This is what I’m reading right now.
You must read this book. I’m a huge fan of Chris Fabry. Not only am I entertained by his stories as a reader, but as a writer I admire his skill and am inspired to push further in my own writing. Almost Heaven, which just won a Christy award, is boldly told from two different points of view: An angel and a very common, but exceptional human. When I started reading it I thought to myself, of course this is how the story has to be told. If anybody can pull it off, Chris Fabry can. Right now, I’m anxious to reach the end.
This is what I’m looking forward to reading.
Bret Lott (another one of my favorite authors) calls A Watershed Year, by Susan Schoenberger, “A well-told tale of life and death and the way, when we least expect it, love can encompass us roundabout….This is a brave and moving novel.”
And this is what I’m just dying to read.
The Autobiography of Mrs. Tom Thumb, by Melanie Benajamin was just released this week and if you haven’t heard all the buzz about it, you must be trapped underneath your buckling bookshelf. The novel is narrative fiction based on the life of a real woman who was only 32 inches tall and how she made a very big mark on the world.
So there you have it. What are YOU reading or just dying to read?
