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

September Roundup

Holy cow did September fly by! I had a lot of fun with my September Singles, there were some, "ummm...." books but it was nice to mix it up with some oldies :)  The start of Halloween Bingo was also fun and I managed to get six books read for it. You wild super awesome people who almost have all their cards covered are amazing! Usually, October is my "Start a new Series" month but I think I'm going to skip it this year and replace it with a Halloween Bingo book so I can make at least a respectable showing, maybe I'll manage to get a Bingo, lol.

 

Links are to my review or the book page if I didn't write one, the September Singles are in italics, and Halloween Bingo books are all in bold.

Managed to read the same amount of books I did last month, how's that for consistency :)  Only one 4 star makes me sad and I kind of think I've been in a mini-slump in regards to quality or books I've really liked. Hoping October has some really great reads to get going on ending the year strong.
