Inge H. Borg – My Summer Reading List

Inge H. Borg-HeadshotIt seems to be hotter than usual for this time of year in the American South; just perfect to engage in a writer’s oft ignored other necessary activity. No, not editing, rewriting, or peddling my own titles on social media. If anything, I should be checking out those supposedly helpful titles on how better to promote one’s own books, or submit them to sites proclaiming to reach masses and masses of book-buyers—for a fee, of course. But…I am not.

Instead, I am allowing myself some “time out,” and to wallow in the guilty pleasure I engaged in since I learned the alphabet: Reading.

A couple of months ago, I drew up a plan for the summer. A few books, I already finished but want to share with you; while I am in the middle of a couple more, with others still on my Want-to-Read list.

Just Finished

(My Reviews are posted on Amazon. You can also find some on my blog

AURELIA BRAGAurelia * (Book IV of the Roma Nova series) – Alison Morton (Interesting premise)

The Sublest Soul * – Virginia Cox (Deliciously Machiavellian subtleties)

Sirocco: A French Girl comes of Age in War-Torn Algeria – Daniella A. Dahl

(A touching story about a forgotten war. I was curious, since I too wrote a “Sirocco.”)

Tidewater, A Novel of Pocahontas – Libbie Hawker (Beautifully descriptive language)

Ripple * – Tui Allen (Makes one wonder: Would the natural world be better off without us?)

In Search of a Revolution – Christoph Fischer (also read several of his other books)

Canadian Poet Jim Bennett)

Reading:

On the account by Helen HollickOn The Account (Published July 7) – Helen Hollick (Non-stop action; hard time to live in)

Bring it Close * – Hellen Hollick

Inceptio * – Alison Morton

The Spirit Room * – Marshel Paul

Samoa * – J. Robert Shaffer

* denotes a B.R.A.G. Medallion Honoree

If you detect a “stormy-seas” theme among these titles, it is true: I love the ocean, sailing, history and exotic places. Still, I would not call myself a genre-reader, but do admit to follow an author once I like the writing style, no matter the subject.

Several books on here are titles from a series, thus begging for the rest of them to be read. HELP! I am a writer; I must stop reading! Of course, I never will.
