Happy Fall Everyone!
I tore through 8 books in September. Lots of travel time, four 14 Day library books, and beach time made it be a very productive reading month.
The books I read in September were:
What She Ate by Laura Shapiro
Ghosted by Rosie Walsh
Who is Vera Kelly? by Rosalie Knecht
My Year of Rest and Relaxation by Ottessa Moshfegh
The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen
The Incendiaries by R.O. Kwon
The Daisy Children by Sofia Grant
I was surprised by What She Ate. It sent me on a spiral into learning more about Eva Braun and Third Reich. I’ve picked up a few books on the topic. I’m pretty sure Kneckt stole a Siena College professors’ life story for her novel. I’ll be writing reviews of the books and posting in the upcoming weeks.
After the Albany Book Festival I’m feeling inspired. Hearing all the authors speak about their work was energizing. It reminded me why I begin this pet project. Reading is important. Reading is thinking. The more people who read the better off we are as a community. If I can help contribute to someone else picking up another book or reading a little bit more, then the time I invested in Literary Lady is worth it.
