Hello my fellow bookworms, I hope this post finds you all safe and well. A bright, cooler and wetter month has passed, which has seen us returning to school full time with all the students back, and now it is time to reflect back on what we’ve been reading in September.
~ Books ~
The Black Corsair by Emilio Salgari (1898) ** – At the beginning of the month, I finished this Italian classic, about the legendary Caribbean pirate, the ‘Black Corsair’, as he seeks revenge for his brothers, slain by the Duke Van Guld, governor of Maracaibo. A fun swashbuckling adventure with battles, storms, sword fights, and daring pursuits and escapes, which was a good escapist read from the stress and busy-ness of life!
Holy Bible – I finished reading 1 Corinthians and 2 Corinthians, in the New Testament, the two collections of the apostle Paul’s letters to the church in Corinth, Greece, and the short Old Testament book of the prophet Malachi.
~ Other Bookish Things ~
Altogether that is only one book finished in September, which is my lowest monthly amount since I started this blog over ten years ago! 🙁 And with The Black Corsair being the only book finished it has to be my pick of the month by default! Books I am continuing over into September are the paranormal, romance and historical-fiction, The Firebird by Susanna Kearsley; the classic adventure, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne and the Christian non-fiction, The Bible Jesus Read by Philip Yancey.
As for challenges, my one read was a book off my Classics Club list and, in the coming month, I am looking forward to finally getting into the R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril XV reading event properly. While I made great progress on catching up on my backlog of reviews here in August, I have shockingly posted no reviews this month! Thankfully, having only finished one book, that means I am still only one month and one books-worth behind! 😅
So do keep your eyes peeled for my full thoughts on my reading coming up over the next week or so. Take care and happy reading in October! 👋🍂🎃📚
Now over to you: I’d love to hear what you read in September? What are your plans for October? If you’ve done your own reading round-up post for September, please leave a link in the comments so we can come check it out, too.
