What Are You Reading...Karen Whiddon and giveaway

Romantic Suspense and Nocturne Author Karen Whiddon reveals what is in her reading pile and offers a giveaway.

Well, these days I do most of my reading on my Kindle.  Though I write romance (and read it), often I like to read completely outside of my genre.  Science Fiction and Fantasy, Horror, and Young Adult books are among those I've delved into recently. 

I've just finished N.K. Jemison's The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms.  I liked it so much that I immediately ordered the second book in the trilogy The Broken Kingdoms.  Next up on my reading list is a young adult book called Divergent by Veronica Roth.  I'm really looking forward to that one.

For poolside reading, I like magazines.  I subscribe to the usual - Southern Living, Better Homes and Gardens, Woman's Day.  I'm also a big fan of Oxygen Magazine, and eagerly devour the new issue every month when it comes out.

Finally, I adore the Hungry Girl cookbooks and read those.  Since I recently quit the day job to write full time, I'm cooking more and love to cook healthy.  Tosca Reno also has a great cookbook out called The Eat Clean Diet.  Love it!

This month, my June Harlequin Romantic Suspense is out - The CEO's Surprise Baby.  One lucky winner will receive a copy. So leave a somment. 

Until next time!

  1. Read the excerpt on Amazon... it sounds intriguing!

  2. Congrats on quitting "the day job to write full time"! That's quite an accomplishment!

    I'm also glad you are "cooking more and love to cook healthy." I too have been working on that healthy part as much as possible (but broccoli is SOOOO much better with cheese sauce on it!).

    Keep up the good work!

    The book sounds great! And I envy your love of cooking. For me it's baking...which is not usually healthy. It doesn't help that I'm the one who eats it : )


  4. Congrats on writing full time! I don't read YA unless it's been highly recommended by my most trusted friends. I do read contemporary,historical,paranormal, and science fiction romance. I also like chick-lic and cookbooks..Don't read too many magazines but like Southern Living and Taste of try to cook healthy but I also like sweets so it's really hard.

  5. I read some YA too. I heard that Divergent by Veronica Roth is good, but I haven't read that one yet. I read a lot of magazines too. I haven't heard of the Oxygen Magazine, I will have to check this magazine out. I enjoy reading Taste of Home magazines and trying out some of the recipes in them.

  6. Congrats on writing full time!
    I read contemporary, YA, historical, paranormal, suspense and mysteries.
