In September I did a lot of digital reading. Not that it makes a difference, it’s just that usually I find myself drawn to physical books, so it was surprising to look over my list and see that only three of my reads were physical copies (House of Lies, Echo Valley and The Vanishing of Audrey Wilde, if you’re curious…)
Here is the aforementioned list for September:
- The Break by Marian Keyes – read here
- Demi-Gods by Eliza Robertson – read here
- The Lies Within by Jane Isaac – read here
- Echo Valley by JC Matheson – read here
- The Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman – read here
- House of Lies by E.V. Seymour – read here
- The Vanishing of Audrey Wilde by Eve Chase – read here
I gave not one, but two of these books 5/5 – The Break and The Vanishing of Audrey Wilde – very different in tone and story, but both so worth a read. After last month’s slightly-disappointing Alice Hoffman book, I thought I’d give her another go with her new release, The Rules of Magic, but I was left feeling the same sort of dissatisfaction at the end of this book – not to say it was a terrible read, she is clearly just not the author for me. So, it was quite an up-and-down month overall, but an enjoyable one.
October has started off with a cracking thriller (so far, I’m only about 1/4 of the way through) – The Snowman by Jo Nesbø and I’m currently listening to a George Orwell classic on audiobook. A varied selection to kick start this month with – really looking forward to seeing how they both pan out. Look out for the reviews!
