Any book where I don't edit in my head makes me happy. One of the downfalls of being an author/editor.
Garden Spells (Sarah Addison Allen) a wonderful first book in a series. Nobody write magical realism as well as this author.
Illusionary by Desiree Williams made me so happy - I loved the world, the beautiful message, and the way the relationship between the main characters developed.
Lights of the Veil - Patty Metzer.
North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell... because Margaret and Mr. Thornton finally wind up together. And I adore Mr. Thornton.
Pippa of Lauramore by Shari L. Tapscott
Katy Huth Jones
The Beast of Talesend by Kyle Robert Shultz
Laura A. Grace
The Girl Who Could See by Kara Swanson.
Bethany A. Jennings
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
Where the Mountain Meets the Moon by Grace Lin (Hm, I guess I really liked this one)
Writing books that helped unlock some secrets for me. How to Write Action Adventure helped me discover what I love to write. If You Can Talk, You Can Write helped me gain confidence, as did On Writing by Stephen King. And i got great tips & tools from The Art of War for Writers by James Scott Bell and a character archetype book.
