TBR – October 2016

Alright October…. let’s see what’s in store for us? I’m excited because last month I finally finished reading Necronomicon…which was just under 900 pages, and now I feel like my TBR has been freed up to read…pretty much anything! Finishing such an intimidating book is really a weight off my shoulders, wow.

{MMD 2016 Reading Challenge}

In 2016 I’m taking part in the Modern Mrs Darcy Reading Challenge to complement my regular reading challenge. There are 12 distinct challenges, one for each month, which are intended to help structure your reading list across the year.

In October I’m choosing…

A book recommended to you by a librarian or bookseller: For this I’m choosing to read  Akarnae by Lynette Noni. Earlier this year I worked as a volunteer at an expo here in Melbourne where I helped out in a panel room that hosted a heap of different author Q & As and discussion sessions. Listening to the authors talk about their books made me want to buy ALL of them, but after stopping by the bookseller’s booth in the trade hall, I was recommended Akarnae :)
