My Love Of Reading

Since Susan is out sick, I am writing the editorial. Now, I am not much of a writer. I love to read and write reviews. When I first started reviewing books for Reader Views, I hadn’t read in a long time. I remember when I was a kid, I would read “Goosebumps” series, written by R.L. Stine, walking to the bus stop. I wanted my son to have the same love of books as I did. The best way to make that happen is to be a living example. Here I am, reading hard core for four years now.

If you want to know a little something about me, my genre of choice is Mystery/Thriller/Horror. I love all things suspense and I love to be scared to death. Call me crazy but if I can read or watch something super scary, I am a happy girl. I am also a sucker for crime. I watch a lot of true crime on Investigation Discovery channel…almost so much I scare my friends. They think I am plotting something. (I swear I am not.)

I also really love to read in many genres, all the way to the Self-Help/Inspirational genre. I find that I can balance myself when I feel down or like the world is against me. While I am not a religious person, I find inspiration in the journeys of others. Since finding the Indie book world, I have fell in love with many different books and authors. I have learned so much from Indie authors that I cannot even express my joy with words.

Someone called me a bookworm the other day. I thought…well yes…yes I am! I am ok with that! I am a bookworm! I know we do not normally do this but I wanted to share my top 10 list of books I have read in the Indie world so far. Keeping it simple and in no particular order:
