I was having a bit of blogger block last night, when I typically write my posts, and first thing this morning, the other thing I usually blog. I was on a walk with Colby and was just letting my mind wander. And this popped into my brain... don't ask me why or how, but it just did!
I am an avid reader and have been since I was a child. You can almost always find a book sitting on my nightstand, unless it had been moved in the day for a few minutes of reading time. I find that I can't settle at night until I've read at least 1 chapter of my book.
Over the years I have read a variety of types of books. I tend to find an author and read many of their books and then move on to another author. I tend to lean toward romantic and mystery books. I don't like smutty romance or gory mystery, but ones with a good story line.
At this time, I am big into reading authors who write book series. I hate when I get to the end of a book that I've been engrossed and and then feel like... what happened next? I find that when authors write at least a trilogy for a series I enjoy it a lot more.
My authors of choice right now are: JD Robb, David Balducci, Debbie Macomber, Nicholas Sparks and Adriana Trigiani.
I am reading a book by a new author, well new to me, I am really enjoying this one too. I think I'll have to pick up at least one more by her before I decide to include her in my list of author. The book I am reading right now is Between Sisters, by Kristin Hannah.
Are you an avid reader? What kind of books do you like to read? What are you reading now?
