So Many Books, So Little Time

I love being a book blogger. Truly.  I enjoy reading, and I know I'd read whether or not I "had" to, but this responsibility (privilege??) insures that I always have a book on hand ready to go.

Lately I've been getting a lot more unsolicited books, and the ones from this month actually look great. I know I won't get to them all, but I have the freedom to pick and choose, since I didn't specifically request them. However, there are a few that I did request that I should read this month for sure:
Other unsolicited goodies that I don't know how I'm going to find the time for, yet definitely want to:

I just started Goodbye for Now based on your review and am enjoying it so far!

BTW, your link from the main site took me to a 404 page rather than to this post.

I saw someone mentioning And When She Was Good on a Mailbox Monday post. I am not sure what it's about but I did like the choice of cover art! (Especially the fact that they gave her red hair. ha!)

I like the title The Power of Poppy Pendle so I hope you read it specifically to tell me whether or not I would like it. Because I'm just THAT selfish of your reading time, yes I am! ;)

sometimes my husband will joke if there is no book in front of my face, "Oh wow! Look how your mother has changed!" LOL! It really isn't that bad, is it?

Wow! I have really got to hold off requesting because I have been getting some additional lovely reads to review as well. So many interesting ones, it is a challenge staying with one...still figuring it all out but loving the dynamic of knowing I have to review...it keeps me reading more than I would otherwise. ANd challenges me to stay with and finish!

I hadn't heard of any of these. the first one sounds particularly interesting.

Cassandra said...

Looks like a great list of books! I don't think I've heard of any of them but several sound intriguing.

Happy reading!

I am really looking forward to reading Happier at Home myself. Looking forward to your review. Having books just arrive in you mail, must be such a delight. Here is to lots of reading time.

I love Katherine Kellgren! Though it's hard not to think of her as Sadie Kane. :)

And When She Was Good sounds interesting from the title alone.

I loved "The Happiness Project"; will be glad to hear what you think about "Happier at Home."

I'll just add my dittos to the throng who think Happy at Home sounds interesting. For my part, I'm enjoying the contrast between "Abandon a Project, Read Samuel Johnson" in the title.

Beth said...

The Language of Sisters looks intriguing.

I love the whole title of Happier at Home, but I tried to read the Happiness Project and found it extrememly annoying so I don't think I dare attempt the second book.

The Power of Poppy Pendel sounds like a fun book...as does Pigeon Pie. :)

It is hard to make the time!

So many books, so little time - I feel your pain. I forced myself to keep my list of "books I plan to read soon" realistic to match the fact that I'm only reading about 2 books a month at best these days... ::sigh::

Happier at Home is on my Kindle already (though sadly, not free), and I was looking at The Pigeon Pie Mystery at B&N last week... will be interested in seeing your thoughts!
