September and October Wrap-Up

As most of you  know, I forgot to do the wrap-up post for September. So like the good procrastinator that I am, I put it off and lumped it with Octobers.  So here it s, though it looks like I read a whole lot -it's two month's worth. And in my opinion, I didn't read enough.

What's coming up?
This week I am doing an "All Things MMA" here on the blog.  There will be MMA stories and video clips. But best of all, there will be a giveaway at the end for Eric Devine's Tap Out, which is think is super grimy and I love love love love that book. He will even be stopping by the blog for an interview.  After that, I will be focusing on review books that I have that are part of a series. I will be trying to finish these up before the new year: Kevin Hearne's Iron Druid Chronicles, Karen E. Taylor's Vampire Legacy, Jennifer Estep's Frost Academy and Laura Ann Gilman's Paranormal Scene Investigations.  After that, we'll see what happens.  Wish me luck and if you can spread the word about the "All Things MMA" week!

Always Shine,
Starr K
