50 Book Recommendations

Whether you want inspiration for Christmas presents, or ideas for what to read to complete your GoodReads challenge, or you'd just like to laugh at my bad taste to cheer you up on a grey day, I thought this might be a good time to post a list of 50 of my favourite books.



The idea is to write 50,000 words in November. That averages out at about 1,600 words per day. Of course, commercial novels are actually 80,000 to 100,000 words long and a first draft is not a finished novel, but it's still a really good challenge to set yourself, very satisfying to complete, and can be a useful way to kickstart your writing, or to build up a good chunk of first draft to start working on.
