Reading The Lightbearers by Nora M. Garcia

I finally started my autumn reading list!  I started with The Lightbearers by Nora M. Garcia.  I haven’t downloaded any audio books yet, but have started to read in spurts as per my commitment to get more reading time in.  Read about that here.

I will be interviewing Nora M. Garcia at Book Marks and that interview will be appearing in the near future.  In the meantime, I am about a fifth of the way through the book.

To be honest, this is the second self-published novel I have read.  The first was In Full Uniform by Anthony Carnovale, a friend of mine.  The novel is based on the true story of a 15 year old boy who was bullied, had many painful issues and committed suicide.  While the story was one that I basically lived, since the boy was a student  where I teach, I had a good reading experience because it was well written, plotted and paced.

I am easily seeing the differences between a self-published and traditionally published book as I read The Lightbearers. However, I am keeping an open mind and reading The Lightbearers anxiously waiting for that crescendo where I can say that’s why I stuck with this book!  It will happen. 

Have you read a self-published book that you ended up loving?

      1. To be fair, I only read it because my library chose it for the one book, one town event. But I loved it. I wrote a review a few months back if you feel like clicking around on the blog.

        Cheers!
