What's on the list? A little bit of everything!
- YA books
- Middle grades books
- Research books for The Cinderella Society series
- Research books for my option book
- Women's fiction and romance books
- Even the occasional inspirational non-fiction title
But I am committed to getting back to reading. Not only is it good for me to make time for things I enjoy, but it's good for my career too. Reading fabulous books inspires me to be a better writer. And so, with much fanfare, I moved my teetering TBR piles away from my comfy reading chair (where they were on the verge of burying me in paper if it toppled over) and into the safety of a bookcase. I can happily stare at these books and get all giddy about the literary goodness that awaits me.
Except... I can never decide what to read.
The problem, I've discovered, is that having too many good books to read is almost as troublesome as having not enough good books to read. Am I in the mood for a chick lit or a mystery? A middle grades adventure or a serious women's fiction? Usually I'm somewhere in the middle and that's no help whatsoever, thankyouverymuchbrain.
Craziest of all? I'm still. buying. books. I swear I need adult supervision when I enter a bookstore. But you know what? I will read those books. I will.
In fact, I'm willing to make a solemn vow right here at the Teen Fiction Cafe:
I vow to read the books currently on my TBR shelves by 12/31/10 come heck or high water.
There. I feel better already. Now if I could just decide what to read next. :-) What are you reading right now?
