Ever since I started working on the next Rogue book, I’ve been branching out into reading completely different genres from my own (I do this to feed my reading appetite while avoiding any unintended influences in my own novel-in-progress). I’m typically a very picky reader, but my new Kindle has made branching out easier and far more affordable. I’ve found myself reading books I never would take a chance on if I found them in Barnes and Noble. One of them being a cheesy romance novel… yeah, you know, the sort you would find in the Walmart checkout?
Okay, before you judge me too much, Lakota Love Song by Madeline Baker has actually been a good read thus far. The characters are distinct and her writing is simple and smooth. Aside from several drooling moments where her detailed descriptions have seared his “rippling back muscles” into my memory, I’m really enjoying the plot and how its unfolding (plus, Baker’s Blue Hawk character is quite attractive… *sigh* don’t tell Charming).
What about you? What books have you read (or have been reading) lately?
