Thursday Thirteen #6: Books I've Read

Thirteen Books I've Read in Recent Months

I confess, I don't seem able to read as fast as I did a few years ago. Part of the problem is that I am so tired some days that, as soon as I sit down and start to read -- no matter how great the book is...I start to fall asleep. Too bad reading through osmosis isn't yet possible. Some of these are from the overflowing TBR mountain, others are more recent.

1. Black Rose by Nora Roberts
2. Red Lily by Nora Roberts
3. For One More Day by Mitch Albom
4. Haunted by Lisa Childs
5. Merger of Fortunes by Peggy Moreland
6. Back in Fortune’s Bed by Bronwyn Jameson
7. Blue Smoke by Nora Roberts
8. Carolina Moon by Nora Roberts
9. The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith
10. Beyond Control by Rebecca York
11. Dirty Blonde by Lisa Scottoline
12. The Dollmaker by Amanda Stevens
13. The Haunting by Hope Tarr

Angelle Trieste said...

Haven't read any on your list. Do you recommend anything?

Heather said...

Angelle, if you read no one else on my list, I highly recommend Lisa Scottoline. She is phenomenal! The only problem is that her legal thrillers only come out once a year. Way too much time between books! lol

Gina Ardito said...

So...I'm guessing you like Nora Roberts. I love Lisa Scottoline, but wasn't really wild about Dirty Blonde. My fave of hers is still The Vendetta Defense. I may have to check out some of the others on your list.

Kissa Starling said...

I loved that trilogy by Nora Roberts. I find that I don't read so much lately either. I joined the Romance Divas reviewer list for precisely that reason. I can combine my love of reading with my love of promoting and writing. Great list!

Bernadette Gardner and Jennifer Colgan said...

I read Nora's flower trilogy too, loved it!! I wish I had that many titles read this year.

Elle Fredrix said...

Blue Smoke was an awesome book! And I still have the Dollmaker in my TBR pile. I've haven't read any Lisa S for a while. I should pick one up.

Jennifer Shirk said...

I've never read a Lisa Scottoline book!

Thank's for the tip!

Debora Dennis-Mills said...

Just finished Hope Tarr's The Haunting the other night - enjoyed it.

Rhonda Stapleton said...

I haven't read any of those, either...but thanks for the good list! I should hit some of those up...

Jana said...

Ooo, I've got the Dollmaker in my TBR pile. Was it any good? It'll probably be the next one I pick up.

I don't read as quickly or as frequently as I used to either. Maybe it's an age thing? ;-)

Joely Sue Burkhart said...

I don't read as much any more, either, although I do try to read at least one book a month. I usually have several in various stages throughout the house. I haven't read any of these on your list.

Tempest Knight said...

Oh, I've never read any of these. I'll have to check them out.

heather rae scott said...

You'll have to let me know how The Haunting is. I'd planned to take it with me tomorrow, K has a field trip that I'm chaperoning and thought better of it. I haven't read any of the latest Nora's.

This is a great list. I wish I had more time to read.

R.G. ALEXANDER said...

I havent read any on that list-though my sister is in the middle of that Nora trilogy. I loved her Key series, and that Jewels of the Sun thing. Great List!

JENNA said...

Oh, I want to read THE HAUNTING!

Heather said...

Gina~ Yes, I like Nora, though don't read her as much as I used to. As for The Vendetta Defense...omg, yes! The elderly Italian men in that one totally cracked me up; I could actually hear them in my mind. That book totoally rocked!

Elle~ I confess to reading BS and CM because I wanted to read them before seeing the made-for-televios movies. I loved the building up of suspense over the years in Blue Smoke. CM, on the other hand...I had a hard time getting into that one.

Jana and Elle~ The Dollmaker was good, though reading parts of it late at night during a thunderstorm maybe not a good idea. I don't want to say anything more about it, lest it color your opinion of it. ;)

Lara said...

Reading... gosh, I wish I still had time to do that. *sigh*

Lis said...

I can't wait to read the Haunting :)

Crystal Jordan said...

I read number 4, too. I quite liked it.

Anna J. Evans said...

Nice list! I wish I had as much time for reading as I used to!

Anna J. Evans

Nicole Austin said...

Great list! Looks like some great reading.

shelley said...

I'm a huge Nora Roberts fan. I haven't read Lisa Scottoline before. I think I'll check her out :)

Dayna_Hart said...

Lisa Scottoline is on my 'look for her on your next shopping trip' list.

I'm wishing I could read more, too. It seems there aren't enough hours in the day, days in the week, etc.

Jennifer McK said...

I've got some new authors to add to my list now. I don't know if that's a good thing or not. LOL.
Thanks for the list!
