It can’t be denied. Fall has finally arrived. That means my footie pajamas have come out of hiding and I am drinking copious amounts of coffee and chai lattes. Candles are constantly burning and I am always wrapped in a cozy blanket. So what does that mean for my reading? Well, it means that I am reading more. I expected that to be reflected in my numbers this month, but it isn’t really. Part of that is due to The Alienist, which took me ten days to read.
Here is what I read during September:
The Wordy Shipmates, by Sarah Vowell
The Alienist, by Caleb Carr
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, by Ransom Riggs
The True Memoirs of Little K, by Adrienne Sharp
The Poison Tree, by Erin Kelly
Cold Kiss, by Amy Garvey
Napoleon’s Privates, by Tom Perrottet
Curtains, Tom Jokinen
Jumping off Swings, Jo Knowles
That’s a grand total of 9 books, plus one DNF (Waiting for Robert Capa).
I had a tie for my favorite book of the month.
As for my challenges, you may remember that I dropped pretty much every challenge earlier this year, but I am participating in two challenges at the moment.
Information for the Europa challenge can be found here. I chose to read 4 Europas by the end of 2011. I don’t know if that will happen, because at this point I have only read one. Plus, I am in such an RIP swing of things that I have been reading mostly books that fall under that category. Maybe I should join the perpetual challenge . . .
RIP is my favorite challenge of the year. Information for it can be found here. I have already surpassed the level I chose, which was 4 books. So far, I have read 5 books for this challenge and I plan to keep going strong in October. Plus, I plan to read The Lantern for Carl’s RIP readathon, so I am looking forward to that too.
How was September for you?
