         ~ All Together Now: An October Group Challenge ~
We’re going to see if we can all pitch in and spell something.

For October let’s try the words “October Awareness: Time to Think Pink.”

RULES: Only ONE book per person may be submitted. You may reserve your letter now, on a first come, first serve. However, you may change your mind later in the month, just let us know as soon as possible.

Read a book with a title, series name, author’s (first or last name), character (first or last name), that begin with the letter that correspond to letters of the words we have chosen. You may ignore the indefinite and definite articles (a, an, the, etc.).

Example of Spell-It-Out in Post #2 below. If you need to know, here is info on how to Add a Book or Bookcover Link.

Anywhere is fine, Vintage. However, your link only takes people to the book's home page.

More specifically, tour review is here.

message 37: by Elena (new)

Elena | 105 comments I finished Night of Fire. Steampunk is fun to read. This series might not be as good as the Kate Daniels books but having strong heroines and heroes who do not patronize them is just wonderful.

BJ Rose (bjrose) | 848 comments BJ Rose wrote: "Could I have one of the 'O's? I'll read Only Beloved by Mary Balogh"

Finished and loved Only Beloved, the final book in the Survivors' Club series. Not quite a strong 5*, but a fitting finish to this wonderful series. Now I'll have to start again from the beginning, and enjoy them all back-to-back.

kathie (kathie-ellen) | 117 comments I finished Without Words by Ellen O'Connell (a couple of weeks ago actually) and almost forgot to update here. A solid 4 stars for me.

Molly, I actually met Lorraine Heath when my friend and I went to the Historical Romance Retreat in Spokane in September. We chatted with her and it was such a thrill because I love her books. So she managed to get me an ARC via Edelweiss. I will be posting a review on my blog and Goodreads a little nearer the publication date.

Yes! I was putting it off because I was trying read the rest of the series in order & got sidetracked. It actually didn't make a difference that I didn't get them all read, as I had read the sisters' stories and Say Yes to the Marquess, so I knew the secondary characters in this one. Love them all!
