There is a certain pattern to my writing life: put simply, there are times when I’m writing, and times when I’m not writing. Sometimes the not-writing comes in the form of the demon writer’s block that perches upon me like some hideous gargoyle. But other times, like right now, it’s because I’m taking a little break from my current work-in-progress and reading as much as I possibly can. So here is my current reading list:
The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins
Graceling, Kristin Cashore
The Hobbit, J.R.R. Tolkien
The Phantom Tollbooth, Norton Juster
Rose Daughter, Robin McKinley
Skellig, David Almond
It’s an eclectic list, including some titles I feel really guilty for not having read (you’re all familiar with my book-related guilt by now, I’m sure). If there are others you feel I should move to the top of my list, please let me know. Now that I’ve actually written this list on my blog, I had better deliver and actually READ these books! I have a tendency to get distracted with other titles, like the pile of books I’ve purchased for my own collection and still have yet to read…Here’s hoping I manage to tackle at least a few on this list. I’ll keep you posted.
