Top 4 Star reads this month
Seraphina (Seraphina, #1) by Rachel Hartman Easy by Tammara Webber Shadow and Bone (The Grisha, #1) by Leigh Bardugo First Grave on the Right (Charley Davidson, #1) by Darynda Jones

I have one more book to finish but I'm not sure if I'll make it before the end of the month. I know it will be at least a 4 star read though. It's Julie Garwood! I love her HR novels!

Sandra J Weaver (sandraweaver) | 361 comments I enjoyed The Chocolate Touch (Amour et Chocolat #4) by Laura Florand though it's not PNR-very good. I also enjoyed Spellbound Falls (Spellbound Falls #1) by Janet Chapman . Both of those were 4 stars for me. My favorite read was The Wicked (Elder Races, #5.5) by Thea Harrison which sent me back into an Elder Races reread. My favorite reread was The Lost Night (Rainshadow, #1; Harmony, #9) by Jayne Castle . Deception Cove (Rainshadow, #2; Harmony, #10) by Jayne Castle is next.

Gigi | 833 comments Hi Guys! Thanks for starting. I'm dealing with a few health issues so, I promise I haven't forgotten about you guys. Anyway, looks like there are more books that I need to add to the TBR.

Unfortunately, I've read nothing this month.

Gea (gea89) | 412 comments There weren't many 5 stars this month: The Bridal Veil by Alexis Harrington Rock Chick Revolution (Rock Chick, #8) by Kristen Ashley Viper's Run (The Last Riders, #2) by Jamie Begley A Reputation For Revenge by Jennie Lucas

4 stars but still good reads: The Mating (Law of the Lycans, #1) by Nicky Charles Devil in a Kilt (MacKenzie, #1) by Sue-Ellen Welfonder Feral Sins (The Phoenix Pack, #1) by Suzanne Wright A Rogue by Any Other Name (The Rules of Scoundrels, #1) by Sarah MacLean

Axel (Corps Security, #1) by Harper Sloan this one was solid 4 stars and I recommend it to all Kristen Ashley fans :)

I was dissappointed by Falling Into You (Falling, #1) by Jasinda Wilder and Frigid (Frigid, #1) by J. Lynn

Yes, Gea, I really enjoyed TBV, too, this month. Of course, it wasn't on audio. ☺

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 20797 comments I haven't read a Cindy Gerard novel in awhile, Susan. I have a couple on my TBR pile, too. Just not enough hours in the day.

Susanne (bookcrazy47) | 884 comments I had a very uneven month.

I had some books which I adored:
Sweet Revenge (New Orleans Trilogy, #2) by Nina Bruhns Love Me (The Keatyn Chronicles, #4) by Jillian Dodd Devil in Winter (Wallflowers, #3) by Lisa Kleypas (re-read)

I was very disappointed in a couple of books that I didn't finish at all:
Slammed (Slammed, #1) by Colleen Hoover Unscrupulous (The Manhattanites, #2) by Avery Aster Mannequin (Mannequin, #1) by Olivia Besse Unteachable by Leah Raeder

Maybe I should only read pink and purple books and stay away from the black and white ones xD
