Reading and why I love it

I developed a love for reading at a young age.  It's like a safe haven, therapy.  I can sit in the house all alone and read for hours.  There was always one downfall.  I never had anyone other than my mom to discuss these books with.

 

So, about a year or so ago, I joined a local book club.  I must say I have thoroughly enjoyed it thus far.  Some of the books we have read I would have never selected on my own.  

 

I've always been more of the John Grisham, Stephen King, Sandra Brown, James Patterson, Douglas Preston type reader.  I have always tried to stay away from the more urban authors.  I was wrong.  There are some decent ones out there.  I've also learned like with anything, you can't saturate yourself with them.  It simply becomes too much.

 

With all that being said, I am excited to have another outlet, Booklikes to express my thoughts on the books I read.

 

Happy Reading!
