A Little Bit of Everything

September 2023 marked my first month as an American living in America in nearly 20 years. Our lives are not only US-based, but all four of us are living and working within 60 miles of each other. we live in a truly spectacular area, and the dog and I take 1-2 mile walks together every morning. I also now spend 2 hours each weekday in the car, shuttling a kid to and from school. I will say, the roads are beautiful, despite the shocking driving of the locals. All of those hours in the car and out walking with Poppy equal a lot of time for audiobooks! I'm especially grateful to NetGalley this month because I tore through audiobooks at a never-before-seen pace thanks to having so many on hand. I read fiction (historical, contemporary, thrillers, police procedurals), nonfiction, memoirs, and even (GASP) a romance. And I liked *almost* everything. I'm taking time to appreciate my first Autumn in 15 years, especially since I know it means I'm about to get my first winter in the same.

This month, since I read so many, I will go back to posting links and snapshot ratings in order of best to worst. If you want to read my full review, click on the image.
