January Summary

Here we are now almost halfway through February and I can't believe I forgot to post my reads for January. Duh! I almost didn't make my reading goal of 12 books for January so I had to squeeze in a couple of really short reads. I read two Harlequin Mini's and that bumped me right up to a total of 14 reads. I was able to read both books for the two challenges I entered.

It was a mixed bag this month, but for the most part I read some good books. The standout for me was Kelley Armstrong's Personal Demon. It was a very strong addition to her Women of the Underworld series.

LOL, I didn't even realized you haven't posted your summary either! But then, it doesn't really matter because you review all your books :)

Glad you're enjoying the Women of the Otherworld series so much! I think I need to go back and read Personal Demon and Living with the Dead over again.

I just finished reading Living with the Dead tonight. I really love this series. I haven't written my review yet. I am going to ponder how I feel about it first. When does her next book come out? I am already chomping at the bit for more. Of course, I have Men of the Otherworld to read, but that is in the past. I want more about Hope and now Robyn too.

LOL :) Wasn't the overall story of Living with the Dead great? Have to say, the Cabals can really be scary! :P

Frostbitten comes out in October :( Very long way... and it'll be Elena and Clay. Can't wait :P

Hope you enjoy Men of the Otherworld!

Oh man! October! *Sigh* It is just too far away. I am totally digging this series.
