What's on My Nightstand: October

I had a really hard time this month remembering what I read...I knew I read Kitchen Confidential, but for the life of me, I couldn't remember what else I read. I picked up and put down a ton of books, trying to find something that would really hook me. I've got some great reads planned for this month, and I'm hoping I can really get through them. I'm disappointed that I have read so few books lately!

What I read this month:
1. Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain
2. The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown
3. Christmas Cookies by Lisa Zwirk
5. The Joy of Cookies by Sharon Tyler Herbst
6. Perfect Light Desserts by Nick Malgieri

What I plan to read next month:
1. A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving - I'm reading this now, but I'm thinking I may have to put it down for a while. I am enjoying it, but I'm having a hard time getting through it.
2. Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult - This is our December book club selection, and I need to re-read it so I can pass it around to my friends in book club
3. The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold
4. The Deep End of the Ocean by Jacqueline Mitchard
5. The Wednesday Sisters by Meg Waite Clayton

BTW, if you know of a good book that I positively ought to read, please let me know!! I'm desperate for book recommendations, because ever since I read "The Help," I'm starting to feel like it's possible that I now have too-high-expectations for other books, because I don't know that anything else can hold a candle to that book. So, if you know of a book that's as good or better, share it with me!!! I beg of you! With all this cabin fever, reading (and cooking/baking) is the only thing keeping me sane!!

"Kitchen Confidential" was a hoot of a read! "Deep End of the Ocean" terrified me, but kept me glued to the page. I've got my list of possible candidates of "Must Read Book of 2010" in the left sidebar of my blog if you need suggestions!

I just read Daisy Chain and A Slow Burn by Mary DeMuth and they were excellent! I also recommend The Diary by Eileen Goudge and anything by Rachel Hauck.

I just finished reading THe Sacred Cipher which was a lot of fun.

YOur list definitely looks intriguing. I've seen the book titles around but haven't delved into any of them.

Have fun and thanks for linking up!

I loved 19 Minutes -- I recently listened to the audiobook. But yes, The Help makes it hard to follow!

I have to get to The Help. I've read such great things. I agree with Carrie The Sacred Cipher was good.

I have not read The Help yet, so thanks for pointing it out to me! It looks like a great read :)

BTW, I'm a follower, but for some reason your feed doesn't show up in my dashboard. It says they can't find your feed. Do you have any ideas about why this is?
