With buying so many [soooooo many!] new books, it's sometimes hard to go back and revisit old books. Books that you adored and were swept away by. As you add more and more new and exciting authors to your TBR lists, more and more new series' it's easy to forget about those beloved stories that crept into your heart and took up residence.
A series that comes to mind is Chesapeake Bay - Nora Roberts. I was reminded of these just recently on Twitter. I chastise myself because how could i have forgotten The Quinn Brothers? As i've gushed before i love love love how Roberts writes about families, she speaks to the inner me who always wanted to be raised in a "Waltons" type invironment. With The Quinns you got 4 boys, all adopted brought into the House of Ray and Stella, living in a picturesque town by the water, a town that did get togethers on holidays, everyone knew everyone else. I seriously wanted to jump into the pages and be a Quinn!
These characters spoke to me, as most all of Roberts characters do. Each Brother so different but yet bonded as any blood family would be.
So what if i have a pile of new babies to read..it's good to give love to the old ones now and then too. I seriously need an extra 200 hours per day and/or a clone so i can enjoy all the reading i want if im ever to go back and re read all those old fantastic stories.
But for now i have a mission to put Chesapeake Bay series back into my TBR. Oh! and maybe the Three Sister island trilogy...and Gallaghers of Ardmore Trilogy, and then there's the Silhouette books by Wendy Rosnau [ Beneath the Silk,One way out, and Last man standing ] a must must must re read! And Sharon Sala [ Remember Me, Dark Water, The Perfect Lie, Out of the Dark, The way to Yesterday...to name a few! ] And how can i not re read any and all of Linda Howard or Johanna Lindsey?!
Gah! yes, im definitely putting in an order of an extra 200+ hours to the day!
