Other posts from this month:

This is one of the slowest reading months I’ve had in ages and I don’t even know why.  I mean, I think part of it is because a lot of the books I’m currently reading are 500+ page beasts, but still… I think 5 books is the fewest books I’ve read in a month since I started blogging.  And I haven’t even finished one of them, technically!  Work has been stressful and life has been stressful, but I’m really dissatisfied with how little I have been reading lately, so hopefully next month will be an improvement.

Life updates:

I just had to scroll through my Twitter to make sure there were no life updates I was forgetting about.  It’s true, nothing at all happened in the last month aside from the aforementioned stressful things.  I watched a lot of Love Island.

Currently reading:

 

Know My Name by Chanel Miller, Royal Assassin by Robin Hobb, Cassandra by Christa Wolf, The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater, Villette by Charlotte Bronte.  I will finish all of these books in November, so help me god.

What was the best book you read in September?  Comment and let me know!

  1. I think 5 books is a respectable amount for a month. Before blogging I used to read 30ish books per year so 5 in a month sounds great to me! Glad to see you liked Find Me! Also I’m curious about your thoughts on the Brontë and Hobb books!

    • Perspective is SO key here. Pre-blogging my reading was anywhere between 5 and 30 books a year, but now that I know I can easily hit 100 I’m like ‘ugh, only 5 last month?!’ As if a book a week isn’t actually a massive amount of reading!

      Anyway I’m really really enjoying both the Bronte and the Hobb, hopefully I’ll finish them both by the end of November!

      • I know, I do the same. If I don’t finish 2 books per week it feels like a slow reading week and I wonder if I’m in a slump.

    • What is up with that?! October seems like an objectively long month, too…

      Oooh I’m so glad you recommend that. I had an ARC at one point but I think I let the link expire. It sounded brilliant though, but then I kind of forgot about it – will put a hold on it on Overdrive asap!
