{Top Spot} September Top Spot Picks

What was your favorite read this month? What was your Top Spot?

Top Spot is a new monthly blog meme hosted by the Skype Sisters. Every month we will get together to share our favorite read from that month and we would love for you join us! This meme will take place over the last weekend of every month, giving us all a chance to gush over the great reads we've encountered and bring an awesome ending to the current month. The Top Spot book can be anything you've read, whether it's old or new, an ARC or a finished copy. All August reads counts!

I have two top spots this month for YA and Adult because I enjoyed this books and cant wait for more work from these amazing authors. 

Voodoo Dues (Lian and Figg #1)
By Stepahnie Simmons
Blurb: From the beginning of Figg’s employment, there is something not quite right about the bar. There are few customers, a parade of neighborhood psychics and pentacle adorned visitors, all coming to hold court with her enigmatic boss. Figg is not sure what is going on, but she is determined to find out! 

When the local voodoo queen shows up, and the next morning her grandson ends up dead outside the bar things get interesting.

Figg pesters Lian into telling her the truth about his former life, and is thrust into a world where the things that go bump in the night are real. There’s a murder to solve, zombies to lay to rest and a villain that neither of them saw coming.

{This was my favorite adult series because I loved the characters, this is the first book of the series and a first for Simmons. She did a fantastic job a mixing, humor, zombies, voodoo and a touch of romance that was unique and very original. I absolutely look forward to more adventures with Figg and her boss Lian.}

Anna and the French Kiss

Anna and the French Kiss
By Stephanie Perkins
Blurb: Anna is looking forward to her senior year in Atlanta, where she has a great job, a loyal best friend, and a crush on the verge of becoming more. Which is why she is less than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris - until she meets Etienne St. Clair: perfect, Parisian (and English and American, which makes for a swoon-worthy accent), and utterly irresistible. The only problem is that he's taken, and Anna might be, too, if anything comes of her almost-relationship back home.

As winter melts into spring, will a year of romantic near - misses end with the French kiss Anna - and readers - have long awaited?

{ Yet another Stephanie who captivated me with her wondering young adult story. I haven't read a novel in a long time that didn't have paranormal elements and this one made me so excited to get back to reading more fiction based books. I loved every character, St. Clair was such a swoon worthy guy and Anna was the kind of girl I'd be friends with in a minute. I look forward to Perkins next book Lola and the Boy next Door.}

  1. I like this meme. How do I join up. dont see the linky to sign up. Great meme idea ladies.

  2. Voodoo Dues seem like a great read, although I haven't heard anything about it before this actually! I'm glad it was! Anna and the French Kiss are a book I've heard tons about though and that I'm super curious about! I don't think I've heard a single bad thing about it actually. Great choices. :)

    My Top Spot!

  3. I just added Voodoo Dues to my TBR list, because it sounds really good. I've heard a lot of people loved Anna and the French Kiss, but I just can't seem to want to read it. Watch, I'll finally read it someday and love it.

  4. YAY for Anna and the French Kiss!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
