Yup, that’s right! I’ve amassed such a huge collection of books, most that were recommended to ME before I started this site. Old stuff from Christine Feehan, P.C. Cast, Katie MacAllister, Maggie Shayne, Christine Warren and so on. Alright…I’ll admit my “To Be Read” pile is outta control…I gotta put a dent in it. And this isn’t even half of it, but it’s what I’m planning on reading first (Oh boy…where to start?)
I’ve been so busy trying to catch up with all the latest releases. Unfortunately, I’ve discovered that some of them, lately, have not thrilled me as much as the stuff I was reading a year ago, when I first started in this genre. I have lots of series that I started but never finished because there was so much new stuff to choose from. In the beginning, I would read through an entire series without interrupting the pace. As I started collecting, and my “TBR” pile grew, I became like a kid in a candy store. A bite here, a bite there, I couldn’t stop nibbling on all of ‘em. But it’s time I settle down again, and immerse myself like I used to.
So while I will continue to read & review the new releases I am super excited about (you know, new releases from a series that I already love, like Infinity from Sherrilyn Kenyon, and Eternal Kiss of Darkness from Jeaniene Frost, anything from J.R. Ward etc…), I’m going to do a marathon of “oldies” (meaning a marathon of reviews on them, too).
Right now, I’m reading “Dark Challenge” from Christine Feehan, and after I pummel my way through these, I think I’m going to go right to her “Ghost Walker” series (you know all those books that have “Game” in the title…Shadow Game, Mind Game, Night Game and so on…) I hear those are REALLY good. Thing is, if I remember correctly, I found Ms. Feehan’s “Dark” series a bit too *much* to read them all in a row (sickly sweet and would induce extreme “eye rolling” in the romance department), so I will intersperse my Feehan marathon with some of the highly anticipated newbies.
So what’dya think? Good idea? I’m excited. All these old book just waiting to be read. I remember how excited I was to get them, and how dreamy they made me feel while I started each new series, so I’m hoping going “back to my roots”, and finishing them, will bring that feeling back again.
Hope you guys enjoy!
Oh poop! Someone please tell me where I just put my Dark Challenge book?! I lost it already. I pulled out all sorts of books to take a neat picture…and put them all away again and guess what? I probably put that one away too! Grrrrrr!! Now I gotta search through the piles again (and it’s cuttin’ into my reading time!)
