  1. This is incredibly rude of you to have read 94 books to my 87 when we were so close for the rest of the year, but I suppose I will forgive you. Yay to finally breaking out of this semi-slump that we were both in, hopefully?

    • Here’s hoping! In fairness, I read quite a few short books this month to try and break my slump. I needed the gratification of finishing books without actually committing to anything too long or daunting, lol. Otherwise, I’m sure we’d still be pretty level.

  2. I read David Szalay’s last book and found that disappointing for the same reasons you were not wowed by his latest. It never felt like a book, more like a collection of individual stories

    • That’s a pity. This one tried to strike the balance between a novel and a short story collection, and it sadly missed the mark a little for me. I wouldn’t necessarily write off trying the author again though!

  3. Sorry to hear you had a mini slump, but looking at the star ratings, September wasn’t bad at all. I can’t wait for the gothic and creepy reads in October!

    • It was a weird one; I was still reading and enjoying books, but I felt really demotivated. Still, these things hit us all sometimes, and it seems I’m finding my stride again! Hope you have a great month 😊

      • I suppose we all have our ups and downs when it comes to reading. Sometimes, it helps to take a break from books (yes, I know – horrendous idea 😉 ). Glad you seem to have found your stride again! Thanks!

  4. Some months are like that – they feel lacklustre but are actually decent. It looks like you read some great books in September! And you’re so close to your goal! I’m hoping I might hit my 100 in October but November is probably more likely.

  5. Yay, Frankissstein! I hope you have a better month ahead, without that pesky slump!
    I’ve very much enjoyed your Faber Stories reviews this month, and recently ordered a copy of Greta Thunberg’s speeches as well. Plus I’m so excited to get to A Spell of Winter in a couple of days, and compare notes with everyone!
