Our Best Reads of September.

Posted October 7, 2007 by Rowena in Discussions | 9 Comments

The month of September brought school books, back packs and lunch boxes out of the closets and took away the reading slumps of the summer and for some of us, reading was good and for others, not so good…here at Book Binge, great books were read and some not so great books were read and reviewed here on our blog.

Here’s a list of the books that Rowena read:

Midnight Brunch by Marta Acosta
Lady Amelia’s Secret Lover by Victoria Alexander
Boy Meets Girl by Meg Cabot
All American Girl by Meg Cabot
Virgin River by Robyn Carr

That’s five books for me this month, it’s not nearly as much as I used to read but I’m making progress, I’ve already started and read two books this month so far so I’m on the right road to getting my reading mojo back, so woo hoo me! Last month, hands down my favorite read of the month has got to be Virgin River by Robyn Carr, I can’t say enough good things about this book and the characters. The story wasn’t filled up with mystery plots and killers lurking in the dark nor was it packed with lots and lots of simpering debutantes waiting to snare a daring Duke for their very own and it for sure wasn’t filled to the brim with vampires biting leopards or falling in love with fairies, it was a straight up human on human romance novel and I loved it to pieces, would totally recommend it to every damn body, what are you waiting for??? READ IT!


Izzy’s Reads

My reads for September were:

A Most Unsuitable Groom by Kasey Michaels (DNF)
Nobody’s Darling by Teresa Mederios
The Expected One by Kathleen Mcgowan
Stories to Make You Blush by Marie Gray
A Rogue in Texas by Lorraine Heath
Unmasqued by Colette Gale

About two or three chapters into A Most Unsuitable Groom, I decided not to finish. I wasn’t really getting into the story. It wasn’t grabbing me at all. I had to set that one down and walk away. Another read I was dissapointed in was The Expected One. It just felt like a wannabee Da Vinci Code.

As for my best reads, I would say it was A Rogue in Texas. I wasn’t expecting much since I didn’t care for Lorraine Heath’s other books, so this one surprised me. Except for two, I had a pretty good reading month.

Next up……

Casee Read:

Caressed by Ice by Nalini Singh (5 out of 5)
Edge of Midnight by Shannon McKenna (3.5 out of 5)
The Ice Queen by Joey W. Hill (4 out of 5)
Mirror of My Soul by Joey W. Hill (4.5 out of 5)
Die For Me by Karen Rose (4 out of 5)
Missing by Jasmine Cresswell (3.5 out of 5)
Dark Possession by Christine Feehan (4 out of 5)
Wicked Magic by Cheyenne McCray (3.5 out of 5)
White Lies by Jayne Ann Krentz (4 out of 5)
Hunting the Demon by Jaci Burton (3 out of 5)
A Touch of Minx by Suzanne Enoch (4 out out of 5)
Lover Unbound by J.R. Ward (3 out of 5)

I know there were more books I read, but I can barely remember last week, let alone a whole month ago. LOL.

By far the best read of the month was Caressed by Ice. I absolutely adored that book. Judd is probably my favorite hero of the year. Karen Rose is another author that I’ve been a long-time fan of. Die For Me isn’t my favorite KR book, but it was still good. The books that surprised me most were The Ice Queen and Mirror of My Soul, both my Joey W. Hill. I didn’t think I’d be a fan of the BDSM storyline, but I loved these books. Hill doesn’t write BDSM as a perversion, but rather a lifestyle that was chosen by both the Doms and the Subs. The Nature of Desire series she writes is a new favorite of mine. Everyone already knows my thoughts on Lover Unbound. *g*

So, let us know dear readers, what was YOUR favorite reads of last month?

    Hey Marg,

    Did you like reading Outlander by DG? I think I have Again the Magic by LK to read soon, I’m going to read the other first though, Worth Any Price, that’s the one with Lori’s man, Nick, right?


    LOVED TWILIGHT…can’t wait to see what you thought of the rest of the series! 😉


    You are a speed reader just like Holly and Casee, lucky duck! Skin to Skin, isn’t that by Bam? How did you like that book? Did you review any of those books? I’m going to read your blog right now, cause I’m nosy!


    I read a LDR before, the Maybe Baby one, I quite enjoyed that one, very cute…I’m gonna have to check out the book you read, see if I enjoy that one as well.


    I haven’t read either of those authors nor have I read many Blazes, can you recommend anything?

  5. Yep, I posted about some of them.
    Skin to skin is Bam’s book. I liked it, but when I think back on it I can’t remember too much. The good ones stick with me for a long time, so I guess it wasn’t as good as I first thought it was.

  6. Rowena, I loved Outlander. It’s the book that really started me reading again after a LONG time of not really reading anything.
