I Love Reading Books

Mildly Adult · Notifications: · Newest First
My grandparents taught me how to read around 4-5. I've always had a higher reading level and I love to read.

As a kid I read fantasy books featuring a strong heroine, like Talking to Dragons by Patricia C Wrede and Alanna by Tamora Pierce and the Blue Sword.

When I was 16 I started reading serious erotica. When I was a little younger I'd read my mom's romance novels. Pirates and forced brides ;)

And now ~ I love Mafia romance, Motorcycle club romance, Dark Romance, sometimes sweet romance, young adult sci-fi/fantasy. I also read health related books, books on bettering your finances, books for making a better home for the kidz, etc.

And lately, I've read a couple here and there of thrillers and supernatural (aka sexy vampires hehe).

Overall I just love to read.

Check out the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan. Scifi fantasy. Many strong women.

Oh my god. I loved that Series. First book ever - 1000 pages hehe. I'll have to reread those books. I haven't since before college. David Eddings is also quite Awesome. You should try Seraphina and the Black Cloak. AWESOME.

Part horror, part fantasy, part supernatural, part historical. So awesome.

There is a new author named Patrick Rothfuss who is amazing. His first book in the Kingkiller Chronicles is called The Name of the Wind. I don't like how critical of poets he is throughout his writes, because I am one, but otherwise the writing, the wisdom and beauty of his scifi stories is utterly unique.

I also like many different genres of books. Romamce and fantasybare like total escapism but I like learning things from books and onea that give me pause for thought too.

@darktippedrose: Sounds like youve read a lot more romance than me. One I particularly liked - I did like the characters, their connection and the build up but tbh I think the sx scenes were just brilliantly described! Another one I recently read, I liked, but that was more to do with the fantasy (/magical realism?) aspect of it. The ending just seemed to be 'lets just make this a quick predictable happily ever after though'.

There are so many on kindle for quite cheap and it's a big market so more room for rubbish ones!

What you say about a big emotional or physical connection - yes, I'd like that in a book too - maybe because Id like it in real life.

@amethyst1: I grew up on my mom's historical romance novels. All those "spears" tearing the heroines asunder hehe. They were basically my sex education.

As for sex scenes, I beg to differ. Some are good and some are just horrible. I don't like my imagination to do all the work.

But I've been reading romance for a while, so my standards are higher. I like alpha males, and alpha male sex.

@darktippedrose: Well I was just referring to one particular book regarding the sex scenes in it. Obviously not just any book containing them is good or to my taste!
