I think Cindy has the right idea!!! My TBR pile is scary. Real scary. It’s scaring me and I’ve never been scared of books before. I know that some readers like
Mine ‘til Midnight by Lisa Kleypas: I’ve had this one since
The Serpent Prince by Elizabeth Hoyt: Since I gushed at the author and I loved the first two in this series, this is a have-to-read book.
The Calling By Jennifer Ashley: This is the first of a series I was quite excited about. I loved her pirate books and was delighted when I found a copy in
Knight on a Texan Plain by Linda Broday: I’d never heard of this author until I started visiting Petticoats & Pistols and I saw she was one of the contributors. Me, being me, promptly ordered three from her back list without ever trying one. Since it’s a Western and I love a good Western, I thought I’d better read at least one before I buy her entire backlist.
Warrior’s Touch by Michelle Willingham: I wanted to have options to cover all moods. This is a medieval, a genre I love but haven’t read enough of lately
OK, OK – I know I said five, but there isn’t a Romantic Suspense in the bunch so I have to have them all covered. I could take out one of the historicals – but I don’t want to so I’ll make it six.
Phoenix Unrisen by Kathleen Nance: I have an ARC of this one. I loved her last book Jigsaw and it’s been quite some time since she’s had a new book out so I’ll add this one to the group.
So there you have it. I have a nice mixture. Some authors I've read and loved before (Lisa Kleypas, Elizabeth Hoyt, Kathleen Nance, Jennifer Ashley) and a couple of new to me authors (Michelle Willingham, Linday Broday). I have one from a nice variety of genres, all of them I like. I think I did good. Breaking the TBR pile down to six doesn’t sound nearly so scary. And that’s it. No new books until I read these ones. This I need to do.
So - Any suggestions as to the order?
