Lesson learned: read what I want, even re-reads, when the mood strikes.Why do I always forget that lesson? Why do I cede control over what I read to my TBR list and end up stressed and overwhelmed by something (reading) that is meant to be relaxing and enjoyable? Is it just me?
I'm currently reading:
* Rapscallion (James McGee) [historical suspense]
* Warhost of Vastmark (Janny Wurts) [fantasy]
And waiting in the wings:
* Kushiel's Dart (Jacqueline Carey) [fantasy]
* Rosemary and Rue (Seanan McGuire) [urban fantasy]
In other words, I'm surrounded by books and feel like I'm drowning. I don't think it helps that everything I'm reading ATM seems to be fantasy - I think I need to shake things up a little. So, my cunning plan? To read something else entirely! Well, not exactly. I'm going to try and reach the end of the sixth chapter of Warhost of Vastmark by tomorrow, and then read the Whisper of Sin (Nalini Singh) and Here There Be Monsters (Meljean Brook) novellas from the Burning Up anthology. Then I'll go back to Rapscallion and Warhost of Vastmark and (hopefully) finish both. That will leave me with Kushiel's Dart, Rosemary & Rue, the remaining volumes in the Banana Fish (manga) series and The Secret Tunnel (James Lear) *dies* I think I just need to focus on one book at a time and ignore the rest or I will seriously panic.
So, do you ever panic over your TBR books?
