It is the end of September. Where has this year gone? I have no idea.
I am back at work now (boo hiss) and I genuinely didn’t think I would manage to read that many books but I have done okay it seems. I read 17 in total so I am quite chuffed with that especially as I had a manic week towards the end of the month. So go me!
Without further ado, I read the following books:
- My Purple Scented Novel by Ian McEwan (eBook)
- Diversify by June Sarpong (ebook)
- I Was Saved by the Bell by Peter Engel (NetGalley Review Copy)
- The 7 ½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton (NetGalley Review Copy)
- Posted by John David Anderson (Paperback)
- A Series of Unfortunate Events: A Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket (eBook)
- Roots of the Revival by Rachel Claire Donaldson and Richard D Cohen (NetGalley Review Copy)
- 52 Things to Do on the Loo by Hugh Jansburn (eBook)
- That’s Not What Happened by Kody Keplinger (Paperback)
- Derby Shorts by Jane Bradley (eBook)
- Love Literary Style by Karen Gillespie (NetGalley Review Copy)
- Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince by JK Rowling (Paperback – Re-read)
- What Girls Are Made Of by Elana K Arnold (Paperback)
- Shockaholic by Carrie Fisher (eBook)
- Dear Evan Hansen by Val Emmich (NetGalley Review Copy)
- Hocus Pocus in Focus by Aaron Wallace (eBook)
- Twin Evils? by Olga Nunez Miret (eBook)
My favourite books of the month were Diversify (seriously, everyone needs to read this book) and Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. I shed tears.
In other news, I have managed to increase my NetGalley percentage to 42%. I am working my socks off to get it up to 43% by the end of the year. I think I have said this before but it takes 9 books for me to go up 1% and I have at least 10 NetGalley books that I have planned to read and review for the second half of November not to mention the Christmas stories for December so fingers crossed I can do this.
Speaking of books, my book buying ban is falling apart at the seams. I have bought far too many. Plus it was my birthday this month so I got quite a few for presents. I will continue to work my way through them and hopefully the “to be read” pile will decrease.
Anywho, hope you all have an amazing October (it is my favourite month of the year).
Much book shaped love,
