Monthly Wrap Up #9

So it’s safe to say that I’ve surpassed last year’s total of 47 books read; I’m currently sitting at 57, which also beats 2018’s total of 50.

It goes without saying this wouldn’t have happened if 2020 had been like any other year, though I’m pleased by how much reading I’ve managed to get done.

I finally got round to reading The Handmaid’s Tale, which although frightening, was really interesting and I enjoyed it. I’ve got a copy of The Testaments so I’ll be reading that soon, to find out what happened next.

And I also managed to read The Thursday Murder Club, which is a book I’ve wanted to read ever since I started seeing reviews of it on my feed back in September- and I loved it, so I’m looking forward to the second in the series.

October Reads
Prayer for the Dead (Inspector McLean, #5)
Camino Winds (Camino Island #2)
First Class Murder (Murder Most Unladylike Mysteries, #3)
The Handmaid's Tale (The Handmaid's Tale, #1)
A Dark Matter
The Thursday Murder Club (Thursday Murder Club, #1)

What I’m Currently Reading:

I’ve read A LOT of murder mysteries this year so I thought it was about time I tried something different. I loved I am Pilgrim by Terry Hayes, so I decided to give the Jack Reacher series a go since they sound vaguely similar.

Killing Floor (Jack Reacher, #1)


I read a lot of books and get emotionally invested in the lives of fictional characters.

  1. Congrats on beating your record for last year!! Ah I really agree on The Handmaid’s tale being frightening… I had a hard time believing it was fictional and that was chilling… do let us know how The Testaments goes for you!

    1. Thank you! πŸ™‚ I haven’t read any reviews of Testaments but I’m excited to get reading.

      Have you read Vox? It’s a little similar to Handmaid’s Tale but the women are restricted with how many words they can say each day- I read that first, which is why I don’t think I was as creeped out by Handmaid as I would have been otherwise.

      1. Ooh I haven’t read Vox… that sounds so chillingly intriguing my goodness I will definitely give that a go, thank you for the recommendation!
