Library Checkout – September 2016


Did September feel like the longest month ever to anyone else? Maybe it’s just that it was an eventful month so it feels long? Like, if I look back to the long weekend, that feels like years ago.

It was a fairly solid reading month. The great thing about September is that things go back to normal. I mostly really like normal. I’m hoping to finish one more book before the month is actually over so that I can say I finished 14 books this month but I’m not totally sure that it will happen.

That said, I’ve been pretty happy with my reading this month. It started a little slowly, I wasn’t loving the books I was reading but they weren’t terrible. The later half of the month saw an uptick in book love.

And now it’s time to join Shannon in looking at library reading this month!

None, currently BUT I did put Bellweather Rhapsody and The Accidental Empress on hold. AND I’m the very first person to read their copy of The Accidental Empress. Hold progress.

  1. Interesting, I’m reading Alison Pataki’s The Traitor’s Wife for book club right now, I didn’t know she had another. I might have crossed the line into too irritated to finish last night – but now I of course will have to look up this book too.

  2. Happy library news here – our library has finally re-opened (just yesterday). It was a long haul, but I made it through and we went today to have a peek and I think I can even say it was worth it. My daughter’s planning to take pics next tome she’s there, so, if I can get my act together, I’ll post them!
    The bad news – I don’t need any library books right now, because I have Giller books to read. I’m going to wait a couple more weeks before I allow myself the luxury. But, I did have fun picking some out in the teen section with my daughter. 🙂
    So, what was your favourite book this month?

    • Yay!!! Library reopening! Nice to hold off ok the joy of library browsing though. And you still got to experience it vicariously.
      Library book favourites – a tie between Bellweather Rhapsody and Under the Udala Trees. Overall, those 2 and add Sarong Party Girls. I *just* finished Dear Mr M and WOW. But I guess that’s for October!

  4. I am so jealous of all your wonderful lists of books! For some weird reason going to college for an English degree doesn’t actually let you read a whole lot of the stuff you think you will – so much more writing than reading…research reading. So I will live vicariously through your blog and others! Lol
