Favorite Books and Authors

Every writer learns about writing, in part, through reading.  I have certain books that I love dearly, and certain authors that I read obsessively. The more I teach, the more I notice what authors do when they write.  I love authors who pay attention to sentence structure and create variety in writing.

Though I would never shame anyone, there is a benefit to reading "bad writing."  Careful analysis of what works is as important as studying what isn't working in a piece.  Sometimes I just abandon books, but other times, I push through and finish. I want to know from start to finish why I think there are problems.

Friend me on Goodreads.com (Tess Haranda) - I try to keep my reading lists as up to date as possible. I also love audiobooks and have such a growing list of books to be read.
