I've already finished this one (and bought a big cork board!) It was very good and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a book about writing. Yes, it is about screenwriting, but most of it still applies to novel writing. Thanks for suggesting this one Alex!
I'm in the middle of this one and it's great, too. :) Although, you probably already know that because I seem to be the only writer in existence who hasn't already read it! :)
This one is next on my list (I may start reading it before I finish On Writing, and trade off between the two.) I loved Anna Dressed in Blood and had no idea when I was reading it that there was a sequel. When I reached the end and there was wiggle room for another one I immediately got online to check it out!
I don't know a lot about this one, other than that it sounds (and looks) great. I've read some good reviews, so I'm looking forward to it.
Loved the first book in this series, too, and I can't wait to start this one and find out what happens next!
We also got a bunch of new picture books and chapter books (Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs by Mo Willems is, of course, awesome) but since those are supposed to be for the kids, not me, I'll leave them off this list.
How about you? Get any fun books for Christmas? What are you looking forward to reading in 2013?
