Here it is folks, the annual “what I am reading” post. It is a summer of reading to be sure, and I am always excited to figure out what I am most in the mood for. I am habitual like most of us humans, so I have a pattern to my reading habits. As soon as the school year comes to a close you can always find me reading the latest Historical (Regency) Romance from a favorite author of mine (Gaelen Foley). This is my comfort food, and like comfort food, it is predictable and simple. It is a great way to decompress from all the work-stress that has built up over the school year. But after that, anything goes. I’ll read just about anything that moves me. Missing this year from the collection I have put together (see above) is poetry (!)…If any readers out there have some excellent recommendations, please do share. YA works are figuring prominently this summer (Wonder, Ninja Librarians, Curses & Smoke). But my favorite to represent is my friend’s just released memoir, Excavation. Go out and buy this must-read book. I warn you, though, it is not for the faint of heart.
If you are interested in a book oracle (of sorts) and are looking for something to read try this: What Should I Read Next. It works by you typing in a book you read recently and then it lists others that might be like it. It isn’t a complete database, but it is pretty good and can give you some ideas.
Enjoy the reading adventure!
