I admit, as a writer, I’m not that big of a reader. I’ve always been scared that I would rip off someone’s idea or something. But there’s a few books and writers that I have come to love over the years and thought I would share four of my favorite books. If you’ve never heard of them, you should check them out.
Good In Bed
I read this book nearly 20 years ago and it is still one of my favorites. Jennifer Weiner is probably my favorite writer (besides Jane Austen). The main character is plus size which is sometimes rare to find in fiction, especially back in 2002 when it was published. It hit home with me and I found a little of myself in Cannie.
Kill The Boy Band
Don’t worry about the title – we’re not going to go do anything drastic to the Backstreet Boys or Big Time Rush. A friend saw this in Target, bought it and told me I had to read it, so we sat reading it together while texting one another. It’s a quick read and a GOOD read. It’s all about being a fangirl for a boyband. In a way it reminds me of that ’70s movie “I Wanna Hold Your Hand” about the fans who go to The Beatles hotel – except today. There’s some twists and they are good.
Sex and the City
Shocking, huh? Yes I’ve read the book that one of my favorite television shows have been based on. And while there’s no Sarah Jessica Parker in there, Carrie Bradshaw is and she’s just as great on paper as she is on the screen.
Grace and the Fever
I admit, this book is more for teen readers, but for fangirls all alike. It starts like all fan fictions start – she meets her idol randomly and it takes off from there. But it’s a little different than fiction with characters that really come off the page.
