october books

Not too many books for October.  I’ve spent a lot of time rewatching West Wing episodes.  Hot dang I love that show.  Anyone else??

Last month’s books hit a nice range of excellent, average, and poor.  Win some and lose some.

  • The Midwife’s Confession by Diane Chamberlain

Grade: B.  Reads fast and totally sucks you in, but drama drama drama!  A great book for a plane (I read it on the way to Tucson) because it’s an easy read and engrossing.

  • Winning Balance by Shawn Johnson

Grade: D.  I have a love for all things gymnastics, but the best part of this book was the couple pages of color photos in the middle.  The writing wasn’t terrible but Shawn came across pretty immature and, at times, a little arrogant.  Better just stick to Youtube gymnastics videos…

  • Kisses from Katie by Katie Davis

Grade: A+.  Amazing book.  Really well written, fascinating, inspiring.  The kind of book that is both heart-wrenching and also sets you straight.  I highly recommend.

  1. Kim! Speaking of gymnastic books, have you read Dominic Moceanu’s “Off Balance”? It’s been on my list, but I haven’t gotten around to it. I’ve heard good things, though!

    1. I have read that one! It’s better than Shawn’s by a lot. At the end you feel like maybe she told a little biased story, but it’s her autobiography, so I guess she can do that. 🙂 It was a much better book though. Worth checking out for fun!
