When I'm reading or writing, I enjoy lighting a candle
and sipping a cup of tea.
There is something comforting, focusing, about these rituals. I find I am able to give myself over completely to the world I am entering.
I experienced a fascinating new world in LIAR, by Justine Larbalestier. I reserved it at my favorite local bookstore after reading the fantastic reviews.
I want to avoid revealing any spoilers, so I will keep this simple--READ THIS BOOK.
It is an amazing work of fiction. The book is distributed as a YA novel, but I found it sophisticated in plotting and character. After reading it, I had the same feeling I had after seeing THE SIXTH SENSE the first time--wow. I wanted to reread this book right away, re examine the "clues" and re experience the writing.
I enjoyed it just as much the second time, reading it in my quiet corner.
Reading wonderful fiction inspires me. Time to work on my own world-building.
Have a great weekend.
