My Bookshelf
Tuesday, April 04, 2006
I promised Richard I'd try to curb my habit of buying books until I'd read at least half of those that are already on the "to be read" shelf. I trip into town yesterday made a complete mockery of any attempt to keep that promise. It's just too difficult when there are books leaping out at you from every crevice! Bookshops; charity shops; the market, they all had books crying out for me to buy them. I came home with seven new additions to the shelf - five brand new and two charity shop finds.

My "TBR" shelf now consists of, in no particular order:

1. Last Rights - Barbara Nadel
2. Under The Tuscan Sun - Frances Mayes
3. The Antonakos Marriage - Kate Walker (signed copy - won in competition!)
4. The Path of The Dead - Caroline Benton
5. The Spider's House - Sarah Diamond
6. Kiss & Tell - Cherry Adair
7. The Broken Gate - Anita Burgh
8. The Historian - Elizabeth Kostova
9. The Five Year Baby Secret - Liz Fielding
10. The Lady In The Van - Alan Bennett
11. Acid Row - Minette Walters
12. A Piece of Cake - Derek Robinson (re-read)
13. A Friend of The Family - Lisa Jewell
14. Archangel - Robert Harris
15. The Silence of The Lambs - Thomas Harris
16. Whip Hand - Dick Frances
17. The Wedlocked Wife - Maggie Cox
18. The Magic Cottage - James Herbert
19. The Last Family of England - Matt Haig
20. Marriage Reunited - Jessica Hart
21. By The Light of The Moon - Dean Koontz
22. Perfectly Pure & Good - Frances Fyfield
23. O'Reilly's Bride - Trish Wylie
24. Strictly Business - Liz Fielding/Penny Jordan/Hannah Bernard
25. An Expensive Place To Die - Len Deighton
26. Love You Madly - Alex George
27. Butterfly - Virginia Andrews
28. Light as a Feather - Helen Dunne
29. Pride & Prejudice - Jane Austen
30. Simply Divine - Wendy Holden
31. The Family - Anita Burgh
32. As Bad As Can Be - Kristin Hardy
33. My Canape Hell - Imogen Edwards-Jones
34. Victoria Line, Central Line - Maeve Binchy
35. Survival of The Fittest - Jonathan Kellerman
36. Moon - James Herbert
37. Still Thinking of You - Adele Parks
38. Make Us Traitors - Gilda O'Neil
39. No Gentleman - Andrea Young
40. Bad Boy - Olivia Goldsmith
41. Singing Bird - Roisin McAuley
42. Blind Date - Philippa Todd
43. I Remember You - Martin Edwards
44. September - Rosamunde Pilcher
45. The Smoke Jumper - Nicholas Evans
45. At The Villa of Reduced Circumstances - Alexander McCall Smith
46. Portugese Irregular Verbs - Alexander McCall Smith
47. The Finer Points of Sausage Dogs - Alexander McCall Smith
48. Misery - Stephen King (re-read)
49. Above Suspicion - Lynda Le Plante
50. Rebecca - Daphne du Maurier

No wonder he says "don't buy more books" every time I head into town!

At the moment I'm reading "A Wife on Paper" by Liz Fielding, which I have to admit I bought in a charity shop. Sorry, Liz! Which one will be the next to read is anybody's guest; I just dip in and bring out whatever takes my fancy at the time. Some have been on the shelf for a very long time without being read, but one day their turn will come.

As you can see, my taste in books spans everything from category romance to comedy and chick-lit, historical fiction, horror and crime thrillers. I don't get bored.

My favourite genre? I really couldn't say. There's something to be said for them all, but I do like a happy ending. Yes, even horror stories have them.
