My Summer Reading List

So I've just finished up the edits for my February 2011 book The Unforgiven! It's the first book in my new urban fantasy series about the modern descendants of a tribe of fallen Biblical angels known as The Watchers.

With hardly a breath to spare, I'm now deep into Watchers book 2, The Unholy, which is set for a summer 2011 release. In the coming weeks, I'll begin talking about the series here on the blog and on my website,

But for the next couple of weeks - a break where I get to be a READER!!!! So what do writers read when they're not writing? Here's my summer reading list...

Of course, the latest releases from my friends at The Chatelaines! :-) That means Emily Bryan's Stroke of Genius, Allyson James' (aka Jennifer Ashley)'s Stormwalker, Cindy Holby's Breath of Heaven, and Gerri Russell's Seducing the Knight.

And then, to feed my Regency England addiction, Sally MacKenzie's The Naked Viscount and Mary Balogh's A Secret Affair.

And one oldie on the list - I've been wanting to read M.M. Kaye's The Far Pavilions for a while now. I have a growing fascination with India, a country which I know very little about. At nearly 1000 pages, it's been a little hard to grab this classic for a quick read in between everything else in my busy (insane) schedule! But with some down time from the job coming up, I've decided this is the summer to tackle it.

Oh, yeah, and that's my son's old Charmander on top of the stack. :-)

What's on everyone else's summer reading list??

Just finished Beast behaving badly by Shelly Laurenston and laughed out loud, now onto I'll be slaying you by Cynthia Eden and that's good too; next will be I hope Sizzling sixteen by Jane Evanovich. That's about it for now.

I have been waiting for Emily Bryan's STROKE OF GENIUS and hope to get to it. The other Chatelaine reads are all on my radar. FAR PAVILIONS has been on my shelf next to Diana Gabaldon's books. I want to read them and need such a large chunk of time to do it. This week I got Anna Campbell's MY RECKLESS SURRENDER, THE FORBIDDEN ROSE by Joanna Bourne, and BY FIRE, BY WATER by Mitchell James Kaplan. There are several by Julia Quinn I'd like to read. I have TORTURED, WILD HEART, and HAUNTING BEAUTY on my TBR shelf.
I have 40 full book shelves at my house and many, many more of them I would like to read. There are several series I am waiting to complete before i start them.
Enjoy your reading time.
