If know me in real life or if you’ve hung around my Facebook page you know I love to read.

JMM reading


I am that gal that you could ask any day of the week any week of the year and I can tell you what book I am currently reading. So what is my favorite book? A question you’d think I have a steadfast answer to but in fact it’s the opposite. It’s a question I  break a sweat over. How could I chose A favorite, that would be unfair to all the other favorites…

I loved the Yong Adult dystopia trilogy Razorland (Enclave, Outpost, and Horde) by Ann Aguirre. Now it is true that my Young Adult favorites change and I am likely to love the most recent ones I have read. I remember not being able to put Hunger Games down because I felt like I was leaving Katniss in a tree if I stopped reading. 

I don’t only fill up on teenagers who carry the weight of saving a collapsing government or aftermath of the apocalypse. I also love the wonderful world of best friends, summer vacations, and the tales of family drama that all the best Chick Lit has to offer. The Weight of Silence by Heather Gudenkauf has stood the test of some time as one of my favorites. It’s a bit darker than your light summer reading, but all my favorites are. I could never have a favorite book list that didn’t include something from Jodi Picoult. Nineteen Minutes and The Pact will always have a place on my shelf. 

An Epic Fantasy, a series that creates an entire new world for me to become lost in, one where the people love more deeply and grief is even more tragic, where wild mythical creatures are tamed by innocents and wild beasts can be commanded. That would have to be  A Song of Ice and Fire, better known as The Game of Thrones, by George R.R. Martin. An author you should NEVER ask to keep your most beloved character alive.

What about you, what are your favorites?


This post was an idea from Snarkfest. If you are a blogger consider yourself tagged, post you favorites and link back here ;)

    a couple of things…
    1) do you draw/create all of these cartoons of yourself? because they are awesome!
    2)in the photo hanging on the wall in the above cartoon, what are you holding? it looks…interesting.
    3) i love to read, too! and, thanks to this post, i have new books to add to my evergrowing “to-read” list!!

    • I don’t do any of the artwork. I’m skilled only in the art of stick figure. If you check the “My Crew” you’ll see Davian. He is such a cool kid with so much talent.

      The photo on the wall is another drawing he did for me when I was nominated for the Leibster award. Phalic awards are always the best ;)

      Glad to add to your reading list. If you post on your favorites let me know. :)
