Hello and welcome!

Welcome to the many rantings of this reading addict.  I spend every spare second I have engrossed in books.  Mainly on my kindle.  Kindles make reading at stop lights much easier because I'm not flicking back through pages at each stop finding my place.  I'm sure that is probably not the best thing to admit to, but I guess it is evidence of my addiction.

I tend to go through streaks of reading different genres, but the most recent fascination of mine has been urban fantasy and paranormal romance.  I kind of came into this genre slowly.  I started with mysteries, then ended up with Kay Hooper's Bishop series where the characters all possessed some kind of psychic skill. 

From there I wanted more "other" and found Kim Harrison's Rachel Morgan series.  From there my mind has been full of vamps, weres, shifters and demons.  Now I like to mix more romance with the paranormal, but as long as it has weres and vamps in it, I will probably read it.

I do have a series that I can't help myself from reading. Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series is my light read. She makes me laugh. Especially Lula. I think it was Finger Lickin' Fifteen that had Lula in a yellow and black outfit.  I was in the middle of the scene with her in that outfit while trying to work out on the treadmill and I thought my worst gym nightmare was going to come true.  I almost fell off the damn thing.  I was laughing so hard and trying to hold on, I bet I looked like a fool.

I would like to use my blog to review the books I read as well as generate conversation about them.  I don't know many people who read in the same genre as me, so I don't get to revel in the aftermath of a good book with someone who understands just how wonderful the story was.  Or on the flip side of that, someone to debate the plot lines.

I might get two books in a week and like to talk about what I read in between so please join in and lets savor these works of art the authors give us to enjoy!


  1. Congrats on creating a blog! I love your layout! And I have to agree with you about the Kindle. It makes things so much easier! Although, I haven't been reading mine at stop lights... mainly because I run them too much to actually stop lol. Can't wait to see more of your reviews!
