My weekly post where I keep track of books I’ve read, books I’ve had to put aside, and books I’ve reviewed for the past week. Since September ended this week, I’ve also listed my progress in terms of reading challenges and books I’ve read.
September in Review:
Read/Listened To: 19 books
2011: 194 out of 200 books
Horror & Urban Fantasy: 27 books so far, goal has been met and exceeded
Nordic: 4 out of 11
Speculative Fiction: 20 books so far, goal has been met and exceeded
The bad news is I completely forgot about the Nordic Challenge this month. The good news is I still have time to get back to it and I’m very close to having read 200 books this year.
Anyway, this week I…
Boots by Angel Martinez – 3 Stars. A cute and quick M/M re-telling of “Puss in Boots.” I definitely enjoyed it and cared about the main characters, but I think parts of just didn’t work blend as well as others.
The Golden Haired Boy by Scarlet Blackwell – 4 Stars. A lovely, moody, and atmospheric piece of short M/M fiction. I really got lost in the overwhelming sadness and loneliness Johann felt. And I was profoundly relieved when he found happiness. I suppose the story was predictable in some ways, I loved the setting and I loved both of the main characters.
Creepella Von Cracklefur #1: The Thirteen Ghosts by Geronimo Stilton
The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson
