I completely forgot that yesterday was Wednesday, so I’m a day late with my update, although there is not much to tell at the moment.
I didn’t write. Again. I’ve got loads of ideas, and I try to make a note of all of them, but other things like family and course assignments take precedence.
And this blog. It might not look like much, only posting Character Inspiration, Setting Inspiration and Story Prompts for most of the week, but they require research to give proper copyright acknowledgment and sometimes it does take quite a while to find that info.
Need a few pointers of where to start finding what books to read for the Read Harder, Popsugar 2015 or Study. Read. Write’s60 Books Challenges?
Let me help you!
The titles compiled below are meant to help you get started on the challenges to give you an idea where to look and which books to consider. For each category, there are hundreds of options in every language though I stuck to English for my list.
If you know any other examples that simply SHOULD be included, please let me know in the comments. Please note that depending on your location and language, the titles, availability and whether the books are banned or not may differ from this list.
