It's Monday, What Are You Reading? (Nov. 1, 2010)

It's Monday, What are you reading is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.

This week I finished:
Reno's Chance by Lora Leigh - This was on my Kindle which I had with me at KidLit Con last weekend. It is a novella that was originally published in an anthology I don't have. It was a pretty good, erotic romance.

Nightshade by Andrea Cremer - This is a debut paranormal novel for young adults. I enjoyed the author's take on werewolves and I enjoyed the story. My review is here.
After reading Reno's Chance, I went to look on my Kindle for another novella length paranormal to pair with it for review and chose Wolf Tracks by Vivian Arend. This is the fourth in the Granite Lake Wolves series and was a good paranormal romance. I reviewed both here.

A friend lent me a copy of Minder by Kate Kaynak. After reading her glowing review, I decided to move it up the TBR stack. I am glad I did. This was a thoroughly enjoyable young adult paranormal. After finishing it, I immediately added the sequel to my Kindle. My review will be posted on Thursday.

I am currently reading Maybe This Time by Jennifer Crusie. I like her novels. She has a way with crisp, amusing dialog that I really enjoy.

Next week? Well, here is a picture of the most recent (since the school year began) version of my TBR stack. And I am expecting a large number of new releases to arrive on Tuesday. I know two books by Nora Roberts are coming. They will immediately rise to the top of the TBR stack.
TBR arrivals since 9/1/2010
That ought to keep me sufficiently busy for quite a while. What did you read and what's coming up next for you?

  5. Enjoy your books! That's a big TBR stack; when mine gets that big I get rid of books; figure that if I've had it that long and haven't read it, I'm not likely to.

  8. I've been wanting to read Maybe This Time...haven't read a Crusie novel in awhile, so I'm overdue. You're right about her crisp, amusing writing.

    Hope you enjoy your books...
