Book Addiction and a few recommendations

I have this addiction called reading.  I would like to tell you that reading is my hobby but its more than that. Its my lifeblood. I am fully convinced any problem I am having can be resolved between two pages of a book. I love the smell of books, the crinkle of the paper, the feel of the book in my hand. I abuse my books and fold the corners and spines ands dig deep in a story.

I am also what someone would consider a speed reader. I can devour a book of 400 pages in a few hours time.

Now over the years I find myself getting attracted to genres. I have went through romance phases, biography phases, I once only read books that came out of Afghanistan for about 4 months. I love mysteries, scary books, young adult, and teen books. If a book as a good plot…. I am in! Now the past two years or so I have gotten into books that have at least 3 to the series. I like sticking with the same character for longer periods and because of this, I have been reading a ton of Twlightesque books, Hunger Games, dystopian society, Angels, Magic, and old realm knight fighting stuff.

It’s fun, it’s fantasy, it doesn’t have laundry to do or kids to keep quiet.

And while I read on average 15-20 books a month, I am not a book blogger. Ironic, right?

So here are a few of my favorites.

And a sneak peek at the top of my closet….

Wanna read any of these that I recommended?

Have a book you want to know about? Ask me! I may have read it.

 Have a book series you think I should be reading? Tell me in the comments!


Hi, y'all! If you got this far, awesome . I am assuming you want to know more about me. I am a *cough* 36 year old mom of 2 great kids, 6 rescue animals and proud wife of my high school sweetheart. This blog is my outlet and allows me to pretend I am a kid at heart. I get to play with glitter and glue, eat lots of sweets (its for the blog, I swear!) and connect with readers and friends. As a blogger I love to share with you- so the rundown is that I am currently reading this, using these for calmer bedtimes, giving away this, and suggesting here if you ever wanted to be a blogger yourself.

  1. PS – And you’ve read Divergent by Veronica Roth, right? That is a MUST. MUST.

  2. We could be twinsies in book taste. Seriously. Just finished reading The Girl of Fire and Thorns series by Rae Carson. It’s a really awesome young adult high fantasy series with a Latin feel to it. So, so good. And she’s apparently working on a new series about a girl who can divine gold during the California Gold Rush. Can’t freaking wait.

  3. Spirit Walk which is Walk of the Spirts and Shadow Mirror by RIchie Tankersley Cusick was really good. She also wrote the Unseen Series which i have not read yet.

  4. I would love to read your collection. I’ll trade you mine. My closet is full along with totes and all the book shelves. I carry three books in my purse. I just finished the Trylle series. It was really good! Now I’m looking for something else. I have to wait until payday though :(

  5. Who is the author on “Frozen”? I’m trying to find it on Amazon, but of course there are about 400 books with the same title!! :)

  6. I have a few favorites. Probably the top of my list is Nelson deMille’s John Corey series. It starts with Plum Island, but there are now six in that series. Anything by deMille is good, honestly. He writes action adventure/mystery from the perspective of an NYPD Detective, later it is more national scale events as he becomes a member of the Anti-Terrorism Task Force

    In another genre, Faye Kellerman’s Peter Decker/Rina Lazarus Decker books are great. That one starts with The Sacred Bath, but there are many. Another cop series, following LA detective and his courtship, then marriage to an Orthodox Jewish woman. Faith plays a big part of the earlier stories, and I’m fascinated.

    Clive Cussler writes action about Dirk Pitt, NUMA Oceangrapher/world traveler. It starts with Raise the Titanic and then goes from there.

    Marian Keyes writes chick lit, not necessarily romance. Her series is about the various members of the Walsh family (5 Irish siblings and their parents). Wacky, funny and sad have all played their parts. In order of events, Watermelon, Rachel’s Holiday, Angels, and the last in that series (so far) is Is Anybody Out There?, but I love all her writing-very witty.

    Katie MaCAlister has several series, but I like the one-off contemporary romances better. She writes great strong, sarcastic women!

  7. I’m in awe right now. I’m an avid reader as well, and you have me all giddy from the suggestions. Can I come over? lol

  8. You should have highlighted the Divergent series! Those are my favs since the Hunger Games. And lets not forget the Legend Novels…which Prodigy (book 2) came out today! Yay.

    Oh and my friend Dawn said the same thing about Shatter Me. I love that book too….number two comes out Feb. 5 called Unravel Me.

  9. LOL! Twilightesque!!! I am addicted to YA. Probably why I write it. But I’m like you, I go through phases.

    In the two years I’ve been in Miami, I’ve amassed two bookshelves full of books.


  10. I read a lot also and am always looking for new recommendations. Off to check some of these out!
