Summer is coming to an end and the kiddos are headed back to school. My five year old starts kindergarten next week and I’m excited, and a little sad.
My summer reading challenge was a success! I didn’t finish all the books I’d hoped to read but I made a huge dent in my series TBR and I will continue set series goals and conquer them. Here is my summer reading challenge status:
- Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews– COMPLETE
- Shifter series by Rachel Vincent – COMPLETE
- Mercy Thompson Series by Patricia Briggs – Reading Bone Crossed, fourth book out of five.
- Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins – Just added this to my list. Up next.
- Chicagoland Vampire Series by Chloe Neill
Here are the rating stats for my August reading roundup:
- 1 – 5 heart
- 1 – 4.5 heart
- 11 – 4 hearts
- 1 – 3.5 heart
- 1- 3 heart
A Kiss Before Dying by J.A. Saare
Short story, very romantic and sexy. If you haven’t read J.A. Saare, nice way to sample her work.
Demon from the Dark (Immortals After Dark, #10) by Kresley Cole
Dear Malkom, you are the dirtiest, most disgusting and sexy
demon vemon I have ever loved. If you ever want a bath, I’m your girl. Angry beach sex? Me. I love you. You can eat my toothpaste anytime you want. The end. P.S. Let’s try to keep the severed heads a minimum ok?
Bond with Me by Anne Marsh
A very dark fallen angels paranormal romance. My first Anne Marsh read. Review to come.
Moon Called (Mercedes Thompson, #1) by Patricia Briggs
So glad I got an introduction into this world in the Alpha & Omega series. Really enjoyed this book.
Blood Bound (Mercedes Thompson, #2) by Patricia Briggs
Patricia Briggs is amazing.
Iron Kissed (Mercedes Thompson, #3) by Patricia Briggs
This one totally cemented my love for this series and it’s characters. I love Adam and Mercy.
Ex Appeal by Cari Quinn
A really fun, fresh second chances romance. I’ll read more from Cari Quinn.
Spark of Temptation – by Jess Haines
This is part of the Anthology Nocturnal. This story is related to Jess Haines’s debut novel Taken By The Others. Review coming soon.
Mind Games (The Disillusionists Trilogy, #1) by Carolyn Crane
Why did I let this sit on the TBR for so long? LOVED this book. So unique, and twisted and suspenseful. I can’t wait for Double Cross.
Naked by Megan Hart
As usual I’m in therapy recovering from my latest MH read. I’m going to start billing her.
Prey (Shifters, #4) by Rachel Vincent
I knew it was coming but it still hurt. Really bad.
Assassin’s Heart (Order of the Sicari, #2) by Monica Burns
Full of angst, sexual tension, a nice secondary romance, violence…really good book.
Whirlpool (Forces of Nature #2) by Vivian Arend
Who knew merfolk were sexy? Vivian Arend rocked it with bisexual mermen that’s for sure!
Corralled (Blacktop Cowboys, #1) by Lorelei James
Lorelei James is a favorite author and she didn’t let me down with this first in a new series. I love her sexy cowboys.
Lovestruck by KT Grant
My first full fledged f/f romance. This was fun, sexy and Barbara was a dirty talker. Win!
That’s my August roundup. Hope you all had a great reading month and are looking forward to some fab September books.
