Reading to Make Myself Write

Hey everyone,

If any of you have heard me lament recently, you will know that I have had trouble producing my usual output on my works-in-progress. I think, in general, I'm very tired. The kids have started school and we're all adjusting to our new schedule.

So...

To combat this before I have settled down to read for a while in order to get my muse cooking. Anyone have any good book recommendations for me?

Best
RR

Try something out of the box, Rebecca! Try the Pride of Chanur by CJ Cherryh. I've read this book three times, at least. I want to be Pyanfur.

Jacqueline Carey. Start with Kushiel's Dart. Epic fantasy with a strong romantic theme and some BDSM hints. Hypnotic, textured prose and fascinating world-building for an alternate European history.

Strangers--by Barbara Elsborg.
The Hunger Games--Suzanne Collins
Anything Donna Kaufman.
The Dresden Files--Dead Beat in particular--Jim Butcher
National Geograpic--They had a fantastic article on Bionics a while back. Some great ideas can be spawned from reading NG. It's a favorite indulgence.

When all else fails, the tabloids, because they can make you laugh, but they can also show you what bizarre things grab people's attention.
