Monthly Breakdown: 

Print: 4
Ebook: 5
Audio: 9

Mystery: 15
Fiction: 1
Nonfiction: 1

Favorite Book of the Month:

The Night She Disappeared by Lisa Jewell - I forgot how much I enjoyed her books and this one kept me absolutely hooked.

A Death in Door County by Annelise Ryan - I was a little nervous about this one because it's a touch outside my comfort zone but it was an absolute delight!

Least Favorite Book:

Heiresses: The Lives of the Million Dollar Babies by Laura Thompson
- I didn't dislike this one but it was a little drier and more about heiresses overall than a more personal look and specific heiresses.

Where My Bookish Travels Have Taken Me This Month:

In the US I visited Wisconsin for the first time this year.

Internationally, I visited England, France and Ireland.  

It was a fairly quiet bookish travel month as almost all the books I read seemed to be set in California and North Carolina for some reason.

How was your reading in September?


  1. I like how you mention where you traveled via books. I have been in England book-wise lately but just finished a cozy set in France. Love Lisa Jewell.

  2. I have read a few of Lisa Jewell's books but now I leave them for the true mystery/thriller readers. My great number of audio, I do think they enhance a book when read well. Then it makes me love the book even more. At present Lessons in Chemistry which is a much hyped book is going really well for me on audio. Loving it.

  3. My daughter heads back to Ireland on the 19th for a vacay. Beautiful place! Fantastic job with books! Happy spooky season!

  4. The Night She Disappeared looks good, I may add it to my list.

  5. You had a great month. I liked A Death in Door County too. I didn't know what to expect but it was a good one.

  6. I can't wait to read A Death in Door Country. And that Lisa Jewell novel sounds really good, too. :)

  7. I still want to read a Lisa Jewel book. One day I'll stop requesting so many books and I'll have time!

  8. 18 books sounds great to me! And keeping track of your (virtual) travels is a really cool idea.
