This post is part of the A-to-Z Challenge.
Every night I read before going to bed. And on weekends, I often just sit around and also read, especially if there is a good book at hand.
Murder mysteries and biographies are my favorite genres. I used to read nothing but murder and true crime books. After jumping at any little sound, I decided I was getting too involved in true crime. Now I temper my fanaticism with little doses of comedy and non-crime books, especially biographies.
Be still my heart – Tom Selleck plays Jesse in the made-for-TV movies. And the latest one will premier on May 20th!
As for biographies, David McCullough is a favorite for his Truman and John Adams biographies. I also quite enjoyed Mornings on Horseback (about Theodore Roosevelt’s early years).
Recently I read Broken by Lauren Hilldebrand. An incredible book; read it if you can. Currently I am reading The Horse Boy by Rupert Isaacson. True story of a boy with autism and his family’s quest to connect with him.
For lighter laugh-a-minute reading, I highly recommend Janet Evanovich, Diane Mott Davidson, or David Sedaris.
Peter Hessler has written several books about his experiences in China; they are priceless.
I could go on and on, but will stop so you can provide your recommendations.
