Penney (pschoener) | 3553 comments October Pick-It possibilities.
Done!
Finished The Hunger Games. 10/12


A - 5 star read: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
This is a YA book, but the storyline and characters are well done. I really enjoyed it.

B - TBR pick: Ransom by Julie Garwood
I love all of Julie Garwood’s historical books and this is one of my favorites, and I see you haven’t read it. Scottish hunks and a mystery!

C - New to You: Dead Witch Walking by Kim Harrison
The first book in The Hollows series, which I think is one of the best paranormal/UF series around. Rachel is a bit screwed up but Jinx and Ivy bring a humorous balance to her life.

D - For you and Me: How To Marry a Millionaire Vampire by Kerrelyn Sparks
This book has been on my TBR pile for what seems forever and everyone keeps telling me it’s a great series.

E - Surprise Pleasure: The Secret History of the Pink Carnation by Lauren Willig
When I first received this book, I was a bit skeptical of the whole Victorian spy mystery with a contemporary romance. I liked it so much I’ve continued to read the series.

F - Extra pick: The Duke of Shadows by Meredith Duran
A wonderful historical romance set in India, with a heroine that is strong and independent. This was the first Meredith Duran book I read and won’t be the last.



The Hunger Games (Hunger Games, #1) by Suzanne Collins Ransom (Highlands' Lairds, #2) by Julie Garwood Dead Witch Walking (Rachel Morgan/The Hollows, #1) by Kim Harrison How To Marry a Millionaire Vampire (Love at Stake, #1) by Kerrelyn Sparks The Secret History of the Pink Carnation (Pink Carnation, #1) by Lauren Willig The Duke of Shadows by Meredith Duran .

Penney (pschoener) | 3553 comments Awesome October Recs from Autum

Read:
The Lost Recipe for Happiness 10/4
Fifty Shades of Grey 10/15


Pop:

-Graceling I'm sure you have seen the hype apocalyptic themes have right now, and this book has been a constant favorite among broad readers.

-Practice Makes Perfect Julie James jumped to the stardom with her first comtep novel: "Just Sexiest man alive". "Practice makes perfect" has great ratings, and its a personal favorite of mine, because not only the characterization was great, but their interaction was really hilarious. The anticipation was better than the romance itself (IMO)

Golden Oldies:

-The Beauty Within: You are pretty good keeping a neat TBR unlike me..ahem! This book has been in your shelves for a little while. The premise was interesting enough to make me add it my own shelf :)

-Dirty: I always say that, when it comes to Megan Hart, you either like her or not. You`ve read her before, and liked it. I personally love love this book.

Rock:

hmmm there are so many to choose from with yummy covers, but i finally settled for this one.

-No Place to Run. This HOT series keep getting better, and you gave the first installment a high rating.

Classical:

I dont usually have books with several authors, that are good enough to recommend other than anthologies.However,Good Omens fits the bill here.

Country:

-Annie's Song: I have not read this book, but it has been recommended to me time after time because of the complexity and emotionality of the plot.

- Montana Sky: you have read quite a few Nora Roberts, this is one of the few cowboy books that i have read and enjoyed.

Adult contemporary

Hot Head: While browsing your shelves, i saw a couple of M/M books, this one is a very good one.

-Catch A Mate andSimply Irresistible while being different types of contemporary romance, they are equally fun to read.

Indie

-Fallen from Grace: it will definitely qualify as one of the best 2011 reads. There are so many underlined plots than the eye meets with this book, that it took me by surprise.

-Fifty Shades of Grey: you and I, recently added this book to our TBRs and it seems to have great reviews.

HIP HOP:

-Daughter of Smoke and Bone: i know you dont have this book on your TBR, but the premise, plus the good reviews, could be a book that we both enjoy.

-Jazz

-The Lost Recipe for Happiness. I was pleasantly surprised when we had this book in common, because i`ve always wanted to read it as a buddy read.
