SEPTEMBER TOTAL: 6
YEARLY TOTAL: 97
I think this is the least amount of books I’ve read in a month since I started blogging. But, in my defense, September was nuts. I was in NYC over Labor Day weekend (which was fun; I saw Sleep No More again and went to the U.S. Open), I spent a week in Connecticut for work, and I had friends visiting me on two different weekends. So, the fact that I finished anything at all is kind of miraculous.
Currently reading: Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy (I think I am FINALLY going to finish it this month for #Victober), The Line That Held Us by David Joy, The Whole Story and Other Stories by Ali Smith, The Overstory by Richard Powers, and The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater. Right now I’m trying to power through The Overstory since it’s due back to the library in less than a week and I’m only halfway through this 500 page beast. After I finish it I’ll focus on finishing up all the other books I’ve been reading for ages, and then I can also finish up my Man Bookering with Washington Black and The Long Take. Yay!
What was the best book you read in September? Comment and let me know!
