So, it’s nearly Halloween, wahoo! September has been a fun, busy month for me. I went to Ibiza, got back in one piece, organised an editorial board meeting and took on some more responsibilities at work! To recap, this month, I have read and reviewed:
The Hunger by Alma Katsu 5*
The Corset by Laura Purcell 5*
Don’t Wake Up by Liz Lawler 3.5*
Dead End by Rachel Lynch 4.5*
Friend of the Family by Tasmina Perry 4*
What Was Lost by Jean Levy 5*
My September highlight was definitely What Was Lost by Jean Levy; she is definitely an author to watch out for!
October looks to be another exciting month; I have started meeting with my SYPahead mentor, Felice McKeown, the Senior Digital Marketing Manager at Bonnier Zaffre (one of my favourite trade publishers), I am heading to Lisbon to surprise my friend for his birthday AND I will start planning for NaNoWriMo. So, what will I be reading in amongst all of this?
The Cuckoo Wood by M. Sean Coleman (review out today, apologies for delay)
Aaru by David Meredith
In a House of Lies by Ian Rankin
Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty
The Key by Kathryn Hughes
You Only Live Once by Jess Vallance
And So It Begins by Rachel Abbott
Broken Things by Lauren Oliver
IT by Stephen King (audiobook)
I am happy with my selections for October, as they encompass a range of genres, giving me a little break from crimes and thrillers, as much as I love them. I am excited for Halloween and will be recommending the scariest books I have ever read, along with finishing IT (only 10 hours left!) and might even re-watch and do a movie review in conjunction with the holiday. My biggest question is… which books do I take to Lisbon?!
