Welcome to my blog, Miss Pickel’s Picks.  As most of you know,  two of my favorite things are reading and talking about books.  If you know me you also know  that I’m completely scatterbrained and disorganized.  I read all these great books  and  I’m so excited about them, but then I can’t remember when someone asks me to recommend something good.  I need a place where I can put down all my thoughts about what I’ve read.  This way I can share my favorite books with you guys and you can comment on them, too.  My favorite genre is comedy, especially from a female point of view, so I usually call it “chick lit.”  A lot of chick lit is romantic comedy, which I love if  the emphasis is more on the comedy than on the romance.  I also really like a good mystery and I also like drama to some extent, but I don’t like to read books that are really sad.  While I love fun, breezy reads I also like books that  give me something to think about, especially if they present all sides of an argument.  That’s why I really like Jodi Picoult.  She tackles a lot of controversial issues in her novels and she tries to show issues from different perspectives.  Plus, she often adds an element of mystery and sometimes she has a twist right at the very end of the book.  In the past couple of years I’ve branched out into nonfiction, which I enjoy if I’m really into the subject.  I’m determined to start stepping out of my reading zone even more.  I’m really lucky to be able to work in a place where I’m surrounded by so many awesome people with various tastes and interests, so I figure I can use that to my advantage and read books that have been recommended by different people.  So here I go…
