Congratulations to Gemma, our shelf picker for the month of November. The shelf that struck her fancy was Life Changers.

What books on the list will you read for November, and do you agree that they are life changing books? What books that you have read would you consider life changing books?

Wow! A lot of books from this shelf are on my scattered shelves.

June - Thirteen Reasons Why

July - The Bell Jar, The Cider House Rules, and The Hobbit

August - Paper Towns and A Tree Grows in Brooklyn

September - Love Letters to the Dead and Never Let Me Go

October - A Thousand Splendid Suns, The Fault in Our Stars, and Anne of Green Gables

November - Girl, Interrupted, The Great Gatsby, and Sarah's Key

I will start with Paper Towns, as I just checked it out of the library for another challenge.

I'll start with books that will help my June and September scattershelves. Those are the months I'm closest to completing.

Catcher in the Rye
A Tale for the Time Being

And then maybe Paper Towns or Four.

D I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings
Love Letters to the Dead
The Giving Tree
November is going to be crazy busy for me. This will be a challenge to be sure.

There are some great books on this shelf, right? And it is always a bonus when they fit Scattershelves for those of you who play.

I will probably only be able to fit in one, but I think I will go for:

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian
The Awakening

Both also on my Scattershelves so that will be my goal this coming month! :-)
