So I've noticed people posting pictures of their TBR piles and well, there are some very shocked people running around. In all honesty, I didn't want to bring up the number of TBRs I have because I realized that maybe I have the most. (I have heard that Ames has a huge TBR pile and Kristie braved posting pictures of her pile). Now, there are readers over at AAR who claim to have close to a thousand books TBR. Let's just say, if I don't start reading soon I will be up there with them ;)
My second blog post ever was about my bookcases and since all my books are packed away I am going to reshow them here. (Seeing my old bookcases all crammed with books makes me a little teary eyed!)

In my ennui (depression) I went over the Chapters.ca and dropped some coin. That always seems to lift my spirits.
I first pre-ordered some books. I've never really done this before but the few times I have, I have found that the books show up either weeks before the street date or the day of. I'm thinking that should be good enough.
No Rest For the Wicked by Kresley Cole - I'm waiting for the video review from Dear Author. I won't care if others hate it or nothing but I love their video reviews so I'm eager to see what they are going to do.
Cold As Ice by Anne Stuart - fangirl! Would sooo stalk her if she lived near me and would probably be the only person that I would meet and immediately be struck mute. I have seen people get all weepy for a celebrity but I always think they are just like me only famous so I wouldn't make such a fool of myself. However, if I ever meet Anne Stuart I will immediately become a nightmare to be around because I will fawn and stare adoringly like a love sick puppy. I figure nobody is ready for that Cindy to show up so it's best she live somewhere I've never heard of.
Thief in a Kilt by Sandy Blair - liked her first book, *loved* her second and have high hopes for this one. What is scary is that it's been probably close to two years since her last publication and I don't see any mention of what comes next on her website. This author reminds me of the old Julie Garwood.
London's Perfect Scoundrel by Suzanne Enoch - I've only ever tried to read her contemporary and I'm pretty sure I never finished it. I usually write authors off after one bad experience but will the polls I have been doing for AAR this book seems to come up a lot. I'm hoping where there's smoke there's fire.
Megan's Mark by Lora Leigh - I'm thinking it was Ames who reviewed this and put a excerpt up. The review and the excerpt sold me. I'm thinking it's a hot paranormal and that seems to be right up my alley lately. Also, in my quest to read more 'new to me' authors this one fits the bill.
Ill Wind by Rachel Caine - I have seen this book reviewed a few times favourably so it went on the TBB list. I don't think it's a romance book because there was a mention how it was such a great book and it even had a little bit of romance. I also seem to recall that it's funny and I like funny.
The Panther and the Pyramid by Bonnie Vanak - Kristie reviewed it and said it was hot. I'm in. Also 'new to me' author.
Finally, (yes, I'm wrapping up) I am having one of those days where I am forever hungry. I only have them about once every few months but they always scare me. I'm afraid the hunger will never leave and I'm also afraid of making myself sick. I eat till I'm full and think, 'great, done' only to have my brain trigger the 'need more food' button. I mean, I don't need more food, right? It's just my brain or hormones are all whacked. Ugh.
Wow, I'm being such a whiner lately!
