September was one of those months where I felt like I hadn’t read that much, and that read was a struggle, but actually I finished six books, which is a little above my average. The readathon I’ve signed up for in October has me aiming for 13, but six to nine is my usual.
PAST MONTH’S READING:
- Geekerella by Ashley Poston (YA contemporary/retelling – 4 stars – review) (read August, reviewed September)
- The Court of Miracles (YA historical fantasy/retelling – 3 stars – review) (read August, reviewed September)

I have a YouTube channel where I promote Australian books using the hashtag #AusReads, and also indulge my compulsion for signing up to readathons. Here are the latest videos:
FAVOURITE BOOKISH PHOTO:
As far as bookish photos go, this is not one of my best, but it’s the best of the ones I posted this month. Featured is a pile of new books I picked up, which had been recommended to me as ones to read if I want to get into horror (which I do) but am also a wimp (which I am).
You can see all my bookish photos (plus some RL as well) on my Instagram.
Physical book: And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie. Starting off Whodunitathon with an actual whodunit.
Ebook: Return of the Dwarf King by Charley Case, Martha Carr and Michael Anderle. I bought this on a whim after seeing it somewhere and while it’s not what I expected, I’m giving it chance to get me hooked.
Audio book: I bought the WhisperSync audio companion for Return of the Dwarf King, which means I can swap between audio and ebook without losing my place.
PLANNING TO READ NEXT:
The Final Girl Support Group by Grady Hendrix was recommended to me as a horror book that someone wimpy could still be into. I’ve got pretty high expectations so I hope it lives up to them!
What are you reading? 🙂
