    I don’t read fiction for fun—I try to read novels that express some fundamental part of the human condition or some hard won truth. I hope you’ll enjoy these (though for a fuller list, read my article on the 24 Fiction Books That Can Change Your Life). Don't miss this incredible list of the best historical fiction books has to offer. Featuring a new release from the author of Lilac Girls and The Alice Network, this year promises a list of incredible historical fiction books! Warning: Your reading list is about to double.

    is a whole new year, and our goal is to create and maintain writing momentum—but you may need a tiny push to get moving. Consider this your push. For the next few weeks, I'll be delighted to share short story ideas with you, and you have my full permission (and encouragement) to use them as you will.   Sentence by sentence, the book blends the leanness of a taut thriller with the marbled fatness of Elizabethan prose. Combining those two is quite the juggling : Dominic Dromgoole.

      Just by thinking carefully about the title, students should be able to predict a reasonable main idea to the book, as well as possible supporting details. In nonfiction books or passages, students can also use headings to make similar predictions of the main idea and details of smaller sections. An actual ACT Reading Test contains 40 questions to be answered in 35 minutes. Read the passage(s) carefully. Read and consider all of the answer choices before you choose the one that best responds to the question. Refer to the passage(s) when answering the questions.
