In the absence of any desire to write any reviews, here is an (extremely sub par) haiku.

I can’t write my blog
but it could be worse
My reading block has gone, yay

Bring on the glorious, glorious cold. I don’t own a disgusting amount of jumpers for fun.

Currently Reading:

Devotion by Patti Smith
Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood



I’ve Read:

  1. One of Us Is Lying – Karen McManus
  2. The Haunted Hotel – Wilkie Collins
  3. Someone Else’s Skin – Sarah Hilary
  4. Shadow and Bone – Leigh Bardugo
  5. Royal Assassin – Robin Hobb
  6. The Roanoke Girls – Amy Engel
  7. The Limehouse Golem – Peter Ackroyd
  8. The Wonder – Emma Donoghue
  9. Elmet – Fiona Mozley
  10. History of Wolves – Emily Fridlund
  11. New People – Danzy Senna
  12. Breakfast at Tiffany’s – Truman Capote
  13. Lincoln in the Bardo – George Saunders

Nothing will ever be as good as Elmet, life has peaked.

So, read anything good recently?

Well you may not have blogged as much but you read a great amount! So pleased to hear your reading mojo is back – happy reading in October :-)


Yay for your reading block having gone away! Just enjoy your reading and don’t forget about the blogging. You will return to writing sooner or later.

Your reading summer sounds good! I also read Elmet recently and enjoyed it! Happy October ?


You read a lot! I need to get back into the swing of things and read books in my queue. Of those, I’ve only heard of “The Roanoak Girls” but they all sound interesting…titles do that to me. :s I saw a movie for “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”…I wonder if they’re related.


Wow! I’m impressed… You read a lot of books. I wish I had the time to read more but I did buy You Are a Badass at Making Money by Jen Sincero this year so maybe I’ll read it all before 2018.
