A good friend of mine asked me for a list of inspirational books that would help her to write a story about her grandmother. After compiling it for her I thought it might be helpful to post it here on my blog too. Feel free to let me know and others what books inspire you to write or get you through tough times.
Being a lover of all things books it was so much fun even therapeutic to look through my shelves. I have quite alot of them but never enough to suit me. But my family won’t let me get any more bookshelves until I weed through the ones I already have. So, since that isn’t going to happen I am forced to get more on my Kindle app! lol! I’ll show them! (evil prevails..)
Well, here’s the list. This isn’t complete and very much doubt it will ever be. So we’ll just consider it a work in progress. I am an affiliate with Amazon so help a girl out and click on the links to purchase these awesome books. I would greatly appreciate it.
ALL of her books related to Stephanie Plum! From her first one titled “ONE FOR THE MONEY” to her latest “WICKED TWENTY-SIX.” You won’t need to start from her first book to enjoy them. Each one is a new story/mystery/adventure. But I believe you’ll be hooked and will want to binge read them all!
She also wrote a book about her own writing methods it’s titled “HOW I WRITE“
Do It Scared – Finding the Courage to Face Your Fears, Overcome Adversity, and Create a Life you Love
Paula McLain – Ernest Hemingway bio through the eyes of two out of four of his wives.
“THE PARIS WIFE“- first wife Hadley Richardson
“LOVE AND RUIN” – third wife Martha Gellhorn
“BUILD YOUR OWN WRITING LIFE” (released on Jan 2)
I’ll keep looking through my bookshelves and see what others I can recommend. What a lovely hunt I had doing this list. I very much enjoyed gathering these up. Not only have these books made me laugh at life but they also taught me more about the craft I love from my heart.
