Hello my fellow bookworms, I hope you are all well? I have had a warm and super busy September with starting a new school year at work, a visit to ICE 2016-Comic Convention, a trip to the theatre to see The Woman in Black and three schools trips: first, up Thorpe Cloud in the Peak District; next, to Cadbury’s World; and finally, to Bosworth Battlefield. Phew! With all that going on here is what I managed to read:
Fiction: 1 Non-Fiction: 1
In September, I finally got round to reading the latest historical fiction, The Queen’s Choice, from Anne O’Brien which swept me back to 1398 to meet Joanna of Navarre and her second husband Henry IV. Overall, not my favourite of O’Brien’s books but still a well-crafted story about two interesting figures in history.
Alongside that, I read The Hairy Dieters: Fast Food by Si King & Dave Myers; the fourth cookbook in their dieting series. I am not looking to lose weight particularly but I do love how down-to-earth and well balanced these recipes are; plus these new recipes can all be made in 30 minutes.
Pick of the Month: The Hairy Dieters: Fast Food
That is just 2 books finished in September which I am really disappointed with, especially as I don’t feel like I’ve read less. However I have been reading some real chunksters, including: A Feast for Crows by George R.R. Martin and The Man in the Iron Mask by Alexandre Dumas. As well as two Christian non-fictions: 90 Days Through the New Testament by Ron Rhodes and Surprised by Hope by Tom Wright.
In October, I have no fixed plans and I really hope to do more reading!
What did you do and read in September? Do you have any plans for October?
