October was *a while ago*, but I still remember how much I loved The City in the middle of the night, a really good scifi novel. I also loved Nous qui n’existons pas by Mélanie Fazi, a french non-fiction book about aromanticism (though the word isn’t used) and which made me want to read her sff short fiction even more !
Ninth House was also a big surpise, I didn’t know what to expect since I didn’t have strong feelings about Bardugo’s YA novels, but I really liked the main character and the university setting.
I wrote a review for Persephone which I loved, and I liked the Robots VS Fairies anthology a lot!
The Deep and Middlegame were my favourites that month, glad to see them both nominated for the Hugo now!
Les Soeurs Carmines and Timo were also super great.
As I got a job that month I was able to buy physical copies and read the remaining volumes of L’Atelier des Sorciers and Gloutons et Dragons, both manga fantasy series I love at the moment! Un gentil orc sauvage was also a big surprise, I loved it. December was a pretty good month actually because I liked or loved everything!
So that was a very quick catch up on my reading from last year that I hadn’t updated here, mainly for myself because I like having these visuals for each month easily accessible on the blog. Will do the same for the first three months of 2020 too very soon!

Ha, I guess October was indeed a while ago. (Anything before March 2020 feels like that, really…!)
I agree it’s really cool and satisfying to record what you read in this way! And it’s always a nice feeling to remember books like The City in the Middle of the Night that really stuck with you and that you remember loving several months (or years) later. 🙂
That’s true! Mainly my way to remember what happens a while back is “oh yeah I was reading that book when that happened” haha!
