This was a weird reading month for me.  I’d binge for a few days and then not pick up anything for a while. 

I read 14 books this month.

Fiction

 Nonfiction

The books were:

  • Set in England, India, the United States, Turkmenistan, Canada, and an imaginary Caribbean Island
  • 3 audiobooks and 1 graphic novel

The authors were:

  •  11 unique female authors and 4 male authors
  •  1 South Asian woman, 3 white men, 5 white women, 1 Latina, 1 Japanese woman, 1 African- American woman, and 1 African-American man

Reading All Around the World challenge from Howling Frog Books

  • Read a nonfiction book about the country – or
  • Read fiction written by a native of the country or someone living for a long time in the country.

After doing so well last month, I didn’t add anything this month.

  1. Wow you read 14 books! And I enjoyed the diverse selection you read. I just finished a novel set in Thailand and enjoyed pieces of culture through that book. Books can take you anywhere from your favorite reading seat.

  2. You read so much! I’m jealous! I just borrowed A Gentleman’s Guide To Vice and Virtue, I’ve heard a lot about it and I hope I enjoy it.

    I hope you have a wonderful October.

  3. I have been looking for the Reading Around the World Challenge since December. Another blog had the concept but never updated about what happened in 2016 and what would happen in 2017, but I’m happy to see it alive and well. I wish I had found it sooner. Holy cow! You’ve read a lot of books set in so many different places. Kudos to you!

    What did you think of A Bride’s Story, Vol. 2? I’ve only read the first volume, and I liked that one.
