September wrap up…

Happy October, I’m so sorry it’s taken me all day to write and this wasn’t the post I had initially wanted to share.

Today I attended my induction for Cineworld and have been undertaking some online training since I got home. As I’m now done for the evening I’ve turned to my blog. I’m hoping to participate in Blogtober and with my change of job I’m also hoping to switch up the content here at Hayley Reviews.

So September was a good one for me. At the start of it I was on holiday and I really had got in the mood for reading. I managed to get in a few short stories as well as some audiobooks and some general books via ebook and paperback.

Let’s see how I faired…

These two beautiful shorts – the first is a Simon and Schuster special and wow what a treat. Although I must say I haven’t seen if the author has done anything else since that. You can read my thoughts on Stepping out Here

Mhairi McFarlane is one of my favourite authors and You Had Me At Hello is what made me a fan so when it came to After You it was a no brainer I had to read it. I started this ages ago and for one reason or another it got shelved whilst I was on holiday I wanted a break in between novels so I started reading again from the beginning. After You thoughts

Lake Child was my last read of September and wow!!! Lake Child Review

As you can see there are a few where I haven’t posted the reviews yet. Watch this space.

I was on the audio blog tour for this and it sure was a treat it won’t be the last K L Slater book I read. You can read my thoughts here

Since being hooked on her debut I’ve been a massive fan of Zoe May and this was such a treat I still have one of hers to read but you can read my thoughts on this beauty Here

So that was September….would you like to see what I want to attempt to read in October?

Also tomorrow do I share one of the reviews that are missing or something else. Do get in touch.

What did I read in August.

Now I was overly optimistic with my TBR for August with so much happening it was obvious to me that I wouldn’t have completed it.

However, I sure did read some beauties that have left their mark on me.

I loved each of these for different reasons and they are all authors I adore. I must admit I have a few more of Catherine’s on my Kindle but that’s the first of hers I’ve devoured and what a fantastic start….

My thoughts on these 📚

Rewind By Catherine Ryan Howard

One Winter Morning By Isabelle Broom

The Turn of the Key By Ruth Ware

I’m hoping to have my Miranda Dickinson review up for publication day tomorrow. I started September with a few short reads which were ace and I’m now in the midst of Zoe May’s When Polly Met Olly which I’ve been meaning to read for ages. I feel like my time away caught up with me and last night and this morning I’ve had a massive headache – so I’ve only managed a little reading. I have two very different audios on the go and one is for a blog tour.

I’m hoping that seeing as I’m on holiday until the end of Saturday and I have a little downtime in September that I can read a lot more than I managed in August. I like being optimistic but I also like getting more reading into my month.

Two of my August reads were buddy reads and I’m pleased to say that myself and Catriona have a few ideas up our sleeves and one includes one of my fave authors.

August Wrap Up…

So here’s to September…but before this month swims by let’s look at August. August was an ok month for me there was good and bad and a week away for me but what did I read.

Evie’s Little Black Book

Oh Crumbs

Make Or Break

The Last Good Day

I also started listening to…

West Cork

Not the best yet also not the worst reading month. My problem of late has been time and organisation. Tonight I’m going to sit down with my physical diary and actually use it again. I started so well at the beginning of the year and I don’t know what happened. I also have Penny Parkes Out Of Practice on the go…

Here’s to an even better reading month and a fab weekend. Tomorrow I plan to sleep, read, spend time with family and friends and cinema. I’m finally going to see the new Mission Impossible film – as a massive Tom Cruise fan I cannot wait.

There have been some personal posts which you guys seem to have connected with if you have a burning question for me do get in touch.
