September in Review

I am finding leisure reading time harder and harder to come by. The enormous stack of library books often does not get read right away - or at all - before they have to be returned. While I still read a good number this past month, I am feeling very busy with school and taking kids here and there so that some night I am not able to read until I go to bed at night, where I promptly fall asleep.

Here's September's books:

1. 22 Britannia Road by Amanda Hodgkinson
2. The Art of Forgetting by Camille Noe Pagan
3. Killing Kate by Julie Kramer
4. The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate by Jacqueline Kelly
5. Alice on her Way by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor
6. The Alchemy of Loss by Abigail Carter
7. The Homecoming of Samuel Lake by Jenny Wingfield
8. The End of Everything by Megan Abbott
9. Breadcrumbs by Anne Ursu
10. The Grief of Others by Leah Hager Cohen
11. The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh
12. The Sacred Acre: The Ed Thomas Story by Mark Tabb
13. Sweet Jiminy by Kristin Gore
14. Girls in White Dresses by Jennifer Close
15. The Sixes by Kate White
16. The Luck of the Buttons by Anne Ylvisaker
17. The Most Dangerous Thing by Laura Lippman
18. Gooney Bird on the Map by Lois Lowry
19. One Summer by David Baldacci
20. A Year Without Autumn by Liz Kessler

14 of the 20 books were adult, 6 were young adult/middle grade
2 were non fiction, 18 were fiction
2 were written by males, 18 by females
7 were from my shelves, 13 were from the library
1 was on my kindle
2 were read from the Read From Your Shelves challenge

I have several books I am in the midst of right now, so I am looking forward to finishing some up in October, and for the many sitting here that have been waiting in my library stacks.

Tina, I think the amount of books you read is just awesome. Wish I could read so fast. Always love hearing what you think about your latest books or your girls or your job or whatnot. Have a great weekend!
