That Dreaded TBR #29

I can’t believe I’ve done 29 of these. And with…a stupid amount of books on my TBR, it’ll be a long time before I’m actually done with it. Which is good, because I do enjoy going back through the books I was interested in and seeing if my tastes have shifted away. In a lot of cases they have, but I think today might prove to be a bit more difficult. We’re still in August 2013, and it looks like at that time, I was looking out for books that were next in some series’…

The Vampire Armand – Anne Rice

Now at number 69 on the list, The Vampire Armand. This is on there because I read up to book 5 in the series, then never…picked this one up. I really should! And I want to. I definitely liked the first 5 enough, though I am considering giving them a reread before continuing on. This is definitely one I still want to read.

The Witching Hour – Anne Rice

I do want to read this, but I think it’s going to take me a long while to get to it. For starters, I would rather focus on the vampire series first, then move to another. I think, too, whereas with The Vampire Armand it’s useful having it on my Want to Read, as it lets me see where I am with the series, I don’t necessarily need this on my Want to Read to keep track of the fact that yes, I do want to read it. Eventually.

The Stephen King Universe: A Guide to the Worlds of the King of Horror – Stanley Wiater, Christopher Golden, Hank Wagner

Stephen King and Anne Rice probably formed my love of horror in books. I’d read horror before picking either of them up, but I read both in my teen years and it was their works which really stuck with me. Since then, I have read A LOT of Stephen King, and though this won’t include pretty much anything King has released in the 21st Century, I do like books like these, and I think I’d still find it worthwhile to read this one.

The Graveyard Book – Neil Gaiman

I know instantly I still want to read this. I’ve only ever heard good things about, and I do like Gaiman’s writing. He has a way of capturing whimsey and tying it up with darkness. This is definitely staying on the list, and I’m pretty sure I have a copy around here somewhere, so hopefully I can get to it soon.

Anansi Boys – Neil Gaiman

Again, I like Gaiman, and I did like American Gods, and I definitely still do want to read this one. There’s a lot of Gaiman’s books I haven’t got round to yet, but also a lot I have, and I have faith I’d enjoy this. I think this one has to got to stay.

Status: Keep

So there we have! Only 1 book removed this time, but that’s mainly because of the familiar names in these five. If I hadn’t read Gaiman before, I probably would have taken his books off. Maybe next time we remove some more!
