September Overview

It’s a long time since I read just 10 books in a month. September is such a month. I just spent much longer on each individual book than normally (because I was busy with other things). It’s fine. I have some great books lined up for October, so I’m expecting another good month coming up.

Book that stood out:

Not a Drop to Drink by Mindy McGinnis was a great book that reminded me of The Dog Stars by Peter Heller. Not a Drop to Drink is a dystopian novel about water shortage and survival.

This is what I read

    I’m looking forward to finding out what your thought about A Beautiful Truth, it was a bit hit and miss for me.

  2. Athira says:

    You had a great month! I’m curious about what you think of Not a Drop to Drink.

    It’s a great month anyway!
    My favourite book of September was a classic: Miss Pettigrew lives for a day 🙂

  4. It is interesting to see you highlighting The Dog Stars as I abandoned it. I know a lot of people loved it, but I found it too light. I look forward to your review of ‘Not A Drop’ to drink – I love that type of dystopian novel – as long as it feel realsitic. Hope you have a wonderful October!

    A nice list! An audiobook I really enjoyed in September was How the Light Gets In by Louise Penny, narrated by Ralph Cosham.

  6. I can’t wait to read Cartwheel – it’s out here next month. Sounds fascinating!

I love comments! Let me know what you think.
