One thing we never have a shortage of in our household is books and my TBR (which stands for To Be Read, for all you newbies out there) pile seems to be extra tall lately. Here are a few of them.
Anything Goes by John Barrowman
I have a huge infatuation with all things Captain Jack so, naturally I have to check this out. Can you believe I nabbed this for like 50p at a charity shop? My life is so awesome!
The Queen of the Damned by Anne Rice
I’m hoping this is better than the movie. In fact, I’m sure it will be, because 90% of the time, the books are better. Anyway, I saw the movie donkeys ago, before I’d even heard of the books, so I don’t remember much. I’m sure I’m going to love it, I love Anne Rice and Interview With A Vampire is one of my favourite books ever.
The Vampire Lestat by Anne Rice
The natural follow up to the Queen of the Damned and because I always need more vampires in my life, obviously.
Gok Cooks Chinese by Gok Wan
Eeek, I LOVE Gok! Yes, I’m flapping about like a total fangirl right now! Do you remember when this was a little series on the telly? Well, I’m going to revisit all those yummy recipes and try to reinvent them at home!
Work Your Wardrobe by Gok Wan
I’ve been reading bits of this here and there and dayamnnn, if anything is going to encourage you to get all fabulous and fine and start getting your style act together, THIS BOOK IS IT. Plus with Gok calling the reader gorgeous at every interval (why, thank you!), yikes, it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy and like I really wanna go shopping for shoes right now!
The Eyes of the Dragon by Stephen King
Because Stephen King, y’all! Enough said.
Nothing is Impossible by Dynamo
This book is so tantalizing. I am becoming more fascinated by musicians and magic daily. I had a sneak peak of this book and it grabs you from the start with Dynamo talking about how he walked on water. I’m a real believer in title anyway, I think anything really is possible, after all, we, as humans, probably haven’t even begun to tap into the mysteries of the universe and our own potential. But that’s a whole other pot of tea. I think this book will be amazing, and I really think it came to me for a reason.
Lost Souls by Poppy Z Brite
I read this when I was a teen and I couldn’t remember a single detail to save my life. But I remember how it made me feel and I bloody adored it to bits, so I have got to read it again!
And as a little bonus, here’s what I’m reading at the moment.
The Silver Witch by Paula Brackston
Two witches, one in the past, one in the future, lots of mysterious things going on. I like Paula Brackston but I do find myself becoming a bit bored with some of the extra long descriptions and the somewhat slow pace at the beginning. But perhaps things will pick up? I’ll let ya know!
Have you read any of these books? What’s in your TBR pile?
