Special Holiday Recommended Reading List 2015

I generally post my recommended reading list a month or three after I’ve done the reading. Which means that all of the holiday stories that I read get recommended in January or February. In 2011, I decided to do a compilation of past holiday recommends so that you can get them for the appropriate season.

Recommended Reading List: July, 2014

Spent most of July writing and then collapsing on the sofa in front of the TV when I was done. Dean and I binged on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, loved it, and for me, that took some of my writing time. (One more episode! Just one more!) Plus I had to line edit a volume of Fiction River, and that also took my reading time. […]

Recommended Reading List: August, 2012

Characters I didn’t like saying disagreeable things about other characters I didn’t like. I’ve encountered this four times in “the book of the […]

Recommended Reading List: November 2011

I’m doing my best to catch up on the Recommended Reading lists, so that I can be on schedule in 2012. Here’s the good stuff I read in November.

As […]

December 2010 Recommended Reading List

I know, I know.  I read the Christmas stories before Christmas, to prep myself for the season, but I’m telling you about them here. Ah, well.  Buy the issues/books now and save the stories for next year…. As you can tell from the list, I went on a short story binge in December. For some reason I hadn’t read a lot of short fiction in […]

August 2010 Recommended Reading List

As you can tell, I wrote this at the beginning of September.  And I’m posting late. I’d planned to post before I left.  But here goes…. Boy, I read a lot in August.  Boy, did I not like most of it.  Including a mystery novel by an acclaimed writer whose work I had read before. This book was a “breakout” novel that won a variety […]
