The List: September & October Update

It's been a while since I did a "monthly update" blog post, so I'm just going to combine September & October into one month.  I didn't read a whole lot of books, just four each month.   I re-read In Full Bloom and Cocktails for Three, I was waiting to pick up some new books & had nothing else to read, ha.  The Terrorist Creed was on sale for 5$, and I thought it seemed interesting so I bought it.  But it was really hard to read.  Not the actual story, but the book.  It was so small and it didn't take much time to read each page.  It was just kind of annoying to read a book that was so tiny, ha.  But, it was only 5$... I really enjoyed Gone Girl, and I picked up Sharp Objects while I was in Florida.  Also, now that I read The Beach, I need to check out the movie. 
I started working on a new blanket & I'm really loving it.  The idea is to have just a random patchwork blanket, but I have a very hard time just picking up a random colour & joining it.  So, I have a chart made up in excel.  It still looks random, but this way every colour is used the same amount & I don't have to worry about colours not going together.  I just add whatever colour comes next. 

What have you read recently?  Have you started any new projects?

  1. I am so impressed that you've read four books! I've been reading the same book from June to present. I think I have one chapter left. LOL

  3. I loved The Beach! Such a good book. I've been hearing a lot of good things about Gone Girl. I'll definitely have to pick that up. I think it's so hard to make random actually look random so I'm impressed with your chart!

  5. Hi Holly,
    I just love that you blog about the books you read, I need to start writing more about books as well ...

    Your method for figuring out the colour coordination on your blanket is brilliant - when I knitted my blanket made from (really large) squares I had to finish them all before I could lay out the pattern - this is much much better!

    Love, Qaroline
