Yeehaw! The Round-Up: September 2014

How quick did September go? There is now less than three months until Christmas people!

I did think I would struggle with finding the time to read this month, what with going back to work and my granddaddy coming to visit. However, I did manage to get through more than I thought would. Go team me!

The ones that I read this month are:

Boy21 by Matthew Quick

Chelsea Bird by Virginia Ironside

The History of Rock ‘n’ Roll in Ten Songs by Marcus Greil

These Days Are Ours by Michelle Haimoff

An Abundance of Katherines by John Green

The Wedding Speech by Isabelle Broom

Station Eleven by Emily St John Mandel

Playing With Matches by Suri Rosen

My Other Ex: Women’s True Stories of Losing and Leaving Friends by Jessica Smock, Stephanie Sprenger, and Galit Breen

Poppy Does Paris by Nicola Doherty

Twitter Girl by Nic Tatano

Who is Tom Ditto? by Danny Wallace

Michael Jackson’s Dangerous by Susan Fast

Lily Does LA by Nichola Doherty

Whilst I got through quite a few of my September NetGalley review books there thirteen books that have now been added to my back log….frick!

I did manage to introduce a new feature this month. September saw the debut of Short Story Saturday. This has allowed me to clear a few short stories from my Kindle, free up some much needed space on it and also to have a quick read of something when I don’t have much time. Triple Win!

Now, if we thought last month’s review list was epic then wait until you see all the books due for review in October. It is overwhelming. Alas, I clicked on NetGalley therefore I must pay the price. Books cost, and right here is where I start paying in sweat…from my fingers…with all the review typing – you know, to paraphrase a line from 80s movie musical Fame!
