Now that I’m taking a small break from writing, I get to read for fun again!
I’m going to spend TWO WHOLE WEEKS lounging after work, in a pair of new onesies, with ebooks that are on my ‘must read’ list.
So I wanted to share with you all where I get my book fix these days.
In short, straight from the source (when I can)!
It just makes the experience more nostalgic, more enjoyable for me. Since I grew up in a time where book fairs, bookmobiles, and visiting local bookstores were the norm, I love finding my books this way. Nowadays it is almost unheard of, so I want to shoutout the authors and groups that are making it possible for me to do just that in between my writing breaks.
First up is Brookelyn Mosley!
I found her work while scouting for Romance authors to interview for The Stories Station Podcast and their whole vibe lured me in. As a fan of AA stories, novellas, and coffee mugs, it didn’t take long for me to rack up a nice wish list of books and merch over on her website, lol
Next up is Black Love Books!
I FLOVE that they have not only AA Romance, but IR and Multicultural Romances – AND in different sub genres too!
My only not so good critique about this website is that there seems to not be an option to buy the eBooks directly from the author. But that’s okay! What I plan to do is find the authors online, see if I can buy the book from them, and then after reading their stories I’ll go back to BLB and leave my reviews there (since that is how I came across the story).
So, that is how I like to unwind from writing – by reading!
What are some of your favorite books to read these days? Let me know in the comments and if I like them, I’ll be sure to let you know!
“Continue reading, continue writing, continue loving the process.”
