My September Reads

September sucked big time for me. Everything that can go wrong did exactly that but I won't give. I can be stubborn that way. Try to listen to Wonderful Life by Hurts real often and it gives me hope even if it makes me cry sometimes. There will be better times just have to be patient. =)

Book wise it was a great month for the most part. Here's what I read:

1. The Road to Shanhasson (The Shanhasson Trilogy, #2) by Joely Sue Burkhart (re-read)

I completely adore this series and in my vacay I wanted a book I knew I would love and enjoy so I picked it up again. And yes also my bad conscience came back to me and I knew I still had to review it so I started reading, or better said devouring it. You can read my rave about it's awesomeness here.

2. Size Matters (The Fringe, #1) by Stephanie Julian

Ohhhhh this book kept me awake till the middle of the night. It made me snort with laughter and OMHG did it make my bed hot. Wonderful read you really shouldn't miss. Steph knows how to write an entertaining book and you won't regret it. I swear. (my review)

The Darkly Luminous Fight for Persephone Parker (Strangely Beautiful, #2) by Leanna Renee Hieber

This series is so different from everything I read usually. Ms. Hieber's writing has such a lyrical touch- enthralling from the first page. I didn't like it as much as I wished to do but I enjoy it the whole time. I also talked it through with Caroline and you can read our ramblings here.

4. Where the Rain is Made by Keta Diablo
I'm not sure what to say about this book. Truth be told I didn't enjoy it much. I couldn't bring myself to continue reading it most of the time. It was a struggle for me. The romance wasn't like I wanted it to be. It felt too forced my taste.At first they hate each other and bang now all of a sudden they want babies and I just couldn't follow. It happened to fast and I didn't get all the explanations and reasons for their choices. I also found a pet peeve of mine in this book. I didn't get why the Native Americans sometimes had an "English" name like for example "Strikes First" and other have this kind of name in their mother tongue like e.g. He’evo’nehe. I know I'm picky. So perhaps I'm just not made for this kind of story. Many seem to love it. *shrugs*
5. Anytime Darlin' by Julia Rachel Barrett

This book touched my heart really deep. Wonderful heartfelt story that touches a topic I usually rather don'r read about- Rape. Julia made it work. It's not a sunshine and flowers book but how could it be with such a topic. I really enjoyed and I highly recommend it. I know I will read it again. (my review)

6.Eternal Kiss of Darkness (Night Huntress World #2) by Jeaniene Frost

I waited so long for Mencheres' story and I was thrilled to find this one in a book store. I just couldn't resist even though I shouldn't have. I really enjoyed it but the end was a bit too easy for taste. I loved to see Mencheres from a different side and OMG ceiling smex. But what I have to say: the cover is seriously O_o who's idea was it to add the blood? Did they do that with paint? I think that cover pro should search for a new job.

7. Double Cross (The Disillusionists Trilogy #2) by Carolyn Crane

OMG this book nearly drove me crazy. I loved every second of it but the end was like WTF Nooooooo!!! I have no idea how Carolyn can do that to us. She can be the mean one as it seems. Highly recommended series. I'm counting the day till book 3. You can read my full review here and there is still a chance to win your own copy(link is at the end of the review)

8. Hurt Me So Good (The Connaghers #2) by Joely Sue Burkhart

Victor *said with husky voice*

I'm actually writing the review at the moment buit as it seems the words just don't want to do it justice. I always feel like I'm not saying it right so I will tweak it a bit more. Review will be up on Tuesday and you will get a chance to win your own copy. So stay tuned.

9. A Safe Harbor (Building Sanctuary #1) by Moira Rogers

This book reminded me how much I love Moira Rogers novels. I completely adore their voice and the world building and characterization is always perfect.
I loved this story and OMG Seamus is made of awesome. Wonderful!
Review to come.

So tell me about your reading month!

I really love that song now. I listen to it from time to time. =)
It was maybe a sucky month when it comes to the # of books, but it looks like it was a quality month! Many books with great ratings I see!
I am SO behind on reading books from my TBR shelves and e-shelves. *sigh*

@pattepoilue The month was really not bad reading wise. Just all the rest. Real life sucks from time to time. And that song is so addicting.
