I’m listening to a book that I consider a great example of how dialogue should be done. It’s called BOOK LOVERS by Emily Henry. If any of you are looking for examples on how to write great, snappy and fresh dialogue, read or listen to this book. If you are not a writer but enjoy reading smart and fun dialogue, get this book. The dialogue moves the story forward, stays true to the characters, all while entertaining the reader.
The heroine is a literary agent and thinks in terms of tropes and character types — especially in regard to her dismal love life. The hero is a hard-ass editor with very strong opinions. When he annoys her, she sends him bigfoot erotica. Just as any high-powered, self-respecting agent would. Or is that just me???
I am finding this book fresh and fun.
You know what’s not fun? Getting a house ready to put on the market. This book is keeping me smiling — or at least not screaming — during the process.
What’s the last book that kept you smiling?
