It wasn't until later that I gravitated towards erotic romance, so I had to own everything by Sierra Cartwright, Melissa Schroeder, Sasha White, Shayla Black, Cathryn Fox and Cherise Sinclair, to name a few...but the list of authors continued to grow and grow and grow. My erotic list was outrageous!
Eventually I toned it down and moved to books with less heat and included Catherine Anderson and Susan Elizabeth Phillips.
Now that I'm older, my TBR pile is quite eclectic. Yes, it still includes romance, but the genre of that is so huge now, that it covers everything from comedy to shapeshifting, to BDSM, to westerns. I even have a friend who loves to read about sheikhs! I've also thrown in spiritual, cookbooks, motivational, suspense and mystery to round things out.
What about you? Do you only read a particular type of novel, or do you mix things up a little?
