Hello everybody, and happy October! I had an insanely busy and stressful September, so I apologise for being absent for a lot of the month. It was also my birthday, which was the least stressful part of month. I have such a huge backlog of reading that I didn't get any more to add to that huge pile but I did receive some book-related delights - 'Love and Friendship' and 'Pride & Prejudice & Zombies' on blu ray. I saw 'Love and Friendship' in the cinema but I haven't seen P&P&Z yet.
When I am really stressed I find it a struggle to read, which is a real shame as I am sure it would help me feel better. Between getting back into the routine of the children going back to school, additional childcare to sort, numerous medical appointments, two job interviews and one of my cats having an injury that required her tail to be amputated I had such a stressful month! I am starting a new job on Monday, so October has the potential to be quite stressful too - hopefully not though :) I am hoping that I will get my reading mojo back, so here is what I have lined up for this month.
I have some blog tours stopping by during October. I'll be reading Beau North and Brooke West's book, 'The Many Lives of Fitzwilliam Darcy' for my stop on the tour. This book sounds intriguing from the blurb, picking up after Darcy's failed proposal. He just wants to put it all behind him, but getting back to everything he holds dear could prove challenging. I look forward to reading this one.
group read if I can make the time.
Obviously October is the proper month for a spooky or paranormal read so if I can, I'll try and fit in some seasonal reading too.
What do you have lined up for the month? Anything Autumnal or chosen with Hallowe'en in mind? I'd love to find out what you're reading too; let me know in the comments!
