I’ve been doing a lot of reading lately. There’s a reason for it. The more I read, the more I sit down and write. I can’t have one without the other. I can’t write when I’m not reading because I run myself dry mentally. And I can’t read without some weird spark of creativity that slams right into me.
My reading tastes change a lot. But I decided to go back and reread a few books that I absolutely loved when I first started reading urban fantasy. I started with Ilona Andrews. I picked up the first Kate Daniels book and a week later, I’m completely caught up with it. And it’s not a small series.
I was still craving more, so I moved on to their Innkeeper series, then Hidden Legacy, and just recently finished the first book in the Iron Covenant series. Yes, I binge read like I binge write. But that goes with my whole “can’t have one without the other” thing.
If you guys haven’t read Ilona Andrews, I highly recommend anything they write. Such awesomeness cannot possibly be human.
I’m thinking about rereading Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files now…
