Copy a few lines from your current read into the reply box below. I often get great ideas for my TBR list from this source.
Casey, a wannabe writer and currently a waitress at a popular, upscale restaurant is telling a co-worker about her recent date:
“I tell Harry about the date at lunch the next day.
‘Good heavens,’ he says, ‘Is that what it’s like with you writers? [He uses] the word ‘snug ‘ and you’re mad in love?
‘I’m not in love.’
‘The man is in his forties with two bloody children…’ “
Yes, this is a romance, but it is so much more. Struggling writers, loss of parent, mother-daughter relationships–it’s all there laid out by the author for the reader’s perusal. The writing is lovely, the dialog witty, and it has the potential to be a “darned good read.”
