What resonates with you from your reading?
I read a lot of fantasy and non-fiction lately, and there used to be a time when I read more realistic fiction. My tastes have definitely changed over the years, and I think it is because I am realizing what resonates with me; I am moved by well-crafted works of fiction.
Not only am I moved by well-crafted scenes, plot, and dialogue, I also love the unique quality that the fantasy genre has to offer. For me, the technique of a well-written book resonates with me. I am moved by the deep worlds created by Rowling, Tolkien, and Martin, and I’m excited by the dark prose and unique voice of Gaiman and Maas.
Let me know what resonates with you! What type of reading moves you? Which authors just do it right?
7-Day Reading Challenge Update
Today is Day Three of the #ReadWithCurtis 7-Day Reading Challenge, and I’m currently reading Tolkien’s Ring by David Day, illustrated by Alan Lee. I am also reading short stories out of the book Fragile Things by Neil Gaiman. I had these authors in mind today as I wrote my response to today’s prompt.
Tolkien’s Ring examines Tolkien’s work and its relationship with mythology and classical literature. There are gorgeous illustrations in this book.
Fragile Things is a collection of short works by Neil Gaiman. This book has re-inspired me to look at the relationship between my own reading and writing.
