Using I choose a number to signal a letter. Just to keep it interesting, I ended up with "y" being the letter chosen for this month:
  1. Yoga for emotional trauma
  2. You Know Who I Am
  3. Your voice is all I hear
Last month I only had 12 books in the category "C" and I finished a few of them. I'm thinking since "Y" only has three that I will add the unfinished "c" into this month and just knock them off the list.  Including:
  1. Children of Hoarders (non Fiction)
  2. Christmas Brides
  3. Caged Warrior
  4. Coming Back Together (non fiction)
  5. Cowboy Behind the Badge
  6. Cowboy in my pocket
  7. Cracks in the Armour
  8. Coveted
For the Challenges I signed up for at the beginning of the year I need to complete these to stay on track:
I still also need to pick two book for my Erotica Reading Challenge.  I've neglected this so far this year. I want to get back to this my first love of the romance genres.  

What I'm Currently Watching:

This came out last month and I have been watching every chance I get. I'm a huge Supernatural Fan, so I'm so excited when I saw this.  The ending is perfect for every little fangirl.  I can't wait until the next season starts, hopefully it will be worth the wait.

I've also been watching Sons of Anarchy slowly but surely because that shows has a bit of violence, and my heart broke recently when a favorite of mine was killed so I slowed up even more on watching it.  I already know two more faves are going to die so I'm not looking forward to that at all.

I also started and finished in one night Sense8 (and I freaking loved it!!!) I can't say enough good things about this show, I just didn't want the series to end. I have so many questions, and I can't wait until the second season gets done. Hopefully soon. If you haven't watched it, it's a Netflix original and man are they doing some big things.

I also finished East Los High which only just came back but I have a Hulu plus subscription (can you tell I don't have cable??) and I watched all 12 episodes in 1 day (it was my day off and I had nothing to do and nowhere to go so I spent it with my favorite Latinos I absolutely love this show so much) I couldn't believe the show was done and that I had so many more questions to ask. *Sob* it's going to a be a whole other year before they come back. *sob*
