What's In Your TBR Pile?


I have so many books to read!  So many that I fantasize about a book-reading vacation.  I can just picture it.  Me in a hammock somewhere warm and tropical, a nice fruity drink by my side, and books.  Piles of books.  And my Kindle, of course.

Where would I start?  There's tons of romance novels waiting on my Kindle, so that might be a good place.  Right now I'm reading a book by a dear friend, Lia Riley, who has her second new adult novel coming out.  It's called Sideswiped, and although I'm not usually a big fan of new adult, I'm a huge fan of her writing, so I love it.  I'm almost done, and next in the queue are Liz Talley's The Sweetest September and Kathleen O'Brien's Betting on the Cowboy.  They both look so good that I'm not sure how I'm going to choose which to read first.  Close my eyes and point maybe?

And if I keep scrolling along the screen, I find so many other treasures.  Donna Alward's The House on Blackberry Hill.  Sarah M. Anderson's Rodeo Dreams.  Books by Jeannie Watt, Kristan Higgins, Holly Jacobs, Maggie McGinnis... the list of amazing authors and their books goes on and on.  And that's just the romance!  I'm in a bookclub where we're reading literary fiction, like The Orchardist and non-fiction, like Sin in the Second City.  And my father-in-law has been re-reading all of John Steinbeck's novels, since we live in "Steinbeck Country," and he's gotten me all fired up to do the same.

Can you see how much I need my reading vacation?  Anyone want to come with me?  And if you did, what books would you bring along?

I don't so much have a TBR pile as a TBR mountain range. I've got Molly O'Keefe's newest 3 books (I'm behind), a bunch of Meredith Duran to catch up on, some Loretta Chase....

And then I have a couple books on the history of India, Capital in the 21st Century, Hilary Mantel, and who knows what else.

I need a year off of work.

I have a mini mountain in my room of print and an overfilled Kindle by my side, lol! I jump back and forth to different romance genres... trying new to me authors... others that I love... been reading a bunch of different Harlequins lately... some e-books in paranormal and historical... need more time in the day to read!

So many choices!

I'd bring the Blood Brothers trilogy by Nora Roberts because I love re-reading them! And I have a backlog of new books on my Kindle - some Maisey Yates, a few by Liz Talley and a Ruthie Knox series. Oh, and I'm still working my way through Steven Tyler's autobiography and an account of Louis Zamperini's survival in the Pacific.

I have just discovered the works of Bernard Cornwell. I'm set for quite a while.

Thanks for letting me know what you're reading. Though now I'm in trouble because a lot of the books you described reminded me of more I'm interested in. The pile grows! Need that vacation soon!
