Happy Saturday. This weekend is always rough for me because, as some of you know, I lost my mom in 2008. However, I have the best step-mother anyone could ask for, and I also love my mother-in-law, so I count myself as blessed.
An update on my pain situation: The Neurologist turned out to be the wrong doctor to see, because he couldn’t help me (on the plus side, it’s something else that has been ruled out). It’s unfortunate because I waited two months to see him.
I’ve had two physical therapy sessions which are going well. It doesn’t really help the pain because it hurts to move, but I can’t imagine sitting around all day is good for me, so I’m choosing to believe it’s helping. I see pain management again on Monday, and I have an MRI (ugh) on Tuesday…so we will see.
Alright, enough about that. I’m doing a tag today. It was created by Drew @ The Tattooed Book Geek!
1. What is your favorite genre?
Tough question, but I think I’m going to go with Fantasy.
2. Who is your favorite author from that genre?
I have a really hard time picking favorite authors, because every time I read a new book that I love, that author becomes the new favorite. So, I’m going to say that my latest favorite fantasy book is The Savior’s Champion by Jenna Moreci.
3. What is it about the genre that keeps pulling you back?
Fantasy is so vast. Each story is so unique because there is so much material to work with. I think I love to get lost in the world that has been created. I love that even though the worlds and characters are so magical, fantasy novels somehow manage to make you feel like it’s all possible.
4. What is the book that started your love for that genre?
The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien.
5. If you had to recommend at least one book from your favorite genre to a non-reader/someone looking to start reading that genre, what book would you choose and why?
I recently really enjoyed the Daughter of Smoke & Bones series by Laini Taylor. The writing is beautiful and the world is so amazing, so I would recommend that to someone looking for a fantasy to read.
6. Why do you read?
I read because I love to be whisked away to new worlds, and I love to read about well developed character’s journies. I’m also slightly addicted to stockpiling books, so there’s that too.
I tag anyone who would like to answer the questions! Wish me luck with these appointments this week. I’m really hoping to find relief soon.
Happy Mother’s Day to all you wonderful Moms out there. ♡
