I thought October was another slow reading month for me, but when I look at my compiled list it wasn’t so bad after all.
- I reviewed Come together by Josie Lloyd & Emlyn Rees
- I reviewed Never seduce a Scot by Maya Banks
- I reviewed Is Heathcliff a murderer? by John Sutherland
- I read and reviewed Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone for the Harry Potter readalong
- I read and reviewed The Birthmark by Nathaniel Hawthorne at Elena’s recommendation
- I looked through and reviewed the Duchy Originals Cookbook
- I read Shades of Earl Grey by Laura Childs
- October also was the month of the Literary Giveaway Blog Hop where I gave away a set of bookmarks.
- I visited our new library.
- I gave my blog a new look and got a couple of new features:
- My new template has various post types so that I can just slot in a little quote post without a title, which I find rather cool. I haven’t tried out other post types as I find the WordPress interface for writing posts rather clumsy – frankly, I hate it.
- At the top menu there is an item called Archives now which lists all blog posts arranged by date. So with one click you can find all posts from, let’s say, a specific month in list format. I quite like that.
In November I really would like to get on with The Grass Crown, especially because I want to have it finished by the end of the year for Birgit’s Tea & Books Reading Challenge.
I want to finish “What matters in Jane Austen” by John Mullan and “All the money in the world” by Laura Vanderkam. I am not sure whether I actually will finish the latter, I think I am not in this book’s target group.
Did you have a good reading month and what is on your reading list now?
