October Book of the Month:

I thought I'd start including a book of the month in my recap posts and although I read some great books in October it was easy to pick my favorite - Alpha by Rachel Vincent.  I'm still sad that the Shifters series is finished but oh what a series it was, I'm definitely planning a re-read soon!  If you like adult UF and haven't read this series yet - go out any buy it now!
