Booking through Thursday
Since “Inspiration” is (or should) the theme this week … what is your reading inspired by?
Part of my reading is inspired by my love of history, in particular Tudors, Stuarts and Plantagent years. Although liking history at school I didn't excel at it and it wasn't till I was introduced to 'Jean Plaidy' books by a work colleague that my history passion took off. I'm finding more and more historical novels to my liking and so my TBR read pile increases daily.
In addition to historical fiction I also enjoy crime novels. The t.v. series 'Morse' has inspired me to read the books . When I attended an evening with the author, Colin Dextor last year his enthusiasm shone through and this inspired me to read more.
Naming just two of my favourite authors is a little unfair as the writings of many people inspire me to read. Their words , spark my imagination and keep 'the little grey cells' working!
