Challenge Roundup for September

Pin It

Do you remember, all those books we did read in September? (Sorry Earth, Wind and Fire.) I've kept up with the challenges for this month. It hasn't been a bad month and I've enjoyed my picks for the challenges.

The RIP V Challenge started this month. I've read 2 books so far: Bespelling Jane Austen and Witchcraft. I'm in the middle of The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins right now. It's really good!


The 4th Canadian Reading Challenge continues and the end of September saw the completion of 2 more books bringing my total to 4.
  1. Folly
  2. Damaged
  3. Her Mother's Daughter
  4. Witchcraft
Another month of the Daphne du Maurier Challenge gone and one more book read. This month it was The Rebecca Notebook and Other Memories. Not my favorite, but there were some interesting tidbits in it. Other participants read several of her works this month as well. Jess took on Mary Anne, Rose City Reader joined us for the first time with Rebecca, and My Reader's Block was intrigued by The House on the Strand. Buried in Print had issues with Daphne's portrayal of women in The Birds and Other Stories. Mel U read My Cousin Rachel as her second Daphne du Maurier. Thanks once again guys!

If you're looking for something creepy to watch during October, Alfred Hitchcock's adaptation of du Maurier's The Birds is just the thing. Here he is talking about the movie in his own unique way.




How were your challenges this month?

  1. Heh. I can hear my mother saying Is-Sues, each syllable pronounced as its own word. I did enjoy Flight of the Falcon, which I'll be chatting about later this week. Thanks for hosting!
