Monthly Round Ups

October Reads.

Another month, another lot of books to gather together. I had quite a few review commitments this month, this dictated a lot of the books I was choosing to read. I’ve been looking guiltily at my huge number of unread books – I’ve decided for the rest of 2014 I’m going to try and concentrate a bit more on these books rather than agreeing to yet more review commitments. This will of course only work if I stop browsing Net Galley!

I read 17 books in October, half of these were picture books. I had a week away from home so I’m not surprised my total books read is a little lower this month. The books in order of reading were:

  • Iron Sky: Dread Eagle by Alex Woolf.
  • Where the Poppies Now Grow by Hilary Robinson and Martin Impey.
  • The Dinosaur That Pooped Christmas by Tom Fletcher and Dougie Poynter, and Garry Parsons.
  • Pea’s Book of Birthdays by Susie Day.
  • The Seafront Tea Rooms by Vanessa Greene.
  • The Lost Journals of Benjamin Tooth by Mackenzie Crook.
  • The Windvale Sprites by Mackenzie Crook.
  • Noodle’s Knitting by Sheryl Webster and Caroline Pedlar.
  • Marmaduke the Very Different Dragon by Rachel Valentine and Ed Eaves.
  • The Very Cranky Bear by Nick Bland.
  • Harold Finds a Voice by Courtney Dicmas.
  • TimeBomb by Scott K. Andrews.
  • Famous in Love by Rebecca Serle.
  • The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E. Smith.
  • Woozy the Wizard: A Spell to Get Well by Elli Woollard and Al Murphy.
  • The Great Balloon Hullaballoo by Peter Bently and Mei Matsuoka.
  • Standing in for Lincoln Green by David Mackintosh.

My favourite books in October were Pea’s Book of Birthdays and The Geography of You and Me. Both reminded me in their own ways just why it is that I love contemporary fiction so much.

What were your favourite books in October? What are you excited to read in November?
