Sunday Salon: September Reading Wrap-Up

The Sunday Salon.com


I read ten books in September, two more than my total for August, putting me at a 74 for the year. I've almost met my low goal in the 75 Book Challenge, so I'm happy. My high goal of 100+ looks easily attainable at this point.

Here are my September reads:
  1. The Keepsake by Tess Gerritsen
  2. The Lost Diary of Don Juan by Douglas Carlton Abrams
  3. Nefertiti by Michelle Moran
  4. Enola Holmes and the Case of the Missing Marquess by Nancy Springer
  5. Midwife of the Blue Ridge by Christine Blevins
  6. Run by Ann Patchett
  7. A Great Deliverance by Elizabeth George
  8. The Halloween Tree by Ray Bradbury
  9. When We Were Romans by Matthew Kneale
  10. The Torchwood Official Magazine Yearbook by Titan Books
My Top 3 for September:





I have lots of reviews to catch up on, and I'm looking forward to reviewing all of these. Life's been hectic the last few weeks and being sick certainly hasn't helped. I'm going to spend the rest of the day finishing up my reads for Banned Books Week, James and Giant Peach by Roald Dahl and Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson.

What did you read in September? Have you read any of the books on my list?

  1. I've only read one of those books - When We Were Romans - but Nefertiti is in my TBR pile.

  2. I haven't read any of the books on your list, but I will be reading Nefertiti this week (hopefully). I would really like to read The Lost Diary of Don Juan and Midwife of the Blue Ridge.

  4. I haven't read any of those, but I've heard great things about several of them. My numbers are way way down, but I'm hoping it picks up soon.

  5. Congrats on exceeding the challenge! I read 11 this month, though I've read none that you read this month. When we were Romans is coming up soon!

  6. I read Bridge to Terabithia when I was younger, but I've all but forgotten it. I should read it again! I haven't read any of your reads for this month, but will keep an eye out for the reviews.

  7. There are some interesting books on your list. I need to become more intentional about carving out reading time...unfortunately with the return of fall TV I've gotten lazy in that regard. :P I'm interested in the Nancy Springer book...have you read any of Laurie R. King's Mary Russell/Holmes mysteries?

  10. You got a lot of reading done Ruth-that's awesome. I'm just reading Nefertiti now and really enjoying it. I sure hope you're feeling better now.

  11. I haven't read any of the books on your September list, but wow you've been busy! If you need quick reads to make a total, graphic novels are always good :-)

  12. I am so glad that I'm not the only one behind on reviews. My mojo is depleted. I just received The Lost Diary of Don Juan and I can't wait to start reading it. I hope that you're feeling better very soon if not already.

  13. Can't wait to see what you thought of Enola Holmes. I really enjoyed it. I've bought the next two in the series but haven't gotten to them, yet.
