Since I turned in my novel at the first of this month, I have a little extra time to catch up on reading. Funny that reading voraciously is what drove me to write, and now with writing, I hardly have time to read!
Finished reading Submerged by Dani Pettrey, and immediately downloaded another book that someone recommended—Susan May Warren’s You Don’t Know Me. Just got my copy of Rachel Hauck’s Once Upon a Prince. We won’t even talk about what is already on my Kindle and overflowing on my bookshelves and next to my bed that I haven’t read yet.
I’ve mentioned this before but nowadays I often read the sample chapters first to decide if I want to buy the whole thing. I can’t tell you how many novels I’ve started that I wished I hadn’t bought because I just can’t keep reading. Can’t finish.
I read the sample chapters of You Don’t Know Me and was immediately pulled in by the writer’s voice and attention to detail. I totally related to this character. I read that book in about two sittings and cried my eyes out at the end. It’s one that resonates with me for a lot of reasons, particularly the whole mother/daughter teenager angst thing. Now, to start on Once Upon a Prince this week. I love Rachel Hauck’s writing as well, and I’m looking forward to the journey.
