I’m aware it’s a little later in the day than normal, but it’s been a hectic week. Without further ado, day 7 of the 30 day blog challenge is to recommend my favorite book, so here it goes.
Growing up, I had reading comprehension problems. BAD. If you’re unsure of what that means, basically, I struggled with remembering what I had literally just finished reading. Because of that, reading was never something I enjoyed.
While in school, you’re basically forced to read. We took AR tests, read books, wrote reports, and so much more, depending on the age/grade you were in. Despite my weakness with reading comprehension, it was a part of my schooling, and I did have a say in it.
It wasn’t until after graduating high school that I actually found an interest in reading, which shocked me. Even still, I cannot read something unless it interests me quickly — within the first 1-2 chapters. If it is a slow book, I will lose interest and put it down.
With that being said, I definitely wish I had much more time to sit and enjoy a good book from time-to-time, but I typically don’t. My favorite books are romance, drama, mystery, suspenseful, etc. because they seem to catch my attention the most and keep me focuses for a while.
To date, my favorite book is called Lovers & Players by Jackie Collins. The story line follows the lives of three brothers (Max, Chris, and Jett) who are basically “summoned” to see their billionaire, asshole father, Red Diamond.
Max and Amy are engaged to be married. On the night of Amy’s bachelorette party, she meets her fiancé’s brother, Jett, without realizing who he is. They spend one wild, crazy night together, which later leads to complications once they find out who the other is.
Diahann works for Mr. Diamond, while her daughter, Liberty, tries to actively pursue her dream of becoming a singer. The lies, secrets, sex, money, and even murder intertwines the lives of everyone in such a short amount of time.
The drama will keep you alert and on your toes with this one. It truly was enjoyable for me, but it’s more for the mature reader. If you happen to read it, let me know what you think of it, too.
What is your favorite book to read, or do you have any recommendations that might fit in the categories that I’m intrigued by? I’m wanting to find time to get back into reading things that I enjoy.
Day 8 coming soon.
