HOW IS IT ALREADY SEPTEMBER? This is not okay. Not at all. This year has just moved so fast – it only feels like last week that I started uni and I’m now in my second year! Though, actually, September is cool. I’m good with September. It’s the month that knitwear becomes semi-acceptable and being outdoors is beautiful, and very peaceful (mainly because kids are back at school). So I actually like September, I just don’t like how quickly it’s come around.
On to bookish things. My September TBR. I’m going away on a wee holiday with my grandparents on the 5th – so I’m hoping to do a bit of reading then. Some of these choices are based on goals I’m going to set myself for the next year (as I’ve decided to work to my academic calendar as, with uni, it just works better for me. Also, I tend to stick to mid-year resolutions!)
So. The 4 ‘real’ books I want to read this month:
As per my decision to try and read 1 Penguin English Library classic a month, this month I’ve picked The Tenant of Wildfell Hall. I’ve wanted to read some Anne Bronte for a long while, having read both Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights from her better known siblings – I feel that I’ve neglected her!
Notes on a Scandal is a new book to my collection, but I feel somewhat eager to read this (mainly because I’ve got the movie to watch and have every intention to watch it while on holiday, but want to read the book first).
Murakami is an author I’ve only recently really started to enjoy. I’m going to endeavour to read more from him, and approach the books that in the past I’ve not really got in to.
My fourth must read book is I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith. This is a book I’ve wanted to read for a while after hearing about it from Lesley at WordsofaReader on YouTube. Sounds right up my alley and, also, it fits in to a couple of categories on the HTV Reading Challenge this year! Result.
Finally, I have one e-book I want to read which is for the book club I’m part of and that is We Were Liars by E. Lockhart. This is a book that has been about in the blogosphere for a while and seems to be a really popular one. I’m really excited to get my ‘hands’ on this!
These obviously aren’t the only books I’m hoping to read, they’re just the minimum I’m aiming for! With uni not starting up until the 22nd, I have the majority of the month to do reading and also I’ve finally realised I can read on the bus (still not mastered reading in a car though, odd) so that’s about an hour and a half a day and two buses that I can do a good lump of reading in!
What are you all hoping to read this September?
