Happy autumn! During September, I read and reviewed the following books:
- [7 Sep] The Waterborne Blade (Waterborne, #1) by Susan Murray
- [10 Sep] The Sparrow Sisters: A Novel by Ellen Herrick
- [14 Sep] Dark Star by Oliver Langmead
- [24 Sep] The Sisters of Versailles by Sally Christie
- [30 Sep] Mistress of the Court by Laura Purcell
And now, for October reading/blogging plans! To begin with, I will start with the disclaimer that I don’t plan on getting a lot done in October. Work is going to be extra busy, and I’ll be spending a week at a conference in Montreal. That being said, I have a couple goals:
- Catch up on writing reviews of books I’ve read but haven’t written about yet, even if that means doing a mini-review post where I talk a little bit about each of them. Blogging is starting to feel stressful to me, and I know it shouldn’t, so I think clearing out my queue and starting semi-fresh will help.
- Write at least one post for the “A More Diverse Universe” event, which celebrates diversity in sci-fi and fantasy. Right now I’m in the middle of the collection Falling in Love with Hominids by Nalo Hopkinson. While my bookshelf and TBR pile are pretty diverse, the portion of it that I’ve actually read this year hasn’t been, and I should fix that.
- Read/finish at least one more book for the Readers Imbibing Peril event. I’m currently in the middle of The Visitant by Megan Chance, which is a historical ghost story set in Venice. Chance’s writing is both seductive and disturbing, as I discovered when I read Inamorata last year, and I am excited to read her newest novel.
What are your October reading plans?
