Tackling Mt. TBR

I'm an internet junkie that is obsessed with books. I own more than I will ever read in this lifetime and yet I'm still compelled
to buy more. I read mostly romance (mild to completely smutty), YA and urban fantasy.

A Connecticut Fashionista in King Arthur's Court - Mari Mancusi Delicate Freakn' Flower - Eve Langlais

I've read both of these books and I'll be honest, I wasn't a huge fan of either... That being said, free is a good deal and I'm sure other people will enjoy them more than I did.

And a personal note: My life at the moment has been in a bit busy so there haven't been many updates and I haven't been keeping up with posts as well as I normally would. I'm hoping things will even out a bit in November once we get moved. I miss all my book people!

Scandal - Carolyn Jewel

Library Book Sale Haul

Today I went to the Pickaway County library where you could fill a brown paper grocery bag full of books for $5. These kind of sales are my own personal catnip. I love the shopping spree type quality of the experience. After much rearranging, I managed to fit 24 books into the bag.

September was a slow reading month for me. Between work and getting ready to move things have been crazy around here. I did squeeze in a few books, mostly graphic novels at the beginning of the month.

I hope I get a chance to read more in October, but with the move actually taking place this month and still having so much to do, it doesn't look terribly promising.

Libertine's Kiss (Rakes and Rogues of the Restoration Book 1) - Judith James

I will no longer be posting Ellora's Cave freebies on my blog nor will I be purchasing or reviewing Ellora's Cave books. The lawsuit against Dear Author (a blog I visit daily and greatly admire) has prompted this decision.

Hacktivist - DNF

Hacktivist #1 - Alyssa Milano, Collin Kelly, Jackson Lanzing, Marcus To, Ian Herring

This isn't the exact one I read but I couldn't find that one which was the complete series, I think. At any rate, this was exceedingly boring and the characters were not well done. I honestly didn't care much about any of them. Perhaps someone a bit more techy would appreciate this more than me.

The New Deadwardians [Review]

The New Deadwardians - Dan Abnett, I.N.J. Culbard

This was fabulous! Such a creative look at vampires and zombies with a top notch setting. There were some great twists and turns and some unexpected moments along the way. I wasn't able to guess what would happen I just went along for the ride. A great twist on some ideas that have been done to death (pardon the pun) and I'm disappointed there isn't more to this series.

 

The only thing that made me take off half a star was that they never really tell you how the murder was committed. You have to draw an assumption and I would've preferred to have it spelled out for me.
