10 Books I Think You Should Read Right Now

I am an avid reader, for lack of a better phrase. I read 240 books in 2013. My goal for 2014 is 300, though that's definitely a stretch goal for me. I read 25 books in January of this year. I read all genres. I read new books. Old books. Self-published books. I follow series. I listen to audiobooks. I buy books. I have books sent to me as gifts. I occasionally receive books from publishers for reviews, (though I rarely accept them because I hate feeling like I am obligated to review them), but most of my books come from my library. I have a great library.

Since I do read so many books, of all different types, I thought it might be fun (and useful?) to share some that I think others might like to read. Some are by well-known authors, some are for kids or teens, some are non-fiction. I hope you find something of interest from this list of ten.

Welcome to my world and the reason why I've had to completely revamp my reading in bed criteria.   Read more >

Teen Reads Week: Why This Grownup Reads Young Adult Novels

I mean, I just like good books and a lot of these books, as QuentinFinch says, are simply just good. Isn't that reason enough? But as I kept talking to her that day as we ducked in and out of stores, I realized that it was more than that they were just good. I came to a conclusion much like Liz's - I like these books because while they often deal with topics every bit as gritty as much lauded literary fiction, they end differently.   Read more >
