I feel ancient saying this, but why does time have to fly!? I can’t believe it’s October already! This means it’s the last semester ever for me and between freaking out over writing my thesis and looming unemployment we’ll see where that will leave my fun reading.
Here’s what I read in September:
Frenchman’s Creek (Daphne DuMaurier), for Jo’s readalong. My third book by DuMaurier and I’m already looking forward to reading My Cousin Rachel.
Ten Little Herrings (L. C. Tyler) is a super fun cosy crime and an homage and parody of classic mysteries. Hope I’ll manage a quick post about it this week.
I read Strangers (Taichi Yamada) for Bellezza’s Japanese lit challenge which was wonderfully eerie and makes me want to try so much more Japanese literature.
The Case of the Man Who Died Laughing (Tarquin Hall) is the second Vish Puri book, the Indian Poirot. I had as much fun with it as with the first instalment, maybe a bit more as it was more lighthearted. I hope there’ll be more of Vish Puri’s investigations.
Little Hands Clapping (Dan Rhodes) was weird and wonderful, though I do think that most books advertised as strange are much more conventional than they may at first appear.
I still have a pile of books on my nightstand, from my last LL, so that and uni will keep me busy this month. I’m also reading the truly wonderful Sita’s Ramayana, a gift from my amazing friend Vishy.
What is everyone planning on reading this month?
