Oct Reads

Not a lot of books this month.  I've been too busy cross stitching I guess.

1. Tiger's Destiny by Coleen Hauck.
This is the fourth and final book in the Tiger Quest series.  Guess what?  It ends with a time loop.  What is up with these books lately?  Strangely, I was more ok with this time loop ending than previous storylines I've read.  Maybe I've been in a better mood lately.  I was not so jazzed about books 2 and 3 in this series, but I liked the finale as much as the first book.  I was please with the resolution of the curse, and the subsequent resulting love triangle between Ren, Kishan and Kelsey.  After having read this book, and seeing how the series ends, I feel I can recommend this teen romance to teens and grown ups alike.  (The Romance is neither smarmy or smutty.)

2. Cleopatra's Daughter by Michelle Moran.
I started reading this book to put me in the mood for making Blockette's Halloween costume.  I really enjoyed the storyline as I had no knowledge of  Cleopatra's daughter, Selene's, life.  I did find myself picturing some of the characters as their counterparts on HBO's series Rome, which made me laugh for some reason.  There was another series about Selene that I had planed to read, but it was more fantastical.  I enjoyed the style of this story so much that I decided not to read that one.  Instead I plan on reading more books by this author.

  1. I am not familiar with these books, but I will check them out. I'm reading Jacqueline Winspear's "Maisie Dobbs" books - there are 9 of them and most of them are award winning or best sellers! I'm on book 8! I'm going to be sad when they end!!! Think Nancy Drew grows up and moves to Europe!
