Ok...a couple of months ago I decided to buy books only at the beginning of each month. I didn't want it to come to that, but I had to save money somehow. I gave myself a budget (my book buying was out of control) and prepared myself for some major savings. Well, today I don't know what came over me...maybe the fact that several bookstores are now selling several new releases or maybe the fact that Kristie posted a list of her favorites on her website (yeah, I'll blame it on her...LOL)...well, today I drove down to my favorite UBS and then to the WALMART near my parents' house and proceeded to buy 11 books. Yes, I kid you not. Every now and then I visit my parents and little sister. I tell myself it's because I miss them and want to spend some time with them. Honestly, I'm starting to think I visit only so that I can go to Walmart and the UBS near them. I'm sick, deranged, twisted, ill and...so very very happy I now own 11 more books. What is wrong with me? I've posted about this before. This disease is eating me and my bank account up alive. I don't even read the books. I buy them, bring them home to my apartment and then throw them in my TBR trunk.
I'm pleased with myself BUT in true ROMANCELOVER nature (or should I say DUMBASS?), I went ahead and read the last paragraph of one of the books I bought and nearly had a conniption! I'm sure I'll write about it once I read the book.
I'm honored to present the new members of my TBR family:
1. Candice Proctor, THE BEQUEST (recommended by Kristie)
2. Elizabeth Boyle, BRAZEN TEMPTRESS (I own the others..been looking for this one for ages. The review isn't too good, but I can't leave a series incomplete)
3. Shirley Karr, WHAT AN EARL WANTS (for those I need FLUFF days)
4. Nicola Cornick, WAYWARD WIDOW (heroine was a major BEEATCH in the last book)
5. Judith McNaught, A KINGDOM OF DREAMS
6. Judith McNaught, UNTIL YOU
7. Judith McNaught, ONCE AND ALWAYS
8. Gayle Callen, HIS SCANDAL
9. Lorraine Heath, PROMISE ME FOREVER (here's to hoping she can redeem herself after her last stinker)
10. Liz Carlyle, THREE LITTLE SECRETS (I waited for to get this one before I even began the series...so glad I did...can't wait to read)
11.Georgina Gentry, TO TEASE A TEXAN
I also need need need to re-read IN COLD BLOOD by Capote. I read it in high school. After watching CAPOTE the other night, I'm itching to read the masterpiece one more time (as well as learn as much about Truman Capote as possible).
