My Goings On in September:
- I attended two different book events at Anderson Bookshop! I went to the Rick Yancey signing and to the YA Fandom Frenzy – both awesome events!
- I got a new editing client and have started working on her first two books. Keep an eye out for L.A. Starkey!
- I finally got around to reading Pride and Prejudice and The Giver, and really enjoyed both of them! I didn’t post reviews of these two, but I may post a discussion about them at some point in the future.

September 2014 Reviews:
Another month of less reviews than normal, but I’m trying to let that go a little bit and not demand so much of myself (it’s hard, though – somehow it stresses me out to see less books listed here!!!).

And September’s Best of the Bunch winner is:
Such a hard choice this month! There were a few books that I really loved for different reasons. But I finally decided on Rock Angel because that book just really affected me, and I think about it a lot.
Shan is young, beautiful, talented, and addicted to heroin in Rock Angel, a novel that follows her meteoric rise to guitar goddess stardom in the 90’s. She is discovered in New York by a handsome, arrogant musical genius named Quinn, and sparks fly between them when he hires her as lead guitarist of his band. Although Quinn is accustomed to bedding a different groupie every night, he can’t ignore his deepening feelings for his new band mate. From gritty Greenwich Village clubs to L.A.’s Troubadour; gigging and touring the country to the cover of Rolling Stone, Rock Angel is infused with the passionate music and intense sexual chemistry of Shan and Quinn. Shan must work out her personal demons and learn to trust Quinn enough to love him, but still remain true to the music that has always been her salvation. A hot, hard-driving story set in an intoxicating world of sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll, Rock Angel is the first novel by author, Jeanne Bogino.
