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?

Have an unmanageable stack of books to eventually read?  So do I!  But that’s OK – we’re in this together.  Here’s some of the books that are on my To Be Read (TBR) pile:

  • Apparently I need some Christina Henry in my life.  The book pictured above Lost Boy, comes out in July 2017.
  • Sandra Block … apparently I need to discover this author as well. Here’s a case where I was drawn in by the strength of cover design alone.
  • Blackout: Remembering the Things I Drank to Forget. Block’s books may have the cover, but the title of Sarah Hepola’s memoir is witty, poignant, and utterly compelling.
  • Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng.  This pick was added due to the millions of good things I’ve heard about Ng and another engaging title.

I read a lot.  I spend a lot of time (probably too much time) on social media.  And I’m always coming across INCREDIBLE looking books.  Oftentimes, I either snap screenshots or physical photos on my phone so I can eventually add them to my ever expanding To Be Read (TBR) list.  Here’s my book dump for April 4, 2017:
