24 Thoughts

  1. I am SO far behind. If I don’t get the ARC I simply don’t get to the book. sigh

  2. I read 6, have two others physically in my house! Here’s to another great year!

  3. I’ve read a few but want to read them all! So many books – so little time. On top of that the older you get, even retired, there seems to be so little time or that time goes by in a flash. However, I will get to them all – eventually. 🙂

    1. I’ve heard that same thing from retired friends. Time management seems elusive at every stage in life! Good thing we have books as a distraction!

  4. You are all certainly busy and focused! Thank you for the list. I need lists to remind me what I have and haven’t read. And love them for introducing me to others!

  5. An impressive body of work, ladies!

    I’ve only read one, so far. It seems so much harder to read all the books these days–are there more being published, or do I just know more about how many are coming out every year? So many good stories to read!

    Happy New Year, Wickeds. Wishing you all an equally (or more) productive 2018.

    1. Thanks so much, Karen! There are more books being self-published but I think the numbers of traditionally published books remain relatively stable. So, if you are looking for books at online retailers there are an overwhelming number from which to choose. If you shop at local brick and mortar stores it may be that you are just well informed!

  6. I’ve read a bunch of them and the rest are on my TBR list. As others have pointed out, being retired somehow leaves me less time to read. I guess it comes back to if you want something done, ask a busy person. I’m always busy! Thank you all for giving us such great entertainment.

  7. I have purchased and read Sherry and Shelia’s books. There are so many new books both fiction and nonfiction that we have available to us at our public library and only so many hours in the day even when a person is retired. I do want to read more Wicked authors in 2018 and have set that as a goal. Please keep writing….all of you!!!
