I am very excited that our topic today is about the books on our to-be-read shelf. For the last two months, I haven't been able to read fiction because I've been so focused on finishing my book, A BREATH OF MAGIC. When I'm that deep into one of my own stories, reading fiction can hurt my forward motion, so I try to stick to TV shows and non-fiction.

But, I turned in A BREATH OF MAGIC today, so that means I can read as many of the lovely books in my to-be-read pile as possible over my two-week break. First on my list?

Lisa's book, of course. I've been dying to read WHISTLIN' DIXIE IN A NOR'EASTER forever. And ever. And now, I can!

Then, I'll be moving on to:

  • La Vida Vampire by Nancy Haddock
  • An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon
  • The Neighbor by Lisa Gardner

I have plenty of other books waiting to be read, including several Jude Deveraux titles, but the above four are on my must-read-as-soon-as-possible list. First, though, I have to clean up my after-meeting-deadline house, and finish the memoir (Melissa Gilbert's) I've been reading the last couple of weeks.

Oh, did I mention I turned my book in today? Yes? Cheer with me, please! A BREATH OF MAGIC was a difficult story to write, and there were times in the process I wondered if I'd ever actually finish. But now, after I've written and edited and polished and turned the sucker in, I realize it's very likely the best, most emotionally profound, story I've ever told.

I can't wait to see what others think.

Hope you all have a great day! And I'd love to hear what's on YOUR to-be-read list.
