There are some big “firsts” in my life, like the first time I saw the hubs and felt that thrill down my spine (still feel it actually). Special moments with my kids. Finding out I’m going to be a grandma this year. 🙂 But the small firsts are special, too.
Since I started the week writing about book chemistry, I thought I’d finish it with books. Or rather a book. I have a serious pile of books, many of which I reread on occasion, many of which I’d love to read again for the first time, but the book I’d like to read again for the first time the most (probably) is:
I found the book through the movie, staring Hayley Mills, and reading it indirectly led to my first novel, The Spy Who Kissed Me. Cause her books taught me to love romance, suspense, adventure and yes, humor. I became an author because she didn’t write fast enough.
What book would you like to read again for the first time? Don’t you love the moment when you realize you are having a great time? That you are in the story and want to stay there for as long as possible? That you sigh with happiness and regret when you reach the end? When you realize there is a back list? When I start writing a book, it is with the hope that I’ll do that for a reader. And I’m always looking for that when I start a new book by a new-to-me author. Found a book or author lately that sent that thrill to your toes?
