I love to read and I read a wide variety of books. My favorite genera is Fantasy by far, though. Since we read most of our books electronically (Kindle), and I am the primary account owner for the Kindles, I have even more variety.
Young readers: In an effort to get my grade schooler to read on his own, I purchased several Scream Street books. I also have several kid mysteries and a handful of I Survived books. Alas, he still doesn’t want to read on his own.
Young Adult: My older son loves to read. Maze Runner, Divergent, Hunger Games, City of Ember, Heroes of Olympus, etc.
Hubby will read a lot of the same books as me, but some unique ones too. Helmet for My Pillow, With the Old Breed.
Mine cover a WIDE array of topics.
- Fantasy includes Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn series, Robin Hobb’s Farseer and Liveship Trader series, Patrick Rothfuss’ King Killer Chronicles, and George R. R. Martin’s A Game of Thrones.
- Literature: Water for Elephants and The Help. Loved and hated The Help. Hated that humans are so mean to each other, especially about the color of someone’s skin.
- I love to read psychology related self help books, which include a few related to marital relations (The Five Love Languages), some for Asperger’s / Autism / ADHD (The Complete Guide to Asperger’s Syndrome), some for parenting (1-2-3 Magic).
- And I have some general self-help / inspirational books: Sex (I Love Female Orgasm and Women’s Anatomy of Arousal). Hey – we all need some help there from time to time! Choosing Gratitude, wonderful philosophy. And one that applies to professional AND personal life, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
