Some of you may remember that I suffered from a reading slump last month. I only read seven books, and the majority of them were YA. This month I read nine books. Yes, that is only two more books, but I think the quality of my books was so much better this month, so that means more than anything.
Here is what I read:
I’d Know You Anywhere, Laura Lippman
Wait Until Twilight, Sang Pak
Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, John Berendt
The Historian, Elizabeth Kostova
Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury
The Dracula Dossier, James Reese
Room, Emma Donoghue
The Sealed Letter, Emma Donoghue
The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, Muriel Spark
As you can see, the majority of my reading was for the RIP challenge. I hope to keep that up for October as well. RIP is my favorite challenge and there is nothing better than curling up with a scary book when fall hits.
My year to date yield is 81 books, so I am definitely on track to hit 100 books before the end of the year. I think the read-a-thon will definitely help me hit that goal too. I am hoping to get even more reading done in October!
How was your reading month?
