watch your step, please

Right now this blog is Under Construction. I don't know where I'm heading with it, but we'll end up someplace good (I hope). I also added some pages up at the top, things I'm interested in & deserve their own perma-homes.

-----------------------------------------------------

In 2008 I rediscovered my love of reading... because of Twilight... I know, of all things. All you avid readers out there can smack your heads, roll your eyes, and sigh disbelief now... Go on! Get it out of your system. Are you done now? Ok good. Moving on...

So in '08 I discovered the Twilight series. Loved it! After I consumed the last one, I was left thinking "now what am I going to do?" So I picked up another book, and another, and I kept reading. Some books I liked, some I forced myself to finish, and a couple are still sitting on the bookshelf with the bookmark somewhere in the middle. You know those books where you keep waiting for them to capture you? You just know it's coming, but then it doesn't? Yeah, I've had a couple of those. I won't name names unless you have to know. A friend of mine mentioned the Womens Murder Club books by James Patterson. That is typically not my style, but I really love these books! I enjoy the personal story lines told through each book.  Maybe series are my style now? Hmm...

I'm always looking for more suggestions, so definitely throw any my way! I am not tied to only reading fiction, I'll read anything.

While I haven't read Twilight, I also love to read series. I think b/c I don't have to keep wanting more b/c there's another book to read. Can't wait to see where your blog ends up!
