Musing Mondays - May 11

Musing Mondays is a weekly meme sponsored by Jenn of A Daily Rhythm that asks you to choose one of the following prompts to answer:
  • I’m currently reading…
  • Up next I think I’ll read…
  • I bought the following book(s) in the past week…
  • I’m super excited to tell you about (book/author/bookish-news)…
  • I’m really upset by (book/author/bookish-news)…
  • I can’t wait to get a copy of…
  • I wish I could read ___, but…
  • I blogged about ____ this past week…
THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: Do you have a “kindred” reading buddy — someone who very closely shares your taste in books? If not, do you wish you did?

I am really loving these weekly questions. They make me consider things I never did before.

While I can't say my oldest daughter and I are reading buddies, we often like the same books and talk about what we are reading. Being thirteen, she takes her excitement to a crazy level, being a member of several fandoms. Of course, when you consider my Little House and Anne of Green Gables obsessions, I guess I partake in my own fandoms too.

What about you? Are you part of any fandoms--even if they aren't really called that? Who do you most enjoy talking books with?

I actually think some fellow bloggers are kindred reading buddies. Even though I don't know them personally, there are a few who love a lot of the same books I do. It is so nice to rave over them together!

Other bloggers are the source of my reading excitement these days...when I was younger, I had friends who shared my obsession with Nancy Drew or later, Daphne DuMaurier.

Enjoy! Here is my BLUE MONDAYS MUSINGS POST

I'm not part of any fandoms, and I enjoy talking about books with my family the most, and sharing my thoughts on my blog.

My mom and i have completely different tastes. It absolutely impossible to get her to read a book I love and vice versa. haha. However, it nice that you and your daughter share similar interests and can talk about it XD

I would say most of the bloggers I follow would be my reading buddies. I usually tell my sister which books to read that I think she'll love.
