Authors and books I love
I read almost as much as I write
Which is a lot. I like to read all different kinds of books: literary fiction, commercial fiction, speculative, historical, paranormal, romance, thriller, mystery, chick-lit, even genres within the YA (Young Adult), NA (New Adult), and Adult categories. And like any loyal book lover, I’m brainwashing my kids to love books too, so we read a lot of children’s books.
Here’s a glimpse at my favourites, in no particular order. Each struck me in a unique way, some appealing to the reader in me, some the writer, but all great reads….
The Time Traveller’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger (my absolute fav!)
The Disappeared by Kim Echlin
