4 Book Labor Day Monday


Had a fabulous Labor Day Weekend! Hung out and relaxed with the fam. Yesterday was a gorgeous, sunny, cool, fallish day here outside of Beantown, and I lounged on the deck with a parcel of books. For some inexplicable reason, I sucked down 4, yes 4! romance novels yesterday. Lest you think I wasted the entire day doing this, I would like to point out that I also completed a 2-hour hike with the fam, and hosted a "hot schmoes night" (s'mores) at my house for the neighborhood kids. I am an extremely fast reader, especially with re-reads. (For the record, 5 books in a single day is the Penelope Record!).

Here's my Labor Day Labors:

1) Amanda Quick's The Paid Companion: Have re-read this a zillion times. I love Amanda Quick, and this book totally rocks. 

2) Christine Feehan's Dark Legend: Gabriel, I love you! One of my favorites of the Dark series, this book introduces Skyler, who will hopefully soon have her own book. 

3) Eloisa James' Duchess by Night: This is a seriously funky, outside-of-the-box historical romance. And I really like it for exactly that reason. Not your typical romance novel, but a very satisfying read.

4) Patricia Grasso's Enticing the Prince: First time reading this author. Some quirky things about her voice happening here, but nevertheless had an excellent plot and I couldn't put it down. In fact, I am now going to order the rest of the books about this cool Russian family. Made me want to eat blinis with caviar. Yzumitelno! (marvelous!)

This week I have 2 new books coming my way from Amazon...Dreamfever by Karen Marie Moning, and Dark Slayer by Christine Feehan. Hope everyone had a nice weekend!
