The TBR Pile

I am using my free day to talk about my favorite thing...books! I have a HUGE TBR pile (I usually read more than one book at a time), and I'd like to see what else everyone else is reading too..

YA
  • Valiant by Holly Black (am in the middle of this, usually I don't like
    paranormal, but this is well-written)
  • Tithe by Holly Black
  • The Book Thief (I'm hearing a lot about this book, how adults are reading it in their book clubs, etc)

ADULT

  • Lean Mean Thirteen by Janet Evanovich (I love this series!)
  • The Sleeping Doll by Jeffrey Deaver (one of my serial killer novels!)
  • Don't Look Down by Jennifer Crusie and Bob Mayer (I have heard so much about Jen Crusie, yet I have never read her...I know, insane, right?)
  • Body Surfing by Anita Shreve (I want this book to be as fantastic as THE PILOT'S WIFE was...we'll see)
  • The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield (My mom is obsessed with this book)
  • Sisters by Danielle Steele (I usually don't read her, but I love all books about sisters and their relationships)
  • Rhett Butler's People (I read an excerpt of this, the scene where Rhett overhears Scarlett profess her love to Ashley in the study from Rhett's POV and immediatley I was taken back to 7th grade and when I read GWTW for the first time....sigh)
  • Salaam, Paris by Kavita Daswani (My fellow Indian author....plus the book is set in Paris!)
  • Girl Most Likely To by Poonam Sharma (Another fellow chick-lit writer....can't wait to get this from Amazon)

What is everyone else reading? I am looking for good YA reads...ones that really resonate with you.

Happy Wednesday!

Dona, while waiting for the revisions on my current book, I thought I'd read like 20 books and make a real dent in my TBR pile. Not true, but I did enjoy BLOOM by Elizabeth Scott and HOW TO TAKE THE EX OUT OF EX-BOYFRIEND by Janette Rallison...

I just finished the ARC of THE LUXE by Anna Godbersen and it was wonderful! (Yes, Steph, it's in the mail.) Otherwise I've been avoiding YA while I'm finishing my sequel. Instead, I've been reading paranormal romance, like Kresley Cole's NO REST FOR THE WICKED and Lynsay Sands's A QUICK BITE.

In my TBR pile: BRUNETTES STRIKE BACK by Kieran Scott, A NON-BLONDE CHEERLEADER IN LOVE by Kieran Scott (I need to catch up), and CROSS MY HEART AND HOPE TO SPY by Ally Carter.
