It’s Monday again -They do come around so quickly…

A weekly event hosted by Sheila - Book Journey to discuss your reading week ~ the books you've read and those you plan on reading in the coming week.

Books I completed last week are

Jonah hex – Showcase presents (DC Comic)

Lisa Marie Rice - Protectors 01 - Into the Crossfire

Josh Lanyon - Fair Game

Suzanne Brockmann - Infamous

Nobuhiro Watsuki - Rurouni Kenshin

Whittling the “The Be Read” pile

        

Whittling the TBR is an event hosted by The Romance Reviews every Tuesday, and aims to decrease the TBR pile one book at a time.

The purpose of this event is two-fold:

               1.) to help book lovers tackle their ever-growing TBR pile as part of a community effort.

               2.) to bring not-so-recently published books to light.


Reading is a solitary event, but let's do it together!

Pick out a book (or two) that's been languishing in your TBR pile for six months or more with the intention to read (and finish) it this week.

You may pick a print book, an ebook, or an audio book. The length of the book doesn't matter.

On the last Tuesday of the month, we'll have a Whittling the TBR Brag Day wherein we'll give a mini review of the books we've read or a full review.

Attendance is completely voluntary at all the event days.

Up next on the reading deck

Isaiah's Haven (Legacy, #2)

by N.J. Walters

I loved Broken by Shiloh Walker. Good romantic suspense. I'm very interested in Suzanne Brockmann's Infamous. I've been reading mediocre reviews on Josh Lanyon's Fair Game.

I'm looking forward to the Josh Lanyon, I requested it from Net Galley. I hope it is as good as his Adrien English stuff.

Leontine on 9 August 2010 at 05:52 said...

BROKEN is one of my fave Shiloh Walker books *sigh* and Brockmann's INFAMOUS has been winking at me too. I think this one will be read soon to alternate the genres a bit. These day's I could read M/M for 80% of the time LOL yesterday I had an old fasioned sunday, no pc time, just some solitude and my books. I started to read at 11 AM and went to bed at 11 PM. I read Shiloh Walker's THROUGH THE VEIL and Amy Lane's KEEPING PROMISE ROCK...and finally that title makes perfect sense :)

I'll start this monday with writing some reviews but really just want to read-read-read :D

Your books look so good. I like Broken and that Isaiah one. The guys are cute too. Not that I noticed.

@Lydia

You NEED to pick up a Walker book -she is really the queen of angst...

@FX...

I know I am going to love Broken - I don't expect anything less...

Fair Game is pretty good - nothing of such to moan about...

Brockmann - she is just in class of her own....

@AM..
This Lanyon book is no AE, but readable - it was worth the time I spend with it..

@Leontine..
Welcome to my world (m/m goodness) - I have stacks of other genres - but I read so much m/m it unbelievable sometimes...

What a productive Sunday - I LOVE days like that...

I look forward to your thoughts...

Erotic Horizon on 10 August 2010 at 21:31 said...

@Maree..

I thought it was a good idea to challenge myself to get rid of some of those book - one at a time..

Company helps... or it might be a case of company love misery...

Erotic Horizon on 10 August 2010 at 21:33 said...

@Teddy..

Whittling the review - I so agree with that...

I read and read and read and never review...

Check it out - at least at the end of the month we have to write some things...
