Past Month’s Reading:
After a couple of dismal months in July and August, September was a bit of a return to regular reading habits. For the most part. I finished six books, have reviewed three and have the review for a fourth scheduled. That being said, not many of them were on my current TBR:
The other things I read and reviewed were:
- Miss Muriel Matters by Rupert Wrainwright (biography – 3.5 stars- not reviewed)
- A Semi-Definitive List of Worst Nightmares by Krystal Sutherland (YA magical realism – 4 stars – review)
- The Disappearance of Ember Crow by Ambelin Kwaymullina (YA dystopian – 3 stars – review)
- Frogkisser! by Garth Nix (middle-grade fantasy – 2.5 stars – review to come)
- A Dangerous Language by Sulari Gentill (historical fiction – 3 stars – review)
- Life is Like a Musical by Tim Federle (memoir/self-help – 4 stars – review)
My hope is at the end of October, there will be far more ticks on that graphic than there are now. There will be at least two more.
Ebook: The Beautiful Ones by Silvia Moreno-Garcia. I’m currently at 15%. I think Nina is a total sweetheart, and I’m looking foward to seeing how the romance plays out, since her love interest has some dubious motives and quite a lot to hide.
Audio book: The Asylum by Johan Theorin. Currently at 27%. The protagonist seems naive but there have been some genuinely creepy moments and I think the last chapter was the catalyst for things to really start happening.
Planning to read next:
I have actually read the first chapter or two of The End of Mr Y by Scarlett Thomas (I had left my Kindle at work) and I am very interested, so I will continue with that next. I have The Foretelling of Georgie Spider (The Tribe #3) by Ambelin Kwaymullina out from the library, so I definitely want to read that and finish up the series (it’s nice to actually complete a series). I also want to read Blood Guilt by Lindy Cameron, to ensure that I complete my personal diversity challenge for the Australian Women Writers Challenge. After that, it will depend what mood I am in!
