- •Writing Great Books for Young Adults, by Regina BrooksThere's a minor character in the novel my agent has that I'm kind of in love with and want to get to know better and write more about. She's a teenager, and I think writing YA might be a good fit for me, so I've been toying with the idea of writing a sequel that isn't really a sequel for a while - particularly because I love the world and family I've created and am not really ready to leave them yet. Hoping this book will help me find my way! V readable so far. 8/10.
- •The White Princess, Philippa GregorySequel to "The White Queen." I love historical fiction, especially the English monarchies. This is a good read so far.Suggested by @becktacular
- •The Lives of Tao by Wesley ChuKind of a sci-fi/urban fantasy thriller. Fun and light so far.Suggested by @macnchz
- •The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane, by Kate DiCamilloThis is a kids book, I know. But it was recommended to me as a correlation to my current life situation, so I figured it was worth a read. So, far it's an endearing story with imagery so vibrant. We'll see how the rest of the story goes.Suggested by @sheri_who
- •A Brief History of Seven Killings by Marlon JamesIt's a long one, and I'm only thirty or forty pages in so far. I've heard such great things about it and I can't wait to get deeper into it. The dialogue is a little tough to read at first but so far I really love it. 8/10Suggested by @ladygoggog
