What's in your Autumn TBR Pile?

Hey, fellow bloggers! Sorry I’m so late getting my Wednesday entry up. It’s been one of those days. I’ve been busy getting my lap top PC all set up again after my darling daughter crashed the hard drive on it the other week. Then, our well decided to go on the fritz late last night, so we were without water for a good portion of today. Fortunately our nice repair man, Mark, made it here in good time and got us taken care of. Thanks, Mark!

While I was outside visiting with Mark, we both commented on how nice the weather was today for November 19th. I love Autumn. It’s a beautiful time of year, and here in the Midwest we can experience weather ranging from sunny days in the low to mid 70's, to below freezing temps with a mixture of freezing rain and snow to make driving life interesting. But on those days when the sun is shining and the temps are fair, it’s fun to get outside and enjoy Nature’s palette of golds and reds, hear the leaves crunching beneath your feet and listen to the few remaining crickets singing their songs. The cooler, dry days of Autumn are such a relief after the hot, humidity packed days of summer we have here, too.

Ever since I was a kid I’ve loved fall. I think it’s the beginning of a magical time of year with all the fun things we did at school, and the anticipation of the many holidays ahead of us. The vibrant colors of fall are a delight for the eyes, and the days get shorter, giving us permission to take more time to squirrel away with those books we have stacked on our TBR piles.

Speaking of which, I have more than one TBR pile. I need to get busy! Some of the books stacked in those piles for this Autumn are Julie Miller’s Brotherhood of the Badge series from Harlequin Temptation. I just picked up the fourth and final book, Kansas City Christmas, the other day, but it has to wait until I read the first three. I also have Picture of Perfection by Kristin Gabriel, Fearless Fourteen by Janet Evanovich, and Alien Overnight by Robin L. Rotham, to name a few. I can’t wait to read all of those wonderful authors. Those books are my rewards for getting my own writing done. Who needs chocolate?! Well . . . okay, I admit it. I DO! But no books or chocolate for me until I get my work done. Right now I’m working on revisions for Eight Seconds which will be released by Ellora’s Cave next year in one of the Caveman Anthologies. I’ll share more details about Eight Seconds in tomorrow’s post. If you love cowboys, I hope you’ll like Eight Seconds.

So, tell me what titles do you have in your TBR piles for this fall and winter? I’m always on the look out for new books and authors to add to my stash!

Hmm. More books to check out! Thanks, Robyn.

Hey, Sherry. I just wanted to make one little clarification--The Precinct: Brotherhood of the Badge books are from Harlequin Intrigue. The poor old Temptation line doesn't exist anymore--and I know a lot of readers miss it!

My TBR piles are ever growing, but these are the books at the top of the list. Once I finish my last two deadlines at the end of the year, I'm taking a holiday and I'm going on a reading binge!

UNLEASHED by Lori Borrill
NICK OF TIME by Elle James
COVER OF NIGHT by Linda Howard
SHIFTER by Angela Knight/Lora leigh/Alyssa Day/Virginia Kantra
The RAINTREE Trilogy by Linda Howard/Beverly Barton/Linda Winstead Jones

I'm looking forward to adding 8 SECONDS to my TBR list, too! Congratulations!

Julie Miller

Sorry, Julie! Silly me. I knew it was Intrigue. Guess the fingers weren't lisening to the 'ol brain and decided to go in there own direction. Kind of reminds me of my kids not listening to mom and dad. Ha!
