What’s planned for October?

After taking some much needed annual leave in September I am back at work and so will have less reading time during October. But that won’t stop me!

In the coming month I will be finishing the tome Grand Days by Frank Moorhouse and catching up on reviews of all the books I read during my holidays including the amazing Elliot Perlman title The Street Sweeper and the finale to Tara Moss’ Vanderwall thriller series Assassin, for which I can only say ‘bravo’.

I will also be participating in book tours for What The Zhang Boys Know and Blood Zero Sky and launching giveaways of those titles.

Books coming up include:

Velocity by Steve Worland   The Time Keeper by Mitch Albom    The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon    Shadow of the Rock by Thomas Mogford

What are your reading plans for October?
