Well, it’s been a little while since I last blogged! I didn’t intend to take a break but throughout August I barely read anything so I didn’t really have anything to blog about. September has a bit of a health scare (all turned out fine though, thankfully) followed by a nasty sinus infection which all affected my reading. My reading mojo seems to be on its way back now and I finished twelve books in September and all of them were very good.
My September highlight though isn’t reading related, it’s music related. Last week my husband and I went to see Genesis and they were incredible! We booked the tickets before the first lockdown and so it’s been a long time coming. We weren’t sure whether we would go with the Covid risk but at the last minute we decided we didn’t want to miss it and we’re both so glad we went. Once we got to our seats and Genesis started the show it just felt like two and a half hours of pure escapism.
Anyway, on to the books!
Here are the books I read in September…
Small Pleasures by Clare Chambers
Nothing Can Hurt You by Nicola Maye Goldberg
The Pact by Sharon Bolton
Crippled by Frances Ryan
Illness as a Metaphor and AIDS and its Metaphor by Susan Sontag
The Power of Hope by Kate Garroway
Jews Don’t Count by David Baddiel
The Missing Girl by Jenny Quintana
I’m Thinking of Ending Things by Iain Reid
The Perfect Lie by Jo Spain
This Little Family by Ines Bayard
The Fell by Sarah Moss
How was September for you? I hope it was a good month full of fabulous books! 🙂

It is so good to see you back in the blogging world! I’m very jealous of the Genesis concert. Hope you have a good October.
Lovely to see you back Hayley, glad you’re feeling better! xx
Sorry to hear about your health scare, but thank goodness it all turned out well in the end. Jealous of you reading The Fell already – I love Sarah Moss and was very keen to get my mitts on it.
Welcome back and glad all is ok. What an interesting range of books – keen to read more Sontag myself!
So lovely to have you back – I particularly think of you on Wednesdays but didn’t want to intrude by messaging you if you were having a difficult time. What a lovely selection of books for September, I had a good one, too, including reading “Roots”!, and hope you have a good, strong and book-filled October.
Genesis!!! Oh. My. Wow!! Yes, I’d say fab concert!!
