September was a good month in terms of reading as I was off and had loads of time! I got through 8 books, I enjoyed them all some more than others of course!

She has no money and overhears someone saying the access code for a house out loud. Thinking she can stay there for a while, the owner comes back and she meet Emily. She gets to know Emily and realises that things are not what they seem regarding her new friend.

Some book blogs to check out:
Cleopatra love books, I found this blog recently
A Little Blog of Books, another blog I like
I am thinking of getting this book The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton. At over 700 pages it is quite a long book, but it sounds very interesting and is set in New Zealand. It won the Man Booker Prize in 2013
