September Wrap Up and Goals Check In #Goodreads #MountTBR #IdRatherBeReading #OldSchoolKidLit2018


Welcome to my (late) Goals Check In!

Challenge 1 : Goodreads 2018

Murder at Midnight, by Faith Martin, reviewed here

The Rock, by Robert Daws

The Crossing Places, by Elly Griffiths

He Said/She Said, by Erin Kelly, reviewed here

The Tainted Vintage, by Clare Blanchard, reviewed here

Death of an Old Girl, by Elizabeth Lemarchand, reviewed here

Still Waters, by Viveca Sten

Working Stiff, by Judy Melinek

As I said last month, I’ve achieved my Goodreads goal – I’m now at 82 books for the year (117%)! As usual, my thoughts on any book not reviewed on here can be found on Goodreads.

My book of the month for September goes to “Death of an Old Girl”.

Challenge 2 – Mount TBR

Both “The Rock” and “The Crossing Places” were on my shelves from last year, and I was determined to get them read before Morecambe and Vice as I knew both were appearing! More on the festival here. I’m up to 20 out of 24, so I’m roughly on track for this goal.

Challenge 3 – The 2018 Reading Challenge

I’ve managed to tick off another challenge for this – this time it’s “A Book Nominated for an Award in 2018”. He Said/She Said was nominated for Crime and Thriller Book of the year at the British Book Awards. I still have 4 challenges left – “Book that’s more than 500 pages”, “Banned book”, “Book by an author of a different race, ethnicity or religion than your own” and “Recommended by a librarian or indie bookseller” – so I’m still behind on this one.

Challenge 4 – Old School Kidlit

I’ve STILL not done anything more on this – so another 4 books to go!

How was your reading month?

  1. He Said / She Said was pretty good! I read it last year at some point.
    I have Still Waters on my kindle – even though it’s set during summer, for me these kind of books are just great to read during autumn. Something about nordic / scandinavian books that just feel very autumny.
