I finished 16 books in September.

  • The author breakdown was 12 female and and 3 male.  (I read one female author twice).
  • There were 11 white authors, 1 black author, and 5 Asian authors.
  • Thirteen of the books were fiction and three were nonfiction.
  • I listened to three audiobooks.
  • The books were set in Ireland, England, the U.S., Canada, Vietnam, Italy, Iran, Singapore, Discworld, and a few made trips around the world or didn’t exist in a real place at all.  Yes, Discworld is a real place.

Most emotional

I read The Shepherd’s Crown.  I cried.  Review coming sometime when I can talk coherently about it.

Coming Up


My favorite book blogger event of the year!  I’ll be posting reviews and author spotlights.


I’m posting for this on October 4.  There are some serious prizes being given out.  It starts on October 1.


Next month I’m co-hosting the Monthly Wrap Up with Nicole from Feed Your Fiction Addiction.  Hope you join us.

  1. Visiting your blog for the first time and I have to say this is such a great series! I really like the breakdown of who the authors are where the stories take place. Sometimes I don’t even think about those things, but it’s interesting to look at and think about what you’re reading. I’m a nonfiction kind of person so Sisters In Law looks like an awesome book. I’ll be adding it to my list!

  2. that’s a wonderfully diverse list — and I am so jealous. I wish I knew how to time manage to get more reading done.

    1. I usually tell people that I manage it because I don’t do much else. 🙂 I listen to audiobooks in the car while commuting and during my lunch or whenever doing something else mindless. I read before bed, in the bathtub, and before work for a bit. Little bits add up.

    1. The other Tiffany Aching books have to be read before The Shepherd’s Crown in order to really understand it. I’m reviewing the book tomorrow.

  3. As I read this, I was wondering so many things. “Who’s Esmerelda Weatherwax? What are these blogging events? Why does the uniform change from purple to green? How many of the books I read this month were by POC?” But one thing was certain–Discworld IS a place, for sure!

    1. Granny Weatherwax is a witch in Terry Pratchett’s books.
      The uniform can be whatever fabulous color it wants! I don’t know the answer to that one.
