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?
The Bourbon Kings / J.R. Ward
It’s that kind of week, guys. When I can’t focus on any of the books that I have on my pile. And I don’t have any scheduled posts. So I’m practically grasping at straws. I hate skipping days though. I feel like if I miss a day without posting, it opens the door for excuses and hiatususesssss. At the same time, some people would just rather read something of quality than someone’s incoherent babbling. But who cares, right? I mean, I love reading your posts. So I don’t care if you talk about your cat, your neighbour’s cat, and how you want to get a tattoo of your neighbour’s cat. You write them, I’ll read them.
The book featured above is a recent acquisition. It’s very rare when I jump onto a book soon after I ripped the Amazon box it came from. The Bourbon Kings became somewhat of a precioussss commodity when I first heard about it, so of course I had to read it right away.
I don’t really have anything concrete to talk about today, except to share this gratuitous book photo of the week. I mean, if you’re like me, you probably spend hours on Tumblr and Instagram looking at #bookporn. I thought, why not? It could be a thing. I could do this semi-regularly. I could post a random picture of a book and talk about my day. 🙂
I hope you’re all having a great week. I can practically taste the weekend. It’s long weekend for us, Canadians (yay!).
