Musing Mondays - April 6

Musing Mondays is hosted by Rebecca at Just One More Page. You can click on the link (or the picture) to see her blog and read everyone's Musing Monday post.

Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about your to be read list…

As a follow up to last week's question,
Joseph asked how you keep track of your tbr list. Do you have a paper list or on your computer? Do you take it with you when you go shopping? How do you decide what gets added to it?

I try to keep track of my tbr, but I'm not very good at it. I do what I can in Library Thing. I try to add books when I get them and sometime I make lists of what I want to read next. But then the rebel in me rebels and I read something else.

I definitely don't have a paper list and when I go shopping I just guess whether I have it or not. Usually I am right, but sometimes I am wrong too.

As to what I add to my TBR pile - pretty much anything that catches my eye. I try to get what I can at the library or PBS and then buy the rest. Blogging has definitely expanded my wish list (which I now store at Amazon and peruse before I book shop at my local store and also in Library Thing). I am adding many books each week.

Which do I read next - whatever screams the loudest to me at the moment or needs to be read for review or to return to the library.

Books Completed Last Week:
The Good Neighbor by Sharon Mignerey - Romantic Suspense - Love Inspired Suspense title - 4/5 - good quick read, love the small town everyone knows each other type books where the outsider is suspected. Review to come.
Who by Fire by Diana Spechler - Fiction - 4.5/5 - Wow - this was really good!
The Tenth Case by Joseph Teller - Suspense - 4.5/5 - great legal suspense, a little different than I'm used to but I really enjoyed it. Review to come.
The Sorority - Merilynn by Tamara Thorne - Horror - 4/5 - better than the first one - the story continues to develop. Review to come.
The Sorority - Samantha by Tamara Thorne - Horror - 3.5/5 - The story concludes - good trilogy - this one was a little more of a letdown than the second, but still a good quick fun read. Review to come.

Reading Now:

Handle With Care by Jodi Picoult - Fiction - audiobook - I am loving this - I'm down to the last few hours - should finish this week
Isolation by Travis Thrasher - Christian Suspense - this is very interesting so far - I didn't want to put it down last night. Kind of The Shining-ish mixed with Frank Peretti. Lots of suspense and a cool huge house.
Where the Heart Cries by Cindy Woodsmall - Fiction - I'm only a few pages in, but enjoying it so far.

At the Edge by Cait London - Romantic Suspense
The Hour I First Believed by Wally Lamb - Fiction
Seven up by Janet Evanovich - Mystery

It was another busy weekend, that will start to calm down in the next few weeks, after baseball, Easter and camp-outs. I'm looking forward to a Saturday at home soon where I can layout and enjoy the sun and read!
