Why I Read
I’m a book freak, I love to read. I’ve been an avid reader since I was about 9 years old thanks to my mom who is a reader also, she always had a book with her. Mom started me reading Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys books on my own. Later in my teens, I started on the contemporary romance novels which have ruined me on real men, my book boyfriends will always be more romantic and when I’m tired I can close the book or stop reading no drama, sorry just a fact. I can not say that there is a genre of book out that I have not read and enjoyed well except real life crime, no thank you!
A little over 4 years ago I was diagnosed with a rare type of cancer, Carcinoid Neuroendocrine Tumors, they are a slow growing cancer that has made it so I’m unable to work due to the pain and how tired my body always is not to mention my constant need of a restroom, so to keep my brain occupied and not dwelling on my health issues or the amount of pain I’m in all the time, I started reading a lot more than I did from one to two books a week to sometimes one to two books a day. Then I started wanting to share the books I read with others!
I’ve left reviews and recommended books to others on Amazon and Goodreads, then in the beginning of November 2018 I started thinking about posting a blog of all the books I’ve read, if I’ve liked them, just a little review of sorts and the more I thought about it the more I wanted to do it, so here we are!
I need to mention again, I like all kinds of books, romance, mysteries, adventure, paranormal, suspense, spiritual, religious, comedies, young adult, historical, and others. (Some are explicit or graphic) .
I enjoy, single stand alone books, novellas, series doesn’t matter to me books open up my imagination and for the time I’m reading, I’m not stuck at home in pain, I’m in the book. If there are any books you don’t like or genres that you find offensive, I apologize in advance if you are offended, they are entertainment too me, they are not who I am as a person.
I do hope you enjoy my blog, the helpful information (if the is any), I’ve added a page about some of my favorite authors/writers, book reviews are the main posts or new books that are coming out. I just love reading, because my imagination brings the authors words to life in the most amazing ways.
Thank you and Happy Reading!
