The Top Five for October

Sorry that this is coming so late!

The Top Five Books of October (according to Sookie)



The City of Ember By Jeanne DuPrau

Ember is a very exciting book about a city built underground that is undergoing hard times because of their shortages of food and light. This is a great book for someone of any age.





The Red Tent By Anita Diamont


The Red Tent is an Adult book written about the teenage Dinah of the Bible. I love this story because of how real the characters feel. Perhaps ages 13 and up.







The Constant Princess By Philippa Gregory

The Constant Princess was delightful and interesting. More about it can be found on my review. Around 15 and up.









The Naming By Alison Craggon

Alisom Craggon spins a beautiful story about Maerad and her friends and their adventures. LOTR fans will appreciate this one. Any age.




A Tale of Two Cities By Charles Dickens

I LOVE this book. It has everything one could ever need from a book in it-Historical Truth, Biblical Truth, characters that you care about (or hate passionately), adventure, Paris, London, and many other things. The only downside is that it's a bit difficult to read. I suggest that you still read it though-even if you have to read the spark notes along side, because it's definitely worth it. Especially the last five pages. And the last sentence. Ages 13 or 14 and up.

I have been meaning to read A TALE OF TWO CITIES for so long!! Thanks for the reminder. ;)

I enjoyed CITY OF EMBER as well.

THE RED TENT sounds very intriguing...

Yes, it was very good. Seriously, after you read it-the characters stay with you.
Especially Dinah's four mothers and her father, Jacob.
And what's even cooler-since these are people from the Bible-we'll get to meet them some day!

different ways to earn money... I did find this though...
a place where you can make some nice extra cash secret shopping.
I made over $900 last month having fun!
