September 2023 TBR

We’re into the final third of the year and the mornings already have that autumn twang. Not that we had that much of a summer after the promise of June…

Any way you’re here for the books, and I am here to tell you what I am aiming to read in this equinox month.

It is a bit shorter than normal as previous TBRs have been recently. This is partly a hope that I can actually read all on the list and secondly that I have less than 60 book to go on my Good Reads challenge.

Spread the love

    Nice list! An Almost Impossible Thing is that Little Toller book, isn’t it? I was hoping I could get down there and then also visit the shop this year but we’ll have to see what state we’re in after having work done on the house next week! Happy reading! I have a sort of free month with no challenges, but I have set myself a pile of print books after having been successful doing that during 20 Books of Summer …

      It is indeed. I hope the renovations go well and that you do make it down. A challenge free month sounds lovely. I have a nature one to complete and a long term travel one that I do an update blog post on.
