September Book Summary

September was a very good month for me. I am very happy about this since August was such a disappointment. I read a total of 3 books that I felt deserved an A rating! The highlight for me, of course, was that the long awaited Faefever finally hit the shelves. Luckily for me it lived up to the high expectations I had for it. Unfortunately, another series I was following didn't. But hey, you win some you lose some.

1. Warrior, Knight (Futuristic/Time travel) Rating: C-
2. My Lord and Spymaster, Bourne (Historical) Rating: A-
3. Mr. Fix-it, Hubbard (Contemporary) Rating: B-
4. Faefever, Moning (Urban Fantasy) Rating: A
5. Broken, Armstrong (Urban Fantasy) Rating: B-
6. Date with the Devil, Rupprecht (Contemporary) Rating: C+
7. Dark Embrace, Joyce (Time-Travel) Rating: C
8. Chaotic*, Armstrong (Urban Fantasy) Rating: B
9. Unmasqued, Gale (Historical/Erotic) Rating: C+
10. All Through the Night, Brockmann (Rom. Suspense) Rating: B
11. Years, Spencer (Western) Rating: B+
12. Broken, Hart (Contemporary/Erotic) Rating: A-
13. Into the Flame, Dodd (Paranormal) Rating: C
14. Dead Until Dark, Harris (Urban Fantasy) Rating: B

*Chaotic was a story in the anthology Dates From Hell. I haven't reviewed it because Chaotic was the only story I read in the anthology. I might go back and read the others and when I do then I will review it. What did I think of Chaotic, you ask? Well, I liked it. It was short though and it left me clammoring for more of Hope and Karl.

Ooo I'm so glad you liked Hart's BROKEN so much! I need to read that (its in my TBR).

I also have THE LORD AND MY SPYMASTER. I'm too lazy to search your blog, but do you remember what grade you gave the first Bourne novel?

Yes Christine you must read it! Actually, one of the reasons I decided to read another book by Megan was because of your really great review of Tempted a while back. I am going to start reading that one next!

I gave The Spymasters Lady an A or an A-. I really liked it.

LOL, you have two Broken in your list :) funny how titles can be repeated ;) Anyway, seems like you had a good reading month :)

Jill D. said...

Nath, Yep. I had a good month. Thank goodness. I hate it when my reading mojo goes away!

Wow, that's a bunch of great books on your list there. I have the Unmasqued book in my TBR pile but after seeing so/so reviews for it, I keep putting it down.


I enjoyed All Through the Night too! Can't wait for Dark of Night. =)

I haven't heard of Dark of the Night. I am off to go check it out!
