    2. The Oslo Conspiracy sounds really good! I'll have to check it out. And wow 22 books! I have only read 20 books in a month and that was back in April. I doubt I'll ever go above that number. I hope October treats you just as good so you can keep reading :)

    3. As always, I am in awe of the number of books you manage to read each month. Reading is your superpower! Teach me your way, O Wise One. :) Kitchens of the Great Midwest sounds so interesting. Anytime food is a focus in a book... yeah, that's always a good thing. I've read Girl by Blake Nelson but sadly remember nothing about it . According to GoodReads I read it in 2002 so it's been a while.

    7. Wow, you read a ton this past month! That's great. I hope to read more this month. September was a bit busy with vacation and a new job, so I didn't get TONS read.

    What to Read if You Love The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

    This & That – 2 Books with Strong Friendships, a Quest, and SHIPs!This and That” is a feature created by Megan @ Reading Books Likes a Bossand borrowed here with permission. Megan created this feature and I owe this post to her brilliance.  Not only should you check out her blog, generally, but her This & That recommendations are utterly perfect! Megan created this feature to showcase books that either sound similar or have similar themes, and thus I am recommending that you read the "that book" because you are a a fan of the “this book.” 
    About the Books: THE RAVEN BOYS (The Raven Cycle #1) by Maggie Stiefvater Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past.

Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble.

    I love this trope, sub-genre, setting: My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend

    I Love This Trope, Sub-Genre, Setting is a new feature on my blog in which I discuss a trope, sub-genre or setting that I love and tell you about books that are shining examples of said trope, sub-genre or setting.  Feel free to play along and please let me know about your favorite books in this realm and whether you like this trope, sub-genre and/or setting as much as I do! Today I am spotlighting the trope of: My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend, which I would define as any book where the heroine either has a crush on or falls for her brother's best friend or her best friend's brother.

    I have to confess that I love this trope in nearly all of its iterations!  I have a younger brother so I never got to crush on any of his friends but it's fun reading about that and it's equally as fun as reading about falling for your best friend's brother -- instant sisters!  I know there are a ton of books that I'm missing/haven't read so please let m…
