I promised to post about the books I’ve read in May and I was already slacking, right? Bad, bad girl!
So, what did I read in May?
To Kill a Warlock by H.P. Mallory
I was anxious to read this one because it’s from an indie author that is doing quite well. I confess I didn’t like it as much as I wish I did. Still, it was a nice read and an interesting story.
Characters, Emotion & Viewpoint by Nancy Kress
I’ve read this one because of the class I took (it was a requirement), but it was pretty nice. A lot of info and cool stuff to know about character building and about choosing the right POV …
Plot & Structure by James Scott Bell
I’ve read this one because people talked well about it and because I read a blog written by James Scott Bell that sparkled my interest. Very good read. It’ll certainly be helpful for future manuscripts.
Writing the Breakout Novel by Donald Maas
I saw this book in many recommendation lists and the critic of my last manuscript also told me I SHOULD read it. And I did. And I agree with the many recommendation lists I browsed through. If I ever make a lists of sorts, this one will be on the top.
And right now, I’m reading Graceling by Kristin Cashore (in paperback!). It’s taking longer than usual because I’ve been editing and revising my manuscript and because of the many holidays May holds (only in the city I live, btw). One thing I can say: I’m liking it very much!
Good readings …
