I have mixed feelings about September. I love the fact it is the start of a new school year as I like starting things a fresh, just like I will always half like Mondays because of the idea of starting again. However it also makes me feel a little scared in case things don’t start well or I don’t enjoy the sudden return to work and the crazy workload. Luckily this year I am feeling positive about work and I am still feeling positive about it at the end of the month so I’m taking this as a good sign.
As predicted September saw my reading slow done considerably. This was to be expected, but I am still happy with the amount of reading I have completed this month and I think my reading enrichment at school allows me to take a step back and just relax and remember to read. In September I read:
Ian Fleming by Andrew Lycett
Girl with a Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier
The First Casualty by Ben Elton
Agatha Raisin and the Wizard of Evesham by M. C. Beaton
Agatha Raisin and the Witch of Wyckhadden by M. C. Beaton
I have yet to review the last two books.
Both Ian Fleming and Girl with a Pearl Earring count towards by Reading the Twentieth Century Challenge
Girl with a Pearl Earring also counts towards by TBR Pile for the year and I am making good progress with this challenge, with only two more books left to reach 12.
I don’t really have any reading plans for October. I think it will be a case of going where ever the mood takes me. Part of me wants to read the next book in A Song of Fire and Ice, part of me fancies a classic, like Wilkie Collins’ The Woman in White and then another part of me feels like a light hearted chick lit, so who knows.
