I had really great blogging months in July and August, but September is our year-end in work and there was SO much going on that blogging really took a back seat. I was hoping to get back in to the swing of things in October, but so far I haven’t had much luck. Scheduling really is the way to go for me, but I haven’t had time to do much of that either! I’m hoping for the next few weeks I’ll get much more content up, fingers crossed!
For review this month, I received Pre-suasion by Robert B. Cialdini, Nina Is Not OK by Shappi Khorsandi, Girls & Sex: Navigating the Complicated New Landscape by Peggy Orenstein, and Eating the Elephant by Alice Wells. I also received copies of two illustrated picture books for children. I don’t tend to read or review these often, but in light of my Best Friend (yes, I give that title capitals!) having an adorable baby girl, I’ve taken a bit of an interest in picture books for mini people. I received The Christmas Eve Tree and A First Book of Animals.
Purchases this month… You’d think after my little indulgence last month I would have declined… Instead I restrained. This month I purchased Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook by Gary Vaynerchuk, DK’s The History Book (which is part of their Big Ideas Simply Explained series. I own about 5 of them now), Queen Bees by Sian Evans, as well as two sets – Percy Jackson and the Olympians series and The Selection series (PJ is on offer for £6.99 for 5 books, and The Selection is on offer for £7.99 for 5 books, I CANNOT say no to those prices, AND I had a discount code too). I’m intending the Percy Jackson series to be a gift, that I might sneakily try to read first…
In BIG (and obvious) news, I also picked up a signed copy of Empire of Storms by Sarah J Maas, which I’ve already read. Review to follow once I can form coherent thoughts.
