Great! September and the book buying ban is over and we can all go back to our regularly scheduled program and buy books as if there was no tomorrow (and I am sure some of us will do exactly that).
How did I do with my September list? So so. I think I will have to give up The Shipping News altogether. I just can’t bring myself to pick it up again. I have almost reached the same point with The Jane Austen Book Club. “Fugitive” by Cheryl Brooks, well, how can I put it? I had high expectations, but for some reason, it couldn’t hold my attention either. It’ll have to go on the back burner. Highlight of the month definitely was The Gargoyle.
My reading list for October is rather small. I expect to read a few review books plus the following:
- “The Monkey’s Paw” by W. W. Jacobs (re-read) for the RIP challenge
- “I’d know you anywhere” by Laura Lippman for the RIP challenge. I might have to postpone this one though simply for economical reasons. I am not willing to spend 20 EUR on it, and there is no way our library will have it anytime soon.
- “The Princess Bride” for the Princess Bride read along at Chrisbookarama. Need to start this one today!
- “Heart of Darkness” by Joseph Conrad, just so.
- “Soulless” for the Steampunk challenge
- “The Wish” by Eden Winters for review. Already read it, review will come shortly.
- “Strange Fortune” by Josh Lanyon for review
