Today is National Book Lovers Day and I thought it would be fun to talk a little about books I love.
- My all-time favorite book is The Red Dragon by Thomas Harris. I had been a reader all my life but that was the first book that made me want to write one.
- Eclipse Bay by Jayne Ann Krentz is the first romance novel I read. Until I read that book I was a horrible literary snob who believed I was too good for “those romance novels”. But I read that book, and I was hooked. That was when I knew I didn’t just want to write a book I wanted to write a HEA type romance novel.
- Lora Leigh’s Breed series is next. That series opened my world up to include shifter books, and I fell in love. That is when I knew that I didn’t just want to write a HEA romance but I wanted to write a paranormal romance novel.
- And finally Crossroads by Riley Hart. It wasn’t my first MM Romance but yeah you guessed it. It was the book made me realize I didn’t just want to write a paranormal romance novel, but I wanted to write a MM paranormal romance novel. And no Crossroads isn’t paranormal. I loved that book so much I started with just contemporary MM romance, but trust me paranormal is coming.
Tell me… what books do you love?
