Character Book Picks: Nate from Unraveling Isobel
My favorite room in the house is our library. It’s in the wing that we’ve shut off because we can’t afford to fix and heat it. (This is one of the downsides of living in a house the size of a hotel.) The library has floor to ceiling bookcases and one of those ladders that hangs off a rail on the wall so you can reach the books at the very top. I like to hang out in there, build a fire in the fireplace, light some candles and read.
Most of the books are really old, dating back to when the house was built in the 1800’s. I know it’s weird, but I actually like reading all those old classics, The Three Musketeers, Treasure Island, and pretty much anything by Dickens. Don’t get me wrong, I love new books too, the Hunger Games and spy thrillers, stuff like that. My mom also used to love the library. Her favorite book was Alice in Wonderland. When my sister and I were little she would read us a chapter a night out loud.
My current favorite stuff is by Edgar Allan Poe. I like his short stories like the Tell Tale Heart. Poe writes creepy stuff, but that doesn’t mean I believe in ghosts. Given everything that’s been happening around here I felt I should point that out.
So there you guys have it! A little look at Nate and his reading preferences. Unraveling Isobel is out today, so don't wait to get to know him!
