Reading romance and erotica


I love picking up a good romance, erotic, or romance erotica book. It gives me hope, a good giggle, puts me in “the mood” or just let’s me escape. Sometimes a book that follows a general course lets you take a big breath and relax. You know Mr. A and Ms. B are going to get together.

But I also read thrillers, mysteries, contemporary lit, and about anything I can. I enjoy pushing my limits. I love seeing characters come to life. I like seeing inside the mind of the antagonist. I like expanding my knowledge, understanding, and opening my mind. In my opinion, no one does that better than Jodi Picoult.

I sometimes wonder if those who read only romance books are missing out. Can you grow as a person when you read only fairy tale type stories? Can you be open minded? Do you push yourself to be better? And does this set you up with an unrealistic, unobtainable view of relationships?

That’s my random thought of the morning.


wow…just realized that (at least some) fanfics are listed on goodreads (so guess who almost completed this year’s reading challenge)


To speak and to speak well, are two things. A fool may talk, but a wise man speaks.

The more a child reads, the more likely he or she is to understand the emotions of others … Life would have been much more simple if I hadn’t read so damn much.

I love the way a book connects people, even if some people loved it and some people hated it. Reading together means we entered the same story, we walked the same streets and witnessed the same deaths and weddings.

my whole life is a read-a-thon


Do you ever read a book and then just stop for a bit and think about how depressed you are that you don’t get to live the story or the lives of the characters


late night reading can turn into early morning reading before you can say “i think i ship it”
