TBR pile

I put some books together that I’m planning on reading in the next few weeks. We’ll see whether I will go through with this plan. Almost all of them I swapped at a German swap site, if you haven’t tried book swapping I recommend you give it a try. It’s cheap, you get rid of books you no longer want and eventually you will find what you were always looking for without spending a cent.  The books range from non fiction, chick lit, romance and detective story to fan fic. Well, not sure whether I can classify “Mr. Darcy takes a wife”  as fan fic, but it sort of is, isn’t it. I have heard so much about that book; the book has 505 reviews on amazon.com and the 5 star and 1 star reviews are more or less balanced.

M/M romance challenge 2010

Anesthezea from I heart paperbacks is hosting another m/m romance challenge again. The one this year was pretty productive for me, I reviewed 52+ stories. I haven’t read nearly as much as I wanted in the last few months, so I need to get back into the swing of things. Maybe the challenge will help. You will find details about it at I heart paperbacks.

These are the first few books I will read.

  • “Haunted by your soul”, the second book in Marguerite Labbe’s Triquetra series
  • “Reparation in blood”, the final book in the Partnership in blood series. I can’t believe I still haven’t read that one yet. Oh, it might not be the last thing we’ve heard about the vampires and wizards, Ariel said she has started on a post-war sequel, so there is some hope for more.
  • “L.A. Boneyard” by P.A. Brown, a new author for me.
