Book List

I am an avid reader, and if I am not reading I am usually doing one of the following: Watching TV, Playing with S, Surfing the Web, or Blogging.  I read every night before I go to sleep basically until I can’t keep my eyes open any longer.  I also like to read while S is outside playing.  I climb in my hammock seat and swing away while S plays, swims or drives his vehicles around.  I seem to read through quite a few books and thought I would start making a list.  I usually search for authors who are similar to Mary Higgins Clark, Sue Grafton, or Janet Evanovich.  When I find an author I like I read an entire series.   Just so you know the lists are from newest to oldest.  So the first book in the series would be at the bottom and the most recent book would be at the top.  I like to read books on my Nook if they are available, and if not I go the old fashioned way and get them from the library.  So here goes nothing.

I am currently reading:

Paige Shelton-Farmer’s Market Murder Mystery Series

  • Fruit of all Evil

I have read the following in 2015:

These are organized by author and series.  They do not necessarily go in chronological order of how I read them.  I used to do them in chronological order, but it was confusing to try and keep track of the books from each author, so this year I am doing it by author, not order.  I do plan to read the books in order so the first book in a series will be the first book I read (get the idea?).  I am also going to note whether it was a paper book or ebook.
