I’m in a few book clubs and always push for fiction when it comes time to vote on our next book. Fiction improves my writing and storytelling, and inspires everyday creativity.
The following is a list of the top 10 books I’ve read and how they play a part in my professional life.
1. “Still Alice“: Written from the voice of a woman diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s, author Lisa Genova takes us on a journey. The writing conveys so well the confusion and anxiety the protagonist feels that it makes me want to be a better storyteller.
2. “The Hunger Games“: Need I say more? The books in this series are easy-to-read page turners. The trilogy, like the new “Chemical Garden” rage, provides a lot of creativity. Just the thought of someone who can create these worlds inspires the reader to push the boundaries.
