You know how stories are told from different perspectives: first and third-person. I already knew my favorite view. But a few days ago, I realized more than ever the perspective I prefer when reading books and how hard it is to switch.
Entertainment abounds. It’s so prolific, you can’t escape from Escapism; it’s everywhere! We unplug so much, we may need to unplug from unplugging. As I considered the options for a monthly subscription service, I was reminded how inundated we are with endless entertainment.
Every now and then, my dream of writing fiction shimmies back up from the crevices between the couch cushions of my mind. With my recent resurgence in reading fiction (a new genre too), I’ve also started to think of creating my own worlds of escapism.
Third time’s a charm? Maybe. But I think both the author and the protagonist came into their stride with this book, Death by Team Building. The strength of the writing and the confidence of the main character were bright while the setting of the story was cold and cramped. A cozy mystery that was not so cozy.
I’ve missed reading. I started off the year doing about a book a month, but things got extra busy this Summer. I read only one short book in the last few months, so I’m behind in my annual goodreads reading challenge. But I think I’m gonna catch up.
If you like to read fiction, you probably have a favorite genre to stick with. For me, it’s mostly Sci-Fi and Fantasy. (Is Dystopia its own genre?) Last week, I finished reading a book outside my norm: a Cozy Mystery. It was good! In fact, I’ve already started reading book two in the series.
