It really surprises me that I enjoy reading as much as I do. As a child my mother couldn't get me to read anything except teeny bopper magazines like Teen Beat, BOP, and Seventeen. Oh, and the occasional comics strip from the newspaper. I had read a lot but had never really enjoyed my books. That is until I was in my early 20's. Not sure what changed, I think it may be that I had experienced enough about life at that point to connect with the characters I was reading about.
Since it is one of my book devouring phases I thought I would share a few of my latest favorite reads:
Radical Homemakers: Reclaiming Domesticity from a Consumer Culture
By: Shannon Hayes
The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen
By: Syrie James
By: Justin Cronin
There you have it, a few of my recent reads. I jump around a bit in my page turning types. Keeps me on my toes, ha ha. I tend to always return to works about nineteenth century England though. I LOVE Austen inspired novels, so romantic!
What have you been reading recently?
au revoir, adieu, ciao, till next time...
