Weekend Reads 2

I spent the weekend doing a lot of leisure reading in addition to reading for review purposes. All of my leisure reads were taken from books in my personal ebook stash. These weren't necessarily on my TBR list but simply remained unread on my reader. My best guesstimate is that out of the 1400 titles on my ereader, at least 350 are unread and about 235 are actually on my TBR list. Since my unread and TBR list seemed to be growing exponentially, I decided to whittle both down a bit.

This past weekend's reads included some romance reads and a few short stories: Here to Stay by Catherine Anderson, Ryder's Wife by Sharon Sala, Roman's Heart by Sharon Sala, Royal's Child by Sharon Sala, The Lake by Tananarive Due, Itsy Bitsy by John Ajvide Lindquist, and Hearts on the Run by Bonnie Humbarger Lamer. The last book was actually a review read and I hope to have the review posted within the next few days. 

I'm also hoping to have a review posted on A Crack in Everything by Angela Gerst by this weekend. I currently have plans to take my 14-year-old niece and 16-year-old nephew to see the UniverSoul Circus on Sunday (praying traffic won't be too bad this holiday weekend). I am hoping that I can spend Saturday reading more from my unread and TBR ebooks. (Monday is dedicated to continued unpacking...I didn't know I had so much stuff!) I don't know which titles I'll be reading but I'll keep you informed. Happy reading...
