Tell Me What to Read: Round 5

Once again, the month is coming to an end. Which means. . . .time to tell me what to read in November.  

It can be any genre, any age level, and have been published last week or three hundred years ago. You can pick it because it’s a book that everyone should read or because it changed your life or because it is great literature or just because it entertained you. You can DEFINITELY suggest the same book you suggested last month.

Here’s how it goes:

  1. Comment with the title of one book you think I should read (any book you want). One title only, please, lest my brain explode.
  2. I’ll select one comment at random and announce it on the blog later this week
  3. On the off-chance that I’ve already read the book you select, I’ll contact you and ask for a follow-up suggestion (make sure there is a way to contact you either by blog or email).
  4. I’ll get a copy of the book and read it by the end of November.
  5. I’ll write a review of it here. Even if I hate the book, I will not hate you.

And. . .go!

  1. I loved The Help by Kathryn Stockett…it has quickly made its way onto my mental all-time favorites list.

  2. We Were the Mulvaneys by Joyce Carol Oates. That book made me ache for days afterwards, it was so good and sad and tragic and redemptive.

  3. Ok, so it's not even a novel, it's a children's book, but our FAVORITE book this time of year is The Ugly Pumpkin by Dave Horowitz. It's Fabulous!

  4. I think I'll go with Life of Pi, by Yann Martel. I really liked it, but it made a girl in my book club want to throw it at the wall, so I'm always curious what people's reactions will be.

  5. I'm going to suggest The Final Empire, by Brandon Sanderson again.

    This was the first book of his that I read and I couldn't put it down. Since then he's become one of my favorite authors. He was chosen as the author to finish Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series, so I suppose the man knows what he's doing… 🙂

  6. It's kind of hard to recommend books to you, because you've read just about everything I have. How about the biography of Marie Antoinette by Antonia Fraiser?

  7. I'm a new follower and I really love the idea of asking your readers to help you chose a book. I would really love to do something like this someday once I get through the bulk of my TBR.

    I would recommend the Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley. It's really long, but I loved it.

    *crossing my toes, for good measure*

    "Someday she's gonna pick Poisonwood Bible, someday, someday, someday…"


  9. You blow me away.
    ALL the reading you do, and STILL asking for more!!

    I'm going with my same pick from last month:

    Cutting For Stone
    by Abraham Verghese

  10. I guarantee you've read it (since you've read everything I suggest…) but how about Daddy-Long-Legs by Jean Webster. I just reread it and remembered how delightful it is 🙂

  11. Autumn Street by Lois Lowry. My prof. said it's the author's favorite, out of ALL her books, but I just couldn't figure out what to make of it. I need another opnion!
