This was my worst reading month for quite some time. I simply had other stuff going on that took my time away from reading. I have been listening to a lot of music and I have been writing a fair bit, which has been very enjoyable. I am actually ok with that. My reading will pick up eventually. It always does.

BOOK OF THE MONTH
Despite the fact I read so few books, I still find it hard to choose a favourite. I think considering my mood over the month of September, I wil have to chose For The Love of Hades. It was definitely the biggest surprise, as I really did not expect it to be that good. It was the combination of reading Mythos and listening to a song called ‘Persephone’ by Belgian singer Tamino (who I have been listening to a lot this month), which refers to the myth, that made me want to read a retelling of the story of Hades and Persephone. After reading lots of reviews I went for this one. I was skeptical because of the lame cover, but it was actually really well done! Highly recommended!
