...On Book Shopping!

Ohhhhh! I went book shopping this weekend. My favorite past time...well... one of my favorite past times! Some of these books have been on my list of books to buy for a while, and others are recent recommendations. There's a little bit of everything I like to read in this neat little pile and I can't wait to get my hands on them. So, here are the latest additions to my TBR pile...

Babylon Babies,  a translation of the futuristic thriller written by the French sci-fi author Maurice G. Dantec. This is one I've had on my list for a while.

The Outback Stars by Sandra McDonald is the first in a military Sci-Fi trilogy -- a recent addition to my list. Big Red Tequila by Rick Riordan, the first book in the Tres Navarre Mysteries, I've been wanting to read these for quite a while and decided now is the time! And could not shop for books without picking up at least one historical romance, so I chose The Promise by T.J. Bennett -- medieval romance set during the reign of Charles V that caught my attention.

A few Contemporary Romances also made my shopping cart. Just the Sexiest Man Alive by Julie James, Head Over Heels by Susan Andersen and A Little Light Magic by Joy Nash are all books I've either been meaning to buy or have been recommended highly. 

And of course, I finished my shopping by buying one Category Romance, The Rancher's Rules by Lucy Monroe. I saw a review in the bloggosphere for this book a while back and I put this book on my list. It finally went from the TBB list to the TBR pile! 

Now, to find the time to read them ALL!


  1. I'm real curious about The Promise. I've read some glowing reviews for it but not by anyone that I "know". So I'm looking forward to hearing what you think. You've got a nice variety in there. I have read Julie James - she's good and have a few of Joy Nash's on my TBR pile but I think their PNR.

  2. Leslie, it caught my eye too and I finally decided to read it. "Legacy" came out before this one and it's related, but also a stand-alone, however this was the one I wanted first. ;P

    I actually decided on James because of your recommendations, thanks! I thought the same thing about Nash's book (a little magic in there, lol!), it was recommended as a Contemp, but hmm....
