Not that the week stretches out too long for me. But Friday just means I have made it through yet another week.
I've noticed an increase in followers lately and I have to give credit to those wonderful people over at Book Blogs.
Visit Book Blogs
I'm truly loving it over there. Plus, I've changed the look of my blog. Granted, I went for a patterned background, but I just have to have a splash of fun color in my blog. I also want it to be easy to read and white or light gray on a dark background... I wasn't loving it. So tell me what you think of it.
Okay, now on to my Friday post. I've decided to post books I have read or want to read. I would also love, LOVE to have suggestions from you. I also know a lot of you are writers and have published, so I would love to read your book(s) as well. I'll gladly read your books and post my thoughts on them here.
What I have read: The entire Harry Potter series, by J. K. Rowling. I started the first one and just could not stop there, I had to read them all! I am a kid at heart after all.
The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings trilogy, by J. R. R. Tolkien. Now, being a fantasy writer, you all expected that, right? Well guess what. I did not read ANY of these books until AFTER the first movie came out. That's right, you heard me correctly. I tried to read The Hobbit when I was a teen and just could not get into it. I've even had my work reviewed on Writing.com and was told I have a Tolkien-esque style. I never realized the full compliment until I read his work. Now I devour anything he's written.
I am currently reading The Saxon Shore by Jack Whyte. So far, I love it. I'll give you more details when I finish it.
Okay so give me some suggestions as to what I should read next! I'm eager to hear what you have for me. Have a great weekend everyone!
