what to read next?

Okay, so I finally finished Iris Johansen’s The Perfect Witness, which I swear I started reading by accident. img11  I was already a good stretch into another book, but happened to leave it well out of reach at a time when I really needed something to read.  The Perfect Witness happened to be on a stack of other books nearby, so I just grabbed it & read the first couple pages to keep myself occupied.  But I couldn’t just toss it back on the pile & walk away after that, could I?  Of course not—I had to keep reading to the end. img37

I also just finished Strictly Lonergan’s Business, the second book in Maureen Child’s “Summer of Secrets” Desire trilogy, & have begun the third & final installment, Satisfying Lonergan’s Honor.

But I’m still in the market for another book to start next, because I always try to juggle at least two at the same time. 

A lot (maybe even most) of my boxes of TBR books have already been taken to the new house, but I made a point of leaving a few behind.  Mostly random hardbacks that I’d like to get through sooner rather than later, anyway, so they can be donated to my local bookmobile &/or public library.  And yes, I’ll admit it:  I also sort of like the idea of being “forced” into reading some of these titles that I might not get around to for a very long time otherwise. img15

So…  Here are my current choices, & I’d love your input to help me decide which to pick up first!

Passions of a Wicked Earl by Lorraine Heath

Mad About the Duke by Elizabeth Boyle

Confessions of an Improper Bride by Jennifer Haymore

And the only non-Regency, non-historical…

Up Close and Personal by Carla Cassidy

Have you read any of these?  What did you think?

And even if you haven’t read any of them yet…which do you think I should start next?

Such a hard choice!  If I could, I’d read them all at once, I swear! img19

    I see crossroads and think supernatural. I have a problem. All of the books look good.. Which of the back blurbs hooked you most?

      LOL Me, too! (Crossroads Demon! Crossroads Demon! img24 )

      That’s my problem, too—they *all* sound good! I actually (accidentally img11 ) skimmed the Lorraine Heath one, & it sounds especially good…but now I’m afraid I’m too familiar with it to read it right away. img37

      Otherwise, I could close my eyes, reach out, start whichever one my hand landed on, & probably be happy…which is why I’m asking you guys for a bit of guidance! img42

    Ooh, I love when it’s time to choose a new book to read img44 I haven’t read any, but the first three sound right up my alley. Since you’ve already skimmed the Lorraine Heath one, I’d say go with that. Then you’ll get to explore in depth what sounded amazing when you skimmed it img20

      Me, too! Altho sometimes it’s so hard! Other times I know exactly what I want to read next.

      I *have* been leaning a little toward the Heath, but I’m afraid I know too much from my skimming. (I’m a really good skimmer, unfortunately. img37 ) But it did skim really well, so I think it’s going to be a great read! img15
