TBB becomes TBR

In an amazing turn of events I won a $50 Barnes & Noble Gift Card during the Romance Divas Divas Not Going To Conference Conference last week.

I know! I never win stuff. I also won the My Funny Valentine Anthology from fellow Diva author Kissa Starling which is next in line on my TBR pile. Color me tickled pink! I love to win stuff and I don't get to do it often enough.

I received the gift card the other day and I went shopping, but not until making a painstaking list of must have books. I figured I would go with Diva books since there are so many I would love to read. Here's what I finally eeked out of the $50.00 plus a few extra bucks to be donated by DH.


Mutants and Masterminds: Wild Cards - All-in Adventure Anthology: Wild Cards - All-in Adventure Anthology - this one's for DH. He's been a fan of the Wild Card series for decades now, and to be honest, writing fanfic in this universe was sort of where I got my start

Faefever (Fever Series #3) - by Karen Marie Moning - this is a pre-order for September 16th. I cannot wait! I've loved KMMs work since cracked open the first of her Highlander series. She is absolutely and without a doubt my favorite author ever. [She's not a Diva, as far as I know, but we'd love to have her!]

The Darkest Night (Lords of the Underworld Series #1) by Gena Showalter - hot paranormal romance. I can't resist.

Charmed & Dangerous by Candace Havens - more hot paranormal romance. Do you see a trend here?

Everybody Loves Evie by Beth Ciotta - I love Beth's stories! I'm reading Romancing the West right now, and even though I've never been big on western themed stories, I'm really enjoying it. Her first Evie book, won a Golden Leaf at NJRW and it was a wonderful read.

Now I just have to wait for UPS to deliver all the fun.

What about the two dozen or so books already in my towering TBR pile? Uh...um...don't worry. I'll get to them eventually.

Jennifer I was so glad you won a copy of My Funny Valentine. I didn't know you won a gift card also. That is sooo awesome. You should blog about all of those books you bought. I think the only one I've read of those is the one by Candace.

Happy Reading!
Kissa
