Maybe My Husband Was ... Was.... GULP

Ok. I'm going to say this only ONE time and then we'll never speak of it again. As much as I hate admitting it, my husband in this case was mumble mumble mumble. Phew I said it!! I didn't ? Well it's just so hard so left me see if I can say it again *whisper whisper whisper* You can't hear it? Fine!! I'll say it then. I, Book Snob, solemnly declare (and will NEVER speak it again or admit it from this moment on) that her husband was RIGHT!! Ugh, doesn't that leave a real yucky taste in your mouth? Anyway, my husband has always said "Well babe, I'm glad to see that you love books so much and I have no problem with you buying them but do you think you could maybe read the 300-400 books you already haven't read before you buy more?" To this I just roll my eyes (throwing in a snort for extra effect) and tell him that I have it all under control. HUMPH!! Tonight I realized ... I soooo don't have it under control.

I have spent the last 3 hours going back and forth trying to decide which of the 20 books I feel I need to read. I have them surrounding me right this moment and I'm confused. I posted on Twitter (www.twitter.com/thebookishsnob) that I'd chosen to continue reading the Raine Benares series (cos I'm having a hard time with the lack of follow through between lead characters - can they just have hot kisses/groping/bed action already? or at least once?) but now I'm looking at my Highlander series (Spell of the Highlander) and then at the new books I just bought. I look at my OVERABUNDANCE of books on my TBR bookshelves (yep it hasn't been a pile for a VERY long time and note the s meaning there is more than 1 shelf) and I see all the books I should be reading as well. So what the heck am I going to do? Do I read about the Fae? Vampires? Werewolves? Dark Hunters? Demons? Witches? Dragons?Sexy Highlanders? Regency? Queens in foreign lands? Games that go out of control? Ghosts? Warriors? Can you see why my mind is spinning? At this rate I will not be able to read at all and so I have to make a choice. Ok ... my final choice is this - I think I'll go back to my original choice and read The Raine Benares series. Pray for me because you've got to know I'll be reading it with my fingers, legs,toes, eyes crossed while frantically praying that sometime tonight I will read the toe curling kisses I adore. Oh and don't forget, what I said earlier - completely forgotten as though it was never spoken :P Yep, us women need to stick together.
