OMG, my TBR pile is out of control. (That’s ‘in the know’ ‘hep-cat’ lingo for Heavens, my bookshelf is simply bursting with yet to be read tomes!) I thought since I mainly write historicals, I should clarify, but since my daughter accused me of being an out of touch fuddy duddy who didn’t appreciate Nikki Menage’s presence on American Idol, I thought I’d at least try to sound . . . ahem . . . modern. What was that Adam Ant said in his song Room at the Top? An eighteenth century brain in a twenty-first century head. (Oh hell, I just dated myself again.)
For me, a huge part of being a writer includes firing my imagination with good books. It’s a part of my job I thoroughly enjoy. So, I’ve listed some of the many books I’m reading at one time, no less, and (will probably regret this because it’ll just increase the size of my TBR pile) ask you to comment with what’s on your nightstand?
Naima Simone’s as of yet unpublished, unedited masterpiece, Malachim, in Naima’s Secrets and Sins series. Each book will carry the name of the hero as its title. The first book in the Secrets and Sins series is Gabriel and will be release by Entangled in June. Yep, I got to read it first wenches! Don’t hate me.
Heather Graham’s One Wore Blue. One Wore Gray is right underneath it on my bookshelf.
SK Whiteside’s Vexed. I’m Facebook friends with SK and if the cover alone doesn’t sell you on this book, one of the characters is Isis.
I just finished Lila Dubois’ Undone Rebel and immediately bought Undone Dom. Her Undone Lovers series is guaranteed to set your ereader on fire.
Next in the hopper are all the Game of Thrones books.
Oh, and check out the pic of my (rather dusty) bookshelf! You’ll recognize several of our Southern Magic scribes’ books there.
