Sweet Escape

love to read... and that just might be the understatement of the year.   Books are my friends and treasures, an escape from the routine, stress and sometimes boredom of every day life.  

I'm a fiction lover at heart.  My favourite genre of all-time is historical romance but I enjoy a good inspirational book, chick-lit, popular fiction, fantasy, mystery and I've been known to pick up a thriller from time to time. 
 
While most women have visions of dream kitchens or closets floating in their head, I dream of a library all to myself.   The thought of floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, wall-to-wall books, comfy chairs, a cozy fireplace and a big bright window makes my heart flutter.  It goes without saying that should I ever find myself with such a retreat, I also dream of the time to enjoy it!

Some of my favourite authors from various genres include Nicholas Sparks, Francine Rivers, Nora Roberts, Lucy Maud Montgomery, Debbie Macomber, Dean Koontz and Jodi Picoult.  I listed some of my all-time favourite reads in my complete profile but I'll list them here for your perusal:
  • Redeeming Love - Francine Rivers
  • A Walk To Remember - Nicholas Sparks
  • The Zion Covenant - Brock & Brodie Theone
  • Ordinary Heroes - Scott Turrow
  • Little Women - Louisa May Alcott
This list is by no means inclusive and I'm always looking for an unexpected treasure to add to my list... so, fellow book lovers, what's on your bookshelf?  Who are your favourite authors and what's your next great read?
