Happy Tuesday everyone. I hope the week has been kind to you so far. This week, we are talking about our go-to books. We all have those books that we can never get enough of. I love re-reading books. I think there are so many merits to re-reading, but the main reason for me is that familiarity. Re-reading is like meeting up with an old friend and reconnecting once again after years or months apart. Here are the books I could read forever.
Cupid’s got his arrow out and is ready to make his mark once again. However, this single lady has only been struck by her swoon-worthy book boyfriends lately. I’ve started reading a lot more romance novels and with Valentine’s day just around the corner, I thought I’d share with you some of the most swoon-worthy novels I’ve read so far. Now, I tend to read a lot of the same author, so to save this list from becoming one massive gushing session on all of their books, I’ve chosen to spotlight one book by each author.
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.
I’ve mentioned this before, but I was not an avid reader when I was a child. I hated being told what I could or could not read so my great rebellion was simply not to read. Scandalous, right? I’ve not read a few of the books, but these are the ones I think would make great reading material for kids.
Let’s talk sports. Now, I must confess that I am not an athletically inclined person. However, I love watching sports and last year I jumped down the rabbit hole and discovered the addictive world of sports contemporary novels. These books are my go-to if I’m in the mood for a fun and fast read. They’re perfect books to get you out of that dreaded book slump. Today I am going to share with you the reasons you should read sports contemporary novels.
Science Fiction – fiction based on imagined future scientific or technological advances and major social or environmental changes, frequently portraying space or time travel and life on other planets.
I enjoy sci-fi, I really do. However, I’ve always gravitated towards fantasy more than science fiction. Fact, I do not have a scientific mind therefore it takes a while longer for me to understand the vocabulary and the science that’s explored in these world. I find it a lot easier to lose myself in a fantasy book. That doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy sci-fi. On the contrary, I think sci-fi is one of the most fascinating genres as it opens your mind to the wonders of the world and its potential, for better or worse. There are many reasons why I should read more sci-fi but these are chosen few I’ve decided to highlight.

History – the study of past events, particularly in human affairs.
There’s no doubt that contemporary and fantasy are my go-to book. I never want to limit myself to one particular genre so I’ll read anything and everything that interests me. I’ve not read many historic fiction books but the ones I have read have all been hits. As always, I have to be in the right mood to read historical fiction, but every time I’ve immersed myself in that genre I’ve always enjoyed it.
