Now that I’m finished with a major revision of my work-in-progress and now that it’s off to my writing partners for comment and critique, I have much more time left over for reading! Hooray! Here are the books I hope to dive into this month:
I loved Graceling!
I loved Die For Me (which I read on my flight to Paris last year and ended up, by accident, eating lunch at a restaurant mentioned in the book- La Palette!)
I loved Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour (see a theme here?). I’m a huge fan of contemporary YA, especially those with romance storylines.
I reread this book at least once a year, if not more often. Lamott offers great inspiration and motivation for my writing life in this fantastic book! A must-read for all writers!
Between every project and almost every draft of a WIP, I either reread a writing craft book or read a new one. This time, I’m reading a new one. Many friends have recommended Alderson’s Plot Whisperer blog and videos. I tried watching the videos, which are quite good, but I like to read information versus watch/listen – I absorb it better.
An adult memoir touted as “part love letter to Paris, part love letter to New York, and total devotion to all things sweet…” – Two cities I adore and yes, I love sweets! Sounds like a perfect read for me!
Happy PUB day to Jo Knowles for See You At Harry’s! I’ve already read this amazing book, but I plan to read it yet again and again. I am a huge fan of all of Jo’s books. Yes, she’s a good friend and one of my writing partners, but even so, I’d be a big fan! Love her writing! Come back next week to see my Spotlight on this book and on Jo! (and a chance to win a signed copy!)
I have no doubt I’ll be adding other books to my list in the coming weeks. I’d better get to the books! Happy reading!
What’s on your pile?
