I looked at the bookshelf next to my bed last and realized that I'm currently reading three vastly different books at the same time: The Maltese Falcon, The Dog Stars and The Last of the Mohicans.
Underneath this stack were the two most recent books I've finished reading: Allegiant and Sea of Glory.
Other books I've read recently include: Under Heaven's Banner, Last Train to Paradise, The Maid's Version, Salinger, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle and Wiseguy.
Aside from making me feel better about being addicted to The Walking Dead (see "Zombies and Writing"), I started wondering what my current choice in books says about me as a person and as a writer (which are pretty much impossible to separate, so....). A girl in Barnes and Noble the other day asked me what types of books I like to read and I wasn't sure how to respond. Basically I answered "good ones."
So what does my reading list say about me? I tried to break it down to see.....
Yeah, hmmm.... if anyone wants to take a crack at what these books say about me, I'd love to hear it. Please leave your ideas in the comments. And if you happen to analyze your own reading lists and come up with something conclusive, I'd love to know about it as well. Happy Reading!
