Welcome in, do join me by sharing your link to your look back at this month. I’m looking forward to visiting and seeing what everyone has been up to.  The link will be open for you to share your post whenever you post over the next few days.  Do visit each others’ posts.

Total books read this month:  17

And all worth reading!

New to me authors:

Emily Madden
Veronica Henry
Louise Miller
Karen Schaler
Fleur Beale
Joanna Nell

Reading Challenge Update:

No challenges completed this month, although have furthered along my audio book challenge, but to complete would need to listen to 5 more. Maybe, maybe not.

To complete other challenges will need to read:

  • a book into a movie
  • non fiction hobby book (underway)
  • book to improve life      (underway)
  • a reread
  • a book with more than 500 pages
  • a banned book
  • a travelogue

Reading Club Update:

I read The Lost Pearl by Emily Madden for the Rachael Johns’ online book club, and… missed the live Facebook discussion but saw part of it later and some of the discussion. Mixed my days up, but… I  not that worried. November’s book is to be Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty. I don’t have a copy and looks like the library one might be a long way away!

I enjoyed The Single Ladies of the Jacaranda Village by Joanna Nell and the guided discussion and comments into it from Joanna Nell added to it. The Books With Heart online book club run by Hachette Australia has not announced the November book which to my mind is too slow!

Outside Reading Highlights

I always love our October book fair run by the local Lions’ clubs, an excellent way to give and buy books! I must do a post soon on the books I bought.

I got my vegie garden up and running, potatoes and pumpkins are up and so are the beans and just beginning to beat the snails. I have my tomatoes in two pots under shelter still.

In the last days of October I worked some more on my bookshelf quilt and have to decided to “thread paint” (free motion quilt) on the names of authors I love. So that when I look at it, it makes me remember authors who have given me many happy reading hours. I will have some childhood ones, some I’ve loved for a long time, and some I have “found” in the last ten years.

I have put two of those on from the last ten years as a trial and found I liked it, it will take quite awhile to get them all on but while I do it I remember the many happy hours of reading these authors gave me.

Main Reading Goals for November

This month I want to fit in some rereads. Books I know I love and have forgotten. My aim is about 3 – 4. Incoming library books might interfere with that!

For me September was about keeping an eye on the reading challenges I had set myself, so I am interested to see how I went and how much further I have to advance!

A holiday season book –  The Wishing Tree
A number in the title  – Three Gold Coins 
A classic   – Persuasion
Last book added to my TBR – By Invitation Only Dorothea Benton Frank
Children’s Book  Emily of New Moon  L. M. Montgomery
Randomly chosen from TBR – Flirting With Pete  Barbara Delinsky

So for the last three months of the year I still have some challenges I’d like to advance a little more.  I have finished the library challenge although of course I am still reading from the library!

Favourite September book

Ah, so many good books in this month. In the end I have chosen this book for my favourite but so many close runner ups!

book cover

 

What I am looking forward to reading in October

Now that’s a bit of a hard question, obviously my own bookshelf is groaning with books I want to read and some are also on the way and then of course the library will tell me a book is ready to pick up. But … let’s see.  The first two are on my bookshelf, the Cathy Lamb is for review from Kensington. The anticipation for each book fills me with delight.

Incoming books

Bought – paperbacks

Kindle Books

I bought The Wednesday Wars by Gary Schmidt because his Okay for Now might just be my top favourite children’s book.

From the Library

This was the month of the feast from the library. So many of my reserved books came in! Looking at them now I see I have finished with them all and they have been returned! The pressure of other readers waiting!

From Edelweiss or NetGalley

That one without a title is American Duchess: A Novel of Consuelo Vanderbilt.

 

Audiobooks bought.

 

 

This month I also joined two Australian book  clubs online on Facebook.  One is Rachael Johns Online Book Club  (Australian author) and also Hachette Australia’s Books with Heart Book Club. Each read one book a month and talk about it. Australian books of course, but I decided that I’d enjoy reading many of them, as they are mostly women’s fiction genre so I think it will be an excellent fit for me. The New Zealand population of 5 million is too small for such things!  I know! I know! Many cities in the world have double, triple and more of that! You can see why when we travel for the first time we are a little over awed!

The October read for Books with Heart is about a 79 year old woman. And that will cover a reading challenge topic for me as well. I’ve bought this one as too many reserves on it at the library!book cover

Rachael John’s club read is reading in October …    I’ve bought this one as well and its on its way from Booktopia. (An Australian site) as I couldn’t find it in my local bookshop. Again too many reserves on it at the library, which is good!

book cover

So that’s a wrap for September, I count it as a very good month.  As we slide into October – I saw a blogger calling this Owntober which is a good reminder to read our own books! And I hope to read some more of them. But… there is the local book fair mid October where there will be cheap books. Hmm I’ll limit myself I think. Maybe ten at the most! Have I read last year’s haul, I need to look at that, maybe I haven’t even read one! Ouch.

So what was your reading month like?  Last month I had a book giveaway – I have contacted the winner but haven’t heard back, but I do believe she has been away so I’ll wait awhile longer to give her time to check her email. More news on that next time.

Looking forward to reading in September

I intend reading some books to work towards completing some reading challenges as well as some review books. Persuasion is for a reading challenge and I have long wanted to try the Emily series since I was informed by Katherine over at I Wish I lived in a Library (and wouldn’t we all) at how good this series is.

14 books is a little light for me, however it did take me almost a week to read Silver Silence as I read it slowly and needed to concentrate on every word! I haven’t quite finished the last on my list – The Tulip Sisters, but by the time June ends I’ll be there I do believe

Top Book for June

I enjoyed all my reads, however Silver Silence was my favourite. It was my most anticipated read for June and it certainly delivered. I also have a signed book which makes it a little more special. I just loved the whole bear clan and Valentin and Silver. Its a series and a book that just whisks me away from my own world, and as I emerge from it I feel I have been there.

This is Nalini being interviewed on TV here in New Zealand about her new book.

Looking Forward to Reading in July…

Well I always look forward with anticipation to a new Fatal book by Marie Force, and her new one comes out on the 25th of July, I have made time in my calendar as well to read it. This will be an auto-buy for me!

Jodi Picoult wrote such a challenging and well researched book that I totally enjoyed and also learned from. I congratulate her on the topic she chose and the risk she took in writing it. She did a small great thing.

Top Books for April

This was in audiobook format and a reread, but honestly the one I totally enjoyed the best. It does make a good case for rereading when you have forgotten a good deal of it but you know you loved it!
Another audiobook. Set in southern England in 1940, in a small village. Amazing, superb narration and brilliant story.

Looking Forward to reading in May…

A new one from Emilie Richards that is published in June

Reading Challenges Update.

I am on track I think to complete most/all my reading challenges for 2016. I thought I wouldn’t achieve the audiobook one but I think now I will. I am deciding what I will do for 2017, not many. I plan to read less and more slowly in 2017!
