What to read this October

Is there a more perfect month than October to curl up with a good book? The weather is cooling off here in Oregon, and the cold makes me want to lay in bed with a good book all day long. But the question was, what to read this October? I went perusing my local used book stores and found these beauties that I’ll be reading over the next month. Check back next month the see what I thought of them!

The Art of Racing in the Rain: A Novel

by Garth Stein

A heartwarming story about a dog and his family! The Art of Racing in the Rain is sure to be a heartwarming and tear rendering novel... Check back next month to see what my thoughts on it are!

I know without a doubt that this book is going to end with me in tears, but I’m too curious as to how a dog goes about writing a novel to let that stop me. I’m a huge animal lover, and I love reading. I plan to combine the two whenever possible!


The Alchemist

by Paulo Coelho

We all have a destiny. There is a plan for all of us... The Alchemist has been on my reading bucket list for a long time, and I'm finally checking it off! Check back next month to see my thoughts on this New York Times Bestsellers novel by Paulo Coelho.

This book is supposedly all about following your heart, and finding out where you belong in this crazy world. What a coincidence! I am always listening out for my calling in life! This book has been recommended to me many times from friends and strangers alike. It was only a matter of time before I got my hand on this beloved novel.

Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail

by Cheryl Strayed

Im so excited to finally read Wild by Cheryl Strayed this month! Check back in November to see my thoughts on this novel that was the inspiration for the 2014 movie starring Reese Witherspoon!

Sometimes the real world is too much, and you just gotta take an 1100 mile trek into the wild, you know? I feel similarly and that is what has put Wild on this month’s list. And as soon as I finish it, I’ll reward myself by finally watching the movie that is based off of this novel starring Reese Witherspoon.


I’m really excited about digging into these stories and letting you know what I thought about them next month!


What are you guys reading this month??
