Okay, so it isn’t technically Thursday, but my little one had a fever on Thursday so blogging got put on hold. I definitely like this meme better than Twitter Thursday, since it requires a lot less time. Booking Through Thursday asks a random question to bloggers each week. This week’s question:
Do you like to talk about what you read? Do you have somebody to talk WITH?
I love talking about what I’m reading but I haven’t found any one person to talk with. I have a good friend who enjoys paranormal romances – and frankly anything romantic. The last book we talked about was Firelight by Kristen Callihan. She loves erotic, memoirs, romance, and literary fiction – but I can’t stand that stuff, so she has to talk to her other friends about those genres. We actually had a book club but all these girls wanted to pick was romance novels. UGH.
I also converse with my mom for hours on the phone about books. She is a middle school teacher so every time I read MG (and some YA), I’ll tell her if I like it or not. If I really like it, I’ll mail her a paperback copy to share with her students. The last book I mailed her was The Magic Warble by Victoria Simcox, but the last book I recommended was The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater – I haven’t posted my review of this book yet but just know that it’s totally 5 stars.
I haven’t found anyone to share my love of horror stories. I’m definitely looking for a friend to recommend/share opinions of this genre.
