Book Dump: 5/9/2017

More from my unmanageable stack of books!  Here’s some of the books that are on my To Be Read (TBR) pile:

  • When Beauty Tamed the Beast – Eloisa James.  I’m a sucker for a couple things in my choice of books: Snappy book titles and plays on fairy tales.  And yes, sometimes if there’s a bodice ripping or some smut involved, I’m even more enamored.
  • This one is a classic mystery – The House at Satan’s Elbow – first published in 1965 by John Dickson Carr.  I chose this one to be a TBR for a few reasons … first off, the cover.  I love the classic minimalism of books from the 60s and 70s.  Secondly – the title.  Zing!  Third – a classic mystery.  To be a successful writer, one must study the craft.
  • Where the Dead Lie by C.S. Harris – Again, a plethora of things going for this one … a snappy title and be still my heart!  This is book #12 in a series.  Twelve is a nice, bingeworthy number of books.
  • Nick Cave.  I just talked about Mr. Cave’s music and tragedy the other day.  And the Ass Saw the Angel is his only novel.  Looking forward to acquiring a copy of this.

What’s on your TBR list?
