Monthly Reads: September 2016

Posted October 5, 2016 by Rowena in Features, Giveaways | 6 Comments


Casee: The month of September was a pathetic month for me. I’m ashamed to even tell you all the number of books I read. The patheticness (a word made up for me) that was my reading is laughable. I didn’t even do any re-reads.

  1. Apprentice in Death by J.D. Robb | 4.25 out of 5
  2. Leopard’s Fury by Christine Feehan | 3.5 out of 5
  3. Race the Darkness by Abbie Roads | 3.75 out of 5

My favorite book by far was Apprentice in Death. Eve Dallas. Let’s not even address the fact that I only read three books. The most interesting book I read was Race the Darkness. Abbie Roads is a new to me author and I’m looking forward to sharing my review with you.

Holly: September was a pretty sad month for me, too. I did a couple re-reads and that was mostly it.

  1. Golden Trail by Kristen Ashley (re-read) | 3.5 out of 5
  2. Fate’s Edge by Ilona Andrews | 4 out of 5
  3. Heat Exchange by Shannon Stacey | 3.5 out of 5
  4. Blonde Date by Sarina Bowen (re-read) | 4.5 out of 5
  5. Rock Chick: Revolution by Kristen Ashley | 2 out of 5

My favorite read of the month (ha ha) was Fate’s Edge by Ilona Andrew’s. I love the world and the characters. My least favorite read was Rock Chick: Revolution. That was such a ridiculous book, I can’t even talk about it.

Rowena: September was another busy month for me as my daughter started her senior year in high school. So we’ve had basketball, senior pictures and starting at a new Ward to get through and all in all, it’s been a really good month for us personally and as a family. I can’t believe that Brenna is a senior in high school. I remember the first day of Kindergarten. She’s so grown now and I miss when she was little.

My reading wasn’t as grand as I’d hoped but what’s new? I went through a reading funk in September and still managed to get some books read so I’m going to count my blessings. 🙂 Here’s what I read last month:

  1. Four Letter Word (Dirty Deeds #1) by J. Daniels | 1 out of 5
  2. Three Amazing Things about You by Jill Mansell | 3.5 out of 5
  3. The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins | 3.5 out of 5
  4. The Boy is Back (Boys #4) by Meg Cabot | 4 out of 5
  5. To Love and To Cherish (Wedding Belles #3) by Lauren Layne | 4.5 out of 5
  6. The Billionaire Next Door (Billionaire Bad Boys #2) by Jessica Lemmon | 4 out of 5
  7. The Viscount and the Vixen (Hellions of Havisham #4) by Lorraine Heath | 4 out of 5

My favorite read of the month goes to the third Wedding Belles book, To Love and to Cherish by Lauren Layne. It was such a great book with a steamy romance that I adored. Logan and Alexis rocked my socks and I was very happy with their story. Honorable mentions go out to The Billionaire Next Door by Jessica Lemmon (Yay for Tag!), The Boy is Back (Boys #4) by Meg Cabot and The Viscount and the Vixen (Hellions of Havisham #4) by Lorraine Heath. All were fabulous reads as well.

My least favorite read of the month goes to Four Letter Words (Dirty Deeds #1) by J. Daniels. There was too much immaturity and crap that I just didn’t get and didn’t like. The hero and the heroine got on my nerves and I almost DNF’d it but muscled through but in the end, I was still dissatisfied with everything. shrugs

This month we’re giving away:

To Love and to Cherish (Wedding Belles #3) by Lauren Layne
Race the Darkness by Abbie Roads
Fate’s Edge by Ilona Andrews (or book 1, On the Edge, if the winner hasn’t read it yet)

    Hmm, best read of September? Some favorites were Sarina Bowen’s Rookie Move, Marie Force’s Fatal Frenzy, and a re-read of Mariana Zapata’s The Wall of Winnipeg and Me. I don’t really have a least favorite, but I did read a book that left me conflicted as it alternately appealed to and repelled me ~ The Queen of All that Dies (The Fallen World Book 1) by Laura Thalassa.

  2. CelineB

    My favorite book for September was A Duke to Remember by Kelly Bowen with Sleepless in Manhattan by Sarah Morgan as a close second. I didn’t really have a least favorite this month, all my reads were good. I would love to win To Love and to Cherish!

    Should my name be drawn, I’d enjoy receiving either To Love and to Cherish (Wedding Belles #3) by Lauren Layne or Race the Darkness by Abbie Roads.

    Most of the books I read in September were “B” reads, good, but not great. My favorite for the month was Man Law by Adrienne Giordano. I really liked the main couple – a firefighter’s widow and an ex-Special Forces guy who works for her brother’s security firm. Least favorite was a free NA superhero book called A New Day by Colleen Vanderlinden. It wasn’t bad, it was just that the heroine was a few too many TSTL moments for me. I would love to win To Love and To Cherish.
