Today, Bree (@mostlybree) tells us about her Six Books.
1. What book are you currently reading?
I also read the deal announcement for Hannah Whitten's debut For the Wolf and screamed in my office, so I want that one a whole lot! Someone involved needs to call me!
3. Is there a book you’re currently itching to read again?
4. How about a book you’ve changed your mind about – either positively or negatively?
5. What’s one book, which you read as a child or a young adult, that has had a lasting influence on your writing?
I think that's the book that made me fascinated with dystopian and post-apocalyptic fiction. Over the years I'd read a lot of it--some great, some terrible--but that was the original spark. And wrestling with the question of what kind of world we'd build if we had to start from scratch is a lot of my current writing obsession.
6. And speaking of that, what’s your latest book, and why is it awesome?
Though that's not entirely true. While the book takes place after an apocalyptic event (45 years after one, in fact) the book itself is about friendship, and community, and hope. It may sound a bit odd, but my favorite part of writing about a world where all rules and systems have been swept away is imagining that some people (the people who the rules and systems weren't doing much for) would do it better and smarter this time.
So I wrote a book about a couple of ladies who happen to have superpowers thanks to unregulated genetic experimentation, and they're using those superpowers to build a library.
That's it. That's the book. Mercenary librarians. I think that's pretty awesome. :)
