Re: What did you read in SEPTEMBER?

  • The Stranger by Albert Camus
    Unmade by Sarah Rees Brennan
    More Than Exes by Elizabeth Briggs
    Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater
    The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

    I'm in the middle of Never Let Me Go and The Dream Thieves right now, but I won't finish either of them by tonight. Ho hum.

    That's 36 books for me this year. My goal is 52, so I have to do 6 a month to get caught up. That's looking dicey, but I really need to try to make it. Bah.

    I will finish City of Lost Souls (Mortal Instruments #5) by Cassandra Clare at some point today.

    that will put me at 95 books toward my goal of 100.  
    90 books in 2015?
  • I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson 4 stars
    The Beautiful Ashes by Jeaniene Frost I haven't rated this one, but it would probably be 1 or 2 stars

    I'm listening to Shadow and Bone  by Leigh Bardugo and reading The Raven Boys  by Maggie Stiefvater, but I seriously doubt I will finish either of them today.  Maybe Shadow and Bone if people would leave me alone and that isn't likely.

    I didn't set a goal for this year, which is a good thing because I would not be meeting it.

    I've finished 177/210. I know I'm ahead of schedule but not how far ahead.
