Every writer starts out with a love of reading. I read everything from young adult to erotic romance. But my favorite are thrillers. Karin Slaughter, Chelsea Cain, Lisa Gardner. I love becoming immersed in a good thriller until I’m drowning in it, gasping for air, my legs cramping up from being curled up in a chair for too long. But what do you do in between books? When none of these ladies have anything new out and I’m just counting the minutes til the next book?
Well, I go on Goodreads. I love me some Goodreads. You can find authors big and small, print books and ebooks and audiobooks. Oh my! You can find authors that are similar to ones you like, or find a completely new voice. My favorite thing to do on Goodreads is read other people’s reviews. I would love to write a detailed review for every book I’ve read. But I just don’t have the energy. These reviews, good or bad, are helpful for both the author and the reader.
If you haven’t got started on Goodreads, check out my bookshelves. Maybe it will help you get started. Happy hunting!
