I Luv Love Stories

By 4th March 2013 4 Comments

Happy New Month! (Papa Goo hates that btw)

Anyway, I’ve been out of touch. Know why?

I’ve been suffering from withdrawal. From what?

Romance novels.

If you take a look at what I’ve been reading since the beginning of the year…

It’s clear to see that I’ve been reading way too many romance novels. It made me realise that…

I’m Timi and I’m addicted to love stories.

There I said it.

But, I am master of my…wants and no matter how much I want to read a Sharon Shinn or (sob) Jude Devereaux novel, I won’t. Cos I…I need to open my mind and read some of the other wonderful stories in other wonderful genres out there.

Sob.

Even if I really don’t want to…

Right now, I’m struggling through

  • 26A by Diana Evans (Intriguing book. Slightly mental. Half of the time I’m like ‘what in the world am I reading?’)
  • Digital Fortress by Dan Brown (Mr. Larry Brooks of storyfix.com said read Dan Brown so I decided to start from his first book. There seems to be some sort of love story playing out so I am somewhat mollified)
  • How to read like a writer by Francine Prose (Yes, I’m still reading this…I’ve got nothing to say in my defense)
  • Earn what you’re worth by Nicole Williams (Currently stuck on a navel gazing exercise…no offense…)
  • Don Quixote by Miguel Cervantes (I’m actually enjoying this. Why am I not going through it faster? It’s no love story…)
  • Side Jobs by Jim Butcher (I can’t continue this until I read the next book, or books in the chronological order. Unfortunately, according to Wikipedia, Harry Dresden’s love interest does not return till Book 12…Why Mr. Butcher, why?)
  • The Mrs Club by Ekene Onu (Actually haven’t started this but I probably will tonight. It’s for the Unnamed Book Club so Yay!)
  • The Salmon of Doubt by Douglas Adams (Stephen Fry said to read this slowly in the foreword so that’s what I’m doing)
