Wow, September passed in a bit of a blur, didn’t it? Let’s see what went on around the Bookcase this month.
In real life I got super-busy at work, we had a few sicknesses at home and also a big game release, which all contributed to not a lot of blogging, but still a fair bit of reading. I’m a bit behind with reviews but I’m hanging in there, more or less.
This last weekend was given over to Bloggiesta, for which I’m pretty ashamed to say I achieved very little of the goals I set out to complete. I’m hoping to get them done during this week instead. We’ll see!
Reviews for September:
- Rating: A Discovery of Witches, Deborah Harkness
- Rating: Defiance, CJ Redwine
- Rating: Shift, Kim Curran
- Rating: Rua, Miranda Kavi
- Rating: The Gunslinger (The Dark Tower #1), Stephen King
- Rating: World of Warcraft: Pearl of Pandaria, Micky Neilson and Sam Galloway
- Rating: A Corner of White, Jaclyn Moriarty
- Flight, Alyssa Rose Ivy – sadly I didn’t enjoy this book all that much. I’ll probably review it on Goodreads at least, after the tour is over.
- Love in a Cold Climate, Nancy Mitford – a classic book for our book club this month. I sort of enjoyed it but it doesn’t really belong on a fantasy/sci-fi blog.
- Froi of the Exiles, Melina Marchetta – review coming very soon!
- Seeds of Discovery, Breeana Puttroff – review coming very soon!
I’d say my favourite this month would have to be A Corner of White – such a unique and eccentric story, I loved it!
Coming up in October
So far October is still looking very busy for me, so I’ll be aiming primarily to keep on top of reviews and try to read more than I accept! It’s the usual story of the battle against the review pile around here, my friends!
I hope you’ve had a productive and enjoyable September. Can you believe the year is almost three-quarters done?
I didn’t sign up for Bloggiesta because I knew I’d get nothing done this weekend but I do have a to-do list with stuff for the blog. And at least you still found time to read in your busy life.
