Gigi | 1149 comments Jennefer usually starts this thread *gigi bows to Jennefer*. So, I hope she wont mind that I started it this month. However, I'm just itching to hear which books stood out for everyone last month.

For me they were:
Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake by Sarah MacLean The Bride (Lairds' Fiancees, #1) by Julie Garwood

Hmmm...I can't think of any bad reads this month.

What about you?

Dee (austhokie) | 7316 comments The Cookbook Collector by Allegra Goodman - I was really skeptical about this one because its got some pretty bad reviews on GR, but I ended up enjoying it, even if it was slow to begin with...

my only DNF of the month was Girls Gone Mild Young Women Reclaim Self-Respect and Find It's Not Bad to Be Good by Wendy Shalit - I felt like I was being told I was a slut and would be unsuccessful in life while reading it (I lasted all of 50 pages)...

Dee (austhokie) | 7316 comments basically, the moral of the book (from what I got) was absintence is good; if you like sex you are a slut and won't be successful in life...

Yz the Whyz (whyz) | 9327 comments Favorite read for September was Lisa Kleypas' Mine Till Midnight. Also my first Kleypas book.

Book I thought I would not like but ended up liking it:
Tess Gerritsen's The Bone Garden. New to the author, and not my usual genre. It even made me cry. Recommended in audiobook format. Fabulous reader.

Book that was promising but ended up just okay:
Diane Setter field's The Thirteenth Tale.
Beautiful prose, but in the end I just wanted it to end.
