It seems I can barely keep up with these monthly wrap-ups. While there hasn’t been a whole lot going on at BookPairing on the front lines, I can assure you that the whole shady background of the set (see: woman typing fervently behind laptop with dog at her feet) is moving a mile a minute, with loads planned for BookPairing in the next few months. Likewise, reading has lightened considerably, especially at the end of the month but I blame that just as much on reading Stephen King’s The Stand (1,000+ pages ahem) than anything else.
This month on BookPairing, I released my first Quickie Pairing of Breasts and Bonk–two women who take on the naughty bits and naughty times of our lives. For some more escapism, see my review of The Demi-Monde: Winter by Rod Rees.
There was also a guerilla fitness challenge with A.J. Jacobs’ book Drop Dead Healthy. And, at the beginning of the month, I wrote up my pairing for two books that spoke to the dusty desert towns I grew up in: All the Pretty Horses by Cormac McCarthy and Battleborn by Claire Vaye Watkins.
Oh and I talked about my bookshelves, because that’s what all the cool people do.
- Battleborn by Clare Vaye Watkins
- The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente

What’s your favorite book you read in September? What are you reading now?
P.S.: I want to send a huge thank you to Amy at the One Artsy Momma Etsy shop for putting together a new blog header after I asked her to have it finished like yesterday. She must have had a DeLorean because here it is. Thanks again so much Amy!
