Today is the day before I leave for the Family Christmas Extravaganza back home in Michigan. This means several things. One, I'm currently cleaning and doing laundry. Two, I have to hit the grocery store for My Man (Who is staying behind in CA. Yeah, I know - it sucks, but that's just the way it had to be this year). Three, I've got my Sony Reader ready to roll!
This marks the first trip I've taken with my Sony Reader, and let me tell you how excited I am to not have to bring a carry-on bag loaded down with books! Yippee! Besides my $5.99 copy of Scarpetta, I thought it would be fun to share some of the other goodies I currently have loaded and ready for my reading enjoyment while I'm stuck in various airports.
Pictures Of Us by Amy Garvey, Harlequin SuperRomance. I bought this one out of curiosity. Garvey has written several light, fluffy contemporaries for Brava. The HSR line? Not light and fluffy. For the most part HSR stories are more issue and family oriented. I've enjoyed a couple of her Brava titles, and frankly I'm intrigued by this one if only to see if she can pull off a different "tone."
The Viscount Claims His Bride by Bronwyn Scott, Harlequin Historical. OK, if you've been reading this blog for any stretch of time you've probably figured out I'm a massive ho for HH books. This book is connected to the author's recent Harlequin Historical Undone story, which I read and enjoyed, so I thought I'd try it.
A Man She Couldn't Forget by Kathryn Shay, Harlequin SuperRomance. I almost didn't buy this one. Why? It features an amnesia plot and has the love triangle stink on it. Wendy doesn't do amnesia plots and Wendy really hates love triangles. Sigh, but it's Kathryn Shay. I have loved many of her HSR titles. So for her, I'll try a book with an amnesia plot and the love triangle stink.
High Seas Stowaway by Amanda McCabe, Harlequin Historical. Another book I bought because of an HH Undone story. Again, it's loosely connected to an Undone title I read and enjoyed. Also, this one takes place in the Caribbean, and the different setting intrigues me.
Die Before I Wake by Laurie Breton. I read a very positive review for this recently in Publisher's Weekly and it intrigued me. It's one of those Woman Marries Man After Whirlwind Courtship And Finds Out His First Wife Died Under Mysterious Circumstances books. I wanted to bring a suspense novel along in the event I get tired of reading too much lovey-dovey stuff. This one fit the bill.
As for blogging while I'm away? I probably won't be as prolific as I've been of late, but I should be able to pop in now and again.
