I Read Words Other People Write

UF, UF, UF. PNR, HR, Sci-Fi, finding a bit more YA that I enjoy. Mystery, crime, detective shit. Have recently figured out I'm not really a contemporary romance gal. I like smut but am not really into erotica. Oh, did I mention UF?

I've been in this reading slump...

Days of Blood & Starlight - Laini Taylor Dead Until Dark  - Charlaine Harris Immortal in Death (In Death, Book 3) - 'J. D. Robb', Nora Roberts

...and I'm slowly dragging myself out of it.  The only bad thing is I'm surrounded by library books ALL WITH DUE DATES and I can't bring myself to pick up any one of them!  I stare at the stack hoping one will jump out and say "read me, I'll make you laugh, I'll make you gasp, I'll make you cry!"  But, it doesn't happen, no matter how long I stare.  It's like when I stand at the open refrigerator hoping that fried chicken will somehow make itself known.  *sigh* it never does

 

I'll be starting Days of Blood & Starlight tonight (another library book with due date looming) even though I'm still in the midst of 3 other books I already own.  I loved the first in this series so I'm sure I'll get sucked in pretty quickly. But, on the other side of the ring is Dead Until Dark.  A book I own.  One of the first I bought for my Kindle but never got around to reading it.   I'm surprised by how much I'm liking the first of the Sookie Stackhouse series.  And I thought I wasn't interested in vampires anymore!  Ha!  *sticks tongue out at myself*

 

I'm really trying to NOT buy but 2-3 books a month since so much is available through my library, but then I have to keep myself on a tight reading schedule.  I don't like schedules. 

 

I did just finish Immortal in Death, the 3rd in J.D. Robb's Eve Dallas/In Death series.  Got that one from the library and it'll only be one day late when I return it tomorrow.  What a fantastic book.  I admire Eve and I lust Roarke.  A good mystery can pull anyone out of their reading slump (well, me anyway). 

 

So the question is - what kind of book gets you out of your reading slump?
