September, where did you go? Why did I spend so much of you reading a book that I didn’t even like? These are questions I am unlikely to get an answer to, since generally months don’t talk back. Oh, well.
In September, I read and reviewed:
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare – 2.5 stars
The Emperor’s Edge by Lindsay Buroker – 4.5 stars
The Miracle at Speedy Motors by Alexander McCall Smith – 3 stars
The Night Strangers by Chris Bohjalian – 1 star (review coming on Tuesday)
The Night Strangers counts for my R.I.P. challenge, so only three books left to read for that by the end of October. The Miracle at Speedy Motors counts for my Mount TBR. challenge, as I’ve had it (partially finished) on my shelf for ages and finally took it down and finished it. And The Emperor’s Edge counts for my Why Buy the Cow? challenge, as I got it for free. Progress, yay!
I also wrote my first guest post in September, which was a lot of fun. The Best & Worst of Kate Atkinson was posted over at At Home With Books. Thanks to Alyce for giving me the opportunity to write for her series.
I’m looking forward to October, to more R.I.P. reading (and viewing!) and to Roof Beam Reader’s The Literary Others: A LGBT Reading Event (more on that tomorrow).
Hope you all had a September full of excellent reading and that October holds more of the same.
