In case you didn’t know, when I’m not on the computer, running, or exercising my jaw by running my mouth, I LOVE to read. As is, I always have a book in my hand or on my Kindle app on my phone. I probably read more than most people, especially now that I am at home more. I told you before about the awesome parenting book that I read (1-2-3 Magic), and the truth is, it will always be one of my favorites, because it really did change my life. But what do you read when you just want something to read and to escape?
My personal favorite is Nicholas Sparks. I love the man. He does no wrong. His books are absolute genius and I get sucked in to each and every one of them. I probably hate every one of the movies that have been made based on his books with exception of The Notebook and Message in a Bottle. I cannot figure out how Hollywood always fails to get it right. They’re beautiful stories, and each one of them is completely destroyed when brought to the big screen. Yet, I still go watch each and every one of them in theaters. Don’t judge me. 😉
The boyfriend SWEARS by The Wheel Of Time series. This will be my next adventure… If it is anything at all like he says, I guess I’ll be just as hooked on it as he is. I need to see if it is available on Kindle so that I don’t have to worry about stealing his precious books. Yes, he’s worse about them than I am about my autographed collection of Nicholas Sparks novels. The only thing I can say to that is if he is that obsessive, something about them must be good.
What about you? Is there a series of books that you just can’t wait to read the next one? A particular author that you love? Or just ONE book that you could read over and over and over again? I would love to hear about it!
I’ll see you all tomorrow, I’m off to read Hands Free Mama: A Guide to Putting Down the Phone, Burning the To-Do List, and Letting Go of Perfection to Grasp What Really Matters!
