My Read-A-Thon Book Pile

Frill Kill by Laura Childs - Already reading this one
Undead and Unreturnable by MaryJanice Davidson - Already reading this one too
One for the Money by Janet Evanovich - For the first time Nancy and I will be reading the same book during at least part of the read-a-thon. Everywhere we went last week people kept raving at us about this series so we decided to try it. I had the first in a box and Nancy went out and bought a copy. We'll see what we think.
Undead and Unpopular by MaryJanice Davidson - I am really into this series right now and can easily see myself wanting to just keep reading in this little world I love so much.
Death of a Gossip by M.C. Beaton - I have never read anything by this author but this one is short and looks interesting.
Heat Wave by Richard Castle - I love Castle! I thought this might be a good read.
The Good Friday Murder by Lee Harris - Again, I haven't read anything by this author but it looks good. I love mysteries.
Flight to Freedom by Ana Veciana-Suarez - This one was in my TBR box and looks interesting.
Kissing Annabel by Steven Herrick - In my TBR box and one I am not too sure about. It's all poetry so I figure I may give it a try and see what I think.
Why I Let My Hair Grow Out by Maryrose Wood - Also from my TBR box. A YA book that looks interesting and fun.
The Most Important Thing I Know - Words of wisdom from all different people. Looks interesting and quick, perfect for when I need a break from an involved story.
The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson - I was lucky enough to go to a signing that Maureen Johnson did in Houston a few weeks back and got this on the first day it came out and got it signed. It looks so good!
The Last Little Blue Envelope by Maureen Johnson - I got this at the signing too. I loved the first book and can't wait to read this one.
Milk Eggs Vodka - Looks so strange, a book of grocery lists. Interesting.

For the first time ever I am not putting a book I am currently reading on this list. I started Four Seasons in Rome by Anthony Doerr on Monday and haven't gotten very far with it and am honestly not sure if I am going to keep reading it. It's an interesting topic but so far his style just hasn't grabbed me. So I'm not planning on reading it tomorrow. I think I have more than enough to read!


  1. I hope you love Last Little Blue Envelope! It took me a bit to get used to how things start out...but once I did I loved it!

    I hope you like the Stephanie Plum series as well, they are absolutely hilarious!

  2. Your stack looks great! Happy reading and good luck on tomorrow's read-a-thon.

  3. You're reading "the Last Little Blue Envelope"??? ME TOO!!!!!! I read the first book and loved it. I think that will be my second book, I am really excited to read it.

    It looks like you have some food books picked out. "Milk Eggs Vodka"? With a title like that, where can you go wrong?

    TTYL :)

  4. Oh my gosh my typing is terrible this early in the morning...
    I meant to say "good" books picked out, guess I have food on the brain.
