Here is part two of the book list of books I am reading this May. I have included the links to Amazon’s page for you to easily obtain the books. I hope you enjoy!
DIY MFA by Gabriela Pereira
This book goes along with a website full of useful tips, a podcast with interviews and advice from great writers, and a Facebook Group that is helpful to its community. It teaches you the three main steps to creating your own Creative Writing MFA experience that works for you. Traditional MFA’s are better for literary fiction, creative non-fiction, or poetry. They don’t serve the genre writers as much. The DIY MFA guides you in how to set up your own program that will help you with your specific writing goals.
Thirst No. 1 by Christopher Pike
This book is about Vampires. Each one has an interesting take on them and how they operate. Short, dark stories that are captivating. I needed the research since I don’t read very many vampire novels and am interested in learning more.
The Achievement Habit by Bernard Roth
Training your mind to be more creative and productive can seem like a hard task. But with this book you are trained to think differently by one of the founders of Standford’s revolutionary design school, known as “d.school.” Interesting and engaging with stories from real students, this book will help you train your brain to be more productive.
