Ten Books I'd Like to Buy Soon

 I've been buying books like it's my job lately.  Not being face to face with my book collection on a regular basis has kind of made me forget how many I own that are just back at home.  Plus, the only thing that feels better then buying new books is that box full of new books arriving in the mail!  Lately I've been trying to buy most of my books from Bookshop.org so the money can help a local bookstore or Book Outlet because I do love a good used book bargain.  And since I'm visiting both sites on a pretty regular basis I feel like I need to keep good lists because I want so many books it's hard to keep track of them all! 

1.  Life and Other Inconveniences by Kristan Higgins - I really enjoy the books I've read by Higgins but it's been awhile since I picked up one of her books and this cover has a dog on it!

2.  What the Dead Leave Behind by Rosemary Simpson - I have read one book in this historical mystery series and I loved it and need to read more.

3.  The Marmalade Murders by Elizabeth J Duncan - I don't know much about this one but I like the title and it looks like a fun read.

4.  Color Me Murder by Krista Davis - I really wanted to pick this book up when it first came out but somehow didn't and now it is time to fix that!

5.  A Treacherous Curse by Deanna Raybourn - I've enjoyed this series and have read the most recent book and the first two and am now trying to read the two in the middle!

6.  Last Ride to Graceland by Kim Wright - We have been in Memphis for 3 months now and I'm really beginning to enjoy our new city and its history.  I picked up some books by a favorite author that supposedly took place in Memphis but it's pretty clear she'd never actually been to the city so I thought I'd try this one.  Plus, the premise just sounds good!

7.  52 Loaves: One Man's Relentless Pursuit of Truth, Meaning, and a Perfect Crust by William Alexander - I do love a good project nonfiction and this sounds intriguing.

8.  Smoke in Mirrors by Jayne Ann Krentz - No real reason for this one in particular other then a Krentz book is always a good pick for a nice distracting candy bar of a read.

9.  The French House: An American Family, a Ruined Maison, and the Village that Restored Them All by Don Wallace - This qualifies as kind of a project nonfiction which is one of my favorite genres and it just sounds great.

10. To Brew or Not to Brew by Joyce Tremel - There was a lot of positive buzz when this one came out but I never picked this one up.  Now seems like the time to grab it!

What books are tempting you these days?


  1. Thank you for the updates - nice mix of reads.

  2. I've seen life and other inconveniences and it sounds great! The Marmelade Murders has a catchy and sticky title...!

    Hope your week is good so far! Here's my 10 Favorite quotes from books

  3. I think it's always fun to consider new books. You could think of this as 'book therapy' - good for the mind and soul. I have that Higgins book but I haven't read it yet. Kind of forgot that I own it. I lover her books and I suspect it would be a good mood booster. Thanks for reminding me!

  4. So many great looking books on your list. I have to check out the Last Ride to Graceland. Sounds interesting.

  5. I've got four cozies, one fantasy, and one YA I want to read next supposedly. A few I may have to buy on my own.

  6. Right now, I'd love to go crazy and order ten books and have them all arrive in a few hours. Wouldn't that be wonderful?

  7. I find half the fun is trolling around the book websites and then the arrival then the reading. It's great. These all look good and of course Kristan Higgins is always a favourite.

  8. I'm the same-I keep buying books 'for the winter' but making no progress in reading any of them!

  9. I agree - I get more of a charge from buying books than from any other kind of purchases. I do feel a lot of guilt about buying more, though, since I already have enough to stock my own library. Ha ha.

    Happy TTT (on a Wednesday)!
