A Blessing and a Curse

Every once in a while I find myself completely overwhelmed by my reading list. It’s a “good” bad. I mean, I don’t think I will ever complain that I have too much to read but the timing is sometimes an issue for me. I’m not always in the mood to read the titles when they need to be read. So what I end up doing is reading what I want, and then I can’t post the review because the book won’t be out for months. See? Timing!

Here is what I must read over the next six weeks. Some are review commitments, some are commitments I made to myself and others are here because they are borrowed and I really need to get them back to their owners. If any of them appeal to you, click on the cover for more info.

The Murderer's Daughters

The Four Ms. Bradwells


The Raising

The Wikkeling 

Ordinary Thunderstorms

The London Train

There is No Year

Canticle for Leibowitz


Kat Incorrigible


The Big Clock

With Spring Break around the corner, I plan to read at least three of these but these days, my time is spent watching the Otter Pup. She regressed a bit, so I’ve been watching her every move and it’s completely worn me out. At least now that the list is in front of me, it doesn’t look so intimidating. Yes, I think I can do this.

How many books do you have in your immediate TBR (to be read) pile? I say “immediate” because if I counted every book on my virtual list it’s like, 300 or something.

My Shelves Overfloweth

I am usually pretty good at pacing my reading to include a couple of review copies, along with a book or two that I am reading just for fun. However, due to the generosity of several bloggers and publishers, I have a nice, healthy stack of books that I must get to within the next couple of weeks. I know that this causes stress for some bloggers but these are all books that I am dying to read so I am anxious, but in a good way.

So, in an attempt to organize my chaotic self, here’s a quick list of what I will be reading over the next few weeks in no particular order:

Book List 1

Book List 2

The Glass Room by Simon Mawer
Let The Great World Spin by Colum McCann
Keeper by Kathi Appelt
The Passage by Justin Cronin
Legend of a Suicide by David Vann
The Secret Lives of People in Love by Simon Van Booy
First They Killed My Father by Loung Ung
Trackers by Patrick Carman
The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest by Stieg Larsson
A Week in December by Sebastian Faulks
Black Hills by Dan Simmons

Well, enough with the list, off I go to put a dent in it.
