September 2017 wrap-up
Not too many books read this month, but a good average for my usual standard.
Here is what I read this past month:
6 in print
= with 1,559 pages, that is: 51 pages/day
+ 2 audiobooks
= with 8H54, that is: 17 mn/day.
5 in mystery:
- Merle, by Angela Wren – ebook
- The Frenchman, by Lise McClendon – ebook
- Glass Houses, by Louise Penny
- The Hidden Keys, by André Alexis – audiobook
- Requiem in Yquem, by Jean-Pierre Alaux and Noel Balen – ebook
- The Golden Key, by George MacDonald – audiobook
- Sourdough, by Robin Sloan – ebook
- Icon, by Georgia Briggs
My favorites in September
A few notes:
It was really hard to pick up 2 favorites this month. I also enjoyed a lot The Hidden Keys, and the much expected Sourdough, by the author of Mr Penumbra’s 24-hour Bookstore
As you know, I rarely read dystopia or YA, but Icon is UN-BE-LIE-VA-BLE: it was highly recommended by several people at Church. It is very unique, as it is is a REAL dystopia and YA novel, but with Christian Orthodox themes! So so well done!!
Reading Challenges recap

Blog recap in September
I took part in Bout of Books 20. It was a success for me, with lots of pages read, and tons of bloggers visited, as I decided to volunteer as an Expert this year, which consists basically in encouraging and congratulating the participants as they go along
I organized 5 giveaways. The one for October at France Book Tours is now available.
I celebrated my 7th blogiversary on September 29. The winner will be posted on Wednesday
