The year in books - September

Well August came and went in what seemed to be a flash. With that went my reading too. I seem to have fallen off the reading horse. No books finished at all in August (unless you count hundreds and hundreds of children’s Oh OK).

Well a fresh new start for September. I’ve already said how much I love this time of year. This September I will be reading the new Ann Cleeves novel in the ‘Shetland’ series 'Thin Air' (which is published tomorrow) and also finishing the Elizabeth Jane Howard novel (it’s good so I don’t know what happened to me!) I started in August.

Once again joining in with Laura and the Year in Books.


  1. There are month like that! You were busy at work and you are preparing your older daughter for school, the weather was great for large parts of the month, all good reasons for not reading as much as you usually do. Happy reading! Cx

  2. Funnily enough I read loads during August. My sleep suffered as a result though! I have four on the go this month. I haven't done a post yet. My blogging mojo has taken a knock. My Mum raves about the Shetland series of books.

  3. I'm on Elizabeth Jane Howard too - she's a great writer but I do find my inner 'reading voice' sounds awfully like Penelope Wilton, the narrator on the Radio 4 dramatisation.
    And children's books do count - they're great to read!
    You'll get back into your books again. We readers need them - they're an integral part of who we are :)

  4. I didn't read much in August either but I've already read two books in September! It's easy to fall off but fairly easy to get back on, I find. I hope you have a marvelous, book-filled month. :)

  5. You must let us know what the Shetland book is like - I loved the BBC Shetland tv series and have quite fancied trying the books too. Have a great weekend. x

  6. Haven't read any Anne Cleeves - must give her a go! For some odd reason I have yet to figure out I didn't read as much as I normally do this summer. xxx

    1. I of course meant "why I didn't read as much..." I guess tiredness is kicking in already! :-)
