All Over The Map
I’ve been on a bit of a reading binge for the past few weeks, which means not much time for writing. Below are a few books I’ve finished recently, and as you’ll see, the genres couldn’t be more wide-spread.
I learned something from each and every one of them though, and that’s the whole point of writing isn’t it? To pass along some piece of information that somehow changed your life in the hopes that someone else will find it useful too. At least that’s my goal when I do sit down and write, which I’ll be getting back to now that I’ve had my fill.
My Husband’s Sweethearts by Bridget Asher – a great work of fiction that will leave you believing that everything happens for a reason
Committed by Elizabeth Gilbert – very different vibe than Eat, Pray, Love, but an interesting read if you’ve ever wondered about how marriage has evolved over the ages
The Secret Daughter by Shilpi Somaya Gowda – an absolute must read, and that’s all I’ll say because I don’t want to give anything away
Flirting with Faith by Joan Ball – a work of non-fiction about going from non-believer to faithful disciple and how the process changed her life
Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott – by far one of the best books about writing I’ve ever read, and a must read for all aspiring authors
