I apologize for the lack of posting--my day job is chief toddler wrangler to a 3 year old and 9 month old and as an adjunct professor of writing. Lately, both jobs have been kicking my behind. And I don't know about other readers, but the more stressed I get, the more I tend to re-read keeper shelf books. I just can't handle the disappointment of new reads that don't live up to expectations, and I feel that I'm a bit harsher than usual in my preferences. I do, however, have some great books in store for you. Tomorrow's Book of the Week is a debut that met all my picky expectations and then some and that you will LOVE. Next week, I'm continuing my status as the Lorelei James Fan Blog as well as bringing you a diverse selection of new releases.
What do you re-read when you are too stressed out to read anything new? In the last two weeks, I have re-read:
- The Naked Edge by Pamela Clare. I needed to see a kickass heroine taking charge of her destiny. And also Gabe. Okay. Mainly Gabe.
- Cowgirl Up and Ride by Lorelei James. This is probably my favorite of the Rough Riders, and I opened it up to find a random piece of McKay trivia and ended up re-reading from start to finish.
- Hot Pursuit by Suzanne Brockmann. I'm still working on my Breaking the Rules review, and I went back to this one to revisit Dan and Jenn one more time. Love Jenn.
- Raising Kane by Lorelei James. We shall not discuss the number of Lorelei James books I have devoured in the last month. Some day scientists will discover exactly how she manages to bottle happy endorphins and cowboy pheromones within the printed page. Pretty nifty trick for e-books especially.
I've still managed to read some new stuff too, so stay tuned. Feel free to share your favorite books to re-read!
