Fresh FIction Box Not To Miss

Sandi Shilhanek | A Good Yarn

March 8, 2009

I am fortunate enough to be a reviewer, and have the opportunity to read some of my favorite author’s work early. This weekend I’m indulging myself with Summer On Blossom Street by Debbie Macomber.

As I read I find myself wishing that I knew a place like A Good Yarn, and a person like Lydia Goetz. To me that is the sign of a good writer…one who puts their reader right into the story.

This got me to thinking, is there a book or character who has struck a personal chord with you, and you find yourself wondering what you would do if you were a part of the book or a particular character?

So while I’d love to be a part of the community who shares their lives at A Good Yarn, I’m not sure I’d be successful at the knitting aspect of it. Which book do you see yourself as part of? Is there a certain character you’d like to be?

Until next week happy page turning to all.

    I don’t see myself as a character in any book. I like to read, but to me they are just stories hopefully well written with terrific characters. I don’t get incensed about characters behaving one way or the other though a character doing something stupid thing tends to annoy me as it would in real life. And I do like the good guys/gals to come out on top. But I don’t understand why folks claim characters as their mates, etc. and I don’t want to lead the life of any character or live where they live.

    I guess I’m just too darned fact based to imagine myself as someone I’m not! LOL
