This is one of the most frequent questions that I am asked. My love affair with books started when I learned how to read. From the first time I picked up a book and got lost in the story, I was hooked. Reading has been and always will be an escape for me. All of the things going on around me melt into the background as I lose myself in a world that someone has created. I don't know what the experience is like for you, but here is what it is like for me:
When I read, I see myself in the world that the author has created (at least if it is a good book). I go on journeys with characters, I am privy to their conversations and thoughts as though I were right there with them, and I see their world as if it is my world too. I am no longer a thirty-something woman sitting in her living room, I am an adventurer, a vampire, a fairy, a shifter, a detective...whatever the case may be, it takes me away. I have traveled to a host of places, real and imagined, through the world of books. I have hopefully instilled this into my children as well. It has helped me cope with some of the most difficult times in my life, and been there through the best. It has been passed down through generations in my family, and hopefully will continue to do so for many more.
So, back to my question, "What are you reading?" Here is what I am reading right now,
EKO (The NINE series, book #1) by Loren Walker
This is a fantastic read. I finished this book last week, and am excited to get into the second book, Nadi. I recently had the pleasure of meeting Loren, and am so excited to continue on with her series. She does a great job of building her world and characters. I could not wait to get to the next page. Thank you, Loren, for taking me to a new world.

Although my stack of TBR books is currently touching the ceiling, I would love to know what you are books you are reading and what you think about them. Use the comments section to answer my question to you:
