My September list of books read

Posted by reviewer | 11:24 p.m. | | 11 comments »

Twenty one books this month. Thats not too bad. I started the Anita Blake series. My round up of the first six books is here. I have since completed a few more from the series, but I had to stop as my library is missing some of them them. I can't stand to read out of order so I have asked the library to order the missing books.

I keep saying that I wont be buying any books till I finish my TBR pile, but it seems that I like to lie about that. Oops. It's not my fault though. Blame Chapters. Every time I go near that side of town I can hear it calling out to me. I have to go in. It would be a sin not to. Books need to be bought and read. Sheesh.

My ebook TBR is nearly as big as my print pile. Tsk tsk tsk. If I believed in non sexual physical punishment I would ask someone to slap my hands. Seriously, I don't even know where to start. I get extremely over whelmed every time I turn on my ebookwise.
It could be worse, right? I could have nothing to read. Boy, that would really suck.

My books read last month were,

1)Skin to skin by Dionne Galace
2)Tanner's Scheme by Lora Leigh
3)Slave to sensation by Nalini Singh
4)Circus of the damned by Laurell K Hamilton
5)Brazen by Maya Banks
6)Annabelle's courtship by Lucy Monroe
7)Sacking the quarterback by Carol Lynne
8)Stranded by Eve Vaughn
9)The lunatic cafe by Laurell K Hamilton
10)Bloody bones by Laurell K Hamilton
11)Lean mean thirteen by Janet Evanovich
12)The killing dance by Lurell K Hamilton
13)Burnt offerings by Laurell K Hamilton
14)For her pleasure by Maya Banks
15)Blue moon by Laurell K Hamilton
16)Again the magic by Lisa Kleypas
17)Lover unbound by JR Ward
18)To Serve and Submit by Susan Wright
19)Sex, Lies, and Online Dating by Rachel Gibson
20)Sink or swim by Alexis Fleming
21)Lessons in love by Kate Davies

    Keep your eye on Fictionwise. I picked up ALL of LKH's Anita Blake and Merry Gentry series in ebook once with 40% micro rebates (cause having multiple print copies AND audio books just wasn't enuff *snort*). I'd buy a couple then checkout to get the rebates. Then get a couple free, then buy a couple, etc.

    Also, if you buy one or two of a series, I've had them send me discount codes for the rest of the series.

    We are three romance fiction readers who are interested in finding out more about readers like ourselves. What began as a conversation over coffee has turned into a project that has taken on a life of its own. We’ve explored public librarians’ attitudes toward romance fiction and its readers on both state and national levels with research funded by a grant from Romance Writers of America (

    Of course, the more we’ve found out, the more questions we have. We’ve reached the point where we need answers to several of these questions from romance readers. We are interested in romance fiction readers as both consumers and conservators of the genre. From what we’ve found, romance fiction readers do not depend on public libraries for their books. We would like to better understand where romance fiction readers acquire their books, why they prefer particular sources, and what they do with their books after reading them. We appreciate your time and consideration.

    Our questions:
    • What are your preferred sources for the romance fiction you read?
    • Why do you choose these sources rather than or in addition to public libraries?
    • Do you keep all or some of the books you read? How do you decide which books to keep?
    • What do you see yourself doing with your personal library of romance fiction books in the future?

    Informed Consent:
    The University of Missouri requires that research involving human subjects include an informed consent to ensure that participants’ rights are protected. As is customary, pseudonyms will be substituted in all data for all names of persons, public libraries/public library systems, cities, towns and counties. Every effort will be made to adequately disguise the participants’ identities and specific geographic location in any published materials or presentations. The print-outs of any responses will remain in the direct physical possession of the researchers. Relevant portions of the transcripts will be deleted upon request of any participant who decides to withdraw from the study.

    Participants have the right to withdraw from the study at any time, no questions asked.

    Refusal to participate, or withdrawal from the research project, will have no impact on the participant.

    Do not hesitate to call, write or e-mail a member of the research team if you have questions or concerns about this research study.

    21 books, that's actually awesome :D I really love the picture, Levi looks like a doll LOL :)

    and there should be a book: Blame it on Chapters :P I totally understand you :)

  7. Chantal // 10:23 p.m.  

    Hi Izzy, thanks :)

    Hi Zeek, Yep! Thats Tanner. It was good. The very first Breed book, Tempting the beast, will always be my favourite though.

    Hi Mad, my husband took the picture to prove my addiction. Like I need proof, lol.
    I had been sitting on the bench when he got annoyed and asked why he is playing with the kids all by himself. So I grabbed the little on and started to swing him...while I read. LMAO.

    Hi Bev, good idea about Fictionwise. If my library doesn't order the missing books, then I'll check for them in eformat.

    Hi nath, thanks! If I recall he was glued to DH when you were here. See, he does want me sometimes for something other than nursing :)

  8. Erin // 12:02 a.m.  

    Wow you read a LOT lol. As for Cassie Edwards, sorry I didn't care for the book Savage Love, maybe it was just one of the bad ones.

    Out of your list I have read the early Laurell K. Hamilton ones, the early ones are amazingly addictive and the best series out there (up to book 10)

    Hi Chantal,

    Thanks for mentioning my new release, "The Last Celtic Witch". I'm glad you liked it. The romance novel is very near and dear to my heart. It is the first book in the Celtic Series. I am almost finished with the second book, "The Celtic Witch and the Sorcerer", so I think Resplendence Publishing will be giving you that one next.
    You'll find a big surprise in this novel. I've pushed the boundries even further. LOL

    All the best

    Hi Lyn, welcome to my blog :)

    I did like the last celtic witch very much. I'm glad to hear that it's part of a series.
    When I sent in my review for it I said that I was hoping it was a series, so yay!

    Hi Chantal,

    You'll be happy to know Resplendence Publishing picked up the next book in the Celtic Series. If you liked reading "The Last Celtic Witch", you'll love the 2nd book, "The Celtic Witch and the Sorcerer" - available Jan 2008 at

    I hope you have a magical day.
