I just finished two widely different books:
The Tiniest Tiger by Joanne L. McGonagle and
Bravo! Greatness of Italian Music by Historian Guy Graybill
I thought both of them were excellent in their respective ways! Please take a look at my reviews coming up...
Oh yes, these are books I've reviewed professionally. At the same time, I normally have a fiction book that I'm reading. One of my favorite fiction authors if Robert B. Parker, writer of the Spenser series, et.al.
Anytime I'm working with an author who needs help writing dialogue, I suggest they buy one or two of Parker's books--any of them will do. His dialogue is clean and refreshing, no matter which characters he's using.
I read Edenville Owls, a young adult's book recently. As soon as I started, I knew the book was written in honor of he and his wife when they were young...how cool!
Yep, I read young adult fiction, especially by a favorite author. Who knows what you might learn?!
