Books I like to read

 

As much as I love my Kindle Fire, I’ve been getting more and more books from the library lately. This, of course, is a good thing because not only do I save money, help circulation numbers for my local library system but I discover books that I’ve heard of but wouldn’t necessarily seek out. So after returning some classic books that I’ve been trying to read for my book reviews, I thought about the kinds of books I generally read.

Personally, I love the real life stories but I also like those that also have a touch of the supernatural. I only like books written in first person point of view too. It’s just my own taste that some may not understand but I feel disconnected from a situation if someone involved isn’t giving me the details.

Books like The Secret Circle that I reviewed recently aren’t as interesting as it would have been with Cassie telling me the story. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone is a cute book that I still have to finish. The overly-fantastical world and the third person point of view makes me feel like a stranger rather than a participating figure in the story.

I have been trying to break out of my reading norm and reading books that aren’t my usual choice. This is why I have Harry Potter on my list as well as Clockwork Angel and Fallen. I admit, however, the books in my to-read stack now are all first person: A Moveable Feast, The Truth About Forever, To Kill A Mockingbird, and Switched.

  1. If you like first person POV I might suggest Sunshine by Robin McKinnley (sp). It is one of my all time favorite vampire books. Very creative!!

    I’ve been reading the Iron King series, which you might like. I wouldn’t have picked it up had it not been for a writer friend who works at a book store. I don’t usually read romance, but it is technically romance…plus fantasy and lots of adventure. I would love my next book to be in first person… we’ll see!
