Okay, so it's not exactly as scary as the Temple of Doom, but if my To Be Read pile gets a whole lot higher, it's going to do some serious damage if and when it finally topples and crushes me.
I was thinking today (longingly) about what I'm going to do with my days once I'm off deadline and actually have free time again. I don't really remember what that's like right now (as I plug away at my computer at roughly 1 a.m.), but I'm sure I'll adjust. Anyway, one of the things I really want to do is tackle my towering pile of books and actually enjoy a story instead of trying to drag one, kicking and screaming, out my head to wrestle onto paper. I'm fairly fried on blogging ideas right now, for obvious reasons, but I did work up a little list of some of the books I plan on curling up with in fairly short order. Here are a few:
1. Goddess of the Rose, by P.C. Cast
2. Jewel of Atlantis by Gena Showalter (I've read the rest of the series, but not the first book!)
3. Nora Roberts' new trilogy (I think the first one is The Hollow)
4. Gena Showalter's new trilogy (Darkest Pleasures and all that)
5. Jacquelyn Frank's Nightwalker books (I read half of Jacob, loved it, and then life happened, my mom stole it, and now I need to start again)
6. All the JD Robb books I've missed in the last year and a half
7. All of the other Casablanca books, of course!! Which is becoming quite a list!
So those are just a few of my reads. My Sis-In-Law keeps telling me I need to read Amanda Quick, so I'll probably try her. And if set loose at the bookstore, I will just get random and do serious damage to my wallet! So what about all of you? What's on your TBR list right now? And if you've read anything on mine, how was it? Also, I would LOVE some recommendations on really good historicals anyone has read recently, because I've been really in the mood for a yummy Regency or a steamy Victorian, or even a medieval. Help me with my end of summer reads, everyone!
P.S. Apologies if my cat's blogging is more interesting than mine these days. I asked if he would do it for me again this week, but all he did was yak up a hairball, which I took as a resounding "no."
