I’ve gone pretty crazy on the book purchasing in the last couple of weeks. My to be read pile is now officially a tower which is almost the same height as me (I’m roughly 162cm for reference). I’ve also signed up to NetGalley recently, another source of books which has, until now of course, gone unnoticed by me. I’ve basically got books coming out of my ears, so much so that I’m having to plan ahead in my reading. So I thought I’d share with you all what I plan on reading this month (although depending how quickly I finish these, there will be a couple of additions to the below), as well as some upcoming reviews.
WHAT I’M READING This month I’m hoping to finish Christopher Paolini’s ‘Inheritance Series’. At the moment I’m reading book #3, Brisingr, and towards the end of the month I’ll hopefully get to Inheritance. Sandwiched between these two, I have a couple of NetGalley reads – The Girl in the Photograph (which I’m reading at the moment and loving) and Liar’s Bench, which is scheduled for release later this month.
UPCOMING REVIEWS Inside the O’Briens by Lisa Genova – This is the latest novel from the author of Still Alice. I’m really excited to share this book with you guys. I finished it a couple of weeks ago and I’ve been thinking about it ever since – it’s a very special book.
The Violet Bakery Cookbook by Claire Ptak – I love cake you guys. Actually, I love all baked goods and sweet things. So I’m really excited to review this book as I’ll be testing some recipes. I have to be thorough in my review process you know!
Eldest by Christopher Paolini – This is book #2 in ‘The Inheritance Cycle’. I enjoyed this one a lot more than the first book in this series. The end was particularly exciting and had me covering my face with the book when I was reading it on the train. I’m a very involved reader.
In the Shadow of Winter by Lorna Gray – I do enjoy a good mystery and I must have really enjoyed this one as I read the book in about a day.
I also hope to post reviews for Brisingr, The Girl in the Photograph, and Liar’s Bench. Long story short, I won’t be leaving the house much this month. Good thing it’s starting to feel like autumn in Sydney at the moment – cold weather means I have a good excuse for staying in!
What are you planning on reading this month? Something new or an old favourite?
