I am using last week’s picture as I still have most of these books to read. I actually have quite a few new books that I received this week, but many of them I’ve already read so they don’t make the pile.
Most of my new reads this week are books from new authors I’ve discovered from my visit to RT, but I think I’ll wait until next week to add them to the pile.
And I should really start calling this post My Reading Pile FAIL, but I still aspire to meet my goals.
Here are the books I have in my reading pile this week.
(April 10-April 16, 2011)
Persistence (and luck) pays. I won this in a contest from the author and I just got it the other day. This is on top of the pile for this week. I feel like I’ve been waiting forever for this book. After reading Personal Demons I fell in love with Luc and couldn’t wait until the next book in the series came out. I’m so glad that my waiting has finally come to an end.
This is the second book in the series, which will be out on July 5th of this year. I may just read this now for pleasure and then re-read closer to release date for review, although my enthusiasm may cause me to review it sooner. I’ll know more after I read it.
I’m definitely looking forward to reading this book to find out if the main character Jacob is able to solve the mystery of his mother’s disappearance and if he is a success in his role of protector of human souls.
I received an eARC of The Goddess Test through NetGalley, courtesy of Harlequin TEEN. I have been dying to read this, but I’ve just had so many other books ahead of it in the pile. But as it will be coming out soon – April 19th – I don’t want to wait any longer.
I’ve tried to avoid reading too many reviews, but I couldn’t help but hear great things about it, so I am excited to see for myself.
I’ve kept things a bit lighter this week so that I could finish City of Fallen Angels and so that I could write some of my reviews.
Wishful thinking reads:
I just discovered Ally Carter’s Heist Society and am dying to start reading it, but it may have to wait a few weeks until I get caught up. But it looks so good. Another book I really want to read is Hunger by Jackie Morse Kessler because I enjoyed Rage so much that I really want to read the first book in the series now.
Those left behind:
Here are the books that have been left behind due to me not keeping up with the schedule.
Huntress by Malinda Lo – but only because I’ve determined that I want to read Ash first. City of Fallen Angels (25% read) – I can’t believe after all my talk I didn’t finish this yet. I’m getting a bit better – the remaining books from last week I just need to get my reviews written.
Do you create a reading pile?
If so, what’s in your pile this week?
