See ya, September! Feels like I barely registered your existence which is weird, because we did things in September. It was my youngest son’s 7th birthday and my mother was here for a week to spend it with him and we did plenty of thing while she was here, including a trip to the zoo, where she’s never been before. It’s also been school holidays the past week but that’s been a bit of a bust so far unfortunately because my husband has worked 6 days of the past 8 or 9. I also have to fill the rest of the time with boring things like dental appointments, eye appointments and haircuts before the boys go back to school.

Still managed 19 books for September which I’m really happy with because I didn’t read much at all when my mum was here. It was a pretty good reading month – 3 books were 5-star reads for me and I had a bunch of 4s too. Lots of keepers.

The October arrivals were steady and this is going to be a big month……

Look at all the goodness!

And apart from these, I also have two purchases I made recently that I really want to read – Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty and Lethal White by ‘Robert Galbraith’. Plus I once again decided to try and read the Man Booker shortlist (seriously, why do I do this?) and so I requested the lot from my library. Three of the titles have come in – The Long Take by Robin Robertson, Washington Black by Esi Edugyan and Milkman by Anna Burns. I don’t know when the winner is announced but guaranteed it’ll be before I probably read any of them! I don’t know anything about them, I just decided on a whim one day to request them all. We’ll see how that goes!

Hope you all had a fantastic reading month of September. If you’ve read anything from my October pile (or the Man Booker shortlist, lol) then please let me know!

    Why do we make ourselves do things that we know in our hearts we probably won’t enjoy? Namely the Booker Prize entries. Tried several attempts years ago & realized never again, these books just aren’t for me. Hmmmmm is that a reflection of my poor reading choices or in fact I know my genres & enjoyment them. Good luck with your attempt. I wait in anticipation.

    • My problem is that I trick myself into thinking that this is something I want to do haha. I don’t know why because it almost never works out for me. I just like the idea of reading shortlists, much better in theory than actual reality. I have a few here to try, see how I go with them!
