September, what a glorious month you were.
I finished 8 books. And, the number would have been higher if I hadn't decided to pick up the 900-page brick in the last week (which I also have finished by now).
* The Night Circus by E. Morgenstern (RIP VIII)
* Villette by C. Bronte (Classics Club)
* The Well of Lost Plots by J. Fforde
* Gardens of the Moon by S. Erikson
* The Universe Versus Alex Woods by G. Extence
* Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling
* Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling
* The Unbearable Lightness of Being by M. Kundera (Classics Club)
That's 3483 pages. Three books were 500+ pages.
Since I rated all of those books with 4/5 or 5/5, with the exception of the first Harry Potter (which got 3/5), it got me thinking if I am the kind of reader that is just very generous or if I am just awesome at picking books to read. I kinda lean towards the latter, at least for this month, because there really aren't many random books among those. Okay, classics can be hit and miss - but The Unbearable Lightness of Being was a re-read, so I knew I like it, and Villette I was fairly certain I will like. I love Thursday Next books and Harry Potters are simply very well written. Alex Woods got a lot of praise from bloggers I trust, so I was fairly confident about that as well.
Also, right now I am reading The Turn of the Screw (for RIP VIII) and I am not really feeling it (about half way through), so possibly there will be a story rated 2 or so...
