It’s All About the Books
It’s great to be at the Book Tree today. Yes, it’s great to be here—and to be talking books!
Oh, books, my life-long love. My bookshelves are currently overflowing, but I am eager to grab more new releases. My favorite genre of choice is romance. I figure there is so much negativity already out there in the world—well, I want a guaranteed happy ending when I read. And romances give me that guarantee.
Within the romance sub-genre, I have two favorite areas for reading pleasure: romantic suspense novels and paranormal romances. While I like my happy endings, I also like a dark and gritty read. I like stories that take me in deep. Stories that grab hold of me and just won’t let go.
Some of my favorite romantic suspense authors are: Anne Stuart, Shannon McKenna, and Linda Howard. These ladies balance suspense and sensuality so well in their stories. How could I not be hooked?
When it comes to paranormal romance, I am a huge fan of Larissa Ione’s Demonica series. A powerful supernatural world, characters with painful histories, and a romance that just won’t quit—great stories. I also adore Kresley Cole’s Immortals After Dark, Jayne Castle’s fantastic futuristics, and Sherrilyn Kenyon’s sexy Dark Hunters. Oh, I could go on listing books for hours.
My to-be-read stack is currently about two feet high, but, I am afraid that I’ve been making that stack wait lately. Sure, those new titles do tempt me. But, often, something else tempts me more. You see, I’m a re-reader. A very avid re-reader. I keep my favorite books, and as the fancy strikes me, I pull them off the shelves and read them again and again. That would be why my copy of Linda Howard’s Dream Man (a nice blend of paranormal and suspense) is so dog-eared!
But what about you? Are there other re-readers out there? Or are you a one-book-one-time reader? And which authors are your favorites?
Thanks for taking the time to read my post. Have a good day and happy reading!
