speaking of reading

Not that I was actually speaking of it, but I have faint ambitions of actually re-reading TIGANA this month (technically it was April’s book and I should be reading A SONG FOR ARBONNE this month, but, er, it didn’t work that way :)) just in case anybody wants to do my lurching read-along on that book.

Ted just finished reading Marion G Harmon‘s Wearing the Cape series, which he’s enjoyed very much, so I gotta put those on my reading list. Which I should update, to keep me honest. Although frankly I’m doing a *terrible* job of not buying new books and just reading the ones I’ve got. I’ve read, according to Goodreads, 34 books this year, and…2 of them…are on the list behind the cut. o.o

(*checks* 11 of them are re-reads, 3 are books I was given for blurbing and the rest, um. Are new. Heh. Right. Let’s give that “no buying new books” thing another whirl, eh…?)

TBR shelf that, um, needs updating (but has been alphabetized!) behind the cut…

  1. Just to make sure… you’ve already gotten (or already pre-ordered) a copy of Jim Butcher’s “Skin Game” which comes out in a couple of weeks, right? Before you go back on the “no new books” wagon? Although I’m not sure what the release date is in Ireland.


    1. I’m, uh, hopelessly behind, on Jim’s books. Like, the last one I read was a draft copy of SUMMER KNIGHT…


  2. Hey! Is your goodreads public? My user name is rainandroses if you want to add me as a friend. not that I’m reading much new, but I’d love to keep up on what you’re reading. Some of my favorite audiobooks come from what you’ve reviewed (ie, Tiagana)

    Oh, and happy mother’s day!


    1. Yep, I’m ce_murphy over there as an author page. I just sent you a friend request! And Happy Mother’s Day to you too!


  3. I am just finishing the third of kate Elliot’ series… cold magic. I think its one of those love it or hate it kind of books…can’t wait til you get there! Kristen Britain’s Green Rider series is pretty good to while I sit waiting for the Shaman to Rise!
