usually Paranormal Book rEview Thursday (but not today!)
If you’ve been reading this blog, or better yet, following me on Twitter, you’ll know that the last few months my life has gotten crazy. With my personal life trying to take over my professional life and that little thing we like to call the ‘job’ happening, as well as running CRW’s Award of Excellence contest, my free time has shrunk to nothing.
So once again I face what I thought would be an easy task. The idea that I would read one new paranormal book a month seemed easy when I thought of it last Fall. I love to read and I need to be reading in my genre, plus I love my genre. And there are so many authors, great ones, bad ones, even in-between ones that I haven’t read that I should have no problem finding a book to read. And I have to say, finding books to read is never the problem.
But finding the time to read them is. It’s a huge problem. Some people read at night, but I have this pesky man called a husband, who is not a reader. He seems to think that when my head is in a book I’m not paying attention to him. Who? What? Oh yeah… he’s right.
And he’s not the only reason I don’t read at night. I have so much to catch up on that all my hours are spoken for.
So today I find myself, once again, without a book to review. So instead of telling you about a book that I’ve read and recommend, I’m going to share with you some books I would love to find the time to read!
I’ve heard that Kresley Cole is an amazing author.Toppling at the top of my TBR pile is Demon From the Dark, and it’s been there for almost a year. I love the sexy man with the tatoo on the cover, I love the tiny blurb on the front:
He comes from the dark to demand her surrender…
I especially love the dot-dot-dot at the end, we all know what that implies!
But it’s languishing until I find the time, so someone please read it for me! And if you’ve already read it, and the rest of the Immortals After Dark series, you could stop by the bookstore and purchase her latest release, Lothaire. It promises more hot dark paranormal romance. And, correct me if I’m wrong, but this cover model bears a striking resemblance to Sting. MMM.
Another author I’ve been dying to try is Larissa Ione. I have two of her books in my TBR pile, Ecstasy Unveiled. (Gotta love that title) and Desire Unchained. With dark sexy titles like that and dark sexy covers to match there is no doubt that my poor husband would get none of my attention. (Well, maybe after I was finished!)
Larissa is another author that everyone says I should read. And I agree! Find me the time and I am so there, turning page after page. Anyone willing to volunteer to take over my bathroom cleaning so I can get to reading?
Larissa even has a new release coming out in May, Lethal Rider. Hot, hot, hot! You can just tell by the bulging biceps and the windblown hair. I’m so jealous of everyone who is managing to squeeze some paranormal reading into their lives.
It’s not that I’m not reading, it’s just that I have required reading. Much of it is very good, but I’m not reading paranormal right now. But I will be someday!
For now please know, I’m reading by proxy this month. Let me know if you’ve read any of these authors. Share with me your insights and if it’s worth throwing my husband over so I can peruse the paranormal once more. In the meantime, I have hopes that over the summer I’ll get to make the pile shorter, instead of taller.
And if you’d like to win a copy of Little Red Riding Wolf, hop on over and check out my blog on fairy tales at Paranormal Freebies. The contest closes at midnight tonight!
