I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

 Genre: From Picture Books to Young Adult, link up here

I will read almost anything but I absolutely love children's books. My youngest child will be 24-years-old this summer but I'm still buying them. Picture books can bring back memories but often they're just a nice story. 

I recently read An Extra-Ordinary Princess and enjoyed it so much that I told a girl about it that I meet at California Adventures while waiting for the water show! (I've also bought one she recommended) I've told countless people about There's No Such Thing as a Dragon. Neither of these were read when I was little, or with/by my kids.

The Mr. Putter and Tabby series was enjoyed by my son. I recently purchased and read Spin the Yarn, and am thinking of purchasing all the ones I missing.

I'm not too thrilled about some of the newer Young Adult. Usually they are well crafted, wonderful stories, Harry Potter anyone, but some are just toned-down adult books with as much sex as they think they can get away with. I've been trying to read the under 12 books more instead of the 15 - 18 range. I'm totally up for recommendations!

Um, why did I think you didn't blog anymore? Did you go away for a while or move or something? I went away myself and when I came back I sort of went through my reader and got rid of ones that hadn't updated in the last 6 months so maybe it was my bad. I don't know what happened but glad to see you!

I did take a break last summer and then didn't post everyday afterwards. I can't post on your blog, google+? I haven't decided on my google profile
