I usually read the books that my children are interested in just to make sure that they don’t have content I wouldn’t want them to read. The trouble I have with reading is that I can’t stop at just the first book (if it is a series). These are some of my favorites: Children books- Fablehaven series by Brandon Mull, Charlie Bone series by Jenny Nimmo, Artemis Fowl series by Eoin Colfer, City of Ember books by Jeanne Duprau. Adult books- any Janette Oke books (I love pioneer books), Beverly Lewis-(all of her Amish books), My Bible (Troy just bought me a new study Bible KJV, it’s beautiful), and also anything written by Jane Austin.

I wanted to update this post. I have been reading more books this summer. Children’s books–The Sisters Grimm series by Michael Buckley. Adult books–Murder She Wrote series by Jessica Fletcher and Donald Bain. My all time favorite author would have to be Mary Higgins Clark. I have always had a deep affection for murder mysteries. The very first book I wrote was a murder mystery. (It is still sitting on the shelf.) It has a lot of problems, but also a lot of potential. Maybe someday I can rewrite it and have it published.

Like most women in the United States, I read the Twilight Saga, by Stephanie Meyer. I know, I’m an idiot. They were really sappy. I’m usually not a romance reader. In fact, almost never. I started reading them to see what all the hooplah was about. When I started reading, I had to finish, because that is how I am. When I got done, I asked myself why I wasted precious moments of my life reading them.
Well, I’m now reading Stephanie Meyer’s newest novel called, The Host. Again, I am asking myself why I’m reading it. It is taking forever to get into. I will finish it, though. (Again, this is how I am. I have to finish what I start.) I’m only a few chapters in. Maybe, it will get better. Everyone keeps assuring me that it will. Of course these are the same people that told me how wonderful the Twilight books were. UGH! Wish me luck.
