I haven’t written in quite some time. I have been reading like crazy. I go to the library all the time, and I have found a new favorite genre: Cozy Mysteries. I have a reading list to review that is so long I will have lots of posts ahead of me. Today I was thinking about what books to reserve next at the library and it occurred to me that the Tucson Festival of Books is coming up again. That was the event which drew me into this blog last year, so I also thought of this blog again and realized that it has been so long since I posted last. So, with the Tucson Festival of Books March 15-16 of 2014, I have a whole new list to get onto reading. With that in mind, here is a poll to get you thinking.
I went through the list of authors in several genres and reserved many books based on each of these ideas, so we will see.
Currently, I am most looking forward to seeing Lois Lowry, author of The Giver, and Laurie Halse Anderson, author of Speak. These are two authors I love so much of what they have written. If you have any books you recommend my reading, leave a comment. If you have any questions about authors you can do the same.
It is fantastic to live in Tucson. I love everything about living here! The weather, the people, 4th Avenue, my family: all amazing. We have a Gem and Mineral Show that is huge. Wandering through it, I was ecstatic! Surrounding me on all sides was one of my biggest passions, rocks and minerals!
Now there is the Tucson Festival Of Books! If I had known about this I would have moved here long ago. However, it wasn’t until college that I discovered this amazing event. Even then I haven’t attended, probably out of some jealousy that others had gotten to grow up with this wonder and I was so far behind. However, now that I live here I just have to take part in the excitement.
I have a husband who cares greatly about movies. He has a list of 1265 favorite movies. I have been impressed by this as I have watched it grow through our five years of marriage. One of my favorite things he has is a collection of lists he uses to find movie recommendations. It occurred to me as I began avidly reading, eating up all the authors on the list for the Tucson Festival of Books, that I could make such a list. I have a passion to share my heart with others, and books often show me a reflection of myself. They teach me something about humanity that is worth sharing with the wider community out there. So, I decided to create a blog sharing about books I have read and giving recommendations about who would enjoy reading said books.
