I don't know about you, but I get on certain genre kicks when I read. Like right now I am reading a Stephen King book. And I am looking forward to reading another Stephen King when I'm done with that, And maybe even after that. Mr. King pulls you in and makes you want to stay awhile.
But before reaching for a Stephen King novel, I was incessantly reading anything by Colleen Hoover or Abbi Glines - I love their young adult stories that aren't really young adult topics at all. They make me laugh and cry and feel like I'm back in those ever-changing teenage years. But in the end, Ms. Hoover and Ms. Glines give me a story that makes me feel good. And that stays with me a long time.
Then there is my walk through Cowboy Heaven when I read Kathleen Ball's western romances. When I'm reading Ms. Ball's novels, I want to go buy a horse, hop on, and go find myself a cowboy. And with Kathleen Ball's novels, I get the Happily Ever After ending I so desire.
Sometimes I'll hop on the historical romance bandwagon and read myself some Jude Deveraux or Amber Dane. I love escaping back in time to an era I had never known. In my mind I put on my corset and gown, and wait for my medieval knight to return home to me.
Then of course there are the popular BDSM novels - anyone ever of heard of E.L. James and Sylvia Day?
But my favorite genre to read is Young Adult Paranormal. I love Twilight. It will always be my favorite paranormal series. I adore Lauren Kate and her Fallen series. Another of my favorites is Laurie Faria Stolarz' Touch series. Alyson Noel and Aprilynne Pike and Stefan Ellery are more of my favorites too.
So that's my story.
What about you? WHAT DO YOU ENJOY READING? I'd love to know.
