♫My Little Po-- *ahem* TBR♫

 

Someone said they had a big tbr…

 

biggerlist

 

 

I am not a List Aficionado,  but I  like lists. I have my Favorite lists, my TBR lists [and my TBR is a list of books I am actually going to read, not just a list of books I might someday, sometime, maybe perhaps, get around to reading]. I make grocery lists. I make Wish Lists on Amazon. I do the schedule for Children’s Story for church. I make lists of my Magic: The Gathering cards.

 

 

So to celebrate lists, I figured I’d post what is currently on my Kindle. That way you can see what is on my TBR for the next 6-12 months. When I finish one series, I simply replace it with another from my Calibre TBR list. Calibre is a fine piece of free ebook managing software. It is also where I keep my reviews offline. The numbers in parentheses are the number of books I have in that series that I still need to read. So without further ado, here’s a list of series I’m reading:

 

 

Dread Empire  by Glen Cook [3]

All Creatures Great and Small by James Herriott. [1]

Brother Cadfael by Ellis Peters [10]

Omega Force by Joshua Dalzelle [5]

Blood on the Riek trilogy by Sand Mitchell. Warhammer novels [1]

Forgotten Realms: The Harpers by various and sundry [15]

The Sackets by Louis Lamour [13]

Malazan Book of the Fallen by Steven Erikson [9]

Shadows of the Apt by Adrian Tchaikovsky [9]

The Polity series by Neal Asher [14]

Count to the Eschaton by John Wright [1]

Books by Patricia McKillip [17]

Alex Hunter by Greig Beck [3]

Chronicles of Dune by Frank Herbert [7]

Enchanted Forest Chronicles by Patrica Wrede [3]

Tales of Shikanoko by Lian Hearn [2]

The Space trilogy by C.S. Lewis [2]

Malaz Empire by Ian Esslemont [5]

Night Angel by Brent Weeks [2]

7Th Sword by Dave Duncan [3]

The Swan’s War by Sean Russell [2]

Chess Team Adventures by Jeremy Robinson [9]

Misc:

  1. Warrior King
  2. Guns of the Dawn
  3. Dreams of Distant Shores
  4. Infinity Engine
  5. The Twelfth Imam
  6. The City of Mirrors
  7. Revenger
  8. Lord of Light
  9. Indomitable
  10. A Fire Upon the Deep
  11. United States of Japan Currently Reading

 

The nice thing about having such a variety of series is that it takes me 6-8 weeks to cycle through them all, so I never feel like I’m reading something stale. And as you can see, several series only have 1, or 2, books left, so then I just replace them, thus continuing the cycle of fresh reading. The other bonus that it has for me, is that I don’t have to “choose” what book to read next. I simply read the next book of the next series. Back in ’11 or ’12 I tried to do the whole “read whatever the heck I feel like at the moment” and it ended up as a disaster. This type of thing definitely doesn’t work for everyone and I’d be very hesitant to recommend it, but it works for me and how I read.

 

 

Now here’s a funny Cyanide & Happiness comic strip about lists to end this post:

ps, I am always available for a little bank-robbing, IF, you can guarantee that the cops will show up and we’ll go out in a blaze of gunfire and glory. Cops are negotiable, as I will settle for private security, mercenaries, aliens or even super-heroes, but the Guns & Glory are non-negotiable.

Why would grown men in the Chinese government feel threatened by Peppa Pig?

 

If anyone say the Chinese government is fine, don't believe this person. How could a government be fine while feeling threatened by children books about pink pigs.

New release and Giveaway from The Rebound List by Hedonist Six Publication

The Rebound List

by Hedonist Six Publication 
Date: February 24, 2017 
Genres: Adult, Women’s Fiction, Romance, Contemporary

BUY:

 

SYNOPSIS:

After nearly four years with Jeff, everything fell apart. I found myself single, scared, but somehow liberated as well. Rather than stumble into another ill advised relationship, my best friend Sally helped me find focus. I would spend the next few months “finding myself” sexually. That’s how The Rebound List was born. My journey begins with the first item on my list – a virgin. But it’s not easy to go from squeaky-clean committed girlfriend to wanton sex goddess. Hopefully I’ll have the guts to follow through! What (or whom) would you do to celebrate your freedom after your first serious relationship breaks down?

ABOUT HEDONIST SIX

Call me “H.” or Hedonist if you prefer. I’m a Romance writer based in London and I’ve always been a dreamer, though it didn’t occur to me to write down the stories I kept dreaming up until 2012. You’ll not find flowery language and poetry in my work. What you will find though is believable characters, none of whom perfect, going through life and trying to find happiness. Just like the rest of us. I first started writing because I craved to see more of “my kind of books” on the shelves. In any scenario, you’ll find me rooting for the underdog. The (emotionally) scarred hero who hasn’t really had much (or any) luck in love. The shy office worker who wants to pursue the man of her dreams, but hasn’t quite mustered the courage yet. All my characters are beautifully flawed and messed up, in a way that makes them perfect for one another.

Blog Tour w/Review - The List

The List BT Ban

 

Today is our stop on the blog tour for The List by Tawna Fenske! Check it out and grab your copy today! And be sure to enter Tawna’s giveaway today!

 

 

 the list

 

The List Synopsis:

 

As the millionaire owner of a chain of computer shops, Simon Traxel isn’t normally hands-on with mundane repairs. But when a fretful brunette shows up with her fried laptop and killer green eyes, he makes an exception. And as it turns out, she needs more hands-on help than Simon imagined.  

 

Brainy soil scientist Cassie Michaels has spent her whole life feeling like a grungy tree trunk beside her delicate flower sisters. To make herself more interesting, Cassie invented stories about her wild sex life—stories she’s expected to retell in vivid detail at a bachelorette party. Cassie’s attempt to catalog her biggest whoppers goes awry when she spills wine on her laptop and lands in Simon’s shop with her sexy list frozen on the screen.  

 

But Simon’s interest is piqued, and the two strike a deal to make Cassie’s make-believe sexploits a reality. From steamy public romps gone hilariously awry, to sexy antics with kitchen utensils, their quest to conquer The List is equal parts scorching hot and adorably awkward.  

 

As they near the end of The List though, Cassie and Simon second guess their pledge to shake hands and say goodbye when they cross off the last item. But will Simon’s big secret make that the one fantasy that can never come true?

The ListThe List by Tawna Fenske
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book was actually very fun to read. Cassie walks into Simon's shop for help with a laptop issue. They are seriously attracted to one another from the moment he returns said laptop.

This author never fails to give me the feels. Whether it be to cry, laugh, or just generally want to maul someone (in both good and bad ways.) Just such a fun book as I really hope to see more of these characters in upcoming stories. Makes me want to make my own list, if you want the truth.

These two were very obviously meant to be together. Despite choosing to hide certain things from their pasts, they keep it on a shallow basis for now. Love does not usually want to be a side dish. Seriously good story with an excellent pace.
