I'm also going to TRY to venture outside my typical comfort zone and try some new genres... I did read an excellent book on leadership that blew my friggin' mind. AMAZE-ING!
I've noticed that, since I have a limited time, my reading abilities have sped up... I mean, I'm reading at a much quicker tempo these days.
I've just finished a book by Tasha Alexander called Tears of Pearl. Her writing technique is intriguing as she develops her characters and storyline through the excessive use of dialogue, while painting descriptions of their surroundings with narrative text. The book was ok - meaning it wasn't great and it wasn't bad. I always try to take a stance but I'm sitting on the fence whether I enjoy her writing abilities at the moment. Her story, presumably suspenseful, was lacking. Her attempt to throw romanticism in on the action seemed half-hearted. Simply, it was (to me of course) an underdeveloped romance novel with a few murders/case solving thrown in. Not really my kind of book. However, I may venture to read one more of her novels in order to decide if it is her writing style or choice of plot that turns me away.
Now that I'm on a new path for reading what authors or titles shall I grab next time I'm at the library?
Good Times & God Bless,
