It Was the Tequila Talking

It's funny but when I look at my bookshelf I see nothing to read.  It's sad too, because I've got lots and lots of unread books just waiting for me to read them, but for some reason I look at my shelf I think, 
"bleh, eh, meh

 I think I have the Bookshelf Blues.    

I wish I hadn't impulse bought so much.  I mean, I bought Shiver, (in hardcover no less!  Was I on pain meds?!) didn't read it, then Linger came out and I bought that too.  On Tuesday I decided I would finally read Shiver.  I got to about page 80 and gave up.  For me, it was HORRIBLE.  I hated every second I wasted reading it.  And then I looked and my copy of Linger that I knew I would never even bother opening it and I got really really sad.  It's really depressing chalking up seventeen bucks for a book that you don't even want to finish or a book that you don't even want to bother reading.  UGH.  I think my impulse buying days are over!  If I am unsure about a book, I'll get it from the library.

As far as my bookshelf goes, I think I'll read Pleasure Unbound by Larissa Ione.  Anybody read this series?

I feel your pain. I just bought 20 books from the Borders closing sale. I bought entire series that I know nothing about and will probably never get to because I already have a shelf LOADED with unread books.
I just read Pleasure Unbound. Not bad - I won't run out and read the others right away but it was OK. I'm kind of burned out on PNR genre at the moment.

Aw man, sounds like a reading slump :( For me, I think rereading old favorite books might help, but good luck =) I hope things go well with these dreaded Bookshelf Blues!
