September Wrapup

I can't believe September is over already!!  It went by so fast but I am really excited for October and all of the upcoming fall holidays.  September was another slow reading month for me.  I read 7 books as well as the first 300 pages in Les Miserables.  This puts me at a total of 92 books read for the year which is approximately 50 less than I had finished at this point last year.  I am definitely not reading as much this year as I was last year but I still feel pretty good about where I stand.  I only have 3 challenge books left to finish in addition to finishing Les Mis so I will definitely complete all of my challenges this year.

I set a bunch of goals for myself at the beginning of this month and I'll be honest, I didn't meet very many of them.  A lot of unexpected things happened in September, some good and some bad, and it was hard to make time for everything I wanted to do.  The hubs started a fantastic new job (YAY) and I hurt my knee to the point where I had to step out of running a 1/2 marathon in October (BOO).  I am completely okay with the fact that a lot of my goals were unmet because I did meet the reading goals that I set for myself and I am hoping October will go a little more smoothly than September.  I am excited for October because I will be participating in Dewey's 24 hour Read-a-thon for the first time to help me get through some books I have been putting off for a while.

Anyway, here is what I read in October.  Reviews will be posted for the last three books in the next week or so.

1.) The Boleyn Wife by Brandy Purdy
2.) The Queen's Sorrow by Suzannah Dunn
3.) The Highlander's Touch by Karen Marie Moning
4.) The Sisters who Would Be Queen by Leanda de Lisle
5.) The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton
6.) Jane: The Woman Who Loved Tarzan by Robin Maxwell
7.) The Voices of the Dead: Stalin's Great Terror in the 1930s by Hiroaki Kuromiya

How was September for you?  Did you meet your reading goals for the month?
