Reading Wrap-Up for September

Thanks to 1girl2manybooks at All The Books I Can Read for the reminder that it was time to get this post written. I had a half plan to write it last night but…. well, life happened. Actually to be honest Victoria Purman happened, I was snuggling with my youngest boy and my youngest nephew and reading when all time kind of slipped out the window. As did the reminder that I had a potato salad to cook for the AFL Grand Final BBQ I’m going to today.

So I best get it written now before I get organised and head out to watch the football. Go the Swans (only because we are going to a Swans fans for the BBQ).

Total Books I read in September: 8
8 Female authors/ 0 Male author
1  Children’s books
7 Fiction novels
4 print/ 4 digital
Books in a series: 3
5 stars on Goodreads: 3
4 stars on Goodreads: 4
Books that qualify for AWW2016: 7


So my trend of increasing the total every month came to an end with only 8 books read this month but there’s been a bit going on so I can’t really complain. School holidays have just started here in SA so I’m not sure I will do any better in October with all the kids home to entertain.
Six of this months books are book club titles, and the other 2 were digitals I snuck in while I waited for my last book club title to arrive on my desk. I look forward to hearing what our readers think and the reviews are already coming in for The Fence, Jewel Sea, The Cleanskin and Escape to the Moon Islands and overall the books have been quite enjoyed.

My favourite this month is without a doubt The Three Miss Allens, it’s a family drama with intrigue and mystery and amazing characters set right here in South Australia.

Least favourite is Jewel Sea which only got 3 Goodreads stars. This was a book that I did enjoy but it took a while to get involved and it was quite short. It’s an historical based on a true event so that’s always interesting.

Four digitals is a good sign, and I think there will be a few coming up. I have added a couple to my device and not got around to them so maybe October will be the month.


My most anticipated read for October… well I don’t actually have one at this point but there are definitely a few I am hoping to remove from the teetering TBR pile and move to the read pile.

What have you read and loved this month?
