October was a pretty average reading month for me. Seven books read, all enjoyed, you can't ask for more than that.
50. A Discovery of Witches - Deborah Harkness
51. Hickory Dickory Dock - Agatha Christie
52. From the Depths edited by Mike Ashley
53. Hunter's Moon - Dana Stabenow
54. Black Diamond - Martin Walker
55. A Trick of the Light - Louise Penny
56. A Swiss Vendetta - Tracee De Hahn. To be reviewed.
The thing that sticks out for me is that there's no non-fiction this month and the one I'd just started I've put aside for the time being. Will have to do better than that next month. I've more or less majored on crime novels, surprise, surprise... five of those and two supernatural themed books. Sometimes you just have gorge on your favourite genre because nothing else will do, this is possibly because I've had a cold for a week and needed some comfort reading.
Favourite book? Well that would have to be this:
A Trick of the Light by Louise Penny. Superb, the series just gets better and better. I've already reserved the next book from the library.
And here's what I've been doing apart from reading:
2,000 pieces, Van Gogh's 'Starry Night' of course. Quite tricky. Make that very tricky...
And this one was a 1,000 piece American puzzle entitled 'Hummingbirds'.
I'm hoping November will be a quiet month. I don't mind if the weather is bad because settling down in my favourite chair in front of the open fire with a good book is sheer luxury. I call it 'hibernating'. Happy reading.
