Ok, so I can't say that I've been too busy to blog. I can't say that I've been too busy to read. In fact I have been reading...alot! I just haven't taken the time to write about my reading. It's been a long 6 months full of good books and not so good books. But I have rediscovered my favorite all-time novel series and I'm reading through them from start to finish. I first read Outlander by Diana Gabaldon back when the 2nd book in the series Dragonfly in Amber was first published...oh say early 1990. I loved it then and instantly became a Diana Gabaldon fan. But one thing or another got in the way...kids, family, career, etc. and I never even knew she had continued the series into books 3 - 7!!
So one day I'm at my local bookstore browsing through the literature section and see Outlander and Dragonfly in Amber on the shelf. I don't usually re-read books, that's just not my style. But these have always been my favorite books and I hadn't read them in so long that I thought it would be worth a second try. And to my extreme delight...Diana had written 5 more!!! So that sealed the deal...I would re-read Outlander and Dragonfly and then continue with the rest of the series. So here I am, 3 months into the reading of the series and I'm on book #4. I fell in love with them then and I'm definitely in love with them now!!!
I don't think I'll write a review on Outlander or any of the series, but maybe just give a synopsis of each of the books. I know that if I did write a review, however amateur a review as it might be, I would give the entire series 5 stars and Diana Gabaldon an award for best fiction author...that's how much I love these books. :)
For where all love is, the speaking is unnecessary. It is all. It is undying. And it is enough."
