When I went home at lunch today, I found an unexpected package. Now I have to tell you, I absolutely love getting stuff in the mail (and by stuff I mean packages or real mail, not bills–no one likes bills). So when I saw my name on the front and a postmark from Germany, I got uber excited. One of my pals is there with her 14 month old son while her husband is stationed in Iraq. She was returning some books she’d borrowed from me and sending along a few more for my enjoyment. And what did she send me?
The first two books in The Black Dagger Brotherhood. Leslie and I had had a lengthy discussion about these books before they shipped out, and I thought she was going to pass out from shock that I hadn’t read them yet. They’re one of those things I’ve heard loads about and fully intend to read–at some point. But I’ve really focused on trying to spend my limited reading time on stuff that’s in my genre.
But now they’re here. In my house. On my coffee table. Calling my name.
So I’m going to set the other romantic suspense options I was about to begin (a Maggie Shayne and an Allison Brennan) back on the TBR pile to dive into J.R. Ward.
I know, I’m probably the absolute last person in the Western Hemisphere to read these books. But hey, better late than never.
What books have you heard lots about and keep meaning to get to but haven’t yet?
