I had another good reading month, more review books than I had hoped - it just seems difficult to get to those new books I have bought in the hope of reading!

So how did your reading month pan out?


  1. I can't believe September is over already.

    You had an amazing month. Fifteen books in a month is wonderful. I can barely manage four.

    The books all sound good. I didn't know Beatriz Williams had another book...I haven't heard of Overseas. Is it a new title or an old title?

    The Bishop's Girl looks like a really good read. Love the cover.

    ENJOY your weekend, Kathryn, and Happy Reading!!


    1. I am not totally sure Elizabeth but I think Overseas might have been her debut novel, its an older one anyway.

  2. Looks like so many great titles this month. Enjoy!

  3. What a great month you had, Kathryn. I think I'm going to save the new Higgins for my first book of 2017 :) Here's hoping your October reading is even better than September!

    1. Would be perfect for 1st of year. I will have to start thinking about mine!

  4. You had a great month! I'll be posting my wrap-up later today, as I hope to finish a couple more books.

    I am eyeing Pretty Little World. Enjoy your books!

  5. 15 books in 30 days; that is darn good. Some handsome covers here. Which Susan Elizabeth Phillips book do you suggest I read first?

    1. They are all good, however First Lady was probably one of my favs mainly because I loved the presidential twist and there is a follow up for one of the characters in a later book. While she does right some in series they can be read as standalones as well. I'd just look at her books and see what interests. They are a light read but well written.

    2. Yes well that would be write!

  6. Two by Two is a new Nicholas Sparks book for me, I'll have to check it out! Have a wonderful October.

  7. Wow where has the year gone, while you're getting ready for spring and summer the leaves are turning red and gold and the temps are finally falling off to enjoyable ranges. I didn't count my reads this month probably in the same range as you

  8. You had a great reading month! There's something about the Fall that really gets me excited about reading and blogging again, so here's to a great October!

  9. Another awesome month for you. I'd like to read Two By Two. Happy October!

  10. oh man 15 books? i really wish i could do that. Hope you enjoy A Promise of Fire! I want to read that soon

  11. ah ah getting closer to you this month with 13! You have some cool covers here, enjoy your October readings

  12. Such a great reading month, with so many wonderful incoming and upcoming titles! I hope you have a wonderful October!

  13. Oo Breath of Fire..I almost accepted it, but honestly I want to listen again. I just hope it release around the same time! You did awesome :)

  14. Wow, great choices (and great covers-- love the looks of some of these).

    I've read a Cathy Lamb so I should look for The Language of Sisters. I've put The Promise of Fire high up on my list of possible e-books to download this month, after reading a great review by Kim(ba) of it. The Bishop's Girl looks like something I would enjoy, too.

    I'm writing down many of these titles to go on my TLF (to-look-for) list. So many books you read this past month, Kathryn; you've been busy!
