50 Books Challenge: September
Weekend & Books

Here are books I've read in September. It not much but it so much better than it was in the last couple of months where it has been a slow reading for me lately. Since January I've read 26 books! I'm hoping to reach 50 this year. I don't think I reach it last year, and I was disappointed. Pray for me that I reach it this year! I've always enjoyed Jill Shalvis' books so it wasn't surprise when I read the two books on this list and also enjoyed them too. AUSSIE RULE is oldie but the goodies *g*. After reading ANIMAL MAGNETISM, I'm really looking forward to reading Dell and Jade story in ANIMAL ATTRACTION this Tuesday! And I'm excited for Chloe and Sawyer story in HEAD OVER HEELS, which releasing in November -- almost there but I want it now. I just can't wait to read it! *g*. Below are books I read this September.....

22. Aussie Rule by Jill Shalvis – 4.5 stars
23. Going All In by Jess Dee (e-book) – 4 stars
24. Call Me Irresistible by SEP – 4 stars
25. Simply Irresistible by Jill Shalvis – 4.5 stars
26. Nauti Dream by Lora Leigh - 4.5 stars

I went book shopping Saturday and bought a book and my favorite drink for the moment, Mocha Coconut Frapp. It was a blessing day, sun was playing out in 78 breezy weather. Feel nice outside. But am pretty sure it will turn cold soon, so am just going to take the Saturday weather while I still have it. After shopping at Barnes and Noble, I head over to my friend's house where she was BBQ cookout there and I devour the sausage on the bed of wheat bread and fill with tomatoes, lettuce, onion, BBQ sauce, mustard and ketchup. Or we can replace the sausage for hot dogs on it's bun if we prefer it. Also we add in chips with dip, such a crunchy way to eat it after biting those nice juicy sausage in wheat bread. And I was ready to eat it up! Sunday was my usual busy day, and beside chores I spent the afternoon watching the football games on TV. I'm very proud of our two football teams winning this week. If our college football team keep up their ranks, they can go for the champion!! Keep up the great job boys!

These are books I'm looking forward to reading this month of October (see below). I hope I have the right release date for each books correctly. If not, please let me know. I'm definitely excited about HOLLY LANE by Toni Blake. Been waiting for that book for long time now. It just seem like forever! I've read Blake's first three books of her Destiny series and really love them. HOLLY LANE is book #4 and will come out in couple weeks. WHISPER FALLS (book #3) made a good impression for me and the love between Tessa and Lucky was emotionally sweet. I couldn't help but fall in love with these two characters. The book is full of emotions that tugs on your heart strings. It's redemption about living life to the fullest and make you loves the characters for who they are. Very sexy, passion and intense. I love how Tessa lives her life everyday in good spirit. This book was by far my favorite of series. Beside ONE RECKLESS SUMMER, that is. So if you like contemporary romance with bad boy heroes, friendship, laughter, sweet, sexy and a little dark secret in a small town community then pick up this series!

This Tuesday I'll be reading ANIMAL ATTRACTION by Jill Shalvis, once I go and buy myself a copy of the book at Barnes and Noble. A good birthday present for me *g*. I just finish reading THE SWEETEST THINGS, also by Jill Shalvis and I love it! I'm on Shalvis' roll (okay that probably didn't sound right *g*) and I can't wait to read it. So...what going on your side of the world? Happy reading! :)
