Sum-Up Sunday

September & October

No, you did not read the title of this post wrong – I’m just very, very behind on my Sum-Up Sunday posts & have made the decision to be easier on myself by doubling up for this post. September was an average reading month for me but October was bloody brilliant.

Audiobook Update:
The last time I updated y’all on my audiobook status I was listening to Visions of Zarua by Suzanne Rogerson; since then I have also listened to Gotta’ Get Theroux This by Louis Theroux, & I’m now listening to Elephant Moon by John Sweeney! Louis’ autobiography was fab & I really enjoyed listening to him speak – Elephant Moon is also really good but it’s a war story, so it’s good in a different way. In September I listened to 13hrs & 40mins worth of books, & then in October I managed even more with 20hrs & 41mins!
