Literary Life: September in Review

The weather is cooling, I am back in jumpers and aside from a rather hideous cold, all is well in the world.

My reading slump may finally be over, hurrah!

And in other news: I’ve been over the web a bit this month, contributing at Don’t Read Too Fast’s ‘Why Read‘ series and displaying my bookshelf at Savidge Reads.

Currently Reading:

Small Island by Andrea Levy
Us by David Nicholls


Cider with Rosie by Laurie Lee
Angel by Elizabeth Taylor
Mrs Palfrey at the Claremont by Elizabeth Taylor (turns out Taylor just isn’t for me)


  1. The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell
  2. The Vet’s Daughter by Barbara Comyns
  3. Sisters by a River by Barbara Comyns
  4. More Fool Me by Stephen Fry
  5. Blue Nights by Joan Didion

How was your September?

    1. Yes and no. I don’t want to say too much in case it influences your reading, but I thought it was interesting and well written, but perhaps not for me, (To be fair to him, it would be tough to beat Cloud Atlas.)


    1. It’s been on my radar a long time too, I’m a little nervous about getting into it. I’m on Us at the moment, I’ll hopefully read and review Small Islands by Monday.


  1. That is awesome news that the reading slump is over and that you have also been sharing your good self on other websites. I think that is really cool. 🙂 ❤
