September Wrap Up & Update

Well hello! It's been a few weeks - oops! I got married last Saturday (9/21) so the weeks leading up to the wedding were full of last minute appointments followed by my honeymoon to Disney World & Universal Studios.

I was only able to finish four books this month (I think that's my yearly low):

  • The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern (review)
  • Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury (review)
  • The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente (review forthcoming!)
  • The Witches by Roald Dahl (review)

I am currently 60% through The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova and I plan on finishing prior to October 14, as part of the read along with The Estella Society.  I am also still powering through Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte and I have about 1/2 of the book left.

For my yearly Goodreads Challenge, I have read 64 of 80 books (original goal 60 books) and I am 5 books ahead of schedule.  With four months left of the year I am sure I can read four books per month to meet that goal.

I also happened to purchase, ahem, TWENTY ONE books this month! Which is insane and too many to list here, but I am looking forward to reading them.  They should provide excellent material for Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon taking place on October 12!

So tell me, what have you read this month?
