Black Leather and Lace - Book Club Catch Up

I haven't written a post about our book club in awhile.  We've been meeting, just not really discussing the books so much.  Our meetings are more a social gathering than anything else.  So here are some mini-reviews of the books we read the past two months.

In January we read The Dirty Girls Book Club by Savanna Fox.  We thought the title was great and the description sounded interesting.  The concept was good but the book itself was kind of a let down. Everyone was pretty much on the same page with this book.

In Feburary we decided to read two books:

Lumberjack in Love was my pick.  I had read it a few months before and really enjoyed it and thought everyone else would too.  I was wrong, no one else liked the story.  I just thought it was a really cute novella and that Ami and Marcus were great characters.

Lord of Scoundrels was group pick. A few of us had read the book and we were willing to read it again. One of the things I like most about this book is that even though it is part of a series, you don't lose anything by not reading the first two books.  Which is something I like since I'm a bit OCD about reading books in a series.  Anyway, the reason I like this book so much is that the guy is the one who is the "ugly duckling" and he truly is ugly.  I love that she doesn't see that and it baffles him. These are two of my favorite romance characters.

Blind Date with a Book

Last year I put together a book display called Blind Date with a Book.  I found the idea through another librarian's post and thought it was great.  Last year I wrapped 19 books and 15 books were checked out.  We asked that people reviewed the book but unfortunately only two people returned reviews.
Last year's books included:

Went to the 2013 NJLA Adult Services Forum...left with a book list.

Yesterday I attended the NJLA Adult Services Forum (don't worry you don't need to know what it is for this post) and while there attended one panel and spoke on another and walked away with a list of some new books to read.  Since I'm really behind in writing reviews I decided to just share these new books so I at least had a post for today!
