I read. I read a lot. I read anything and everything.
Well except for non-fiction. I’m not really into nonfiction, though I do read an occasional autobiography.
In a typical week, I read 4-6 books. Most of the time, I read a book a day.
However, since I’ve started writing and my editing has picked up, in the past month, I’ve probably read 7 books total.
My favorite genre of books is paranormal romance. And I’m addicted to YA fiction.
I write adult romance with erotic sex scenes, but my favorite books are young adult.
I also love New Adult/Contemporary.
I like reading sexy books.
Hell, I love everything.
Some of my favorite books and authors are all over the map. Everything from Gena Showalter‘s Lords of the Underworld Series, to Shelly Pratt‘s Ruined and Ruining Angel, to Richelle Mead‘s Vampire Academy and Bloodlines series’, to Nicole Deese‘s christian, clean Letting Go Series.
My absolute favorite author of all time is Nora Roberts. I would totally be the crazy, fan girl with her, and I rarely get crazy over anyone.
I’ve found some amazing Indie authors over the past year, and I’m lucky enough to actually call some of them friends. Most of their books are as different from me in writing style as it’s possible to be, but I love them. I love their work.
I’ve found books that I thought I would hate are some of my favorite reads. I’ve found that books that other people rave over, just leave me going, “Eh. What was all that hype about?”
No one’s taste in literature is the same.
Read often. Read everything. Read things you don’t think you’ll like. Be honest in reviews. Recommend books you’ve found to be hidden gems.
The main thing is just read… it’s like exercise for your brain.
I don’t even know what the point of this post is really, other than I’m tired of editing and needed a break.
Sometimes, I just need to get the random out to be able to focus.
I know… I’m strange.
