It’s still fascinating to me when I find a book or two that I didn’t know I own. It’s always a bit like finding a $20 bill in the pocket of your winter coat in the summer. Last weekend, I finally managed to find some reading time in the basement. My basement library contains a lot of read books and unread books. So while sitting on the chaise in front of shelves, there were a couple of books that stood out that I don’t remember buying:
Amplified / Tara Kelly
This book was published back in 2011. It is sad to me that the companion novel was not picked up by its original publisher. It looks like the great people of Entangled picked it up though, but from what I can see, there’s no publication date other than 2015 according to Goodreads. I enjoyed Tara Kelly’s Harmonic Feedback back in the day, and I do remember being excited about her forthcoming novel. I just didn’t realize I’ve picked it up when it came out.
Death and the Girl Next Door / Darynda Jones
Another book I’m excited to find was this YA by an author I greatly love. I’ve been meaning to pick this up ever since I discovered the badassery of Charley Davidson. But every time I go to my bookstore, it always slips my mind. Well, for once, I’m thankful for my short term memory.
I’m really excited to see what else is hiding in my bookshelves. This has been an ongoing problem of mine. I can’t keep up with all the books that I’ve accumulated in the past few years. This year, I know my hoarding tendencies have slowed down (some), but it’s still not at that point where I want to be. Some day. Some day.
Have you cleaned your bookshelves lately?
