TBR Tuesday: the Fever series...

Before I get to this week's TBR, I just want to say that I just realized I forgot to post last week's Friday Face Off.  And though I do have one that is ready to go (and was ready for Friday...oops), since we're already 1/2 way through the week, I'm just going to hold off and give you an extra few days to vote on whether you like The Diamonds or Past Perfect more...

Now, on to the TBR ~

TBR Tuesday: Showcasing all the books that are currently staring at you from your "Why aren't you reading me?" pile....

On my TBR



Yeah.  Yeah, you read that right.  It's the whole Fever series on this week's TBR.  Well, not the whole series, as I don't own the last book, and have long since read the first.  And I don't need convinving this week either, it's just...

Ok, so the thing is ~ I read the first book in my book club.  Loved it.  Devoured it.  Muttered "Barrons" and "V'lane" under my breath for days.  I wanted to gobble up the rest of the books asap, and since this was around the time of the Borders closings, I figured I'd just snatch them all up and tear through.  Well, there was a hitch in the plan when I couldn't find books 2 or 5 anywhere.  And yes, I know I could have gotten them from the library, but I took it as a sign to wait. (Meaning I was being stubborn and was determined that I was going to find them.)  So instead, I put them on my wishlists and waited for a good copy to crop up, figuring I'd take that as my sign that it was time.  And one just did - Bloodfever, book 2, is now among it's brethren (sistren?) on my bookshelves.  And though I SHOULD BE READING FAIRY TALES right now, I just couldn't resist - I was home sick from work the other day, and I always take that as a sign* (meaning: excuse) to treat the day like a freebie and do what I want, so long as I'm able.  I figured, since it's a day I would have been spending at work anyway, I wouldn't have been getting any FTF reading done regardless, SO CLEARLY that meant I could read Bloodfever and mutter "Barrons" and "V'lane" to my hearts content.
So I did.
And now...
Now I want to tear through all the rest RIGHT NOW. I want to say "Eff FTF!" and go on a Fever binge.

So, I guess for this week's TBR, I don't so much need someone to tell me what they think of the books and where it should fall on my pile - I need someone to talk me down.  Tell me the books will always be there, and that they're not as smexy as I think they are going to be, so it really won't be too much to as to just wait on them until I'm through FTF (and Jane in June - so long!).
OR I need someone to be my enabler...

*You know, I'm not a superstitious person. Honest.

What's lurking in your TBR this week?


  1. I've never been one for pleasure deferral so I say...READ THEM QUICKLY! Then get back to the fairytales. Otherwise they'll be haunting you and you won't enjoy other books as much...maybe...keep telling yourself that x

  2. I never stick to the books I list as my TBR. Besides, you always enjoy books more when you get to sneak them in. It's like when you're a kid and thinking that you're pulling a fast one on your parents, it just makes it that much sweeter. With that having been said, READ THEM NOW! Enjoy. :]


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
