September in Review

As always I borrowed the month in review post from Lily's Bookshelf, because she's awesome. 

Books Read:
Brave New World  - Huxley (review)
Running with Scissors - Burroughs (review) 
Coco Channel & Igor Stavinsky - Greenhalgh (review)
The Cid - Corneille (review)
The Night Bookmobile - Niffenegger (review)
The Pope of Greenwich Village -  Patrick (stay tuned for my review!)

Total Number of Books Read This Month: 
 5 and a short graphic novel

Total Number of Books Read This Year: 46

Most Anticipated:
Brave New World

Biggest Let Down:
Running with Scissors

Favorite Read:
oco Channel & Igor Stavinsky 

Overall Reflection: September didn't turn out to be a great reading month for me. I did get 5 books read, but just barely. In fact I finished The Pope of Greenwich Village midday on the 30th.  Instead of dwelling on the lack of motivation that was my September, I'm looking ahead to the possibilities of October.  I just started Faulkner's As I Lay Dying and have a review copy of Moonlight in Odessa, both of which i'm eager to get through, so I'm hoping that's enough start up motivation to make October a awesome book month!

i think your month looks great! I say as long as you read one book that you loved, it is always a good month!

I didn't exactly have the best month ever in September either. Here's to hoping that this month is better!
