Trio | 2268 comments I'm reading Under His Heel: A Kidnapping
Listening to the audiobook One Man's Trash
and reading an ARC of Bad Moon Arising

I like the idea of reading a Christmas book in July Fran, I'm going to take a page from your book and adding Santa Baby to my July reads.

Ooh, how is One Man's Trash? I have it on my kindle but haven't gotten around to it yet. Seems interesting though.

I'm currently reading The Girl in 6E (Deanna Madden, #1) by A.R. Torre and I'm almost done with it.

Trio | 2268 comments Jamie, One Man's Trash is amazing... there's a bunch of taboo/trigger things in it, so just beware. I've been compiling them for my review, so it's a work in progress and is a mess, but here it is (view spoiler)


Jamie (TheRebelliousReader) (iambrucewayne) | 927 comments Wow, that is a lot of triggers! Thanks for the heads up! I had a feeling it would be on the darker side just from the synopsis but not that dark. Glad you're enjoying it. I'm definitely intrigued now. Might have to work it into my tbr for the month.

MountainKat | 23476 comments I am starting off July with Rainy Day Friends - about halfway and loving it!


message 8: by Samantha (new)

Samantha | 16 comments I'm reading "Birthday Girl" by Penelope Douglas. I think she just became one of my favorite authors. Really steamy reads. I'm also reading "P.S. I Still Love You" by Jenny Han and "The Darkest Minds" by Alexandra Bracken-I'm trying to decide if I really liked this one or if I am going to get rid of it after seeing the movie.

I finished it. It's very, very cute! The hype kind of ruined it for me because I thought it was going to be so groundbreaking and different but it's not. Still a good read though.

Yes, I finished The Kiss Quotient also this month. I was really looking forward to it as Cosmo suggested it (That's where I get a lot of my picks. lol.) Your description is spot on, though. Adorable, but not ground-breaking. Not disappointing though. I really loved Stella Lane like a little sister.

Incidentally, I also just finished the The Rosie Project The Rosie Project (Don Tillman, #1) by Graeme Simsion by Graeme Simsion which I think tackles the same subject matter but more effectively. The fact that it's in the first person helps too as you really get into the mind of someone with Asperger's.

Taylor Carroll | 1 comments I’m new here, HI!! I write a lot so I bounce around from genre to genre with my mind consistently going 100 miles an hour, but I’ve been stuck on RomCom’s for a few months now. The past few days I have read a few books by @R.S Grey. These include: Arrogant Devil, Not So Nice Guy, and The Allure of Julian LaFray. I LOVE her sense of humor. Though the third book was by far the best.
