    I’d love to read Scandal’s Daughter. I’m very impressed with you reading 26 books. I think I do pretty well when I make it to 15-18 books in a month.

  3. limecello says:

    Oh gosh – I have no idea how many books I read this month. 😦 Not as many as I’d like. I feel like I’m tired and have no time constantly. Likely because I have 10-13 hour days at school. Meh.

  4. limecello says:

    Oh! But uh… not sure when I read them – I’m loving Susan Mallery’s Bakery sisters books – just got the last one today, and super enjoyed Teresa Medeiros’s newest.

  5. azteclady says:

    Lemme see… Read Nalini Singh’s Hostage to Pleasure–awesome book. Read Suzanne Brockmann’s Into the Fire–AWESOME book. Read Ann Aguirre’s Wanderlust–oh man awesome book. Read Linda Howard’s Death Angel–AWESOME book. I know I’m missing books, but my brain is mush. I didn’t read any “new to me” authors this month, though…

    Of course, I’d love to read Scandal’s Daughter 😀

I know I read a few more, but can’t remember all the names.

    I read a few books in August but the one that stand out for me was Wagered Heart by Robin Lee Hatcher and Brides of the West by Michele Ann Young, both were very good reads.

  10. Fedora says:

    OK, as far as I can tell, August added another 38 books–234 for the year. I finally read Monica McCarty’s Highlander trilogy and I can’t wait for her new one to come out early next year!
