Over the past few months I have acquired a new addiction, Reading. I just looked at my Goodreads profile and it has almost 100 books on it. Yes some of these books were from years ago when I read a book here and there but I think they still count. I started this addiction around the time when I finished my Bachelors degree, I figured I was already reading 50 page chapters each night so why not keep up habit.
One of my best childhood friends, Thanya, was the one who opened my imagination to reading. At first we started out with the usual Babysitters club and then worked our way up to, at that time, saucy V.C. Andrews series. After high school I got away from reading until I met my husband. He introduced me to the romantic and deadly world of Anne Rice and her Vampire chronicles. I moved onto the Harry Potter series as it was what my children were also reading.
I started attending school in 2009 and I had no time for leisurely reading, it was math, history, business writing, and then tons of technical computer reading. During my last few months of school I started hearing all this buzz about a series called “50 shades of Grey“. At that time I was doing my psychology electives so I had more down time. I read the whole series in 3 days and when it was over I felt a loss cause I was so consumed by the characters. I probably have read that series more than 10 times and yes that’s a bit much but I love Christian and Anna.
My addiction has taken over a good part of my days and nights. My friends and family have taken notice and started asking me about the books I have read or I am reading. So then I started becoming a book peddler by insisting others read the books that I love. My sisters are now becoming addicts and we frequently text or call each other yelling, crying, and/or laughing about a book.
We came up with the idea of a book blog after too much time on the phone and too many complaints from our husbands. We hope everyone enjoys our blog. Please feel free to also recommend books.
