I was reading a blog post from one of my favorite bloggers, who was talking about the books she was reading as research for her next WIP, and it got me thinking about my next WIP, and how I should probably start doing some research too!
So, I got on google/goodreads and found four books I am going to read to get more ideas, a feel of the cultural vibe, and more impute on the voice I want to get across. I also realized that my working titled “Dearest Evangeline,” is not all that original, so that will have to go back to the drawing board!
I also went crazy and ordered hard copies of these books, that way I can highlight poignant passages, put post-it’s on the pages, and whatnot. It’s a lot easier for me to have the physical books with my notes at my fingertips than to take notes and make hilightions on my Nook. A lot of people were transitioning to e-readers in college,and I just could not get behind that. Anyway! So here are the books I got, I’m pretty excited about it.
