Hello my fellow bookworms, I hope you are all well? October has been cold and has just flown by for me; I think I blinked and missed it! Work has continued to go well however I have also been suffering with sinus problems, a rotten cold and cough. When I am under the weather I often find myself watching more TV and films as I find them easier on my mind. So I have watched plenty of good adaptations this month but sadly I had read a lot less.
Fiction: 3 Non-Fiction: 2 Poetry: 0
I started the month off with Kidnapped by Robert Louis Stevenson off my Classics Club list. A sweeping historical adventure that was a little slow but a comforting read. October has also seen the R.I.P X event continue for me so first up was modern classic The Airs Above the Ground by Mary Stewart. A nostalgic suspense set in the beautiful Austrian mountains which was a perfect read for this event and my tired mind. Then I finished the event off with, the classic Sherlock Holmes mystery, The Hound of the Baskervilles by Arthur Conan Doyle. My full thoughts still to be posted.
Alongside these fictions I also read two non-fictions. First historical non-fiction The Rise of Thomas Cromwell by Michael Everett. A really interesting look into the back story and day-to-day life of the notorious Thomas Cromwell. Then at the end of the month I finished off Christian non-fiction Better Relationships, Better Life by Pam Ovwigho. My full thoughts still to be posted.
Pick of the Month: The Hound of the Baskervilles
The beginning of the month was slow for me but my reading improved near the end and I did really enjoy all that I read. Near the end of the month I also started reading the mysterious Lamp Black, Wolf Grey by Paula Brackston.
In November I am looking forward to Bonfire night and more nights snuggled up with a good book.
What did you do and read in October? Any plans for November?
