I'm getting increasingly jealous of you all month after month haha, when I think something broke my slump, it returns right back. It's been easier to read non-fiction.

What excites you the most? Pick a word or a theme.

It was a very quiet September readingwise for me (only 3 books) I think the Aussie Rules got in the way, my team Richmond Tigers won their second Premiership in 3 years, so a lot of time was spent being joyful over that.

This is what I did read, though:

Middlegame by Seanan McGuire. This was an excellent urban fantasy/science fiction hybrid. The story of two people who were created to rule the world and their intertwined lives. It was departure for the author, and a good one.

Terminal Alliance by Jim Hines. The first science fiction I've read by Jim Hines and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Not surprisingly it was comedy, but not to the exclusion of story or character development. It's the first of a series, and I'll be on board for the sequel.

Silverthorn by Raymond Feist. This is part of the Riftwar trilogy, but I've always looked upon it and Darkness at Sethanon as a duology. It features Pug and Tomas from Magician and it goes briefly to Kelewan, but I felt that could have been removed and it would have worked even better as story that focuses on the quest of Arutha and Jimmy.
I will expand your TBR pile.
