No, it’s not a Mission:Impossible code, but often getting through your TBR (To-be-read) pile can seem pretty daunting, if not impossible. Moreover, it’s frustrating because the saying, “so many books, so little time,” definitely applies to my towering TBR and my lack (or slack) for plowing through them.
I’m pleased to share a few of my favorites I’m currently reading or getting ready to read. The first three were sent by publishers, the last I purchased.
The Wolf Gift by Anne Rice
Just when you think werewolves are passé, the goddess of dark paranormal re-emerges with this tale of a young man gone canine. Fifty pages in and I’m bitten, fo’ sho.
The Thirteen by Susie Maloney
The Stepford Wives gone occult-y or better yet, Desperate Housewives if they were a coven of witches looking for than unlucky number 13 to add to their pack makes this a book I plan to cast a spell on me this weekend!
Moonwalking with Einstein by Joshua Foer
I like to always have at least one non-fic book going and this month it’s this New York Times bestseller about The Art and Science of Remembering Everything. As someone with squirrels in my brain and too many years of slurping evil diet sodas, I can use all the help I can get.
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
This YA is definitely worth the ten bucks it costs for the Kindle. Mara has survived an accident that killed her boyfriend and two friends. They move away and she’s seeing their ghosts and slowly remembering what happened that fateful night. Great, great storytelling here.
