Book List!




Most of us have books that are near and dear to our hearts--books that we treasure and admire.


And there are some books that have yet to be read, but that pique our interests even though we haven't read a word.


I have always loved books since I was a very young child. My parents bought me books before I even knew how to read them.


I buy books quite often--so much so, that I've accumulated an awesome to-be-read pile, like many book lovers do.


I'll only list a few of the books on my pile because it would take forever to list them all.


Note: These are not books that I plan to purchase, these are books that I have already bought, and are waiting to be read at my house. :-D Here are a few:


THE GOOD HOUSE by Tananarive Due


THE OTHER BROTHER by Brandon Massey


STREET MAGIC by Caitlin Kittredge


DEMON INSIDE by Stacia Kane


HELL HOUSE by Richard Matheson


DUMA
KEY by Stephen King


SKINWALKER
by Faith Hunter (currently reading--it's awesome!)


THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UNDEAD by Kim Harrison


THE KITE RUNNER by Khaled Hosseini


WINGS by Aprilynne Pike


THE HUNGER GAMES by Suzanne Collins


CURSED TO DEATH by L.A. Banks


HALFWAY TO THE GRAVE by Jeaniene Frost


URBAN SHAMAN by C.E. Murphy


DON'T MAKE A BLACK WOMAN TAKE OFF HER EARRINGS by Tyler Perry as Madea


OFFSPRING by Liam Jackson


PUSH by Sapphire


ANANSI BOYS by Neil Gaiman


HEART-SHAPED BOX by Joe Hill


FATHOM by Cherie Priest


MONSTER by Frank Peretti


I have many more, in various genres. I have non-fiction, commercial fiction, literary fiction, a few classics, etc. I named mostly genre fiction (horror/sci-fi/fantasy) because it's my favorite. :-D


So, what are a few books on your TBR pile?

Cool. I'm actually looking for a book to start reading. I'm so picky. I will read the first chapter to know if the rest of the book is even worth reading :)

Miss you too!

I'm still struggling through art biz books (which are proving less & less helpful.) I have a book on fractal geometry I still need to get to. I just finished "Life, Inc.; How the World Became a Corporation and How to Get it Back." I'd highly recommend it.

Good luck getting to them! I'm reading Dracula and then I plan to move onto a book called Silk... very exciting stuff!

happy reading! (and writing!)

I should list some of my tbr pile. Might make a good blog post.

Merry Monteleone said...

Great list, Demon Hunter!

I've got a lits of 100 on my fill in the gaps page here which is a great project spearheaded by moonrat. I've actually read three more of them that I haven't gone back to ex off yet, and I'm reading Stuart Neville's Ghosts of Belfast right now - and it's friggin' brilliant!

There's at least two that I started and didn't like, and I'm not sure what to do about that yet - I might just save them for later and try again or I might note that I only read "this much" and didn't like it.

Demon Hunter said...

Ms. P.
Read one of these. You'll be pleased I sure. ;-)

Lana,
I'll look for it. :-D

Dejanae,
LOL. :-D

Kara,
I know that you should have a huge list. :-D

Charles,
Do that. I will make a great blog post. ;-)

Merry,
Wow. Impressive list. You have a lot of the same books I do. Cool. :-D

Christina said...

Do you have a librarything? I'd love to befriend you and see what books we have in common. I keep telling myself that I really need to curve the book buying, because at this rate, there isn't going to be room for me in my office.

I am scared to county my tbr pile, especially when in a fit of something nameless (call it book greed) I just ordered a bunch more books. but I know there are well over 200 on that shelf. It was half full when I built it a couple of months ago. Now it's 3/4 full!

Robin said...

That's quite the TBR list, Tyhitia! I've got 2 giant piles next to my bed, so I just checked. Duma Key and Heart Shaped Box are also in mine! Also "Stephen King On Writing", "The Lightning Thief", "Bad Moon Rising", and "The White Queen".

Cate Gardner said...

You're going to love Heart-Shaped Box. Fantastic.

Myne Whitman said...

I have read the Tanarive, Khalid, Gaiman and Perreti books and will recommend you start from there. Nice collection.

laughingwolf said...

currently finishing a heavy [literally] tome - solved and unsolved: classic true murder cases, ed. by richard glyn jones

Demon Hunter said...

Christina,
No. I don't have a library thing. I may get one eventually. :-D

Written,
Wow. That's a lot of books. Well, I can't say anything. I only listed some of mine. :-D

Robin,
Cool. You have a few I've never heard of. Well, I have but I don't know what they're about. I may read the summaries. :-D

Cate,
I heard I would. :-D

Myne,
Thanks for joining us. Come back. :-D I love Tananarive. :-D

Laughing Wolf,
Wow. Yes, I love all genres too, but there's nothing like reading your favorite genre though. :-D

Street Magic and Demon Inside are awesome! You'll love them. They're my two favourite reads of the year so far.

Miladysa said...

I'm reading most of my fiction online these days - working my way through the webfictionguide.com!

Devon Ellington said...

Oh, gosh, I'd have to go across the room and look at them!

I'm also re-reading a bunch of books, mostly non-fiction, for various projects.

If I go to visit someone and there are no books in the house, it makes me nervous.

Demon Hunter said...

Laughing Wolf,
:-D

Jay,
You keep telling me about THE LIGHT AT THE END. I'm going to have to find that one. ;-)

Naomi,
That's good to know. Thanks. :-D

Miladysa,
Will you compiling a list too? :-D What are a few of your favorites?

Devon,
If someone has no books, it makes me question some things--or not, if I know them...lol. ;-)
