blurb
Redheadrambles
Quichotte | Salman Rushdie
post image

September Reads :- Almost the entire month spent chipping away at Ducks and it feels good to have that one done ✅. However my standout for September is the tagged book, from the Booker shortlist and I have already raved about that extensively. I enjoyed my time spent with the Atwoods but I think October needs to be a refocus on #ReadHarder another 6 books to go !

Cathythoughts I was wondering about Quichotte .... I‘d like to give it a go. Must read The Testaments as it‘s our next Bookclub book 1mo
Billypar I've been meaning to ask someone- have you read Don Quixote, and if so, is there a lot to appreciate in Quichotte as far as DQ references that make it a better reading experience? 1mo

thebluestocking You‘re a machine for making it through Ducks! 💙 1mo
Redheadrambles @billypar I had not read it but yes I would say if you had you would get even more out of this book but there is plenty to grapple with anyway- it is a mental workout! 1mo
Redheadrambles @thebluestocking i decided to tackle it at 25 pages a day and it took me a month - it‘s totally doable 😉 1mo
Billypar That makes sense- thanks! 'Mental workout'- yeah that sounds about right for Rushdie 😁 1mo
thebluestocking @Redheadrambles Ooh. I love the slow and steady approach. 1mo
ClairesReads Solid month friend! 1mo

This wasn't that good of a reading month for me. I'm not sure why, but I got into a big reading slump all throughout September.

I only read 5.
The Hazel Wood, Grace & Fury, The Knife of Never Letting Go, The Selection, and Royal Bastards.
4 print books and 1 ebook.
Grace & Fury, Knife of Never, and Royal Bastards were 5🌟, The Selection was 4🌟, The Hazel Wood was 3🌟.
Longest was Knife of Never, shortest was Grace & Fury.
Total pages: 1879

Bookaholicforlife I gave the hazel wood about the same rating 14mo

InBooksILive @Bookaholicforlife yeah it just fell flat for me! It had so much great hype around it, too. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 14mo
Bookaholicforlife @InBooksILive I agree! I loved the beginning and end but everything in between was just blah for me. It‘s sad cause I really thought I was going to love it. 14mo
InBooksILive @Bookaholicforlife those are the parts I liked too, beginning and ending but like you said the middle was just ughh! So disappointed about it 14mo
Bookaholicforlife @InBooksILive I understand. I hope the books you read next are better. 14mo

monkeygirlsmama @TrishB @Andrew65 @Ms_T @bookish22 lol Thanks, I suppose it is; I just had hopes of finishing/getting to a few others. All the same, I‘m glad I got to read when I did. 😁 2y
Andrew65 @monkeygirlsmama I think that sums a lot of us up (including me in September), we'd like to have got to more! 2y

Starting this one today before the BBC begins the second part of the Cormoron Strike this Saturday 🙏🙌📖🕵 #crimefiction #Septemberbooks

JillR Ooooooooh I didn't know they'd even done a second one! I thought it was just Cuckoo's Calling. I've not watched it yet - I'd better get it watched this weekend so I can start the next! 2y
AisPM @JillR I just found out myself yesterday! Hope you enjoy watching :) 2y
