The Best 100 Opening Lines From Books. Ten Novels Every Aspiring Writer Should Read. TYEE LIST #9: Put down that pen and curl up with these giants. Treat your craft seriously, as does Gabriel García Márquez. Some time ago I published an article about 10 novels that aspiring writers should avoid. It wasn't because they were bad -- most of them are modern classics -- but because their readable styles looked so easy that they might seduce a young writer into imitating them. Other novels deserve reading by writers precisely because they can't be imitated.

They can only show us how far a particular technique can be pushed, and it's up to us to understand and adapt that technique to our own work.

The church, St. Female Perspectives: Five Novels That Bring Outsiders In. Andrew Bannecker For readers in search of tales that step outside familiar viewpoints, there is an abundance of fiction by women unraveling the big themes of conflict, religion, race and love — from new and different angles. The five novels I'm recommending offer up-close-and-personal engagement with characters who are often at odds with their communities or whose lives are so far on the periphery that we can be sure history books would pass them by.

8 Books For a Higher Existence

By carrying meaning, they gives us glimpses of experience and knowledge from a different world. Phonetic language, being cut-off from time and place, the Now, helps both to encapsulate the ego more, but also to offer guidance to make it poriferous, letting Eros free.

These are the books that can lift our spirits to a necessary higher existence. If you’re done reading this list and want to level up more – check out part two!

“The Red Book and The Red Book: Jung, Tolkien and the Convergence of Images”

Book Review: Starhawk’s “The Fifth Sacred Thing” A local friend suggested I read “The Fifth Sacred Thing,” so that some of us could form a book discussion group about the ideas and vision of this novel.

Book Review: Starhawk’s “The Fifth Sacred Thing”

Although it took me awhile to get into the characters, I quickly saw why my friend has read this book three times and counting. It’s filled with permaculture principles, magick, natural healing, and the tension between totalitarian dystopia and a power-from-within ecotopia based upon respect, not control.
