Book Chat #6 - September 2020

What is this? Another sneaky post? Yep, It is that time when I do a round of the month and what I have been reading. It has been a nice, mixed bag this month. We've been to a wedding in Ireland where one of the guests was murdered, met the world's most famous boy wizard, proposed at Leap Year, solved a crime we didn't know existed, learnt about the mysterious Lantern Men and travelled through Canada and the Americas on a bike. Phew! It's been a busy one. Of course, I refer to the books I've read and reviewed this month....before you start dialling the Police. September has been a lovely month. Autumn has truly kicked in here and we've already witnessed our first frost. Bake-Off is back and this is a true slice of cosy heaven! So let's get started shall we?

Good Reads Challenge

56 out of 100 read. It's going ok. Although Good Reads in an attempt to motivate me has just told me I have 94 days left. Argghhhh!

To be Read

I think the RIBA award for architecture is probably on its way to me for the towering splendour that is my To be Read pile. I've got so many good books to read. If you add that onto the books I have on my kindle, well it's enormous. But I do have a week's holiday coming up, so think some will be tackled then.

Looking forward to....

All of the Autumn cosy TV - Strictly starts in earnest soon and I'm looking forward to continuing Great British Bake Off. I know this is a Book Blog, but I do adore these shows. I

I'm looking forward to Halloween and have a couple of scary books to read. The Stand is still winking at me from the blanket box. That is also a book that deserves its own RIBA Architecture award.

I do hope you are all keeping well and safe at the moment and please do let me know what you are enjoying at the moment.
