"She thought it over, but couldn’t see any immediate loopholes other than the threat of her inner slut emerging, and she could darned well control that little bitch."— Susan Elizabeth Phillips

October Roundup

First off, Happy Halloween! I hope everyone gets to splurge on some candy tonight :)

 

October was a pretty good month, no five star reads but when I think back on it, it felt like a satisfying month. As my Start a New Series month, I read some pretty good books. I, of course, ran into a series that made me lose my mind and I had to read more than one, Fever by Karen Marie Moning. It was a wild ride and something that probably happens every October as I have no self-control but dang, what a series. I definitely recommend for fantasy/supernatural/romance fans out there.

 

Links are to my reviews or the book page if I didn't write one and my October - Start a New Series are in italics.

A couple more than last couple months, probably due to the aforementioned craziness with the Fever series and a couple novellas. No really high rated books but more middle of the road, which is better than last months group of 2 stars. ARCs kind of let me down but my Start a New Series selections were pretty great. November reading has some competition!
