October was kind of a strange month for me reading-wise. I had a lot of things going on in my personal life and I think my reading reflects that. Despite my desire to read, I only managed to squeeze in 12 books this month, and 9 of them were re-reads. Still, I’m not complaining. All things considered, 12 is a good number….
Because You’re Mine by Lisa Kleypas (re-read) 4.75/5
Again the Magic by Lisa Kleypas (re-read) 4/5
Three Nights by Debra Mullins (re-read) 3.5/5
A Courtesan’s Scandal by Julia London 3.5-3.75/5
Devil in Winter by Lisa Kleypas (re-read) 5/5
Heart Fate by Robin D. Owens (re-read) 4.5/5
Tempt Me at Twilight by Lisa Kleypas 3.75/5
Heart Change by Robin D. Owens 3.75/5
Worth Any Price by Lisa Kleypas (re-read) 5/5 (That’s really Lori’s review, but I’m linking to it b/c she said everything I wanted to)
Beginnings by Judith Duncan 2/5
Once Upon a Wedding by Stacy Connelly 3/5
And Then He Kissed Her by Laura Lee Guhrke (re-read) 4/5
My favorite reads were the Lisa Kleypas re-reads I did, namely Worth Any Price, Because You’re Mine and Devil In Winter, though all of them are awesome. My least favorite read was Beginnings by Judith Duncan (which I hope to review at some point). It’s an old school Harlequin SuperRomance I picked up at the UBS on a whim. It was definitely Old Skool (the hero bordered on abusive while the heroine bowed and scraped before him), though the entertainment factor was huge.
I’m going to giveaway two books this month. The first is Because You’re Mine by Lisa Kleypas. Despite my love of all things Nick Gentry and Sebastian St. Vincent, I think Logan Scott is entirely underrated and needs some love.
The second is A Courtesan’s Scandal by Julia London. I’m really conflicted about it (as my review reflects) and I wonder if I’m the only one.
October was a pathetic reading month for me. I wasn’t in a slump, I just couldn’t be bothered to read. I blame it partially on Supernatural. I watched Seasons 1-4 in about three weeks. That definitely took a chunk out of my reading time. The total number of books I read for October was a whopping 13.
Feel the Heat by Cindy Gerard (4.25/5)
Holding Out For a Hero by HelenKay Dimon (4.25/5)
Drawn in Blood by Andrea Kane (4/5)
Love You to Death by Shannon K. Butcher (4.25/5)
Midnight Angel by Lisa Kleypas (4/5)
Prince of Dreams by Lisa Kleypas (4/5)
Covet by J.R. Ward (3.5/5)
Tie Me Down by Tracy Wolff (3.75/5)
The Perfect Murder by Brenda Novak (4/5)
Riptide by Margaret Carroll (2/5)
Captive of Sin by Anna Campbell (4/5)
Skin Game by Ava Gray (4.25/5)
The best of these books was Skin Game and Love You to Death. I’m going to give a copy of Skin Game away.
