Hello October. Can you believe it’s time to wrap up September already? At least we’re finally getting some fall weather after my complaints in last Sunday’s post. And by fall weather, I mean highs of only 80 degrees. The windows are open, fresh air has once again entered my home, and I am happy.
I’m going to do the recap a little differently this month so bear with me. I read eight books in September (and actually reviewed half of them!):
- Record Collecting for Girls by Courtney E. Smith
- The Lantern by Deborah Lawrenson (audio)
- Heads You Lose by Lisa Lutz and David Hayward
- The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
- Ready Player One by Ernest Cline (audio)
- Amsterdam by Ian McEwan
- Sloppy Firsts by Meghan McCafferty
- The King’s Speech by Mark Logue (audio)
My favorite book this month was Ready Player One, by least favorite was probably Amsterdam (sorry, Ben).
In addition to the four reviews posted above, I also reviewed these books this month:
- The Fox Inheritance by Mary E. Pearson
- Deadline by Mira Grant (audio)
- Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout
- The Hunger Games Trilogy audiobooks
- One of Our Thursdays is Missing by Jasper Fforde
- Divergent by Veronica Roth
For fun, I told you all about the new fall television shows I want to watch and what I think the are the best Buffy episodes. I participated in Book Blogger Appreciation Week where I shared the new blogging friends I have made this year; participated in a blogger interview swap; and explained how blogging has changed my reading. Finally, I posted the books everyone but me has read and the books I want to reread in audio for Top Ten Tuesday.
When I do the wrap-up this way, my month looks much more productive, huh?
What was the best book you read in September?
What a great month of reading! I keep staring at the Fox Inheritance since I like the cover, but I haven’t read the first one yet!
Such a busy month! Makes my head spin when I think about it. I’ve got Ready Player One loaded on my iPod, but I just chose The Last Werewolf instead and now I’m regretting it. I also have The Lantern loaded too. Those will probably be my next listens. (Freaking LOVE this weather. this is why I live here.)
Great month. I still want to read Divergent.
I just bought Ready Player One, and am hoping that I have time to read it soon. Like Sandy, I am also listening to The Last Werewolf, and finding it very…strange. It might just be that the guy reading the audio is a little weird, but it’s not as engrossing as it might have been in print perhaps. It looks like you have had a wonderful month, what with all the very interesting reads you’ve featured here. I hope that October is also a great reading month for you!
I will trade your 80 degrees for my 40. I wasn’t ready to turn the heat on, but October hit and BAM! it was that or lose my toes to frostbite.
I’m so excited for Ready Player One! I want it to be my turn with the library copy right now. I actually had a good reading month and liked everything I read, but my favorite was probably Sea of Poppies by Amitav Ghosh.
My September favorite was The Language of Flowers. Looking forward to reading a few of your titles.
