Being M.I.A...

So this is the first blog post I've made this month out the very few I've made in recent months. I've been totally MIA and haven't been able to write a review for the longest while. That hasn't stopped me from reading though if you caught the increase in my Goodreads 2013 challenge. 

So many great books this year and with the year almost over, I still don't think I've really cracked the surface of the most anticipated releases of the year. I've discovered new authors and many new book boyfriends ;)

So since I haven't been able to write much in the ways of reviews and I'm talking many drafts waiting to be completed, here's a list of some of the books that I really loved reading this year thus far...

Hot Ticket (Sinners, #3) by Olivia Cunning

One week Girlfriend (Drew & Fable, #1) by Monica Murphy

My review for this book can be found here

Second Chance Boyfriend (Drew & Fable, #2) by Monica Murphy

Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire 

My review for this one is still pending and coming. I just love looking at the cover. Reading Travis' pov made me tear up.

Leo (Sign of Love, #1) by Mia Sheridan

Real (Real, #1) by Katy Evans

One of my fav new books boyfriends- Remy. My review for this book can be found here

Lover at Last (The Black Dagger Brotherhood, #11) by J.R. Ward

I had waited patiently for Qhuinn and Blay's story and it was awesome. My review can be found here

Real Ugly (Hard Rock Roots, #1) by C.M. Stunich
A real favorite of all the books I read this year. Raw and gritty and just as the name says; Real Ugly. My review here

Dangerous to Know and Love by Jane Harvey-Berrick

I truly really enjoyed this book. A best of the year for me. And I'm looking forward to more from this author.

If Only (Captured, #1) by Louise J

Joe and Callie's story spanned years before they finally really found what they had in each other. My review here

Entwined with you (Crossfire, #3) by Sylvia Day

Gideon Cross. Need I say more? Review still pending because it needs time to get the right words ;)

Thief (Love Me With Lies, #3) by Tarryn Fisher

The final chapter in the messy lives of Caleb, Olivia and Leah. I cried and got pissed and loved it all at the same time. This review is still in my draft waiting to be finished but in the mean time you can read my reviews of The Opportunist (book 1) from Olivia's pov and Dirty Red (book 2) from Leah's pov.

Bad Things (Tristan & Danika, #1) by R.K. Lilley

Collide (Collide, #1) by Gail McHugh

Special mention to the coincidence of Callie & Kayden and the Redemption of Callie & Kayden by Jessica Sorenson which I absolutely couldn't get enough of.
