Fantasy Book Recommendations

I just ran across a tweet for this post recommending other books to people who like The Name of the Wind, which as you can see from the book list on the right side of website, is what I’m reading and enjoying now.  The Lies of Locke Lamora sounds very intriguing to me.  I like fantasy.  I like Ocean’s 11.  Could be good.  Please let me know if you’ve read any of the listed books and what you thought of them.

Next up for me will be some self-improvement book but then it will be back to some dessert reading.  Gimme something sweet to read!

On Writing by Stephen King

Here is my review of On Writing as I promised here.

I know that he’s written a bajillion books, but I don’t think I’ve ever read any of Stephen King’s work before this book.  I don’t care to read horror fiction and his It miniseries on TV soured me to his work.  After all that cool build up it was a stupid spider?!

Shortly after I secured the domain name for this website I figured out that writing was a big part of it and that it would be worth my time to try and improve.  A quick search lead me to recommendations for On Writing so I thought I’d give it a shot.

It’s a short fast reading book that made me laugh many times.  Of course there is good information on how to write but King wraps it in the story of his life, saving the reader from a dry textbook experience.  Even if I didn’t learn a thing from the book,  I would still want to read it for the fun of it and I bet you will too.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who can stand a few cuss words.

Do you have any other books on writing that you’d recommend?
