Extended Profile


It’s been a while since I’ve been very active but I like to pop in here and there and still love a good wild release!

I read all types of fiction (except romances) and especially enjoy Fantasy, Thrillers/ Mysteries and Horror. I also enjoy literary novels, non-fiction on various subjects and the odd biography. Some of the items on my bookshelf are books that my husband has read, and may confuse the issue of my reading tastes.

I especially love an atmospheric gothic feel to a book and am always searching for these types of books. I used to keep a list of books I’ve read, just to help myself keep track. It’s been a while since I’ve updated that but I still read as much as I can ( which is far less since becoming a Mom 6 years ago).
