Towards the tail end of October, The Writer’s Circle posted a photo on Facebook that contained a 30-Day Writing Challenge. I liked the questions and I liked the idea of sharing a little bit more information about me (as opposed to my strange Internet reading habits), I decided to join in! If you’re participating – go ahead and leave a comment with your links below!
8. A book you love and one you didn’t
One of my favorite books is Tregaron’s Daughter by Madeleine Brent (a pseudonym for British writer Peter O’Donnell). It’s a book that came out of a box of books my dad bought at an auction when I was a kid. Tregaron’s Daughter was published in 1971 and is a gothic-type mystery/romance set in Cornwall. I cannot tell you what brings me back to that book, but I typically re-read it every year. There’s something about the setting and the characters that keeps me coming back, like visiting with an old friend.
A book that I didn’t love … I tried to get into J.D. Robb’s “Death” series (and again – Robb is a pseudonym for Nora Roberts, who I typically adore). I couldn’t get past the first few pages of Ms. Roberts’ futuristic suspense novel. I’m a sci-fi fan, but that’s something I’d rather watch than read, I guess.
