I need to get back to The Doomsday Book, Lola's Secret by Monica McInerney


  1. You've had a great two months! I'm doing so bad on challenges right now that I keep acting like I haven't joined any! ;-) I hope October is a great month for you.

    1. Thanks Vasilly! I have a few big books coming up this month so it will look a little less impressive at the end of this month I think.

  2. Wow, that is an impressive two months! Do you still review every book you read? If so, I don't envy you your stack of books to review still!

    Can't wait to chat DOOM with you :)

    1. No, I review what I review these days! If I suddenly decided to change that now my review backlog is going to be HUGE!

      I have gone back to Doom now so should be ready in the next couple of days.

  3. Looks like you loved most of the books you read over the past 2 months which is great! And way to rock those challenges.

    1. I just have one challenge that I actually need to make some progress on over the next couple of months.

  4. I have Lola's Secret coming up soon for a tour, too. And love the Outlander series on audio - am looking forward to relistening to the last few when the next book comes out. :)

    1. Gosh, if you are going to relisten to the whole series you better start now!

  5. wow! you had a great two months. There are few on that list I've been wanting to read, such as Monster Calls.

  6. Well done on the reading and getting through the challenges. It's almost a pity you can't really sign up for a challenge twice!

    1. I think I am happier over achieving on the challenges than joining twice! lol
