I want to feel addicted

I'll admit it. I'm a book junkie.  Admitting it might be half the battle but I'm actually not looking for a cure.  By contrast, I am happy to stay proudly am addict.  Frankly its why I became a writer in the first place.  Back then, it was Christine Feehan books that did it to me. I couldn't get enough of the Carpathians.

These days, my taste in books has changed. I like books darker, hotter, and more intense than Feehan writes them but I'll always remember that feeling I had when I discovered those books. How intensely I needed to read them, how I craved the next book and the next book.

I don't have time in my life for books that make me feel only slightly interested.  The author has a minute or two to catch my attention and then I'm done.  And I've made some hard choices over the last few years--I've had to stop reading books that I once loved because they no longer seem interesting.

Its hard to write for a writer to read. We're picky. But I want to feel addicted. So give me some ideas. Who do you read that you can't get enough of?

This writer wants to know...
