September Book Wrap-Up

Officially fall, and that means, pumpkins, apples, winter squash and cooler nights.  Mysteries and thrillers are favorite fall reads for me. How about you does your reading taste change a bot with the seasons?  I thought that September was a good month for books.

I read/reviewed 
  • (3) cookbooks
  • (1) fashion book
  • (1) kids book
  • (1) YA book
  • (1) Memior
  • (8) fiction books 
 (2) Favorite Fiction Books
October Reading Contenders
(have you read any of these?)


  1. Your lists are always so impressive, especially to those of us with challenges finding the time to read more!

  2. What a great list. A cornucopia of lovely reads.

  3. I really enjoyed The Book of Someday. I've got Bellman & Black on my October TBR list too. Seems fitting for this time of year!

  4. Great month! Nice to see more cookbooks there!
    Happy October reading!

  5. Great month! I can't wait to read several of those new releases, especially Wally Lamb, Jhumpa Lahiri, and Donna Tartt.

    I was going to try your apple cake pie recipe today, but ran out of time... next weekend for sure!

  6. Yaaay for Doctor Sleep! I own it now, am just waiting for a stretch of time so I can sit down and read it. It looks very good, I've already snuck a look at the first page or so. Glad you enjoyed it so much. I like the look of the 365 slow cooker meals, which I am interested in doing more of. Is it out yet, as you had a galley you looked at?

  7. You've read a good mix of genres. My reading varies on my mood and not on the seasons although I do like a good beach read in the summer.

  8. I've read Burial Rites - will be interested to see what you think. I kind of didn't fit into mainstream opinion!

  9. My reading seems to slow down as the holidays approach. I think I enjoy summer time reads the most. I like your pumpkin image.

  10. I am going to bake that cake! Fall inspires me to bake! I make pumpkin cookies and pies.I have read so many good books this summer. I am looking for something great for my next read.

  11. The Lowland is on my wish list. Lahiri is one of my favorite authors. Hope your October books are wonderful reads, Diane!

  12. Sounds like you had another great reading month! I'm very curious about the Donna Tartt book as well so I'll definitely be looking for your review of that one!

  13. It is funny how our tastes in books change with the seasons - I like to dig into meatier titles as Fall and winter approach.

  14. Wow, you got through Doctor Sleep fast - I am impressed! I don't normally change my reading habits with the seasons but another favorite book blogger (GirlXOXO) just reminded me about reading something spooky for October, so I will try to fit that in with my book group books, etc.

    Enjoy your October reading!

  15. You read a nice variety of books last month. I save the creepy books for RIP in the fall and tend to reach for more cookbooks now that it's cooler, but otherwise my reading stays varied year round. I'm still listening to Doctor Sleep and have Bellman & Black coming up this month.

  16. wow, quite a yummy list! here is my own September recap:
