For as long as I can remember, I have been a reader. As a child I would sometimes walk to my local library and stamp the check out cards for the librarians (this was many years ago). I always enjoyed taking my children to story hour and I loved to just relax in the peace and quiet of the library. I continue to read everyday and I love that when I am reading I get transported to a different time and place. I have so much respect for authors who are able to entertain me, take me away from everyday problems and introduce me to new friends. I realized that I wanted to help other readers find and enjoy some of my favorite books and help authors promote their books. I thought the best way to do this was to create a blog, so that is what I did. I hope this blog will accomplish that goal and the anyone who stops by will find a new book or author to try.
I enjoy reading many different genres including suspense, mysteries, cozy mysteries, cozy ghosts, search and rescue and light romance. I would say that my favorite would be any type of cozy but I do enjoy the other ones too. I think the reason I enjoy cozies so much is that I love the characters and the settings. The characters become friends and people I want to learn more about. The small town settings become place I would love to visit and spend time at. Most of the time the mystery becomes secondary to me as long as the characters are well written.
I hope that you enjoy reading my book reviews and that you too find characters that become like family to you. I hope you find a setting that appeals to you and takes you there for a short visit. I hope you find a book that takes you away, if even for only a short time, and becomes your reality while you are reading. I hope you come back often to visit and enjoy your time here.
