To Be Read...

Confession (and what better place to confess than here with the Sleuths): I haven't been reading much lately! I know, it's a crime!

I'm not a particularly fast reader to begin with, but can usually average 3-4 books a month. Now that my debut novel FAKE ID is out in the world, and I'm busy drafting my next mystery/thriller, ENDANGERED, I find my reading time has decreased significantly. Here's the problem, though. Less time doesn't mean less books. I'm still keeping track of what's debuting, still buying obsessively (I'm so bad, I bought a book I already had a copy of last week). The book stacks in my office are, literally, climbing the walls.

So, I'm here to share my pain and bare my soul. Here's what I have waiting for me when I get some downtime:

The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

It's been billed as Criminal Minds for teens. Well, okay then.

Nearly Gone by Elle Cosimano

Technically it's on pre-order, but it's Fringe meets Bones, y'all! You know this is going in the stack. (NOTE: I'm not just plugging this because Elle's a Sleuth...this book is getting serious buzz, and I can't wait to read it.)

Unremembered by Jessica Brody

Plane crash. Lone survivor. Manipulated memories. Sold.

I could go on. But, with all these great books to choose from, the toughest mystery to solve will be which one I get to first!

What say you out there in Sleuthland? Anything extra enticing in your stacks?
