My Reading Vacation

A reading vacation.  What does it look like? Well… I really have no clue. Tis my first, and I’ve not read any books yet, soooo… I may be doing it wrong.

I have lots of books I want to read, I’ve even been chasing the shiny and running off to buy more books to read… cuuuuzzz… the 300 book TBR pile is clearly not big enough, I totes need more. I may have a slight book buying addiction. But, just a little one. Ok, maybe a big one, but… iz ok.

Time to buckle down, which, I'm not vera good at. so I thought I would make a list of the reading vacation plan. Or desires. Or… whatever.

Amara’s Reading Vacation of Awesome, in list form. :D

Free Me by Brita Addams

Description: Dr. Bryan Newcastle needs a respite from his grueling medical practice. He's looking for someone to free his mind and his body, to take him to unexplored sexual heights. So on impulse, he plunks down his credit card and commits himself to a Gay BDSM cruise he hopes will answer his prayers.

Muffled Drum by Estrates

DescriptionBohemia, 1866

They met in a port-side tavern, their lust-filled moments stolen from days of marching and madness. After eighteen months, Captain Rudolph von Ratzlaff and First Lieutenant Mathias Hofmann have decided to run away from everything they hold dear. Resigning their commissions is social suicide, but there's no other choice. Someone will eventually see Rudolph's partiality toward Mathias.

Now their plans have gone horribly awry... When Mathias goes to Rudolph's tent after their last battle, his lover looks at him without a hint of recognition. Mathias can hardly believe the man he knew is gone. He wants to fill in so many of Rudolph's missing memories, but the doctor says a shock could result in permanent damage. The pain of seeing Rudolph on a daily basis, when Rudolph doesn't remember their love, is excruciating. Now Mathias must decide whether he wants to fight for the man he loves or forget him completely...

Legends by Kalya Jameth

Description: Austin feels plain and maybe even a bit unattractive, seemingly unable to chose the right clothing and his hair a disaster. While Jack is always perfect. Sometimes this makes Austin feel unsure of himself and Jack’s affection.

Austin’s lover, Jack, is assertive and at times a bit domineering, especially in bed. This tendency in Jack, leaves Austin free to explore some aspects of his sexuality new to him. But how would he feel about sharing Jack with another man?

Intent on finding out and in the process give Jack a magical evening, Austin arranges to celebrate Jack’s birthday at the new concept restaurant Legends. He has heard a lot about what to expect of this exclusive establishment, but will Legends be everything that he hopes for?

The Replacement Guitarist By Lori Toland

Description: Blaze Shinozuka, a hot talent who auditions as a replacement guitarist for world famous pop star Cassie, is thrilled when he draws the attention of celebrity manager Jason Stockton-and not only because it could make his career. His instant attraction to Jason sends his world careening off its axis and drives him to make a move. But Jason reacts by trying to put distance between them, and Blaze finds himself thrust into the gritty world of rock 'n' roll while falling for a man he shouldn't touch, let alone love.

Straight-laced Jason Stockton is always professional and never dips his pen in the company ink. But there's something about Blaze that leaves him wanting what he shouldn't, and the guitarist's exotic beauty and compelling innocence turn out to be the temptation Jason can't resist. But just one lie in the national media sets off a chain of events that pushes Jason and Blaze apart. Can they find a way to be together in the cutthroat, jealous world of rock 'n' roll even after the music stops?

I wonder if that's too many. I hope not, because I also want to check out some books by JoAnne Soper-Cook, they look really good and read, well, all of Cat Grants books and… um…some Barbara Sheridan too, and.. and…

Hm. That seems like a lot. Especially since I wish to finish them before August. Why August you may ask? Well, I’ll tell you why…

Because, coming out in August is the next OMG I MUST HAVE THAT BOOK NOW AND JUMP AROUND AND UP AND DOWN AND, AND, AND…

Ok Amara… breathe… *tries to calm down a smidge*

*clears throat* What I mean is, that is when Dark Edge of Honor by Aleksandr Voinov and Rhianon Etzweiler comes out. I’m a tad bit excited. Just, ya know… a tad.

At the time of this posting, there are currently 32 days, 14 hours and 34minutes left until that book of the uberawesome get here.

Let the countdown begin.


That's all for me, for now... I'd best get to some reading.

Later taters!


  1. I may have a slight book buying addiction. But, just a little one. Ok, maybe a big one, but… iz ok.

    We should start a group for book addicts where we post when we buy more books and all the other members make rude remarks (and then proceed to be tempted by the book and go buy it themselves, creating a vicious cycle).

    Hope you enjoy your reading!

  2. LOL We totally should do that!

    Hi my name is Amara, and I have a book buying addiction...

    Thanks for coming by darlin'. Hope you're having a good week!
