I forgot to do this last month. But since the LRC polls closed yesterday, I decided to go ahead and post mine today. Apparently last year I did this in January, after the P&E poll.
The publisher I bought from the most? Three way tie between TEB, EC, and Siren/BookStrand.
Most Frequent Author? Tie between Ashley Ladd and Regina Carlysle
New Author? Regina Carlysle
Now to the actual books. I couldn't just pick a top 5, so I went back and picked the most memorable for each month. How did I choose? I looked at the beginning of the week or month where I posted the books and if I could still recall the storyline, I picked the one that jumped out as the most memorable. And in some instances, choosing just one was impossible.
Jan: Brit Party antho by Brynn Paulin, et al. And Twilight by Stephanie Meyers
Feb: Tie: A Psychic Hitch by Bekki Lynn and The Best New Toy of the Season by Elaine Cantrell.
Mar: This month was tough. I read books by Jodi Picoult and Michael Palmer, plus more of the Twilight saga. As far as the e-books went...tie between To Hate and To Hold by Dakota Rebel, Jake's Return by Liana Laverentz., and Soul Stone by Elyssa Edwards
Apr: Thin Ice by Liana Laverentz, American Beauty by Ashley Ladd, and Flavia's Secret by Lindsay Townsend.
May: E-Book: Stone and Sea by Cindy Spencer Pape and Killer Curves by Regina Carlysle. Print: Marriage Proposal by Kelly Kirch and Wind Dancer by Jamie Carie
June: Memories I Choose To Keep by Kazuko Sato and Drake's Rules by Barb Huffert
July: To Love A Hero by Mona Risk

Sept: Last Man On Earth by Ashley Ladd
Oct: Second Sight Dating by Marianne Stephens
Nov: First and Ten by Fran Lee
Dec: The rest of the Carnal Reunions series.
So what's your opinion? Agree with me or am I showing favoritism? And if you've not read any of these books, please put them on your TBB list. IMHO, you're missing out.
