October: finally back to the big tbr pile and my own books


Okay - this isn't my real tbr stack, but it very well could be. I got so sidetracked by saying yes, yes, yes to advanced reading copies that I'm going to start saying no, no, no. I still have a few to read, but they'll keep for a while.  While I don't have a set plan, since it's October, I'll be trying to find some darker reads to keep me entertained, but I won't limit myself. 

I've already finished Susan Hill's The Woman in Black, which I thought was quite good. If you've seen the movie with Daniel Radcliffe, trust me - it's not the book. Crimewise, I'm currently reading Reykjavik Nights, by Arnaldur Indridason, not a book that continues the series but a sort of prequel.  Nonfiction brings me to Martin Dugard's The Explorers, which I'll start after I finish one Sarah Waters had in her the Paying Guests bibliography, The Feminine Middlebrow Novel 1920s to 1950s.

Right now I need a home for Christian Tsiolkas' Barracuda (US readers only, sorry) -- there will be more books needing homes this month as I try to pare down my collection, so stay tuned. Just be first to comment saying you want the book and I'll mail it to you.

Say what you will, but at least try to be nice about it.
