Desperado (lethallovely) | 822 comments What were your favorite books this month? Hunt the Moon (Cassandra Palmer, #5) by Karen Chance Magic Slays (Kate Daniels, #5) by Ilona Andrews Noble Intentions (Noble, #1) by Katie MacAlister Chasin' Eight (Rough Riders, #11) by Lorelei James

Which book(s) didn't work for you this month? Defiance (Strange Angels, #4) by Lilith Saintcrow Darkness Unleashed (Guardians of Eternity, #5) by Alexandra Ivy Delicious by Sherry Thomas

Did you get hooked on a new great series, this month? No. The only FIS books I read this month were Leaving Paradise (Leaving Paradise, #1) by Simone Elkeles & Trey (Red Hot & Blue, #1) by Cat Johnson & both were disappointments.

Did you try something new from your norm, that was an enjoyable surprise? Yes. I don't usually read anthologies because as much as I love certain authors, his/her novellas tends to be an epic fail when in condensed form. But I read Inked (World of the Lupi, #5.5) by Karen Chance this month & actually enjoyed it very much.

Did one of your favorite authors disappoint you this month? Thankfully, none of my favorite authors disappointed me in June. They more than exceeded my expectations. Yay!

Biggest disappointment had to be The Girl in the Steel Corset (Steampunk Chronicles, #1) by Kady Cross . I was excited about it and had heard some really good things. Thought it would be a good steampunk to start with - but didn't even finish the book.....
