Read in September 2014

I think I wrote the most reviews (ever!) in September! Thanks to Diversiverse and RIP IX. I’ve already posted some reviews, and there will be more to come soon.

I had a great time armchair-travelling to Iran, Kitamaat (a village in Canada), London, Japan, 1970s Oakland, among other places, as well as fantastic invented worlds…

Some of my favourite reads were Eden Robinson’s Monkey Beach,  NK Jemisin’s The Shadowed Sun, and Mimi Pond’s Over Easy

  1. Audition is one of my favourite movies ever (I’m a bit odd, I know!). I haven’t read it, but I have read Piercing and it was an odd, nasty little novel. What’s audition like?


    1. Ok you are kind of odd! I’m so not a horror movie person, at all!! I thought the book was only ok. I felt that it could have explored more from the girl’s perspective. The build-up wasn’t really much of a build-up, for me! I really don’t dare see the film though! I’m terrified of watching horror movies! (Yes I know that’s the point :P)
