Take a look...its in a book....

When I do have free time one of my favorite things to do is read. I absolutely LOVE books and have shared this passion since I was a little kid. When I was younger my mother would take us to the library every week and I can remember being smaller than the stacks of books I would carry out. To this day the librarians in my hometown still know our whole family, because we are such big readers.
It boggles my mind when people say "Oh I don't like reading" (side eye to the BF) There is just something magical about getting lost in a story, creating your own movie in your head and falling in love with the characters and story.

I usually read easy breezy chic lit books (I do enough hard reading for school). I think it started with reading Helen Fielding’s “Bridget Jones Diary”, and then I was on a search to find similar authors. In my search I fell head over heels in love with three particular authors. I own every book they have written, because they are just fun stories to enjoy.


(Her books are so much better than the movie was!!!!)

I wouldn't be able to tell you a favorite from any of these authors, because all of their books are great to me. If your looking for something light-hearted and easy, I highly recommend checking out a selection on their lists.

Now for all you "Twilight" and "Tru Blood" lovers out there, here is something for you. I came across this series of books almost 3 years ago (way before the Vampire craze was cool…Dare to be original!!) and have not put them down. I purely picked up the first one because I thought the book cover was cute (yes, I do judge books by their cover) but the stories were so funny It was easy to be addicted. The only way to describe this series is Elle Woods becomes the Vampire queen...LOL

I was a little peeved, because they changed the cover style a few books back from this

to this

( I would like to bop who ever was in charge of this move!!!)

The author MaryJanice Davidson writes a lot of “sci-fi romance” books. Her stories include werewolves, mermaids and androids just to name a few. I have a few of the other series, but none of them have captured me like the undead series.

If you do read any of them, please let me know what you think. I would also love to know what your reading I am always eager to add new authors to my ever growing reading list!!

  7. Another book (and Twilight!) fan over here!! :D

    I LOVE to read since I was a little girl too. It used to be fiction (romance) then slowly it became more of the non-fiction types..new age, self-help, etc. Everywhere I go, I carry a book in my bag. I read in the bathroom too!

    Yes you guessed it, I was pointing my finger right at you when I mentioned HELLO KITTY in my blog. HAHA. Your prize of getting it right? A HELLO KITTY red packet flying your way! haha.

    Pls email your address to info@mydollgift.com ;)
