Well, wasn’t that a lovely self-pitying post yesterday? On to brighter things today…books.
I’ve been reading voraciously ever since I joined the library this past summer. I read anywhere from 8 to 10 books a month. My problem is that I find an author and then read everything I can by them. While this usually gives me a lot to read, it also keeps me pretty limited in what I read. I know I’m missing out on some gems.
Everything I’ve read lately is good (Nora Roberts, Iris Johansen, Jodi Picoult, Jeffrey Deaver, & James Patterson off the top of my bed)- but nothing has sucked me and held me by the throat. I want to read a book that I can’t put down. A book that begs me to steal snatches of time to read it- while I should be cooking or sleeping or, yes, even playing with the kids. The last series of books to do that was The Hunger Games- I read all three books in 5 days.
I’ll read just about any genre- historical, sci-fi, chick lit, dystopian, mystery. So please, hit me with your best recommendations!
