Since I work in a library, and I’m a writer, I read a lot. Thanks to Goodreads I can keep track of what I’ve read each year, which is fun.
Now, at the close of 2014, I wanted to share my two favorite books of the year. Drum roll, please….
That Summer, by Lauren Willig
Tailing a tabby, by Laurie Cass
Both of these stand out for me because of the amazing characters, who were likeable and genuine. They were also light-hearted, a quality I appreciate at all times. The men in the books were charming and sweet, just the kind of guys for a HEA, either now or eventually! (That Summer is a stand-alone, Tailing a Tabby is from a series, so it’ll be a while before that relationship is settled.)
I’ve been reading Lauren Willig’s “Pink Carnation” series for ages now and eagerly anticipate new entries in the series. I’m happy to say Laurie Cass launched her series with this title, so we can hope for new titles there, as well.
Look them up at the bookstore and let me know if you enjoy them as much as I did. I’m sure you will!
As for my own writing, I had a flurry of good news a few weeks ago, learning that a romantic short story, a mystery short story and a personal essay would all be appearing–in three different publications–before the end of January! Seems it always works like that–batches of acceptances. (Of course, rejections come the same way, but let’s not think about that right now!)
I’m giving books as Christmas gifts this year and hope you’ll find some under your tree, too.
