Recent Favorites April 2017
Absolutely, Positively, by Jayne Anne Krentz
Fallen Empire Series by Lindsay Buroker
Emperor’s Edge by Lindsay Buroker
This steampunk fantasy series caught me totally off guard in a good way. Seriously up there as one of my all time favorites. If you like fantasy with a little slow burning love on the side, this series is truly epic and filled with wonderful, quirky characters.
Among many things I love about these books, the setting of the American Pacific Northwest is so awesome and refreshing.
Some All-Time Favorites & Classics
Sharon Shinn’s Samaria series
Orson Scott Card – Pretty much EVERYTHING
L E Modesitt’s Recluce series
Pride & Prejudice, of course
My First Favorites
These were the books that first got me started on fantasy fiction, borrowed from friends. I discovered sci-fi later on my own in my family’s regular trips to Barnes & Noble.
Anne McCaffery Dragonriders of Pern series, especially The White Dragon
If You want to Write, by Brenda Ueland
An inspiring book about the real truths of making art of all kinds.
Felicia Day’s You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost)
A celebration of geekdom, procrastination, and creation. I hope I’m someday half as self-actualized as Felicia is.
The War of Art
If you want to write / create art / start a business, but never seem to, and you don’t know why, read this. A masterwork. Turning Pro is also good, and both books can be bought directly from Black Irish Books.
What are you reading? I’m always looking for new stories, especially in sci-fi, fantasy, and romance. =)
