Chasing Me Chasing You

An uncollared submissive struggling through depression, motherhood, and the constant craving of her next orgasm.

My Heart’s Desire

She blinded me with library science gif.
Sir bought me a bag with this on it when I finished my Master’s degree.

I love to read. I was not one of those kids who watched the movie or read the Cliff’s notes when writing a book report. I think the only book I put down without eventually finishing was Anna Karenina. That book drove me crazy on so many levels.

Typically I’ll read just about anything. I enjoy some sci-fi/fantasy, history, crime, biography. Right now I am working my way through the expansive Dismas Hardy Series by John Lescroart. Crime thriller plus beautiful San Francisco backdrop is a win/win.

Then there is the elephant in the room. My collection of smut (smut is what my mom calls it; and hers matches my own). At this point you could probably make a near life-size elephant out of them. Especially if you included all of my digital books. My general tastes are very specific; and I know that doesn’t make any sense.

My collection of romantic fiction is largely historical romance that take place in Scotland. I think I have a few English one. Most of the time, if there’s not a kilt on the cover, I’m not buying it. I don’t mind the formulaic nature or the predicable endings. Somehow, the Highlands of Scotland make that more palatable. And sometimes you just want a good happy-ending read.

However, while a nice quick read for a plane flight, these stories are not what I would call hot. As a kinky individual, I see and read BDSM into everything. But that still doesn’t always work in more vanilla fiction to get me hot and steamy. For that I need to alter the course a bit. And luckily, there is a large about amazing erotica and BDSM fiction out there. I wrote a general review of the Master’s of the Shadowlands series. Also, there is the book that should be named all of those similar works that have been subsequently released to its popularity.

I also keep meaning to write a review of Marie’s amazing work Flight LU-365 that was released earlier this year. I still intend to write a post about it, so I will just say that it’s amazing. A book that pushes your interpretation of a ‘happy ending’. An emotionally difficult piece that you just cannot put down.

I am sure that my blog will start to have more book reviews as I sort out more time to read. Now that we are moved into the new house I am hoping that evenings will be calmer. And I’m sure I will rotate through different types of books. Maybe I’ll keep two going at the same time. One ‘regular’ book to read on nights when Sir has to work late. And another for when he is home and wants to play. A good steamy piece of D/s fiction to get me dripping before he comes to bed.

The problem will always be putting the book down. Though I am sure that the real life variant will always win out.

    I was the same way. The only book I was assigned in school and didn’t finish was A Tale of Two Cities. Now, though, if I don’t like it that much I won’t finish it- there are always better books to try. I just started Reamde by Neal Stephenson and it is good so far. My Master really liked it too. Also, I just started 1001 Arabian Nights translated by Husain Haddawy.

    I`ll have to look at the Shadowland`s series – For me the old ones are always golden, Story of 0 – The Sleeping Beauty series by Anne Rice and The Marketplace, which I simply could not put down and read them all back to back twice lol – I adore Chris Parker what can I say . .

    I love to read when I have time, thrillers – if you like gruesome try Chris Carter but start at the Crucifix Killer and work upwards – amazing at graphically describing a murder scene and they grip you from page 1. I like Karen Rose, Kathy Reichs, Billingham.

    I`m off to Scotland in November, I will give it your best wishes! Xx

    There are some good recommendations in this post. I used to read a lot more than I did, but I reverted to audio books, which I listen in the car on my way to work and back to home. Anna Karenina was one of the audio books and I loved it 🙂
    Thank you so much for mentioning my book. I do look forward to your review. I also need to promote more… which is on my list of things to do…
