I’ve noticed that I tend to write better when I’ve been reading really great books! So, as part of my writing journey, I thought I should mention and share some of what I’ve been reading. I’ve posted a few book reviews on my website that you may want to check out…
I’m also going to share the latest awesome book I’ve read, Blood Song by Cat Adams. This was a fast read. I read the book in a day and a half and I cannot wait for the sequel. The book is about a tough body-guard who is half turned into a vampire (yes only 1/2 way!) It is partially a mystery to find out who did
this to her and why, part kick ass vampire book, and there is a nice little surprise twist at the end leaving the reading drooling for the sequel. The author’s style of writing is easy flowing, easy to read, and gets your attention quick and keeps it. I highly recommend it and rate it 4 1/2 out of 5 stars. I have to take off 1/2 a point because she had so many characters in the book that I lost track a couple of times. I had to say, “Who? Who was that?” a couple of times. Otherwise, excellent read!
So, these are the awesome books that I’ve been reading lately. You can enjoy them to and hopefully, see their influence positively reflecting in my writing.

It’s true! Years ago a writing instructor said that and I’ve read it many times since. It is really important to read good works, we learn as we read, how to improve ourselves. It’s funny how it works but I think of it as painless learning or pain free self improvement, lol. Thanks for sharing your “read” and reminding me that I need to get back to reading again!
Exactly! Thanks! The more you read, the more you know what good writing “looks like.” Plus it is fun! 🙂
