I'm looking for some book suggestions!!!! Let me have 'em!
Right now, I'm re-reading "Pride & Prejudice", which is something I haven't done in about 10 years. I read it in high school, and then again in college, but in the interim, I've only watched the movies...several (many) times.
This is the first time I've read it as a writer, and it's really interesting to notice things I've never noticed before. I'm really studying Austen's narrative technique and especially her understated witty snark. Love it!
I also need to get back to the second Lady Julia Grey mystery "Silent in the Sanctuary" by Deanna Raybourn. I left it hanging while I decided to parse Austen's prose, but it's so good, so I'll be happy to get to it. I don't normally leave a book unread in the middle...particularly a good book.
After that, I think next up is "Envy" by Anna Godbersen, the third in her deliciously scandalous "The Luxe" series about rich teenagers in New York's Gilded Age. Think "Gossip Girl" meets "The Age of Innocence." It's like a trainwreck. You can't look away. LOVE IT!
So what should I read after that? I'm open to any and all suggestions!
