After reading quite a bit of fantasy and science fiction lately, the girls and I are ready to dive back into the land of hook ups & heartbreaks, happily ever afters, and happily never fucking again . . . well the last part might be something I'm looking for, but you get the idea. All month long, we've decided to read both romance & contemporary novels in Lieu of Valentines day, the day for all things cheesy. But what fun what it be if we didn't have other bloggers join us? That's where you all come in . . . 

Now before you start sweating bullets, there are NO RULES to this event! It's really about dusting off those lovey-dovey books that have been collecting dust on your shelves. But even better, it's about celebrating the holiday with some blogger friends here in the community, and how do we turn up? By reading! 

All that we ask is that you read atleast ONE romance or contemporary for the month if you're participating.Would it be cool if you read more than one? Of course, but we know you guys have other obligations, so how many you read & what you read, is completely up to you!
