Her recent books include Lost in Las Vegas (Carter House Girls: Book 5), What Matters Most (Diary of a Teenage Girl: Maya, Book 3), and Three Weddings and a Bar Mitzvah (86 Bloomberg Place).
Earlier this month I asked her what she was reading. Her reply:
Right now I'm reading Last Go Round by Ken Kesey. It's not my usual read and I have to admit, it's not even my favorite style of writing. He changes point of view a lot, doesn't write chronologically, and takes a lot of liberty with historical facts. And yet it's an enjoyable book. The reason I picked it up is because I'm working on a book set in Pendleton Oregon, which includes some of the same historical background found in Kesey's book. So I guess you could say I'm researching. Interestingly, Ken Kesey and I are from the same area (near Eugene Oregon) and before Kesey's death, we shared a mutual friend who actually gave Kesey one of my books.Visit Melody Carlson's website and Facebook page.
