Nichole | 512 comments I read 21 books this month. However most of them were novellas and 3 stars.

My only 5 stars this month were:
The Eternity Cure (Blood of Eden, #2) by Julie Kagawa - I liked this better than the first book. That's rare! But I have to give credit to Jackal. He gives it some comic relief and I loved him!
Blameless (Parasol Protectorate, #3) by Gail Carriger -Loving this series. I haven't tried these on audio and I really want to.
Ransom (Highlands' Lairds, #2) by Julie Garwood -I have become obsessed with Julie Garwood historicals. She's my new favorite HR author. I LOVE them!

And this was only 4 stars for me but I really enjoyed Just Like Heaven (Smythe-Smith Quartet #1) by Julia Quinn .
