You can also see that I have read some series books just because they were addictive (Babysitter’s club. Cringe!).  I also have a soft corner for mysteries. Love reading about women too. Mostly though, you can see my overwhelming love for books. 🙂

Obsessed with books? Have a recommendation? Want to discuss a book from the above list? Feel free to leave a comment!
