Books I’m Thankful For

It’s Thanksgiving Weekend here in Canada and after the fantastic suppers I’ve had, I have rolled myself to the sofa and am entertaining myself without having to move.  It’s a good thing I hit the library and charged my Kindle on Friday.

I made a dent in my September reading list:

Archangel’s Storm  / Archangel’s Blade – Nalini Singh.   Great stories of Raphael’s men and the women they love. When I grow up, I want to write like Nalini.

Hollywood Scandals #1/Hollywood Secrets #2 – Gemma Halliday.   The first book was fun and the second is shaping up to be just as entertaining.

Playing to Win – Jaci Burton.   Her “Play by Play” series must be part book and part sauna because damn it’s hot in there!

Nothing but Trouble – Rachel Gibson.  If I knew hockey could be like that, I would have become a fan years ago.

For October, I’m carrying some books forward and making some changes.  I know for a fact I am going to have a stack of books a foot high by Hallowe’en so I had better get started now.

In the Time of the Butterflies – Julia Alvarez (book club pick)

Curse of the Wolf – Danica Winters (a friend of mine)

Killing Floor – Lee Child (the talk of the new movie made me want to check out the series)

Dreadnought – Cherie Priest (found on my bookshelf. I should get it read)

Sweet Dreams – Kristen Ashley (a self-pubbed author getting a lot of attention lately)

Wanted: One Scoundrel: A Steampunk Christmas Novella  – Jenny Schwartz (I’m on a steampunk kick at the moment and this sounded like a unique setting)

Once all your yard work is done, make sure you have a stack of books to get you through the upcoming winter.  Remember, you can never have too many because in case of a power outage, you can use them to insulate your walls if you have enough.  What – did you thing I was going to say burn them as a fuel source.  You can’t burn books!
