Month In Review

Good-bye to September. How has your month been? This has seemed like a really long month to me. My work is getting busier as it’s typical for a lot HR departments towards the end of the year. Unfortunately my reading has once again kind of stalled but I’m hopeful that I’m getting out of a bit of slump. Luckily when my reading stalls, I have my crafty projects to turn to and I’ve been have a lot of fun with those but I’ll save the craft talk for another post.

In September I finished three books: The Club Dumas by Arturo Perez-Reverte, Hieroglyphics by Jill McCorkle and Signs Preceding the End of the World by Yuri Herrera. All had some good points but not enough to say this is a favorite of the year.

I think I would have enjoyed The Club Dumas more if I had read The Three Musketeers recently. Hieroglyphics had a lot of back and forth in time and multiple view points and I think having it as an ebook didn’t help. Signs Preceding the End of the World didn’t wow me as much because I kept comparing it to Hurricane Season which I read last month and I am still thinking about.

Unfortunately I didn’t finish a book for the R.I.P. XV reading challenge but I am about half way through The Turn of the Screw by Henry James. When I first started this I wasn’t as taken in but that could have been my whole reading slump issue but now that I’m half way, it’s really great. I’m looking forward to finishing it this weekend.

Let me know if you read a great book this month. Do you have any reading plans for October?
