Ok, I thought I would try something new and do a weekly post on my ever-growing TBR stacks. I think we all probably have these huge stacks of books lying around that “one of these days” we will read. I hope it is not just me anyways. I thought each week I would just pick a book or series and shed some light on them and why I got them to read in the first place. I hope everybody will share what they think and get me reading them or maybe stick them back in the TBR stack. Thanks everybody!
I will start off the first Thursday is Thor’s day (TITD) TBR with Theft of Swords (The Riyria Revelations #1-2) by Michael J. Sullivan. I bought this book Late last year. I have heard many great things about this series and this author. I started following Mr. Sullivan on various social media outlets and I admire his online presence. He always seems willing to interact with his fans and makes himself easily accessible. I chose this book for the first TITD post because this book is the book I would like to read most in my TBR stacks. I don’t know why I have not read this book yet. Every time I go to start it something seems to come up in my review schedule or my personal life. I will read this book soon and I am sure I will kick myself for waiting so long!
