Hello everyone, I hope you all had a fabulous November! This month for me really consisted of a mixed bunch of books, I think I'm still on the lookout for something to totally wow me, hopefully I'll discover something over the Christmas break. Without further ado here's our recap of November, and remember to help us decide which book we should read this month from our tbr piles by voting in the poll at the end of this post.
Number of Books read:
Jasprit: 4 stars
Rachel: 5 stars
Jasprit: 3 stars
Jasprit: Lila Shortcuts by Sarah Alderson
While You're Away by Jessa Holbrook
The F-it List by Julie Halpern
World After by Susan Ee

The Chocolate Touch (Amour et Chocolat #4) by Laura Florand
The Chocolate Heart (Amour et Chocolat #5) by Laura Florand
Full Blooded (Jessica McClain #1) by Amanda Carlson
Best read of last month:
Jasprit: I don't think I could choose between Roomies by Sara Zarr & Tara Altebrando or Ink is Thicker than Water by Amy Spalding.
Rachel: The Chocolate Touch (Amour et Chocolat #4) by Laura Florand. I’m enamored with this series if you couldn’t tell by now! This was such an amazingly sensual and emotional read for me! Plus, the setting of Paris and all the chocolate made it a to-die-for read!
Book which surprised me the most:
Jasprit: Roomies by Sara Zarr & Tara Altebrando. I went into this book not knowing a single thing about it and the way my reading mood has been lately, it couldn't have come at a better time. I read it in like two days (which is the quickest I've read a book in a long time!). The authors did a great job at exploring the wonderful story between our two great MC's, but also focusing on their individual lives. Also there were two great fictional crushes too!
Rachel: I haven’t reviewed it yet, but I finished I Hunt Killers (it was the readers pick for me on our last monthly recap) and it was disturbing! I didn’t expect it to be quite so brutal with it being a YA read but, wow. I did enjoy it when I wasn’t completely horrified.
Fictional crush of the month:
Jasprit: Either Oliver from Ink is Thicker than Water by Amy Spalding or Mark from Roomies by Sara Zarr & Tara Altebrando. Both guys were so considerate and at times so misunderstood. Sometimes I wouldn't have minded stepping in and giving them both a hug!
Rachel: Dominique Richard from The Chocolate Touch! Last month I picked a moody, broody male and this month I picked another one. I see a trend here… Dominique was delicious! *sigh*
Three books I'm most looking forward to this month:
Jasprit: Twinmaker by Sean Williams. The reviews haven't been that great for this book so far, but I think that the world created by Sean sounds absolutely amazing!
Heartbeat by Elizabeth Scott. Can you believe that it's been over two and half years since I last read a book by Elizabeth Scott and that I've only read two books by her? Heartbeats looks and sounds amazing! Also I have a 4.25 average from my Goodreads friends that have already read this.
Sloppy Firsts by Megan McCafferty. I think it's about high time that I started this series..
Rachel: Rumor Has It by Jill Shalvis: Love the sound of a down home romance with quirky secondary characters.
Sempre by J.M. Darhower: I’m nervous to read this because the subject material sounds dark, but I’ve heard nothing but good things.
Kiss (Amour et Chocolat #2) by Laura Florand: I simply LOVE this series!
And now to the fun bit where we want you guys to take part. Rachel and I have enormous tbr piles, so we've decided that each month we will let you decide what we need to read asap. Last month you picked Cinder by Marissa Meyer for me and I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga for Rachel. My final rating for Cinder was 3 stars and I hope to have my review up soon. Whereas Rachel really enjoyed I hunt Killers. We can't wait to see what you guys pick for us, the poll will be open until the 5th!
