Diane W.

I grew up reading Archie comic books and Nancy Drew on the long drive to my grandparent's house up north. When I was 15 years old my brother recommended JRR Tolkien's "The Hobbit" for my next read. I loved it! I went on to read "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy that same summer. My love of books led me to take a degree in English Literature and I enjoyed many of the classics. I'm drawn to a writer's style more so than genre. If I find an author's style engaging I'll try to read more than one of their books. I often read recommended books by other readers and book clubs so I can fast track to a good book instead of spending time trying to find one I'll enjoy. I also like to binge watch great TV Series. When I'm not engrossed in a book or series, I spend time enjoying the outdoors with my family and pets.
