Wrap Up: Sassy September

September was an awesome month here at Caught in a FAB Romance!!!  I read a few good books, did a few giveaways, interviewed one of my favorite authors!!

Here's what I read:
1.  Until There Was You by Kristan Higgins (4 stars)
2.  The Night Circus by Erin Morganstern (4 stars)
3.  Good Girls Don't by Victoria Dahl (4 stars)
4.  Last Breath by Rachel Caine (4 stars) review to come at Fiction Vixen's place
5.  Bloodlines by Richelle Mead (4 stars)
6.  Bad Boys Do by Victoria Dahl (4 stars)
7.  Real Men Will by Victoria Dahl (2 stars)
8.  Tigers and Devils by Sean Kennedy (5 stars)
9.  Silver Shark by Ilona Andrews (4 stars)
10. Willing Victim by Cara McKenna (4 stars)
11. In Bed with a Highlander by Maya Banks (4 stars)
12. Utterly Charming by Kristine Grayson (3 stars) review to come
13. Bear, Otter, and the Kid by TJ Klune (4 stars) review to come


I need to stop a minute and tell you about The Night Circus.  I have tried and tried to write a review, but nothing I write expresses how I feel about the book.  It was amazing:  magical, heartbreaking, wonderous, dark.  This is a book you need to set aside time to read - it's not for reading while you're on hold with the cable company, or while you're waiting in the pick-up line at school.  You need to pay attention or you'll miss the nuances that make this book so special.  It took me forever to finish; my copy is battered and torn in several places, I took it with me everywhere.  I highly recommend.

Now, what did Pam review in September?  Quite a varied selection:
1.  Sweet Venom by Terra Lynn Childs (4 stars)
2.  Chosen by Paula Bradley (3 stars)
3.  Where Demons Fear to Tread by Stephanie Chong (4 stars)
4.  In a Treacherous Court by Michelle Diener (2 1/2 stars)
5.  Deep Disclosure by Dee Davis (2 stars)

In addition, I interviewed one of my favorite authors - Lauren Dane (that giveaway is closed, btw).  It was so hard not to fangirl squee all the questions, lol.

Some great new covers are out for Molly Harper and Chloe Neill, and October is looking to be a FABulous month of new releases!  I've got a few author interviews and giveaways coming up on October, so WATCH THIS SPACE!!

How was your September?  
Read anything you absolutely have to share?  
Found some new covers or something you want to spotlight?


  1. I had a great September reading month! Read so many good books, and a few disappointing ones. My recommendation for this month is Shadow Walker series by Allyson James. Amazing, good, and filled with Native American legends.

  2. My book club just picked The Night Circus so I'll be reading it soon. It sounds pretty intense. September was a good month for me. Lots of A and B+ reads and nothing below a C+. I have to mention a Regency farce ebook that I picked up for $.99 by Katie MacAlister called Noble Intentions. I haven't laughed so hard in ages. I just couldn't control myself. Highly recommended.

  3. Aurian: I'm so glad to hear you had a great month! I'll have to check out the Shadow Walker series, I haven't read that one.

    JenM: I hope you like TNC. It really was good. Nothing below a C+? Awesome!!! I didn't know Katie MacAlister did regency (and a farce? YES!!) - I'm going to have to check that out - I love her dragons!
