So, I grabbed the ones that looked the best and made a to-be-read pile. I...*cough*...haven't really made a dent in it, BUT! at least they're there for when I DO.
From the top to the bottom:
- Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen (started)
- Deryni Rising by Katherine Kurtz (started)
- Deryni Checkmate by Katherine Kurtz
- High Deryni by Katherine Kurtz
- Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
- Mansfield Park by Jane Austen
- Northanger Abby by Jane Austen
- Persuasion by Jane Austen
- Emma by Jane Austen
- Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
- Monster Slayers by Lukas Ritter
- Like Gold Refined by Janette Oke
- Eon by Alison Goodman
- Starlighter by Bryan Davis
- Ghost by Wayne Thomas Batson
- Sword in the Stars by Wayne Thomas Batson
- The Errant King by Wayne Thomas Batson
Now, these are not in the order that I'm going to read them. They're in the order of size. P&P is only at the top because I've already started it (by the way, the BBC P&P mini series from way back? Did an EPIC EPIC job of quoting directly from the source material. I love that series....!)
Anyway, not to be a hipster, but you've probably never heard of the Deryni series. That's ok, neither have I. They were my mom's books from years ago, and once upon a time she suggested them to me. I read the first book and liked it, but never ended up reading the rest of the series. So, I'm trying again (its about an age-old wizard war, and it's full of betrayal and death. It's awesome!).
I'm going to read the Jane Austen books because, duh, Jane Austen!
The rest of the books (well, not #12) have been sitting on my brother's bookshelf for years, so I thought I'd finally get around to at least IDENTIFYING what I want to read first. I think part of the reason it took me so long to get around to (and is still taking me so long!) is because if Ian doesn't say DAD I LOVED THAT BOOK BUY THE NEXT ONE IN THE SERIES, dad won't buy the next one in the series when it comes out, so we have a lot of first-of-a-trilogy books.
But I LOVE LOVE LOVE Wayne Thomas Batson's books, and so obviously I want to read those ones, and Bryan Davis is the master at coming up with intricate plots.
Aaaand, the last books of TWO SEPARATE WAYNE THOMAS BATSON (yes, I have to call him by his full name every time) TRILOGIES ARE OUT SO WOOOOOOOOOOOOOT!! I sense a lot of books will be under the Christmas tree this year. ;)
Well. I'm sure that's quite enough rambling for now. I have things to do, and hopefully reading will be one of them!
What books are in YOUR tbr pile?
