IMHO it is impossible to be a writer if you aren't a reader. Reading is probably the most important part of the process.
I'm taking a couple of weeks break from writing my teenage love story, For The Love of Lambs, as it's being read and commented on by some of my fabulous SCBWI writing friends. This space gives me the chance to read, as I find it impossible to read whilst I'm editing.
As you know, I don't review books on my website (you can follow me on Goodreads where I do review the books I've enjoyed), but I often get asked for book recommendations.
The best website is: My Book Corner They give completely honest and unbiased reviews, only featuring the books they love. It has everything from babies to young adult books and is really easy to use.
If you're looking to buy books for yourself or others, I strongly advise that this is the place you start (not Amazon!)
Welcome to my blog, a place where you can keep up to date with what I am up to.
