Reading for me is a passion. I was brought up on many books, some were The Famous Five, Trixie Beldon, and Colin Thiele books and I went through a phase where I collected every Sweet Valley High book I could (don’t hold that against me, and perhaps that’s showing my age!)
My bookshelves are filled with John Grisham, Michael Connelly, Patricia Cornwell, Monica McInerney, Jane Green, Tamara McKinley, Belinda Alexandra, Rachael Treasure, Tony Parsons, Mark Abernethy, Jarad Henry and heaps of others.
As I try and grow as a writer, I find myself pushing outside of my normal boundaries to find out what makes a book, great. Why did I like that book, how did I relate to the characters and how can I take that over into my writing to make my books un-put-down-able.
So, here are some of the books I’m reading – I’m not going to review them – I’m just letting you know what I’m reading and if it’s captured me in the way I need to be drawn in.
I’m part of the way through The Castaways by Elin Hilderbrand and enjoying it!
