It’s another “monthly” wrap-up covering two months, as I didn’t really read enough during September to warrant the effort of writing a post. October improved, even as I was madly scrabbling to finish my last book to make it count for this month.

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:
I didn’t post any bookish photos in September, so have a couple from October:
You can see all my bookish photos (plus some RL as well) on my Instagram.
Physical book: Harlequin’s Riddle by Rachel Nightingale. I have to admit this hasn’t really grabbed me, but I’m about two thirds of the way through and I plan to finish it.
Ebook: Nothing on the go at the moment.
Audio book: Doing Time by Jodi Taylor… i have to admit I’m less than an hour in and I already have a few issues with the writing style, but I’m giving it a bit more of a chance before I write it off.
PLANNING TO READ NEXT:
Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta has been on my monthly TBRs for a while now but this is the month it definitely gets read! Promise!
What are you reading? 🙂
