Reading is always a joy. I cannot help it. I get involved with the characters and the story line to the point that it is hard for me to put it down. If it is an exceptionally good book, then I am likely to skip going to bed at night. I constantly say I’m going to read just a couple more pages and then two hours later; I’m still turning the pages.

The Books I Love

reading joyI tend to read books on a certain theme and change it up every now and then. Meaning I’ll focus one month on romance novels, a month on the classics, a month or so on the horror stories, then sci-fi and fantasy. My favorite authors are also on my list and typically I’ll read them even if I’m not reading that theme at that moment.

Luckily, I have a lot of favorites to choose from. My most favorite stories are those that make me chuckle a little and those that delve really deep into the character’s personality. I love it when the characters are well developed individuals.

My Favorites

classic novelsWhen I was much younger, I’d always have a book in my backpack. I read mostly romance during that time. A favorite was those harlequin romance, but I also loved Judy Bloom, “Forever” to be exact. I read that at least 100 times. Yes, I was kind of pathetic.

Other older books that I love include anything by Janet Evonovich or Sandra Brown. Dean Koontz is another one that is great as is Nicholas Sparks. I personally say, movies are great, but if you are only watching movies instead of reading books by Sparks, you are missing out!

Newer books that I’ve read recently and enjoyed was The Bollywood Bride. The main character is truly something to enjoy. I found myself only wanting the best for her from the start of the story onward.

Happy Reading

I am sure I’m not the only obsessive reader out there. If you have a book that you love, please share it with me. If I haven’t read it yet, I will gladly do so in the near future. I am always looking for exciting things to read.
