Bookish Update: September

bookish updates sep 2013

This month was good for reading but very bad for blogging! I’m so behind on reviews, but I’m hoping to catch up soon. Meanwhile, here are my stats for September:

Currently reading: Maggie Stiefvater’s The Dream Thieves and James Boswell’s Life of Samuel Johnson

Books read in September:

  1. Luis Fernando Verissimo, The Club of Angels
  2. Rhys Bowen, Royal Blood
  3. Mary Stewart, The Hollow Hills
  4. Isaac Asimov, A Whiff of Death
  5. Seanan McGuire, Chimes at Midnight
  6. Amy Patricia Meade, Million Dollar Baby
  7. Rainbow Rowell, Fangirl

Favorite book of the month: I really enjoyed most of my reads for this month, but I have to say Fangirl. Loved the swoonworthy romance, college setting, and flat-out great writing.

Least favorite book of the month: Million Dollar Baby. I liked the premise, but the writing was sub-par, so I never really became invested in the story or characters.

Books acquired in September:

  1. Seanan McGuire, Chimes at Midnight
  2. Elizabeth Wein, Rose Under Fire
  3. Ludmilla Petrushevskaya, There Once Lived a Woman Who Tried to Kill Her Neighbor’s Baby

  5. Louis Bayard, The Black Tower

  7. Cheryl Sawyer, The Winter Prince
  8. Rex Stout, Fer-de-Lance / The League of Frightened Men
  9. Amanda Foreman, Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire
  10. Hannah March, The Devil’s Highway
  11. Hannah March, A Distinction of Blood
  12. Michael Innes, Death at the President’s Lodging
  13. Michael Innes, Hamlet, Revenge!
  14. Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt, The Most Beautiful Book in the World
  15. Bernard Cornwell & Susannah Kells, The Fallen Angels
  16. Stefanie Pintoff, A Curtain Falls
