Saying Goodbye to Summer Spotlight

Hope you all found lots of fun summer books to read! Special thanks to all the fabulous guest posters who participated in Summer Spotlight - Jodie, Alexa, Steph, Laura and Ruby - thank you so much!

  1. How funny...I'm not very familiar with any of the books you read in August. And I thought I knew everything out there.

  2. Hunting Lila was my favourite read of August too! September has some great books coming up :)

  3. Looks like you had a great month! Keep up the great work! I love your blog!

  4. Obviously I need to read Hunting Lila when I get the chance :)

  5. So glad Lola and the Boy Next Door is one of your September picks!

  6. Looking forward to your review of Enthralled: Paranormal Diversions! I just like that cover and I hope you will give me a great reason to buy it. lol. ;) Have a wonderful September.

  7. Thanks for the comments! There are some awesome books out in September & LOLA is definitely top of my list!

    @Jacinda - Hunting Lila is great! It's not out in the US but you should be able to get a copy pretty easily on TBD.

    @Nina - I must buy a copy of Entralled soon. Each story is a paranormal road trip. Sounds so good! :)

  8. Daughter of Smoke and Bone is a book I really enjoyed. I read it in Denmark and it totally rocked my holidays:)
