Werewolves to RFK. Seriously?

Is your TBR pile exploding? Mine is. I keep buying books but can’t find the time to make a dent. I’m in the middle of an engrossing YA series by Cassandra Clare called The Mortal Instruments, currently on book three, City of Glass.

I get frustrated when I can’t curl up with my Kindle Fire (okay, that doesn’t have the same ring as curling up with a book, but you get the idea). This is a six book series with five currently in print, the sixth scheduled for release in September of 2014.

There’s also a steampunk prequel, The Infernal Devices. A trilogy, two of the three novels are available now, with Clockwork Princess coming in March 2013. Check out the awesome cover for Clockwork Prince (book 2). Moody, beautiful and artistically envisioned, it’s what orginially reeled me in to take a look at the series.

Instruments and Devices aside, I’m addicted to one-clicking on Amazon. Wow, is that thing handy! Click, buy, click, buy. Two more this week. It made me slow down and take a look at what’s been accumulating in the pile:

Romance Titles:
Betting the Moon by Beverly Rae
Yes, there is werewolf! A sexy one too. 🙂
Lord Midnight by Donna Cummings
Heart of the Hunter by Linda Anne Wulf
Summer’s Song by Allie Boniface
Rendezvous at Midnight by Lynne Connelly

Mysteries/Thrillers:
The Jackal Man by Kate Ellis
I love her Wesley Peterson series, currently at fifteen books. I’ve read nine so far and intend to finish with those I’ve missed.
Eyes of Prey by John Sanford
There are twenty-two Prey books. I’ve read seven. Sanford has a crisp no-frills way of writing I like. Surprising, given I normally go for descriptive prose.
Silent Kills by C.E. Lawrence
Book three of a trilogy

Other Titles:
The Aristotelian by Steve Poling
Young Sherlock Holmes. Mycroft is the protagonist.
Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking by Susan Cain
Bobby and Jackie: A Love Story by C. David Heymann
Most times when I read non-fiction, I immediately reach for anything on
Robert F. Kennedy

So, there you have my current TBR pile, from werewolves to RFK. Of course it doesn’t include titles on my wish list, many discovered on Six Sentence Sundays, some still waiting for release.

I know the pile will continue to grow as one can never have too many books!

Remember the Twilight Zone episode Time Enough at Last? Burgess Meredith played a bookworm whose single driving passion was reading. He couldn’t find the time, plagued by obligations to the people around him. Then the world ended, leaving him the sole survivor with a treasure-trove of books. He thought he’d discovered nirvana until he shattered his glasses reaching for the first novel. *shudder* That episode has stayed with me since I was a kid.

Apocalyptic catastrophes aside, what’s lurking in your to-be-read pile?

  1. Between the kids and authorly duties, I don’t think I’ll ever get to the bottom of my TBR pile. I’ve had to settle for buying books (one-click … YES!) to support my favorite authors and seldom actually getting the chance to read them. I guess I can relate to the guy with the broken glasses, LOL.

  2. Books overflow on my nightstand, in the corner of my closet and anywhere else I find a spot! I love the kindle one-click buy feature and use it a LOT on my kindle app and I find it’s way to easy to buy books for my Nook Tablet too! If I had a month to do nothing but read, I still don’t think I’d make a dent!

    • Ahh, but wouldn’t a month to do nothing but read be sheer bliss, Debora? *sigh* I guess we’ll just have to keep mucking through our ever-growing TBR piles. Thanks so much for commenting!

  3. I’m so with you on this! It’s a good thing a lot of my TBR pile is in ebook format because I’d have to rent out storage space to house all of mine! My problem is I get wrapped up in a series that has been out for years already and have to catch up, while another series pops up.

    • I do that too, L.J.! And e-books have been a livesaver. I recently donated boxes upon boxes of books to my local library and a nursing home. My cache was out of control. I finally had to decide “will I ever read it again?” If the answer was no, I donated it ,which made my husband deliriously happen. Extra storage space, LOL! Did I mention HE was the one who bought me a Kindle originally (I’ve since upgraded to the Fire).
