What are you reading Thursday - Stephanie Newton
What am I reading? A good question. A little over a week ago, the answer would’ve been, “My manuscript, for the four thousandth time.” As soon as that baby hit the post office box, though, I picked up my Kindle and opened the first of my list that had been accruing since the writing blitz began.
Elizabeth Lowell’s Death Echo: I’ve been an Elizabeth Lowell fan since I read her western historical years ago. I love the St. Kilda Consulting series, too. Always great tough heroes, always great romantic suspense.
Joanna Bourne’s The Forbidden Rose and The Spymaster’s Lady: I’d heard wonderful things about this series and I wasn’t disappointed. The writing was so, so beautiful. I’m a fan.
Tana French’s In the Woods: This Edgar award-winning novel is beautifully complicated. I can’t say that it ended the way I would’ve liked, but it was an unforgettable read!
Wednesday, I’ll be flying to Orlando for the RWA conference. I’ll be coming home and buckling down to work but for the trip, I must have some reading material. I’m thinking maybe a good historical romance might fit the bill…something along the lines of Loretta Chase’s Last Night’s Scandal. Or I have Maggie Stiefvater’s Shiver and Linger in my TBR pile. What do you think? What should I read next? What genre should I choose?
