Gigi | 833 comments Hi!

I hope everyone is having an amazing holiday!

I finished 2 books this month that I liked. Simply Irresistible (Lucky Harbor, #1) by Jill Shalvis - loved Jax and Promises (Coda Books, #1) by Marie Sexton . I liked them both.

What about you? Any good or bad books this month?

Happy Holidays everyone and a Happy New Year!

Susanne (bookcrazy47) | 884 comments Happy Holidays!!

I have had a pretty good month. I read The Naughty List by Jodi Redford which was a very hot and sweet liitle piece. The Name of the Wind (Kingkiller Chronicle, #1) by Patrick Rothfuss was another hit, it is not a romance but a brilliant piece of fantasy. How the Marquess Was Won (Pennyroyal Green, #6) by Julie Anne Long was an excellent, very funny and smart historical romance and I found a new author Samantha Jones and loved both A Perfect Bride (Sterling trilogy, #1) by Samantha James and A Perfect Groom (Sterling trilogy, #2) by Samantha James . Last I went back to Gentle Rogue (Malory Family, #3) by Johanna Lindsey which was the perfect comfort-read and another heroine-in-pants favorite.

Jenny (jyl22075) | 2336 comments We've still got one day left, but I'm going to post anyway. :) I was crazy busy so I didn't get a ton of reading done this month, but I did have two five-star reads:
The Nothingness of Ben by Brad Boney Turkey in the Snow by Amy Lane

Both m/m and awesome!

My biggest disappointment this month was Kissing Under the Mistletoe by Marina Adair which ended up on the DNF shelf because I didn't like the hero or heroine.

I'm going to try! Elishia recommended it to me because she knows I like unusual shifters and I'm pretty excited to read it.

Coraline by Neil Gaiman is an awful book and the movie is even worse i don't know how people like it .

Drz I've been reading the KGI series by Maya Banks. I love thi s series of books. That combine action, suspense and romance and everyone has issues and insecurities.
