I need to get my reviewing mojo back! In the pile of books sitting beside my laptop are some absolutely brilliant novels I read over the summer, but haven’t felt able to write about – yet! Sometimes I really struggle to get started when drafting a book review. Do you ever get periods like that? Luckily, I’ve not lost my joy for reading – passing 100 books read so far this year at the end of September, which is where I am usually.
I know it finished at the start of September, but I forgot to tell you how I did with my 20 Books of Summer – I managed 11 out of 20 – which, given that they were all books from my TBR wasn’t bad. You can see my list of twenty with the links to the 11 I read and reviewed here.
Earlier this morning it was the annual charity book sale at a local church hall (St Mary Magdalen, Barrow Rd, Shippon – open until 4pm) – and below is my haul. I was quite restrained today but am delighted with my tenner’s worth – especially the three books at the bottom – it will be wonderful to browse the wonderful photography and revisit those eras (I hasten to add, I wasn’t alive in the 1950s!).
