I’m a reader. The picture above shows my “To Be Read” pile (with a cameo by Julia Chavez). It keeps growing! The books, not the cat.
I don’t know how I really got so into reading, but I remember vividly reading “To Kill a Mockingbird” in high school and LOVING it so much that I couldn’t wait to read more novels. As I’ve grown up, my tastes have changed. In high school and college, I was all about the Harlequin Suspense romance novels. Action and romance? Sign me up!
Now I find myself into a historical mystery rabbit hole. If it has a strong female detective character, a sort of helpful policeman character, and an exotic location (well, more exotic than Boston anyway), I’m in!
I’m also the type of person who reads about three books at a time. One real life book, and most likely one or two e-books on my Kindle Fire. I love my e-reader. I was one of those people who used to pack 3 to 5 books in my suitcase for a long weekend. Being able to now put them all in a small compact package? Yes please!
This site is just something to keep me busy and hopefully help others find some good book recommendations. I don’t read a ton of newer books, mostly older series and whatnot, but if I can introduce my friends/readers into a new series or genre, I think that’d be pretty cool.
