Be Good to Me: April 2013 Edition

April is here, can you believe it?! Racquel can believe it. On April 2nd, it will officially be 2013 in Racquel's book. Why? She counts years by Julie James's releases and oh god, she's waited 365 days for Love Irresistibly to come out and she only has to wait for one. more. day.

March + blogging + reading = Racquel fail. Major fail, actually. However, Sharon did all the things which is encouraging Racquel to do all the things too. April will hopefully be the month Racquel jumps back on the blogging bandwagon and stops shaming Sharon.
So here all the posts we (as in 99% Sharon) posted during March:  
(Review) Shut Out by Kody Keplinger
(Review) I Only Have Eyes for You by Bella Andre
(Review) Unbreak My Heart by Melissa C. Walker
(Review) Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt

The books we read during March:
Racquel read:  
Seduction & Scandal by Charlotte Featherstone C+
Knight by Kristen Ashley A
Creed by Kristen Ashley C
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare A 
The Fulfillment by LaVyrle Spencer B+ 
What Happens in Scotland by Jennifer McQuiston C+

Racquel's Favorite:
Knight by Kristen Ashley: oh Knight. This is one crazy book which is no surprise since it's written by Kristen Ashley. Like my mini review says, "best sexual tension I've probably EVER read in a book." it was great. I already want to reread it. 
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare: I waited until the release of Clockwork Princess to start this series and I honestly did not know what I was missing. Cassandra Clare is a fab author.

Sharon's Favorite:
Well, the entire month of March was different for me because I set a strange goal at the beginning at the month. I read a few books I already had (either owned or ARCs), but the majority of the month was dedicated to re-reading. I re-read every book because it was already a favorite, and I wanted to experience it over again. And I loved those experiences!

Books we want (or books we're dying to read. If you happen to talk to us while we're in a dramatic mood, which happens rather frequently. However Racquel is sure she's literally dying for Dark Triumph and Love Irresistibly):
