Long weekend means that I’m a little behind on my wrap-up this month as well but I have been so focused on trying to finalise October book lists that I figure it’s not so bad. I’m also not really that late all things considered.
September was looking like it might be a good reading month but then life happened and it turned out to be pretty ordinary. I’m hoping that October plays out a little better, though I won’t be holding my breath.
As always, thanks go to Bree at 1girl2manybooks for the original inspiration to start writing wrap-ups, I do like looking at it all together. Some months don’t look nearly as good as others but I need to celebrate what I can do rather than pressure myself about what I can’t.
September saw only 6 books read but that isn’t any worse than August when one of them was Sea Life.
Total Books I read in August: 6
6 Female authors/ 0 Male author

I loved all of the books that I read in September and they all stand out to me for different reasons, picking a favourite is tricky. I think maybe The Ones You Trust because it was so twisty, and twisted really. Certainly made me wonder why anyone wants to be a celebrity. The Lost Pearl is also a fave because there was so much to love with all the different themes.
The Psychology of Time Travel was an interesting look at the world of time travel and included a diverse range of characters. Vox was scary, thought-provoking and disturbing.
Sisters and Brothers was an interesting look at family in all its shapes and sizes. Dressing the Dearloves was a generational family saga with a fashion focus that was captivating.
All in all an amazing month of reading and I am all set to do it all again in October. This is what we have to look forward to:
On that note I’m going to sign off and see if I can’t get the lists for October finalised so I can review and pick a new book.
What did you read and love in September?
My blurb went missing… so now I have to bring you a new one. One that is a little broader too.
I devour books, vampires and supernatural creatures are my genre of choice but over the past couple of years I have broadened my horizons considerably.
I inhale music, hair metal that satisfies my inner bogan is where my musical passion lies, but again I’ve been exposed to lots of different music I wouldn’t normally listen to and have broadened those horizons also.
In a nutshell – I love to write! I love interacting with a diverse range of artists to bring you interviews.
Perhaps we were perfect before – I LOVE WORDS! Reading, writing, speaking, listening – if it’s got words I’m there!
