Right now I’m reading Alanna: The First Adventure in the Songs of the Lioness series by Tamora Pierce. I first read Trickster’s Choice by Tamora Pierce a few months back, being intrigued by the snazzy cover, but after reading Trickster’s Choice and then Trickster’s Queen and realizing they were definitely not the first books in Pierce’s series, I decided I’d better go back and read at least some of the others. This book is much smaller, but the writing is equally good and so far I’m enjoying it a great deal, despite being oh so tired at night every time I sit down to read – so I’m not making much progress in spite of myself.
Next up on my list is Deja Dead by Kathy Reichs, whose books were the inspiration behind the tv series Bones on Fox, which you may or may not know I’m obsessed with – almost as obsessed as I am with Grey’s Anatomy. Almost. Okay, let’s face it, I just live to be obsessed with things – from the days of Buffy, Dawsons Creek and Gilmore Girls (and the Backstreet Boys) to today with Grey’s, Bones and John Mayer.
After that I’ll either get on to Family Tree by Barbara Delinsky which looks wonderful or else get onto reading Pride and Prejudice for the Classics Bookclub on 5 Minutes for Books – which I’ll need to read by September 2 or else risk disappointing myself utterly and entirely.
I also REALLY want to read Rumors by Anna Godberson, the follow up book to The Luxe which was just as luxurious to read as it was enticing, thrilling, and fabulous. That book just had me dying to wear some fabulous evening gown and dance the night away with a forbidden lover, who would turn out to be my husband because, well, at the end of the day, he’s the only one I want to dance the night away with, but in a fabulous evening gown, wouldn’t it still be dreamy and wonderful?
Don’t you want to curl up with a good book now? What’s on YOUR nightstand? You can tell me in comments, post about it on your own blog and of course, link up to 5 Minutes for Books and check out what other people are reading, too!
