Okay, I'm going to try this again. Probably, my life will get crazy again and I won't get it all done--it's hard for me to post reviews on a schedule--but I want to try. I want to pull some of these books off my TBR shelves. And even out of the box under my bed.
I am not going to put them down for any particular month, because I often read according to mood and I might not be in the mood for that particular book in whatever month. So...
Here we go.
I'll match them to categories after I've selected them:
1. Moonlight and Mistletoe by Dawn Temple - Series romance (because Dawn's a friend & I've been meaning to read this.)
2. Silent on the Moor by Deanna Raybourn - mystery/suspense (bought this at RWA conference, haven't touched it, and I really want to.)
3. I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith - YA fiction (romance?) I've heard a lot about this over the years & found it at a yard sale. In great shape!
4. The Quiet Gentleman by Georgette Heyer - I'm going to break out Regency from historical romance.
5. Firebird by Mercedes Lackey - fantasy
6. Ships of the Air by Martha Wells - Not Your Usual Setting. It's in Ile-Rien - a made-up place.
7. Southern Comfort by Karen Kelley - Contemporary romance
8. Victory of Eagles by Naomi Novik - fantasy
9. The Captain's Woman by Merline Lovelace - Western romance
10. Mysterious Ways by Terry W. Burns - Inspirational (I've had this a Loooong time...)
11. Dancing with Werewolves by Carole Nelson Douglas - New to me author
12. Love and Honor by Randall Wallace - historical novel (had this a long time too)
Hmm. I may switch the Lackey book out for something else...but my shelves are very heavy with fantasy and SF. 'Cause I like it.
Maybe I'll just name two designated alternates and sub one of them for whichever book I just can't start.
Like Heart of the Wolf by Terry Spear- a paranormal romance, which I've been wanting to read a while now, and For the Love of Pete, by Julia Harper, which looks like a contemporary romantic comedy. :)
I will post blog reviews of these, hopefully when I'm supposed to. If I read them, that will be an accomplishment in itself.
Do y'all have anything you hope to read this year?
