Writer’s Block

November 06, 2017 | by

Welcome to NaNoWriMo! For any of you  suffering from writer’s block, or those who consider themselves to be better readers than writers (ahem!), I’ve compiled a list of books full of excellent writing for your consideration.

The Fortunes
by Peter Ho Davies (09/12/17)
9781328745484 | Houghton Mifflin Harcourt | RAI
Paperback | Price: $20.99

Sorry-not-sorry, but I’m never going to be done talking about how much I loved this book of linked stories, exploring Chinese American identity!

The Savage
A Novel
by Frank Bill (11/14/17)
9780374534417 | Farrar Straus & Giroux | RAI
Paperback | Price: $21.00

Not for the faint of heart, but Frank Bill’s writing is so intense and visceral, you may feel like you’ve been punched in the head by the end of this one. In a good way!

In the Cage
by Kevin Hardcastle (09/12/17)
9781771961479| Biblioasis | UTP
Paper| Price: $19.95

This is another dark read, but Kevin Hardcastle’s sentences are so exactly perfect that I think all aspiring writers should give this one a close read.

In Case I Go
by Abdou, Angie (09/11/17)
9781551527031 | Arsenal Pulp Press | UTP
Paperback | Price: $17.95

Ancient graveyards, ghosts, and small town BC? A perfect book to cozy up during the dark and stormy days of November!

Really, with so many great books out right now, nobody could blame you for prioritizing reading over writing, right?!
