  1. Ack, I've never been the first one in the month, and I can't see the link. Is it a problem on my end, or possibly yours?

    1. Argh! Thanks for pointing that out -- blogger ate my html! It should be fixed now and the linkup should be showing. Sorry to delay you as you're first off the plate :)

  2. September was a month to catch up on reading. I finally tackled Comeback (1983), Dan Hill's first and (mercifully) only novel. Not recommended. On the other hand, Robert Barr's Revenge! (1896) turned out to be great fun (if sometimes disturbing).

    I'm now up to five.

    1. Sounds good - I'm also fascinated by crows. We have a family of them who live around our place & they are so interesting to watch. Love your cover photo, too!

  5. This brings me to 6/13 - and the main character of American War is a VERY strong woman, so I'd say it counts! (She's also a bisexual woman of color, I was excited to see that extra bit of representation!)

  10. Anita Majumdar's The Fish Eyes Trilogy brings me to 8/13. The trilogy was written (and performed) by a woman, and it has strong feminist themes.
