Happy October! Last month, I crossed the threshold of reading 100 books - a number I previously wouldn't have thought possible! I've always been a reader, but up until the last couple of years, my books/year total hovered around 80 - which is still A LOT of books! But the last couple of years have been banner years for me - maybe because off the pandemic and having even fewer social plans that usual? Who knows. We'll see if this pace continues into 2022!
I read 10 books in September and split the out into 3 groups: excellent, great, not for me.
The Other Black Girl was a bit of a slog for me but I kept reading because I knew there was a twist in the first 10% of the book and I wanted to see what happened. I don't know that it was worth sticking with it, though. I am the outlier in not enjoying this book, though, so take my opinion with a grain of salt. One Last Stop was enjoyable but at least 100 pages longer than it should have been which made the book drag on and on for me!
The Boys' Reads:
I didn't take any pictures of the boys reading this month! Paul has been enjoying fall/Halloween books. I started to take them out at the beginning of September. I probably should have waited until we were further into the month! I requested a bunch of Halloween and fall-themed books from the library so will pick those up next week to supplement our collection. Room on the Broom and Pumpkin Soup are 2 favorites in our house! Will is starting to enjoy Lift-the-Flap books, like Dear Zoo. But Baby Faces and Good Morning Baby, which have pictures of other babies, remain his favorites and elicit the biggest smiles!
We also did a book swap with our neighbors so it's been fun to read some different books! We exchanged about 15-20 books!
Did you read anything good in September?
