    Hi, Jennifer!

    February was a terrible month for me in terms of reading–I think I read maybe 6 books, bringing my total for the year to 36.

    And, yes, I’d love to read Really Something, too! 😉

    Thanks for checking in!

    “I’d love to read Really Something”

    Actually, I would. I love Shirley’s stuff. I didn’t expect to like her non ‘Romance with recipes’ stuff. Add, if you haven’t read it already, THE OTHER WIFE. Nothing about the blurb caught my interest but, I found myself letting the toddler watch extra TV so I could finish the book.

    Oooh! Get her for your blog and give her your finish the statement thingy! I’d love to see her answers. She gives great chat!

    I might have to join in on your reading race. I like a bit of competition! 😉

  6. Jennifer Y says:

    TB: I loved THE OTHER WIFE! I wanted to read even more after I was finished and remember asking her at a chat or something if she planned on sequels for the book. I didn’t think I’d like it at first, but was immediately caught up in the story and loved it.

  7. Amelia says:

    Hi Jennifer,

    “I’d love to read Really Something”
    As to reading – my reviewed count hit 34 today, but I think I’m about 30 books behind in reviews :-X. I don’t even remember if I’ve reviewed books anymore, and it’s getting to be a mess. Whoops. I read a few new books (as in newly released) – Extreme Danger by Shannon McKenna, Dawn’s Awakening by Lora Leigh, did I mention The Wicked Ways of a Duke by Laura Lee Guhrke yet? A bunch of categories, and some old books too. =) It’s been a good month for books, and I’m looking forward to reading some of the books that just came out this past Tuesday. Oh! And I read “Champagne Rules” by Susan Lyons and I definitely want the other 3 books. So sad I didn’t win her contest here 😛 I could have discovered her even sooner!

  12. Eva S says:

    Hi Jennifer,
    great list with many interesting books. I’ll have to look for some of them…My goal is at hold right now, I’ve to wait for my eyes… Recently read books are “Shadow Music” by Julie Garwood, “Jacob ” by Jacquelyn Frank and “A Compromised Lady” by Elizabeth Rolls.

    And yes, I’d love to read Really Something!

  13. Helen says:

    Good on you Jennifer I have read 19 books so far this year and I thought that was a lot most of them have been historical and 1 paranormal. A few have been new to me authors that I have really enjoyed.
    I am reading Celeste Bradley’s The Charmer at the moment and I am loving it, it is part of The Liars Club series and it is no 4 I have just orderd no 5 and also her new one from her new series.
    A good recomendation if anyone has not read it yet is The Stolen Princess by Anne Gracie such a wonderful voice and fantastic read.
    I also read Debra Mullins’s Three Nights an older one of hers and the first one that I read by Debra and really loved it as well.
    Not sure what I will read next I have a lot to choose from (can never have too many books LOL) but will have to decide tonight as I am nearly finished The Charmer.
    BTW I would love to read Really Something.
    Have Fun

  19. bluecat says:

    I’m re-reading Laurell K Hamilton’s Anita Blake series.

  20. Beth R says:

    I feel like I’ve read more this year so far that I did last year.

  21. Cherie J says:

    “I’d love to read Really Something”

    I am impressed with how much reading I have gotten done. So far this year I have been averaging about 14 books a month which is an improvement over last year. Hope I can keep it up but it is tough when you have two kids under the age of 5.

    “I’d love to read Really Something”
    Hi Jennifer! I love to read what others have read. Reading new to me authors are exciting! I put my reads of e books and prints together, I just note they are in ebook in case someone needs to find and will realized they might not be available in print as well. I’m making a list of those authors I haven’t read and checking them out!

    I haven’t finished writing up what I read yet, but I just started a journal to log what I read because I’m awful with forgetting titles! Some of the reads that really stuck with me this month, have been Romance Suspense. I really don’t read much of that genre unless its a intense romance within it. I think because I got burned out with some I read that were romance suspense and more I read of the author, the less and less romance was in it until it was straight suspense. I love my romances in the books!
    Some books that t I can recall at the top of my head:
    RIDING WILD by Jaci Burton (print)
    TO THE LIMIT by Cindy Gerard (print)
    ebook by Roxanne Springer (Whiskey Creek Press Torrd)
    Charlotte Featherstone (ebook from Spice Briefs)
    ONCE HE LOVES by Sara Bennett (print)
    TANGLED WEB by Alexi (from eXtasy books, erotic historical)

    I told you I was not good in remembering titles, LOL. So I thought I did pretty good, LOL. But this month I know without checking has been a much better month of reading for me! I had a blast! I just try not to get disappointed in myself if I don’t read as much as the month before, etc. I t ry not to compare myself to others. I just have some tough months, and other months I feel great and just read one after another. I’m so proud of many of you that get so much read. The more I read the more I want to read. LOL

  23. Caffey says:

    I wanted to say too I loved reading all your lists here!
    Helen, I too put Celeste Bradley’s books on my wishlist. I see her and others put out their books 3 in a row. Sounds like you had a great month of historical reads. I sometimes just want to read historicals like I did once reading the six Governess books of Christina Dodd in a row. I never read so many by the same author together. It worked out great. Other times I must have a variety. I think t hat was the only time I did that. But have gone reading historicals all month, those are comfort reads! And they do me so much good!
    Crystal, Same with Nicole Jordan putting three books out in a row. I have her PLEASURE A LADY coming in the mail soon. I’ve loved reading her books as well.

    Now I’m off to check out more of all these books from you all and Jennifer listed. LOL
    PS how come ‘historicals’ is not a word! I hate that its always highlighted red as a typo, ROFL
