Reading Profile (Readers Advisor)

I am someone who loves to read and my goal on Goodreads is usually between 80-100 which I usually go over. It has been on the lower end lately because of school since I haven't had as much free time. I enjoy reading just about everything but am not as interested in romance books. For me it is ok is there is some romance in a book I just don't enjoy the heavy romance books. The genres I enjoy the most are mysteries, thrillers, young adult, science fiction, and fantasy. As long as the book has some suspense or something to figure out I usually enjoy it. Most of the book I am able to read right now is audiobook that I listen to on my way to work and when I am able to get exercise in. Audiobooks can sometimes be hit or miss because not every reader is good but the ones that are, bring the story to life with the production. One of my goal in the next few years is to turn my office into my own personal library by adding more bookshelves and of course more books. This will give me the ability to go in and find a book at any time that I may want to read. Here are some of my personal picks for last year and my top five books and series that I enjoyed reading:

The topic 5 books that I read last year are:

  1. Three Dark Crown by Kendare Blake (3 sisters with different gifts fighting for the crown only one can live in the end)
  2. City of Lies by Victoria Thompson (historical fiction that talks about the suffragette movement, really liked that she used actual know people for supporting characters) 
  3. Bone Gap by Laura Ruby (This was a book I read for one of my classes but I enjoyed trying to figure out how the story was going to end. This book was a mix of realism with fantasy which is an interesting mix)
  4. Burned by Ellen Hopkins (Written in versus talking about a family struggle to survive in an abusive family) 
  5. Night by Elie Wiesel (This is a heartbreaking book about Elie surviving in concentration camps during WWII) 
The topic 5 books and series that I enjoy:
  1. Harry Potter by JK Rowling 
  2. The Stephine Plum series by Janet Evanovich
  3. The Selection series by Kiera Cass
  4. The Martian by Andy Weir
