TBR Everywhere You Look

It's no secret that writers are also voracious readers. Our To-Be-Read piles are legend. Tell me, was I the only one so naive as to think that getting an ereader, and an app to read books on my BlackBerry, would eliminate the piles of books which multiply like rabbits all over my house?

You have got to be kidding me. Not only do I have an overflowing TBR pile, I now have a very large TBR file. The whole renovation thing is taking up most of my spare time, and working on a manuscript I'm behind on, is taking up the rest of the time, so there isn't any time left over to read. That's really okay for now. But the aforementioned problem still exists. Ten-fold!

Here's a short list of what's in my TBR's. These are the ones I can see at a glance.


Original Sin by Allison Brennan
Lover Mine by J.R. Ward
Atlantis Redeemed by Alyssa Day
Hot Westmoreland Nights by Brenda Jackson
What a Scoundrel Wants by Carrie Lofty
The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Ms. Percy Parker by Leanna Renee Hieber
Serpent Moon by C.T. Adams & Cathy Clamp


A Bitch Named Karma by Stephanie Haefner
The Devil's Punchbowl by Greg Iles
Jack Daniels Stories by J.A. Konrath
AfterGlow by Pamela Vee
Under The Dome by Stephen King
A Darker Trinity by Candace Gilmer
Bright Star by Greyson Reyes-Cole

Yep, my tastes are eclectic. I'm one of those weirdos who reads the back of cereal boxes too.

What's in your pile?


  1. I haven't read any of those, but my sister read Under the Dome and she didn't like it. I hope you get through your pile!

  2. Yes - I've still got piles of books, now I've got a bunch of them piled into my Reader that I need to read; scads of them in my "bookbag" online at the library, and a bunch on my wishlist with Fictionwise, not to mention a file in my email with book excerpts from, and special notes on my spreadsheet where I keep track of book reviews I edit and note the ones I'd like to read. LOL. I think now more than ever we've got a gargantuan selection.

    I want to read Under the Dome also. Was waiting for the ebook because NO way am I packing around that tome in treebook!

    Our lives are way too busy when we don't have time to read. *sigh*
