I am not a book snob. Oh I love classics and I loath bad writing as much as the next person but I refuse
to believe that all the good writing has been written. I believe firmly that mediocrity is a threat to modern literature but I also believe that instead of just pointing out the bad we should be openly searching for the good. And that is why I am creating myself this year long challenge for myself.
I am going to try to read at least one modern book a week and review it here. to make it easy for myself I am making a clear definition of modern for myself If the book was written before I was alive it doesn't count. So anything written after 1997 is fair game.
My goal is to try and find as many good, well written, clean modern books as I can. I am a writer and I do not believe that my art is dead. I have always been of the impression that good books are hard to find and I'm trying to prove to myself that that is not true if you just look.
I am a Christian, raised in a conservative household; I have a deep seated love for good, well written books. I am a writer who studies her craft. I am not easy to please. But good books are out there. I just read one tonight. So tune in on Thursday for my review of Mary Robinette Kowal's Glamour in Glass. Warning. There will be fangirling.
Don't forget to be awesome!
