Books for the beach

Books that I might read while lounging on the beach:

The Betrayal by Pati Nagle:  fantasy, RWA book
Her One Desire by Kimberly Killion: historical, RWA book
Rescue Me by Christy Reece: romantic suspense/adventure, RWA book
Lord of Pleasure by Delilah Marvelle: historical, RWA book
Nightkeepers by Jessica Andersen:  paranormal, not a RWA book but picked up from HPB because I got the second book of the series at RWA and must read in order
Written on Your Skin by Meredith Duran: historical, not RWA book
Demon Bound by Meljean Brook: paranormal, pulled off the TBR pile
Mistress of the Art of Death by Arianna Franklin: mystery, pulled off the TBR pile A+
Packing the Heat by Penny McCall:  romantic suspense, RWA book (DNF)
Hill Country Christmas by Laurie Kingery:  historical inspiractional, RWA book  (DNF: characters blathering about god providing when the heroine is destitute hit a really sore spot for me; their attitude was, don’t you worry, honey, god will fix things and you’ll be taken care of.  Screw that — take care of yourself without expecting miracles.)

Also, I am a moron.  Bought a 1,000 piece puzzle of "Las Meninas" specifically to do while on vacation at the beach.  I’m at the beach.  Where is the puzzle?  On the table at home, where I left sitting out so I wouldn’t forget to pack it.  Dammit.

Also:  Dear Atlantic Ocean, I have missed you.  I never realize how much until I can smell the ocean air, then feel the sand under my feet and the shriek of gulls and pounding of waves.

  1. Ditto about the ocean. I’ve lived next to it (like, 5 minutes from the beach) my entire life, and I didn’t realise how much I was missing it when I lived in Nottingham. Here in Liverpool I’d have to take the train North to get to an actual beach, but at least I can hear the seagulls, and that makes all the difference.
    Love the idea about a Las Meninas puzzle. I love them, I recently bought this one: http://www.jigsawgallery.com/prodpics/R15778.jpg to make on the next rainy weekend.
