Question...

“How many books are currently in your To-Be-Read (TBR) Pile?”

 Oh, lord. Too Many. Let's see, according to goodreads, 672. Yikes.


  I also participate in Follow Friday, so those of you who popped by from that, thank you - and thank you parajunkee for hosting it!     



This Week's Follow Friday Question is..

Genre Wars! What's your favorite genre and which book in that genre made it your favorite?

Well, my favorite genre would have to  be Urban Fantasy (Adult & YA). I would say that Moon Called by Patricia Briggs and Spider's Bite by Jennifer Estep inspired my love for that particular genre (at least the adult UF) . I read both of those books at the same time and immeidatley had to go out and find more like them. So thanks Patricia & Jennifer!

Hi
Following through from Parajunkee's. UF is one of my favs as well - Laurell K Hamiltons Anita Blake and Merry Gentry series and Ilona Andrews Kate Daniels series

EEE I spy another paranormal/urban fantasy junkie! I tend to gravitate a bit more towards paranormal romance, but I'm positively in LOVE with Holly Black and Cassandra Clare.

Thank you for the suggestion to read Moon Called and Spider's Bite. I've been eying those for a while, but never had time to pick them up. If you say they were the books that got you hooked, then they must be pretty epic.

I need to read more books in that genre. I'm not that familiar with it.

ohhhh... I didn't know these book were out there. Curse my inability to browse the adult section. I love YA too much. But I've decided to wade in new waters.

Urban fantasy is definitely a favourite of mine. I was a little indecisive when answer. Great answer.

I have way too many books on my TBR list and TBR pile. All told that comes to about sixty books.

Now here's the scary math: I read roughly one book per week - and sometimes two. But two to three books are being added to my TBR list every week.

Stressful, right?

Wrong!

Hop on over to my blog - http://www.howardsherman.net and find out why.

I also have an uncontrollable TBR pile, with the numbers reaching the mid-four hundreds. I've had to remove the wish-list books to get my TBR pile out of the thousands.
