October was pretty crazy for me. Most of the books I read this month were text books about either history or sociology. I still managed to read some amazing fiction this month and couldn't possibly pick just one.
The Odyssey by Homer
This wasn't voluntary but I always enjoy The Odyssey anyway. This was my third time reading it.
Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier
I love, love, love this book! It's an old favorite that I go back to whenever I need some comfort. Daughter of the Forest is a retelling of one of my favorite fairy tales and the imagery is beautiful.
Thursday Next: First Among Sequels by Jasper Fforde
This is the last book in the Thursday Next series. It follows the exploits of Thursday Next, a member of the fiction policing agency, Jurisfiction which makes sure that all books continue to unfold as they should and that the fictional characters don't escape into the real world. All the books in the series are uproariously funny and I always find myself laughing out loud and then being incapable of explaining to anyone what I found so funny simply because the plots are so bizarre. Thursday Next must be read to be appreciated. And Jasper Fforde (besides being brilliant) has an awesome last name.
