Booking Through Thursday

Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme (mostly) about books and reading.
You've just had a long, hard, exhausting day, and all you want to do is curl up with something light, fun, easy, fluffly, distracting, and entertaining.
What do you pick up?

Typically I would pick up whatever I'm currenlty reading - because any (good) book is an excellent means to escape the daily stresses and pressures.

BUT if I'm not wrapped up in a particular book I would go to some ol'faithfuls that make excellent distractions:

I would pick up either The Twilight Books:



or The Sookie Stackhouse Books:

The Twilight Series books are very light and easy and full of fluff but for more entertainment/adult purposes I'd go with Sookie!

What about you?

  1. Yes, I agree - escapism is my motto when I read. Though I've yet to read the Sookie Stackhouse series.

    Thanks for stopping by.

  2. I don't know about Sookie but I might have to look into it.

  3. I am not a re-reader of books, I am always reading something new. Now when I am tired or in a book reading slump, I lean toward a light romance book.

  4. I have yet to read any of the Sookie Stackhouse books. I need to work at least one into my schedule!

    Thanks for visiting my blog :)

  5. I haven't yet read any Sookie Stackhouse but on your recommendation will certainly consider them in the future. I do enjoy Stephanie Meyers and J.K. Rowling would fit in the same category too.

  8. At some point I will have to get a hold of the Sookie books (I've been ordered to, lol) but as of yet have not. Sad considering my love of vampires and the fact I write about them, sigh. Oh well.

  11. Hmm...I have a feeling that my opinion on the Twilight Saga would not be very appreciated...lol.

    But I haven't read the Sookie books, though I want to.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog :D

  12. I finished the Sookie series, but I love those. Twilight is good too but Sookie would be my favorite.

  13. I'm usually reading a new book but when I'm stressed nothing beats old favorites.

  14. I usually pick up whatever book I'm reading, but if it's a really rough day, I might pick up a magazine. I keep seeing comments about the Sookie books and am planning to read those next!

    Right now I'm reading a book by a new author that I'm working with called (S)Mythology by Jeremy Tarr. I'm really excited about it, so I thought I would share. It's a modern day fairy tale that is wry and whimsical, and tackles life...death...and the Underworld. The book is super cute and has illustrations by artist Katy Smail, which really bring the main character Sophie to life. Sophie has really fantastical adventures meeting really wild characters that make the story so much fun. I think you'd really like it!

    You can read the first three chapters and check out the illustrations at http://www.smythology.co.uk or check out the book on Amazon here: http://amzn.to/Shardcover.

    Enjoy! I love your blog!
