From The Broke and the Bookish: Ten Books That Will Be In My Beach Bag This Summer...Until I go to Barnes and Noble and hear the siren song of the buy 2 get 1 free table.
The Fire in Fiction by Donald Maass - I bought this at DFW Con a month ago and have been reading it in fits and starts. I need to dive into it.
Calling me Home by Julie Kibler - another purchase from DFW Con.
Ashenden, or The British Agent by W. Somerset Maugham - part of my Reading Hitchcock series
The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway
Side Effects May Vary by Julie Murphy - I've never met Murphy personally, but she's friends with writers in my workshop. Plus, the book has received good reviews.
Landline by Rainbow Rowell - I should probably add Attachments to the list as well.
The Smoke at Dawn by Jeff Shaara - Civil War historical fiction
The Lumineers by Elizabeth Catton - the 2013 Booker Prize Winner has been on my bedside table for three weeks, getting dusty. I'm 100 pages in and am enjoying it...?
Silas Marner by George Eliot - for my 23 Short Classics Book Club on Goodreads
Whack Job by Kendel Lynn - Second in the Elliot Lisbon series, and a book I gave away a couple of weeks ago!
