I have nothing really to suggest.

    Although oh! I just bought The Anthologist (which I mistook for "The Anthropologist" for some reason) and it's sitting on my nightstand. So that's my suggestion: The Anthologist.

  26. John Adams by David McCoullugh (sp)

  27. "Book of Negros"!! In the U.S, it's called "Somebody Knows My Name". It is an outstanding book by a Canadian author Lawrence Hill. If you loved reading "Roots" by Alex Haley this is a great book to pick up. It's from the viewpoint of a female slave and all that she endures. It will definitely stay with you.

  28. My pick is "I Am the Messenger" by Markus Zusak. Just listened to the audiobook and loved it!

  29. Just for kicks I'll say East of Eden, too. Merry seems pretty determined and maybe this will help her out. It's one I read in college and haven't forgotten yet. I still don't know what I think of it.

    I love this point every month because it gives me something to read by association.

  33. The Lost Quilter by Jennifer Chiaverini - about a slave woman's trevails and how she puts hidden directions in her quilt patterns for others to learn the way to freedom should they get the chance to run away.

  34. Cold Sassy Tree by Olive Ann Burns. I'm reading this, again, for a book club and would love to read another take on it.

  35. An Introduction to Ordinary Differential Equations

  36. Heard her speak yesterday and she blew me away: you should read Megan Whalen Turner's The Thief. I want to read it even though I don't typically touch high fantasy with a 10 foot pole.

  37. Not sure if you've read this, but I'm about halfway through and really enjoying it:

    Alice, I Have Been
    by Melanie Benjamin
