So, you can see that I used to get a bit obsessed with authors once I read them (I practically grew up reading Enid Blyton). 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. 🙂
