I know… I took a month off from blogging. Again, I have loads of excuses, but nevermind. Better late than never, right?
So here’s the book wrap up for both August and September. I had no idea I’d read so much the last two months and I have to say I’m pretty impressed!
August Book Wrap Up
Books Read: 6
The Hour I First Believed – Wally Lamb
The Story Sisters – Alice Hoffman
Wintergirls – Laurie Halse Andersen (Sister Read!)
Jezebel – Irene Nemirovsky
A Confederacy of Dunces – John Kennedy Toole
The Hypnotist – Lars Kepler
Books Abandoned: 1
The Strain – Guillermo del Toro
Worst Book: I’m going to get some schtick for this from my hipper friends, but I just couldn’t stand A Confederacy of Dunces. Apparently, after reading reviews, it’s a bit of a marmite book—you either love it or loathed it. I loathed it.
September Book Wrap Up
Books Read: 5
Gone Girl – Gillian Flynn
Lace – Shirley Conran
The Woman in the Fifth – Douglas Kennedy
When She Woke – Hillary Jordan
Books Abandoned: 0
Currently Reading: 1
The Snow Child – Eowyn Ivey
Best Book: Totally a hard one for September. With the exception of Gone Girl all of these were read on the beach, so I have a great fondness for all of them. Gone Girl was pretty amazing and twisted but I’d have to say my ultimate favourite would have to be the 800 page brick otherwise known as Lace. One word, people… goldfish. That’s it.
Worst book: There wasn’t one!
