Hello, I'm from Texas where the weather is psycho & changes every day. We have a full range of seasons pretty much every week. I read & crochet & craft & sew (sigh).
Anyway, I love books. I used to have a huge library of books but I moved around a lot & moving the books became problematic. I ended up donating almost all of my entire collection, I kept a few ;) I read mostly ebooks & listen to audiobooks now. That way, I always have plenty of reading/listening material with me at all times.
My favorites are in the romance category... paranormal, scifi/futuristic, urban fantasy, some fantasy, & occasionally historicals. Eclectic, that's me.
I don't read non-fiction as reading is an escape to me, not a learning experience. That's just torture. :P
Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting...
"HOLY shit...what a ride!"

Hi and welcome to PTS!

I love all the same genres as you and I've run into the same issue with storing 'real' books. I've separated them into must-keep, maybe-keep and willing-to-part with. I think I'll donate them to the local library.

Hi. I like a lot of the same genre as you. I'm looking for new series in vampire or shifter to read. Any suggestions?

Hi Welcome..just wanted to say that I LOVE non-fiction for escape. Truth is stranger than fiction you know. I'm reading a memoir now by Augusten Burroughs...more entertaining than many fictional books I've read.

Well that's a tall order... LOTS and LOTS of those books out and most of them are series that gets a new book every year or so. Don't know what you've already read....
There are some great lists at Goodreads that can help you find new books, here's just one and it has like 929 series listed.

It only posts the first book in the series but you can click on the book and then click on the series. The first book listed is from the Black Dagger Brotherhood by JR Ward, probably my very favorite series ever. Anywho, loads of reading potential there. Hope this helps with your question. ;D

I don't need to know what can & IS actually happening. The world's scary enough. I'll just pretend that it's all make-believe and continue on with my head in the clouds. ;)
