Book of the Month – The Taming of the Rake by Kasey Michaels
A historical romance that cleverly references Shakespeare. It’s full of humor (via Beau’s brother, Puck), romance, danger, and some well-written sex scenes. This one’s definitely not for the kids, but it’s not all obscene sex either. There are laughs to be had. It’s just an all-around good romance. It’s also the first in a trilogy about the Blackthorn brothers, which means we’ll see more of these characters in the future!

Author of the Month
Okay, so this month has been crazy. Forgive me, but I’m skipping this one this month. It’s cool though. I’m changing the way I’m doing this anyway. I’ll be choosing my author of the month ahead of time now so that I can get through as many of their books as possible during the month. August is going to be Stephanie Perkins! Yay!

Lovely Covers

Not many beautiful covers this month. Sad. And surprising since I’m such a cover whore.

What I loved best about July…
A new blog! I’m still really excited about starting this blog. It really helped me get organized. I like having these reviews separate from my audio books, especially since I listen to so many! It was a little complicated at first, but I think I’ve got the hang of things now.
