Kyraryker’s quotes

"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

August Roundup

Shoving August out the door just a wee bit early (the excitement of Halloween Bingo is too much for me to handle)! August was my "Kindle Freebies" month and while there wasn't anything that caused me to take an ad out in the paper, they were overall ok and none that made me want to swear off reading forever. Win! September is my Singles month (books not in a series, but really just ones that I got from garage sales before GRs and didn't know they were in series :/ ) and I can't wait to discover some hidden gems. 

I'm excited to follow along with everyone's Halloween Bingo reads! I'll be participating but I have quite a few arcs to get through for September (I'm going to do my best to clean them all up so I can have October free) but I'm still playing along, if a bit slowly :)



Links are to my review or the book page if I didn't write one and the Kindle Freebies are in italics.

Improved on the amount of books I read from last month but it was kind of a disappointing month with quality, 8 "ok" books is a bit sad. Hoping September is better!
