September, that meant going back to the office most of the time and less corona measures. But also some sunny days and the cycling world championships in my city :D. So yes, this was a great month! I even managed to reach my reading challenge (in September yes, I also don’t know what got into me).
It’s an easy month to recap. Lolita was my 35th book of the year and so I surpassed my Goodreads reading challenge. I already can tell you this will be my best reading year ever. Thanks covid 😷, thanks bad weather ☔︎, thanks failed holidays… and thank God for books 😅🙏.
To celebrate I started a really big one. I love Ken Follett, but his books are heavy in pages. ‘World without end’ proved the perfect medieval escape during this busy month. ‘The collector’s daughter’ was a review copy of a much anticipated author for me. I read it during my train rides and enjoyed it. But maybe I had expected a bit more? I’ll definitely try another Gill Paul!
Number of pages read: 1.915 pages
Number of books finished: 3
Favorite read: World without end
Centuries visited: 14th century and 20th century
Countries visited: England, America, Italy and Egypt
Currently reading: The damask rose by Carol Mcgrath (and loving it)
Next up: I hope to grab ‘Revelation’ at the library and I’m looking for my next classic
- A thousand ships by Nathalie Haynes
- Captive queen by Alison Weir
- The scarlet contessa by Jeanne Kalogridis
Added to my TBR
- The handfasted wife as I want to try some more books of McGrath
- Matrix by Lauren Groff because it’s about the 12th century (not the kind of author I was expecting this as a setting from, but it sounds promising)
What’s the longest book you have read so far this year?
