Where do you go for creative inspiration?
Yesterday, I popped into Barnes and Noble and ended up spending a couple hours thumbing through some new releases, skimming through some old favorites and fantasizing about owning a library as big as the bookstore. What? A girl can dream, right?
These are a few of the books I found interesting and the reasons I know I was supposed to find them for my inspiration (if you’ve read any of these, let me know, please).
1. A Strangeness In My Mind by Orphan Pamuk. I love reading books by Nobel Prize writers. My goal is to be one of them someday. For now, I read them for research.
4. The Longevity Book by Cameron Diaz is in the same theme. I loved her last book and can’t wait to delve into this one too. It’s all about being healthy not just for now but working towards a more sustainable lifestyle. That’s key!
5. Reading the blurb for this book called The Vegetarian by Han Kang made me think about my own story, The Unwilling Vegetarian which appears in It’s Complicated
My story is about a man who’s a vegetarian even though he doesn’t want to be and the impact of his meat-free choices on his relationships. Read the blurb for this book and tell me you don’t think the same thing.
What’s going on in your reading life?
