Even though I have so many books to get to on my own bookshelf, I went to the library to take a photo for the camera club’s theme of “pathways” because I feel books offer up pathways to the world; I ended up coming home with 3 books. Maybe after I’ve played catch up for a while after going so many years without making the time to read novels I’ll get to some newer titles- or at least throw some in now and then.
I just wanted to be home for all of March from grieving over the unexpected loss of our beloved Trinity and recovering from should surgery. I spent more time reading but as much as I wanted to really kick back and read, with my attention level after surgery I found it easier to binge watch Netflix. Now if Netflix would’ve just really sent me the DVD’s in the order they were in my list instead of skipping to a season we hadn’t gotten to yet that would’ve been even better. I wanted to try Audible but just never got around to figuring it out. I was content to zone out, watch TV with my hubby and love on Tyler.
For several years now, reading my Bible and just for fun novels has been a goal.
Up until this year though I’ve been reading mostly non-fiction books that applied to my work, and one CC Tillery novel each year as I designed the covers and they were released.
Since I think this is my first blog post on what I’m reading apart from cat books, let me start by saying what I like to read. If we don’t read the same kind of books my thoughts on what I like won’t apply to you. I tend to like thrillers, and authors like John Grisham, David Baldacci, and Greg Isles. I am not a re-reader. There are just too many books I want to read, to re-read a book. If a book takes the Lord’s name in vain I won’t finish it. Echos really bug me where they repeat the same phrase over and over. I don’t care for paranormal, sci-fi, books that tell me what to think or push an agenda, stories about rape, evil, or extreme violence, especially against children. For some reason, I’m okay with a storyline trying to find serial killers. Yeah I know, makes no sense.
