I Have a Confession...

{I've been reading romance novels.}

It's true. It all started about this time last year when Morgan recommended I read 50 Shades of Gray. You can read my review here.

And then this fall Megan from The Book Asylum contacted me to work with her on a new blog design and I started connecting with other book bloggers. {isn't her new design fun?}


After meeting Natasha from Natasha Is a Book Junkie I realized that there is a whole world of book bloggers out there who aren't the least bit ashamed of reading romance. I spent weeks unconsciously soaking up racy reviews while redesigning Natasha's blog. She had a few book recommendations & I'm loving them!


I'm still treading lightly in the world of romance, and will never give up my love of novels, but it's been great to explore a new genre. And to be honest, between working fulltime and designing partime a book has to really grab my attention to beat out the TV or playing a game on my iPad at the end of the day.

I hear you. I used to read a lot of it. Can be fun.

Nora Roberts is my favorite. :) I loved the Bride Quartet series the best. :)

It's been a while since I've been able to sit down a read a book. The latest one I've been trying to finish is The Night Circus. Half way in and it's been a great read. :)

I'm not ashamed to say that I do dip in to a romance novel occasionally! Wouldn't want to read them all the time though, they are more of a guilty pleasure comfort thing.

Ahh, I love reading. Although I'm not into racy novels. I have started doing a monthly book review post of all the books I've read that month, but it's making me read obsessively to try and beat my previous record, so I'm not too sure that I have a long-term workable model going on, ha, but it's all a work in progress :D

It's definitely hard to find time to read! I recently hopped on the Kindle boat and it's helped me to read a bit more often. I'm reading The Perks of Being a Wallflower right now... fun read and I'm looking forward to renting the movie when I'm done. Have a great day, Katie!
