September Reads

Private Arrangements by Sherry Thomas -- I enjoy stories that focus around couples who are or have been married and are finding themselves in a situation that gives them a second chance at love.

A Perfect Bride by Samantha James -- This is the first book in SJ's Sterling Family trilogy and it hit the spot! Looking forward to books 2 & 3.

Sweet Spot and Sweet Trouble by Susan Mallery -- Books 2 & 3 of her Keyes Sister's trilogy. Highly enjoyable.

Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris -- The inspiration for HBO's True Blood series, this is the first book in the Sookie Stackhouse series. Vampires, telepaths, shape shifters, oh my!

Keepsake by Tess Gerritsen -- Another great thriller from a master! Mummies, what's not to like? :D

The Charm School by Susan Wiggs -- A great historical and the first of SW's Calhoune series. I'm looking forward to more of these rereleased books.

Bloodfever by Karen Marie Moning -- Book two of KMM's Fever series finally made it to mass market paperback. I had read it before, but read it again as I wait for the library to tell me I'm next in line for Faefever.

Agnes and the Hitman by Jennifer Crusie & Bob Mayer -- Hilarious fun! Better than their first collaboration.

Dangerous Games by Lora Leigh -- Hot! Smokin' hot! That's all I can say about book on in LL's Tempting SEALs series.

Karma Girl and Hot Mama by Jennifer Estep -- Sex. Lies. And superheroes. A winning combination for JE's campy and well written Bigtime series! I have book 3 on my night stand now!


  1. I really loved Private Arrangements. It was such an emotionally powerful book, I was suprised by it. I recently read smthng that had the same storyline, but instead of making it into smthng great like PA, it fell back on cliches and didn't really stand out. I can't even remember the name of the book. I have Delicious, but it didn't keep my attention the way PA did.

  2. I have both Sherry Thomas books, but I have yet to read any of them. I also have given October to Keepsake. I will finish it if it's the last thing I do. TV coming back really put a stop to my reading. Plus, I'm super crazy busy this month. So, we'll see. I wouldn't be surprised if I didn't read anything at all this month.

  3. Oh! and I agree with Agnes and the Hitman. I read that when it was first released and it was hysterically funny. The second time around, they really flowed well together and the viewpoints were more cohesive I thought.
