September was a pretty good reading month, all things considered. I was really tired for most of September and preparing for my holiday, but I still managed to read. Plus, I am in Canada right now (hogging camping wi-fi as we speak) and I got some reading done here too.
Read in September
Three 4-star books and two 5-star books! And a disappointing 2-star short story to end the month…
- Love in the Time of Global Warming (Love in the Time of Global Warming, #1) by Francesca Lia Block
- The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell
- Silhouette of a Sparrow by Molly Beth Griffin
- Hotel Iris by Yoko Ogawa
- The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily M. Danforth
- Yesterday by Haruki Murakami
I can’t decide which I enjoyed more, The Bone Clocks or The Miseducation of Cameron Post. Honestly they were both amazing in their own way. But I really enjoyed the 4-stars too. However, Yesterday by Murakami was a huge disappointment, even though I usually enjoy his short stories.
No photo of shame this month. I got a few books for free, of which The Last of the Wine by Mary Renault is probably the one I am most happy about since I’ve been looking for it for a while. And I bought only two books. *pats self on shoulder*
Plans for October
OMINOUS OCTOBERRRRRR! I am quite excited about this reading event. Sadly I am participating from a distance for the first 10 days while I am still in Canada with less-than-ideal Internet conditions. But I started reading my first book for Ominous October (Audition by Ryu Murakami) and I will be doing a big blog post on October 25 (I’ll let you guess the topic!).
