I don’t know about anyone else out there, but I’m a complete bookworm.
Most of my friends like to go out to the bars or clubs on Friday and Saturday nights, some would like to binge watch Netflix with endless snacks, while I like to curl up in a room with cozy lighting, a cup of coffee or wine, depending on my mood, and a good book.
Am I weird because without the right lighting I just can’t get into reading?
I like all different genres of books – Romance, Nonfiction, Fiction, Sci-Fi, Fantasy (to certain limits…….), Self-Help, Adventure, Mystery, the list goes on.
Am I someone who has read every classic novel known to man like Moby Dick and anything Jane Austen? No… But I’ve read a few and I do value certain classics, for example, Catcher in the Rye.
I like current novels. Novels written in the last 5-10 years, maybe 20 years. One of my favorite authors is Elin Hilderbrand. She is a Massachusetts native author on the island of Nantucket. Majority of her stories are based on the island and her writing is so ecclectic and detailed, it pulls you right into the story. You feel like you’ve been to the island and experienced what it has to offer after reading one of her books.
I’ve read 11. I’d LOVE to meet her. She, to me, is a writing icon.
Another author I favorite is Danielle Steel. She has SO many books and short stories, a lot of them being New York Times Bestsellers. She, like Hilderbrand, draws you right into her storyline. Some of my favorite books by her are Blue, Fine Things, andCountry.
I thoroughly enjoy reading series as well. Debbie Macomber writes different series based upon different locations. The character list grows and thrives through the stories and I love getting caught up in them.
I am currently exploring a new series (sort of like Debbie Macomber’s) by JoAnn Ross. I’m enjoying what I’m reading so far, but I’m not completely immersed in the story like I am with many other books I’ve read. I don’t like to stop reading a book unless I’m absolutely dreading it, so I will finish and see how it goes!
