Over the years, I have become a bit of a picky reader. If the book doesn't get to the point within the first couple of pages, most of the time I put it down. Even so, when I do find a book I like, I've got to say, I really like it!
If you are having trouble finding books of your own, here are some of my favorite books, graphic novels, and series. Click on the book title, and you will come to the post I made for it. If no link comes up, it means I have not yet written a post!
Keep in mind, these are listed in NO PARTICULAR ORDER, because I cannot pick ONE favorite.
