One of the things I want to work on with my writing in 2012 is making sure I involve the emotions. I want to take you on an emotional rollcoaster! Wild joy, the depths of loneliness and doubt, and everything in between.
I’ve taken Margie Lawson’s Empowing Characters’ Emotions workshop (I plan to re-read all my notes next year), but I’m looking for highly emotional books you’ve enjoyed that I can add to Mt. TBR. Some books I’ve heard recommended as “emotional” are Lisa Valdez’s Passion and E.L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey. (Whispers, although I’ll admit that I’ve tried to read both in the past and can’t get through the samples.)
When you think of high emotions, what books would you recommend?
