The majority of titles that I've read in the past few years have been in the fantasy & paranormal romance genres. Lately, I've been reading more sci-fi and I absolutely love it. It's a refreshing change of pace without being too far outside of my comfort zone. I've already found a handful of sci-fi authors to follow and I'm looking forward to finding more.
I had less time for reading this past year. Circumstances changed with work and I began volunteering at our local humane society when I wasn't working or spending time with the kids. Then I began fostering for a local rescue, which included bottle feeding orphaned kittens. It's very, very time consuming with feedings every 2-3 hours...even in the middle of the night. And when I did have time to read I was so physically and mentally exhausted that I couldn't concentrate. So audiobooks were a great solution for me. I can listen to a book on the ride to work, I can listen while I'm bottle feeding the kittens, I can listen while I'm cleaning. It's wonderful. Anyone who says they can't get into audiobooks just hasn't found the right story and narrator.
In 2013, I only read 12 graphic novels and less than 5 single issues. I had too many review books to read and less time for leisurely reading so I'm behind on a lot of comic series that I've been wanting to get to. I plan on requesting less review books this year (we'll see how that goes) so I should have a little more time to fit them in.
Here is the fifth group of kittens rescued -
One of the reasons I have less time for reading.
