Have you ever walked into a bookstore determined to buy a book you haven’t read, but you don’t end up reading it? I know I have. My “to read” list grows all the time as I discover new authors or even old ones I’ve read before. Here is a brief list of books I keep meaning to read but haven’t.Continue reading “Books I Keep Meaning to Read (But Haven’t)”
I really enjoyed this novella. It was a cute regency romance with characters I kept cheering for to have their own happy ending. I love Theodore’s character arc and the depth of love he has for Eleanor. A sweet, clean romance that I definitely recommend!
I’ve only started to get serious about my writing in the last year, and what a year it has been! I had attended an author event for Sarah M. Eden, although I didn’t really know who she was at the time. It was then that I realized I didn’t want to write for fun anymore. I sat down that very night, scrolled through Pinterest to find something to spark a book idea, and thus, Bloodborn was forged!
I loved this book. Period. Did I enjoy the movie as well? You bet! I’m one of those people who can still enjoy the movie adaptations of a book. This is the kind of material I would read on my own as well and not just as an assignment in class.
One thing many books I read in high school had in common was that they were all depressing. (Okay, so maybe not all of them are, but I’d say a good chunk of them are downers). Why do highschoolers need to be subjected to such a low and depressed state? Why not broaden our horizons and expose us to books that are uplifting or interesting? I would have loved to read Jane Austen or something more modern like Brandon Sanderson. Instead, I had to read tales of woe in Romeo and Juliet and murder in Of Mice and Men.
Although there are many I could touch up on, here are just a few of the books I didn’t care for in high school.
30,000 words and an entire book later, I finally finished Bloodscourge! I stopped halfway through to write a regency romance, and came back to it right after to finish the final 30,000 words. Now the question is…do I edit the book, or should I write the 2nd in my regency series…
Oh dear, regency it is!
