Hello and happy Tuesday. Hope you are saying safe! Thanks so much for joining us!
This week’s challenge come from the amazing Christina Alexandra:
“I can’t imagine a man really enjoying a good book and reading it only once.” ~ C.S. Lewis Do you reread books? Are there certain books you reread at certain times of the year?
Absolutely. But it’s not limited to any specific time of year.
Every time I re-read one of my favorites, I discover something new. As an author, I craft every word that goes into my books. As a reader, sometimes I skim parts or read when I’m tired and miss things. That is the pleasure of re-reading.
My favorite author to read over and over is Kathleen Woodiwiss. Her attention to detail is amazing and her characters are so well-drawn, I feel as if I know them. Her work never loses its freshness.
Others I love are Jude Deveraux (The Velvet Series) and Nora Roberts (The Key Series). I have also re-read the “Twilight” series and “Hunger Games”. In all of these, the attention to detail and the wonderful characters pull me in every time. And they inspire me to be a better writer.
There are so many great books available and incredible authors to discover. Reading is such a great gift. Every time I pick up a book or open my Kindle, I go to another place, with other people and adventures. Sometimes, I like to re-visit and sometimes I move on to discover new favorites. Reading is a never-ending joy!
Now, let’s hop over to the fabulous Brenda Margriet. But first, check out her just released new contemporary, “AFTER WORDS”:
Leeza Boychuk, a 48-year-old bookstore manager with a philandering ex-husband and a failing business, discovers a time-stained WW2 diary and becomes engrossed with returning it to the soldier’s family. She enlists the help of Gavin Fletcher, an enigmatic widower, which leads to an unexpected romance.
