March – Best books outside our genre that influenced us

Though Twilight is the book that got me started with my writing career, a few authors cemented my love of reading.

As a teenager, I read a lot of Stephen King books. He could draw me into a story, keeping me up till two in the morning, like no one else. And his ability to scare the daylights out of me was incredible!

I also enjoyed high fantasy back then, and read the Sword of Shannara Trilogy. Terry Brooks did a great job of making me invested in his characters. Though I no longer enjoy lengthy fantasy, I still recall the complete immersion into these stories.

Lately, though I mostly read young adult books, Gena Showalter and her paranormal romance books have been keeping me interested. Though each book focuses on the romance, her books all contain great storylines and interesting characters caught in situations that seem impossible.

Finally, Ann Rule and her true crime books amaze me. I don’t read a lot of nonfiction, but I’ve read many of her books and continue to enjoy them.

There are other books and authors I love, but these stand out as the books and authors outside my genre that keep me reading and trying new things!
