No way could I pass that up? I love books the way many women love jewels…or shoes. Give me books instead, any day! 🙂
I’m Nice Girl Ella Sheridan, by the way, here to share with you my very first A to Z blog post ever…
I’m in the middle of a final push to complete my latest book, and when I’m in that head space, the one that focuses on my own writing, I can’t really take the time to savor new books. But I’m too addicted to stop reading altogether! So I usually take these times to reread some of my “oldie but goodie” favorites. Those books on my keeper shelf that I have to have in paperback because I want to reread them over and over. I even have a few books from my early days of romance reading, titles that I picked up in my late teens and still reread to this day, some —- years later. (Did you catch that? Yeah, no way am I spilling my age!)
So what am I reading right now (or rather, rereading)? My current work-in-progress is a romantic suspense story. I typically avoid reading in the same genre as what I’m writing, so right now I’m rereading JR Ward‘s paranormal Black Dagger Brotherhood series. There are twelve books in the series (at least, that are on my shelves), and that gives me plenty of fodder for those nights when my brain needs a break and I want to lose myself in a good story. I’m working my way through book #8 right now, Lover Mine. If you aren’t familiar with this series, I highly recommend checking them out. These vampires will knock your socks off!
So what about you? Do you reread books, or are you a strictly one-and-done reader? What circumstances drive you to read old favorites — nostalgia, forgetting the plot, missing the characters? Share your experiences, and even your favorite “rereadable” books!
