My current reads

Bizarrely, over the summer my reading has slowed a little – it’s like my brain wants to relax and play, and save the reading for termtime!  It may also be the fact that my 90 minute commute roundtrip has been missing….

Now, however, it’s nearly back to work and I have lots of lovely reads on my pile awaiting my attention, including:

All That is Bitter and Sweet: A Memoir

The lovely Christielli read this over the summer and said she thought it would be very much my kind of book, so I’ve ordered it to dive into. It sounds like a pretty fascinating read, I must say!

 Charlotte Street

The latest book by Danny Wallace, he of Join Me fame/infamy.  I tend to really like his books – they are fun and zippy and hard to put down, so this should be a treat.
The House of Silk: The New Sherlock Holmes Novel (Sherlock Holmes Novel 1)

Confession: I’ve never read an actual Sherlock Holmes novel.  Excerpts like you wouldn’t believe, but never a whole book.  I’m not the greatest fan of whodunnits and I genuinely think I just haven’t ever felt compelled to pick the series up.  I’m excited to read Horowitz’s treatment of the series though – maybe this will ignite a new passion?

The China Study: The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted and the Startling Implications for Diet, Weight Loss and Long-term Health

I saw this book in Whole Foods the other day and thought it looked very interesting.  I’ve been making some pretty big changes to my approach to food and health over the last couple of months, and I thought a little reading on the subject would be helpful!

A Wrinkle in Time (Puffin Modern Classics)

A book I can’t believe I haven’t read yet.  On it.

So they are my reads for September – I am really going to have to work to achieve my goal of 52 books this year!  What are you all reading?

    You will love A Wrinkle in Time. Better yet, there is an entire series.

    Hope you enjoy all of your upcoming reads, especially the one I recommended!Currently, I am reading a book called "What Teachers Make" by Taylor Mali. I borrowed it from a colleague and saved it for this time of year to inspire me. You will like it!
