What is going on with my reading???
I have only finished seven books in September. That is really bad for me. I was practically reading double that in January. I wouldn't mind but most of Time's Legacy was read during August. I really need to kick butt when it comes to reading during October.
Here are the six books that I read.
1) Chasing Brooklyn by Lisa Shroeder
2) The City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau
3) Time's Legacy by Barbara Erskine
4) The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
5) Ghost Ship by Dietlof Reiche
6) This Year You Write Your Novel by Walter Mosley
7) The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova
I just realised that I only actually reviewed three of them. The rest of my reviews were books from August. I intend to spend October increasing my reading and catching up on all outstanding reviews.
To be fair, this month has been rather stressful. The girls went back to school the day after we came back from holiday. I have spent most of the month, catching up on hospital appointments, dentist, opticians - I should be mechanically perfect by now.
I have also had to look into secondary schools for my girls and it has been a big headache. We will probably end up going to our catchment area school, which I was more than happy with, I just feel a little anxious when listening to other parents who are adamant their children wouldn't set foot in it. Aargh!
Anyway, I promise to try harder with my reading next month.
