Jennifer talks about reading to escape...
The world is going crazy and I’ve had enough. The American election has turned into a reality show, an embarrassment to our country and to the world.
Countries that support terror are running amok, with little to any pushback from anyone. Photos are horrific and the lack of assistance is staggering.
The edges are sharp and harsh and no one is stepping in to be a role model or even to be kind.
So I read to escape from what I see all around me. And if you’re feeling the same way, may I suggest you read any of the books that we, as bloggers and authors, write? All of us write romance and the requirement for romance is a story with a happily ever after or a happily for now ending. That requirement is missing in the world right now.
If none of our books suit your interest—and that’s totally fine, reading tastes are subjective and we can’t all satisfy everyone—there are mysteries to get your blood racing, and historicals to remind you of happier times, and women’s fiction to showcase the bonds between women, and biographies. Oh yeah, biographies, of some of the better leaders this world has seen—perhaps they will fill you with hope.
Perhaps disappearing into a good book will soften the edges, lower the stress and restore our faith in the world.
So if you’re looking for me, I’ll be buried in my Kindle for the foreseeable future. And if you want to join me, let me know what you’re reading—perhaps I’ll try it too.
