Book worm

Books have always held a special place in my heart. I don’t remember when exactly I fell in love with them, I just know they’ve always been a big part of my life. I remember my mom reading me book after book when I was younger. {Followed by what I can only guess as at least an hour spent rubbing my back as I fell asleep. The woman has the patience of a saint.} I remember spending my summers in middle school reading as fast as I could. I’d go to the library and rent {is that what it’s called? It’s been YEARS since I’ve been.} as many books as I could carry on my way home. Most of the time I was on my bike so it was kind of difficult, but I was pretty good at no hands riding. 🙂

When I started this blog I wanted reading and reviews to be a big part of my content. It stopped being fulfilling because it was a one-way conversation. I felt like I was talking to the blank air and wasn’t sure anyone really cared. I’m also not sure I did a good job of explaining my raw feelings after finishing a book. When I finish a book, I usually want to start another one as soon as possible. At the same time, I like to “be” in the book for a day or two. I find if I start a new one too soon I find myself getting disappointed or mixing up the characters and settings. One of my biggest complaints when I finish a book is that I want MORE! That’s the sign of a good author, but I’m left aching for more. I want more of the characters and more of the plot! I love a good series but hate waiting a year for the next book. It’s always a pleasant surprise to find a series that’s already out there so I can breeze through them.

Recently, I was asked if I liked to read and if so what kind of books. I said suspense and mystery are good because they usually have a mix of romance and action. Here are my top authors: James Patterson, Iris Johansen, Janet Evanovich. There are a bunch of other author’s who I keep buying books from but I wouldn’t pass up a book from these top three.

Who are your favorite authors? Do you have a favorite book lately?

    I have always been a voracious reader. 🙂 I also love series of books. Do you like to read favorite books over and over again? I do, and my hubby thinks I’m weird. 🙂 Example: I have read the Harry Potter series probably at least 8+ times now. John Grisham books even more than that, each. I love to read a wide variety of books; fiction and nonfiction. Biographies every once in awhile.
