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
6 Adult/0 Children’s
6 Fiction novels
6 print/ 0 digital
Books in  series: 0
5 stars on Goodreads: 4
4 stars on Goodreads: 2
Books that qualify for AWW2018:  4
Books for B&L Book Club: 6

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.

Happy Reading!

  1. I listened to The Letter by Kathryn Hughes on audiobook, a 5* listen really held by interest for the whole book.
