The Kiss of Death

Why is it as soon as I post a cover or covers to my currently reading section of the sidebar I completely lose interest in reading those books??

Picked up 3 more books yesterday. Figured I'd already completely blew this months book budget so what the heck.

  1. Wicked Under the Covers by Barbara Pierce--read this one last night, don't know why I picked this one over anything else on the TBR pile, it wasn't all that impressive even though RT gave it 4 1/2 stars. There's something very slimy about the whole thing. The heroine is seduced because her father dumps his mistress for a new one. Mom and Dad are bed hoppers but are horrified that their daughter is ruined. The only likeable characters in the whole book are the Maccus and Fayre, the hero and heroine--don't you love those names--NOT.
  2. The Rogue Report by Barbara Dawson Smith--BDS used to be a favorite, bought this one for old times sake, have no idea why.
  3. Tempting by Hope Tarr--I went looking for Hope Tarr's backlist, this was the only one the UBS had, but it's an autographed copy, how nice is that? Megan left a comment that it's a good one, so it's next up on the TBR pile. Note, I wont jinx it by posting it to the sidebar, hopefully I'll have it finished sometime today.

It's too hot to do anything besides swim and read, I guess I shouldn't complain to much.

Have a good one and happy reading.

The same thing happened to me. I started reading "The Reluctant Reformer" by Lynsay Sands. It started out good, but a little over 100 pages into it, I got bored. Although, it didn't help that I was surrounded by a lot of hounding about a certain hero (Derek) in a certain book, DoY.

Hope you find something that holds your attention. Nothing's worse than a book that can't hold your attention when all you really want to do is read.

Maybe the effort of posting the images into your sidebar takes too much energy? LOL

I don't know why this happens, but you're not alone. It's one of those weird truths of life, I guess. LOL!

Devonna, I'd give up a Lynsay Sands for DOY any day of the week.--LOL I still want to read the books, I'm just not in the mood for paranormal or a chick lit mystery.

Ames, maybe that's it and since I have dial-up it really is a project to load pictures.

Alyssa, isn't that funny, it must be one of lifes little ironies.

I'm the same way too. I'm very rarely reading the book that I say I am at the side. I plan on reading it - but then like you, I loose interest and pick up something else.
Wonder why that is? Must be the rebel in us - as soon as we say we are going to do something, we rebel and do something else :)
