The TBR Pile
People who love to read usually have a TBR (To Be Read) pile–I keep mine in my office, which probably isn’t smart, because when I stall out on my own writing I’m tempted to end my work day early and dive into my reading.
As many of you know, I recently branched out into writing women’s fiction along with my Harlequin romances. I’ve been a lifelong reader of romances–all genres, but until I sold The Promise Of Forgiveness (March 2016) to Penguin Books I had only read a few women’s fiction books over the years. Now that I’m writing in the genre I’ve been like a kid in a candy shop discovering all kinds of new authors.
I wanted to share two books with you that I’ve recently read that I think you might enjoy. Both of these authors are excellent writers. And the covers are beautiful!
Dear Carolina by Kristy Woodson Harvey~Southern Women’s Fiction. This is a heartfelt story with a baby in the middle of it.
Secrets of a Charmed Life by Susan Meisnnner~current day with a flashback to 1940’s England and the evacuation of London’s children to foster homes in the rural countryside. If you like a little history in your books then you’ll really enjoy this one.
Do you read women’s fiction books? I’d love to know why or why not!
