Summer is going fast already! Of course, not liking heat, bugs, sweat, dirt, yard work and high utility bills, I am not a fan of summer. However, I do love to curl up with a cold drink and "an improving book" (as my beloved Jeeves would say), and I have a huge stack that I'm eager to dive into.
Here are a few I'm especially looking forward to:
Lisa Bergren's River of Time Series. This was another series I started and really enjoyed and then was forced to set aside because of real-life deadlines. I loved the characters in these time-travel books, and I want to get reacquainted.
Tiger's Paw by Kimberly A. Rogers. This is a novella, the prequel to her long, ambitious urban fantasy series. Rogers is imaginative and has the skill to touch minds and hearts with her writing. I'm eager to find out where her characters will take me.
And, somewhat related to each other, I want to read The Monogram Murders by Sophie Hannah and Poirot and Me by David Suchet. Hannah's book is a new Poirot mystery sanctioned by Agatha Christie's estate, and how could I miss the story of how actor Suchet spent twenty-five years as the incarnation of Christie's classic Belgian detective?
I could go on for several pages on the subject of books I want to read. And I have deliberately not included any of the wonderful books by my fellow Inkwell writers. First off, there are too many to list here. And if you want to see them all, you can look at our books page.
So what's in your TBR pile? And why?
