I Have a Confession...These are My Obsessions...

So, I decided to link up with Bonnie over at Living a Wonderful Life today! :) 
We are to admit our OBSESSIONS and they can be personal/professional and as many or as few as we want. Since I am known to ramble...I will try not to make it too long... ;)

I absolutely LOVE Glee! I watch the show religiously and always download my favorite songs onto my iPad from iTunes. I rock out to my Glee playlist to and from work everyday! I am a total GLEEK and proud of it! :)

Now...I am not obsessed with vampires in general. I don't go seeking out anything and everything that has to do with vampires. No... It just seems that many of my favorite books, TV shows, and movies have vampires in them. (Twilight, Vampire Diaries, True Blood, Sookie Stackhouse Novels, Anita Blake Series, etc.)  I can't help the fact that Edward Cullen, Stefan Salvatore, Eric Northman, and Jean-Claude are such fantastic characters... ;) 

I am a total bookworm! (I have a shirt given to me by by father-in-law that says: So many books...So little time. So true :)) I have always loved reading from the time I was little. Back then my obsession was with mysteries & scary books. (Nancy Drew, Boxcar Children, Goosebumps, etc.) Now, I love to read romance novels. Particularly Historical/Regency Romance & Paranormal/Fantasy Romance Novels. I read Contemporary & YA Romance as well. Along with my obsession with Romance Novels, I'm also obsessed with book series. I have to read book series in order. I cannot start a series in the middle and skip around. MUST be from the BEGINNING! :) I have listed some of my favorite book series and authors below...
The Fever Series by Karen Marie Moning...I need to reread these! :)

  • Slightly series by Mary Balogh (Historical)
  • Mortal Instrument series by Cassandra Clare (YA Science Fiction/Fantasy)
  • Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare (YA Science Fiction/Fantasy)
  • Immortals After Dark series by Kresley Cole (Paranormal)
  • Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter series by Laurell K. Hamilton (Fantasy)
  • Meredith Gentry series by Laurell K. Hamilton (Fantasy)
  • Lords of Deliverance series by Larissa Ione (Paranormal)
  • Fallen series by Lauren Kate (YA Fantasy)
  • The Cynster Novels by Stephanie Laurens (Historical)
  • Pennyroyal Green series by Julie Anne Long (Historical)
  • The Fever series by Karen Marie Moning (Urban Fantasy)
  • Celestra series by Addison Moore (Paranormal YA)
  • Bridgerton Family series by Julia Quinn (Historical)
And of course there are many more authors & series that I ADORE, but I couldn't possibly write them all down... 
Here's what I am planning to read next:

Can't wait to see what happens next with Clary & Jace!
I'm sure I have many more obsessions, but I figured my 3 main ones would be enough! :) Hope you enjoyed getting a peek at my OBSESSIONS! What are yours?
