May Re-reads

In my effort to thin out my books I am picking off my shelf the ones that I kept for re-reading purposes but have never actually re-read them.  And those that I have been keeping to read one more time before I give it to the UBS. So here is what I have pulled from the stacks this month.

Strip Search by Shelley Bradley (to UBS)
Dangerous Boys and Their Toy by Shayla Black (to UBS, mainly because of the cover)
The Winston Brothers (anthology) by Lori Foster (to UBS)
Wild by Lori Foster (to UBS)
Silent Confessions by Julie Kenner (to UBS)
On the Edge by Susan Kearney (to UBS)
Beyond the Edge by Susan Kearney (DNF the re-read) (to UBS)
To Trust a Wolf by Kate Steele
Beyond Innocence by Emma Holly (to UBS)

Some new May reads

Angel's Flight (Archangel anthology) by Nalini Singh

Seduce Me in Dreams by Jacqueline Frank
Seduce Me in Flames by Jacqueline Frank

Forget Me Not by Elizabeth Lowell (has been on my shelf for a loooong time) Did not realized I had not read it.  I enjoyed it but it will not be a keeper for me, so it is also going to the UBS.

The Duke's Perfect Bride (Cameron Brothers Book 4) by Jennifer Ashley  Love this quartet!

Heart of Darkness by Lauren Dane For some reason, I thought I had read this so had not picked it up.  Apparently I had not, so I am glad I grabbed it.  Thought it was very cool that the De la Vega cats and the Cascadia wolves were mentioned in this series so I may hope for some crossover later, maybe :)

Bear Meets Girl by Shelly Laurenston This series is so fun, the characters are just so over the top, it is very entertaining to read!

Celebrity in Death by JD Robb Good addition to the series.  So surprised that I am still loving it after all of this time and the amount of books in it.  Usually after about the 15th book I am looking for an end to it, but this one, not so much.  :)

Besides these i have a bunch of ebooks that I keep track of at Goodreads.

Some reads and Too many books

Fair Game (Alpha and Omega) by Patricia Briggs (A) - Great addition to the series, I LOVE her writing!!
Black Magic Woman (The Others series) by Christine Warren (DNF) - the heroine got on my nerves in the first 20 pages of the book so I put it down.  I will probably try it again, it was probably my state of mind but for now it is a DNF.

I have also been reading a slew of ebooks but I keep track of those over here at Goodreads.

Well, we are planning on moving this summer so I have to thin out my books. I do not want to pack up 6 full bookshelves worth of books.  I have already packed up two reusable bags worth of books to bring to my ubs.  These are books that I have had on my shelf for a while and keep putting off reading them in favor of another book, which is a good indication that I will probably never get to it or books that just aren't my style anymore.  I am also evaluating on the basis of my kids.  I have three little girls and they are growing quick.  You know I love my covers, but some are in no way for kids eyes so I need to get rid of those.  My oldest is now 10 and almost as tall as me, so putting them up high is not going to cut it anymore.
So my current project is to re-read a bunch of books that I have kept for years but have not re-read since I read them the first time to see if they really are keepers for me.  So I am going to have a re-reads list going in my posts until we move.
