Angie Stanton, author of the just released young adult contemporary romance Rock and a Hard Place, shares her current reads.
One of the questions that authors get asked most is, “What are you reading now?” It’s an innocent enough question and wholly understandable. I suppose that most people think that authors have the inside scoop on what’s fresh, that we spend a great deal of time reading everything that comes out, especially within our writing genre. There is a certain amount of truth to this, but, for me, there was a time when the question of what I’m reading was a difficult thing to answer.
I am someone who cherishes the night. Perhaps because I have kids and those final hours (okay sometimes minutes) of quiet time are a way of salvaging and somehow maintaining whatever is left of my sanity.
So what is on my nightstand? What is it that I read once I finally get into bed? Imagine the perfect housewife in her pink nightgown, with her blanket pulled up past her waist and a book resting on her lap. I am not a pretty reader. I am not that housewife.
