20 comments on “September Wrap Up

  1. You had a great reading month, and diverse as usual which keeps it interesting. Congratulations on reaching such a lofty number!

    One day I’ll look to see how many I’ve read this year. I spend as much time as I can reading and yet the number is usually lower than I expect.

    Your review of Fisher’s book makes me want to bump it up on my TBR. It looks wonderful!

    By far my favorite read of the month was “Magic Triumphs” by Ilona Andrews. It is the final (sob) book in the Kate Daniels series. The authors took the series to a graceful end and gave super invested fans like myself a satisfying farewell to a beloved series. I have photos of myself with the authors and a signed copy to treasure. They brought urban fantasy to new heights and inspire me to sharpen my writing skills even more having read this book.

    Do you know what you’re reading next month?

    • Thank you, Gina! 😊

      I love Carrie Fisher; her early passing was such a loss. I’ve read all three of her memoirs now, and am excited to try her novels.

      You can’t ask for much more from a book than for it to both satisfy the reader and inspire the writer in you!

      I’m hoping to pick up some spooky or gothic reads to tie in with the season. I’m currently reading some of Shirley Jackson’s short stories, and have a habit of reading some Stephen King around October. Other than that, I’ll see where my mood takes me 😊

      Do you have any specific reads lined up?

      • I also plan to reader Fisher’s novels. What a life and what a talent. She made our world better, that’s for sure.

        Reading by mood sounds perfect and is a great fit with the season! I look forward to seeing where it takes you.

        Did I mention or did you catch that I went to King’s house and took a picture in front of it? My brother and his family live a few blocks away from their Maine home. That experience is ne of my life’s highlights.

        I’m judging a short story competition for Prolitfic, so that will take up the first week or so of my reading time for October. After that I will continue with the Wanted & Wired series (sci-fi romance) by Vivien Jackson as I am sitting at her table at the Buns & Roses Romance Tea for Literacy Fundraiser on October 21st. Following the sci-fi romance are two western romances by Allison B. Collins from her Cowboys to Grooms series for the Readers n’ ritas event we’re attending in November. Christine Feehan, whom I’ve loved from afar for years and years will also be at Readers n’ ritas, so I’ll catch up with either her Ghostwalker series (sci-fi romance) or her Dark series (vampire romance). I’m currently booked (yulk yuk) to say the least.

  2. The Prince and the Dressmaker sounds delightful, and I haven’t read a graphic novel in a while so I’ll definitely be checking that out. I indulge in a ‘happily ever after’ every chance I get!! 🙂

  3. In the Whiteley novel, do characters give up their stories and actually lose them in a supernatural sense (kind of like how Ariel loses her voice in The Little Mermaid), or do the characters tell a tale in exchange for the island visit?
