Thursday 13 - #2!



I'm a bookie, have been for years and figure I always will be. As such, there are piles of books waiting for me to read, to add into my database [I have a bad repuation for buying the same book over and over again, and always hope this will help - unfortunately it also allows the cutie to see a total number of books stashed throughout the house], to be stacked in the appropriate cases up in the attic for keeping or donating. Over the holidays and through the new year I judged two different contests [romance and young adult books] so haven't read much for myself. Now it's me time and I've started reading the ebook "Mi Lady's School for Girls" by Lady Midnight, but my TBR pile is still stacked high. Here are thirteen of the traditional books in my TBR pile...the ebook pile doesn't haunt me as much because I don't have to dust it.

1. Victorious Star by Morgan Hawke - read them each separately as ebooks and loved the series, but now want to read them together, straight through. If I remember correctly, they were intense.

2. Something Sinful by Suzanne Enoch - enjoy her historicals, a good fix.

3. Wolf at the Door by Christine Warren - her ebook series "Fixed" were fantastic, hope these have the same edge.

4. Kushiel's Scion by Jacqueline Carey - the first Kushiel trilogy was so fresh and full of lush details, I was compelled to step back into this world again.

5. Dark Celebrations by Christine Feehan - love the Carpathians.

6. Ricochet by Sandra Brown

7. Innocent in Death by JD Robb - Roarke and Eve are a favorite couple of mine. I usually devour these two when I first get them so it's odd to see this one waiting to be picked up...must be the mental place I'm in right now.

8. Shadow Dance by Julie Garwood

9. Taste of Innocence by Stephanie Laurens

10. For a Few Demons More by Kim Harrison - I'm always laughing during these books.

11. Chosen Prey by Cheyenne McCray

12. Just for Kicks by Susan Andersen

13. Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by JK Rowling - if you tell me there is going to be a finite number of books in a series, I'll wait until the last one has been officially submitted to an editor before starting with book 1.

I still have the last Kushiel book from the first trilogy to read.

I read Warren's She's No Faerie Princess (same series, I believe), but it wasn't anything special for me.

Angela/SciFiChick said...

I've only read the Harry Potter books from your list!

Coco said...

Hahah, I can so relate! I also have a pile of books waiting to be read, and tend to buy same books at least twice :P
I've read Harry Potter, though...

Thanks for visiting my TT :)

Tilly Greene said...

May - I think that's what has me dithering over it.

Angela - you must have enjoyed them because you've read them all :-)

Selena Kitt said...

You have more patience than I do... I've read all the HP books :)

I'm pretty good on the e-book front. Those get read as soon as buy them. The paperbacks, on the other hand, kind of sit around looking pitiful, and wait for me to take a break from the computer. :)

Bianca D'Arc said...

Oh, I'm wondering about the Christine Warren books too. I LOVED her "Fixed" series with EC. Just haven't had time to read the new stuff. My TBR pile is probably as high as yours! LOL

Annie said...

That's some restraint having not read any of the HP books yet. Hope you enjoy them when you get to reading them!

Happy TT!

Shelli Stevens said...

Oh my TBR list is massive. *Groan*

Kimo & Sabi said...

Hmmm...we mostly read books about cats.

Emma Sinclair said...

I've started shelving my TBR books with the already read books. It's much less stress that way, I find, lol.

Amelia Elias said...

I'd need a Thursday 300 to go through my TBR pile... since I don't watch television, reading's what I do for fun and relaxation!

Karen said...

I loved the Victorious Star books - need to read them again.

R.G. ALEXANDER said...

I LOVED the Fixed series!!! {read some of them twice lol} And Feehan and Hawke-man you're making me want to read them again! lol I miss reading. *sigh*

Sparky Duck said...

Elle Fredrix said...

Hmm, I've read about half of these. I haven't read a lot of SEP but I loved Just for Kicks!

Daisy Dexter Dobbs said...

I loved the part about buying the same books over and over again. LOL I've been doing the same thing for years. Great list!

Karen Erickson said...

Great list! My TBR is out of control and I just added three more to it yesterday. Sigh...

:)

Tink said...

I don't know a lot of those, so I'll have to check them out. #13: you are right, but I already read the books that are out. Waiting for the new one sucks! :-)
Thanks for visiting my cars TT.

Tempest Knight said...

Oh, I love Kim Harrison's book too!

Rhonda Stapleton said...

Oh man, your TBR pile looks great. I LOVE Stephanie Laurens...

I don't do much reading other than what I write. Not enough hours in the day. I have read the 1st four Harry Potter books, but the year to year wait wore me out trying to remember details and I decided to wait until the series is finished.
