While I am an avid reader, I primarily stick to romances. I would say that my favorites are historical romances, but I love romance novels in every category.
Grimm's Fairy tales remind me of both my childhood home and the home I now have with my husband and 4 kids. My mom read it to me and my siblings and I in turn read it to my children. Later, I read my oldest 3 the Chronicles of Narnia. My main reason at the time was that my son was dyslexic and had book reports due, but we all enjoyed them. Then my two oldest girls and I traded the Sookie books back and forth. They are both married and out of the house now, but we still share series and get together to discuss them. I think I only read paranormals to preview them for my girls :) Alaina likes vampires and shapeshifters while Sarah likes fantasy and dragons. It keeps my reading well diversified. I can't get either of them hooked on historicals however, hard as I try! Luckily, I got my love of historicals from my mom, so we swap and chat about them. She just doesn't like all the "sex" lol..
