What Deanna Read #89: September 2023

Hello, hello. Life continues to chug along. I'm still dealing with the menopause which is hampering a lot of my life, productivity, and creativity. Nonetheless, I soldier on as best as I can. I've started a blog/website and Facebook Group to support other women like myself who have been caught by surprise with menopause and are totally unprepared for it. It's a safe place for them to visit and talk without judgment. This also means I'll stop blathering about it here. Yay!

Aside from that, how are y'all doing? And here's what I read for the last month.

A few more books read last month. There were some duds in there, so there's that. But generally, a lot of comfort reads and getting through a giant TBR.

I'm still reading a lot of Laylah Roberts. She's a comfort read for me. It's a menopause thing, I think. The men in her books are super protective and caring, and I'm thinking I need that feeling when I read right now. So I glommed a lot of her books.

Anna Hackett kicked off a new contemporary romance series and of course, I was all over that. I love her books and I think Dante Fury is a new favorite book boyfriend. I would not kick him out of bed.

Oh, and I discovered a new-to-me author who has been sitting in my TBR for ages. What took me so long? I've been enjoying her books. Werewolf SWAT members. What's not to like? I thoroughly enjoyed Hungry Like The Wolf and Wolf Trouble. I need to dive back into the series and read more of the books.

That's it from me. What did you read in September?

Stay tuned for what Helen read too. It's coming. I promise, I will get to it... I know I said that last month too, but I'm getting there...

    1. Hey Helen, so glad you had a great reading month. Isn't it wonderful when that happens?

    1. The heroine made me 🙄🙄🙄 so much. It was okay. I didn't love it the way I loved Nero.

  3. Another good month. I might just reach my target of 200 books. October will probably be a slow reading month though, due to real travelling, ryanair permitting
