Winter Reading

I’ve been an avid reader since I was in elementary school.  My favorite books back then were The Little House on the Prairie series and Heidi.  Even after I began Junior High I would check those books out from the school library.  I was a dorky kid but those books were my friends and I loved re-reading them.

When I was an older teen, my sister Brenda got me hooked on Kathleen E. Woodiwiss novels.  Ashes in the Wind was her take on the classic Gone with the Wind but with a twist of course.  I owned several of her books from the book club (smile – get bunches of books for free and then pay thru the nose for the ones you have to buy to fulfill your agreement!).  I even chose my younger son’s name Brandon from her book The Flame and the Flower!

Historical romance fiction was the norm for me back then but I read so much I can’t recall all of the authors or their books.

About 15 years ago I stopped reading the historical romances.  Here’s a list of my favorite authors and books:

  • Nora Roberts (too many favorite books to list)

  • Charlaine Harris (Sookie Stackhouse Series, Aurora Teagarden Series, Harper Connelly Series and the Lily Bard Mystery Series) The Aurora Teagarden series is my favorite.

  • Debbie Macomber – A Turn in the Road, The Blossom Street series)

  • Laurell K. Hamilton (Anita Blake Series and Meredith Gentry Series)

  • Stephanie Meyer – Twilight series and The Host

  • Jennifer Crusie – The Cinderella Deal, many other good books

  • Susan Elizabeth Phillips – Ain’t She Sweet

  • Sophie Kinsella – Remember Me?

So this month I’ve been back to voracious reading on my Kindle.  I have a great selection of books available from the library and have been downloading a lot this month!

Here is my January book list – all re-reads:

The Hunger Games trilogy

Breaking Dawn

Real Murders: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery

Shakespeare’s Landlord (Lily Bard Mysteries, Book 1)

A Bone to Pick (Aurora Teagarden Mystery)

Three Bedrooms, One Corpse (Aurora Teagarden Mystery)

I also read one free download from Amazon that I reviewed here.

So what are you reading this month?
