If you want to see how I’m doing with BEA 2015 books check here.

October 1: 10 books in September! Starting the month with The Truth Commission.

October 1: Okay, obviously I am not going to read 18 books this month. That’s nuts. Last month I was really strict about sticking to my proposed reading order. I’m going to try to do that this month BUT if I have to, I’m also okay with letting myself swap out categories (these all fit in specific categories for my personal reading including BEA or review books). If I get more “obligatory” reading I might also have to shake this up.

October 5: The Truth Commission was everything I hoped it would be and more. Possibly my favorite book of 2015. Onto Book of a Thousand Days.

October 13: I really enjoyed Book of a Thousand Days and City Love. I am very, very unsure about Uprooted guys.

October 18: I can’t do another Baba Yaga after Uprooted so bumping Last Night at the Circle Cinema up the list.

October 18: Well . . . that was a disappointment in the extreme.

October 25: After a bad run I am abandoning my scheduled reading to bump Passenger up the list.

October 31: Passenger is awesome. If I hadn’t been sick, I would have actually finished it in this month instead of carrying part of it over into November.
