September 2017 Wrap-Up & Favorites

Welcome fall! I don’t have much news except that things in Catalonia are chaotic these days… I haven’t read as many books this month, so I’ll hope to improve my numbers in October. My favorite book was Katerina’s Diamond The Angel, but I really liked most of what I read. Snow Sisters & Maria In The Moon were beautiful And Tess Gerritsen and Carol Wyer are always addictive!

In a past life, I was probably a tortured police detective with a dark and traumatic past. Right now, however, I'm just a twenty-something bookworm who loves to listen to old songs and watch 90s movies. I enjoy mystery and crime, southern coming of age stories and historical fiction set in the last century.

  1. I’m looking forward to your review of The Rules of Magic. Alice Hoffman has been a sort of up and down author for me. I’ve loved some of her books and others…not so much. The idea of a prequel made me nervous, so I didn’t request this one. Your month looks pretty full to me!


    1. I didn’t like Practical Magic, so I don’t even know why I requested it, well, because I love the film. I liked this better but maybe I read PM when I was too young and hoped it would be like the film
