If you have spent any time on my website, you might notice a page is missing. I recently made the decision to delete the “What I’m Reading” page. I kept forgetting to update it, so it wasn’t really serving a purpose. Instead, I’m going to focus on posting a “What I’m Reading” blog entry once a week. I read so many books each week that this should be interesting and a way to increase my posts. As some of you know, I struggle to remember to make posts, and often my depression prevents me from even starting.
My plan moving forward is to make this post on Sundays.
So let’s talk about what I am currently reading.
I try to always have a writing manual in my current reading pile. As an author, I know there is always more for me to learn. As an MFA student, the list of books I should read to improve my craft is a mile long. This particular book, Save the Cat! Writes a Novel comes up a lot in MFA conversations, so I decided it was probably past time that I read this.
I’m currently making my way through The Christmas Tree Ranch series by Janet Dailey. I’m currently reading #4 – Santa’s Sweetheart. I will be picking up #5 – Somebody Like Santa, from my local library later this week. The series follows a new couple in each book as they overcome obstacles and find happily ever after just in time for Christmas. I love holiday books like this, so it’s no surprise this is a new favorite that I will probably revisit every December!
Chef’s Kiss by TJ Alexander has been on my TBR pile for a bit now, and I figured it’s probably time to sit down and finish it. I love everything to do with cooking and professional kitchens, including TV cooking competitions. So, this book holds a lot of appeal for me. I’m excited to devour it.
