Right now I'm reading "True Believer" by Nicholas Sparks. I just finished "Sleeping with Strangers" by Eric Jerome Dickey.

Wish I had more time to read ...

Emma said...

I probably won't be able to read (unless it's for a cp) until after the new year. :( The life of a writer. Anywho. I have number 4 & 7. I am a big Lani Diane Rich fan. She has such an awesome voice and such wicked wit. Happy TT!

DD said...

I'm reading "the Kept Woman" - enjoying it. I see some good ones to put in my pile on your list - thanks!

Tempest Knight said...

I've not read any of these. I probably should check some of these out. :) Thanks for the heads up! Happy T13!

Jennifer McKenzie said...

I don't recognize any of these!! Which is awesome. I'm always looking for new stuff.
Thanks for the list!

Savannah Chase said...

GOOD LIST! I'm reading The Matchmaker by Jamie Denton right now. It's so creepy good...

Robin L. Rotham said...

LOL! I went from a list of books I'd read most of to a list of books I've read none of. I own number 13, though, and intend to read it one of these days. :D

Patricia W. said...

I haven't read the Maass book so you're not the only one. I'm putting in my 2008 list.

My copy of Camy's book is in the mail.

I'm reading Marriage at Circle M by Donna Alward. I love the Harlequin Romance line for its sweetness, brevity, and low prices! And I can read them without being pulled too far away mentally from my wip.

Kaige said...

I'm currently reading Jacquie D'Alessandro's Sleepless at Midnight. The Noah Lukeman books look interesting. Amazon and UPS love me. Thanks for the recommendations!

My TT's up at http://impulsivehearts.wordpress.com

I'm in the middle of Charlaine Harris's book All Together Dead.

Morgan St. John said...

Trouble in Paradise sounds fun! And Get out of that pit actually looks like a winner too and I stopped reading stuff like that years ago. I got bored...don't tell! LOL

Jane said...

Great list! I haven't read any of those either, but now I will. Thanks for the info :)

I haven't read any of these, though I have heard of a few. I'm currently working my way through Kay Hooper's backlist - midway through Out of the Shadows right now.

Gina Ardito said...

I love those Noah Lukeman books! I'm not much of a how-to gal, but for him, I make an exception. Right now I'm reading The Adultery Diet by Eva Cassady. Since I'm only 14 pages in, I'll reserve my opinion til a later date. :-)

Paige Tyler said...

Great list!

I'm reading something by Jo Beverley. Once again she chose a hero name that is just ridiculous, but I like her stories, so I go along with it. I can't remember the title, though, and I'm too lazy to go look. I just finished THE NAME OF THE WIND by Patrick Rothfuss, and it was EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT. If you like fantasy, READ THAT BOOK.

Great list. Next book I want to read is Red Storm by Zinnia Hope.
Happy T13!

"Writing the Breakout Novel by Donald Maass ** Yeah, I know I'm probably the only person who hadn't read this eons ago, but I'm a slow reader."

It's still on my list, too. To make things worse, I bought the workbook months ago. I keep "saving" it for something. Maybe it's time to crack it open.

Camy Tang said...

I'm glad you liked my book! I actually just started #4 on your list!
