Favorite book of the month: Doc, absolutely! This fictionalized biography of one of the legends of the Wild West is wonderfully written and captivating.

Least favorite book of the month: Something Wicked This Way Comes…the overblown writing style was way too obnoxious for me!

  2. Jessica Park, Left Drowning
  3. Kristan Higgins, The Perfect Match


  1. Loretta Chase, Knaves’ Wager ($2.99)

I’m very proud of the self-control I exhibited in my book buying this month! 🙂 Although that probably had more to do with external factors such as that pesky government shutdown….
