I am behind on my posts! Blame it on my hubby who surprised me with a trip to Maui for my birthday. I had a great time by the way. :)
Now back to business as usual.
January was a decent reading month for me. I normally only have time to read about four books a month, but this month I was able to more than double that count with a full nine books read! I'm laughing now because nine books is like chump change for some of my blogging buddies, but for me it's a really big accomplishment. Here's what I read:
1. Mine to Possess by Nalini Singh (Grade C+)
2. Sugar Daddy by Lisa Kleypas (Grade A)
3. Sea Fever by Virginia Kantra (Crade C-)
4. Gathering Blue by Lois Lowry (Grade B-)
5. Smooth Talking Stranger by Lisa Kleypas (review to come)
6. The McKettrick Way by Linda Lael Miller (Grade C+)
7. HeartSick by Chelsea Cain (Grade B-)
8. The Bride Finder by Susan Carroll (Grade B+)
9. Hot Mail by Janice Maynard (review to come)
The most notable of this months reads were both Sugar Daddy and Smooth Talking Stranger. Though I'm still thinking over my feelings on Smooth Talking Stranger, I can say that it was an enjoyable read. I will post a review for it closer to the release date.
I read my first Category, The McKettrick Way for Keishon's TBR Challenge. It wasn't what I had hoped for, but I'm glad it helped add a small dent to my TBR pile.
Gathering Blue by Lois Lowery had such an effect on me that I now have the first book in the trilogy, The Giver, lined up to read as another addition in the Young Adult Challenge.
Thanks to Nath's Re-Read Challenge, I was able to reread The Bride Finder by Susan Carroll and absolutely loved it!
While I've only completed 9 books, I have started a few more. I was lucky enough to win an ARC of Angels' Blood, the first book in Nalini Singh's new series about angels, a review for that will be going up late next week. I also started Gabriel's Ghost by Linnea Sinclair. Right now I'm reading and LOVING The KingMaking by Helen Hollick. This book brings a fresh take on the story of King Arthur. Since I love history and equally love historical fiction, this book is right up my alley.
So, all in all, I think I had a pretty good reading month. How was yours?
