Careful or You’ll End Up in My Novel: The Romance Novelist at Work

Susan Mallery is listening. The bestselling author of Chasing Perfect and You Say It First finds inspiration for her own humorous, heartwarming books everywhere—from fictional families to real-life "meet cutes." Here Mallery shares why she loves meeting new couples, how relationships shape the characters in her new romance, When We Found Home, and what she wants to know about you.

Whenever I meet a couple at, say, a cocktail party, I always ask, "How did you meet?"

Then: "What brought you together? What got in your way? And how did you overcome that to ultimately be here, today, talking to a writer who asks too many questions?"

I'm endlessly fascinated by human behavior and, in particular, by the infinitely nuanced interactions between two individuals. No two stories are exactly alike, even if on the surface they're similar. Every person's emotions, perceptions, actions and reactions are influenced by everything that happened in his or her life to that point. The story of a person's life impacts every subsequent moment of that life.

This must also be true in fiction for the characters to feel genuine, particularly in the character-driven stories of popular women's fiction. The relationships aren't beside the point—they are the point. Relationships drive the plots.

Dorothea Benton Frank's By Invitation Only does this well. It is an entertaining study of two very different families—the haves and the have-nots—brought together for the wedding of a beloved son and daughter. The mothers are forced into an odd sort of intimacy, family but not really family, as they play their roles in helping to plan the wedding.

What makes it so compelling is that it's not just about the wedding. A wedding is fleeting, but the mothers are facing the reality that they'll have to put up with each other for the rest of their lives. Their interactions ring true because Frank created characters whose personal histories color every moment. And then the events of the story cause the characters to grow and change, which ultimately reshapes the relationship between them.

Mary Kay Andrews adds an intergenerational twist in The High Tide Club. The action takes place in the early 1940s and in present day, and it's a testament to Andrews' skill with characterization to see how the events of seventy years ago still resonate. What happened to the characters long ago affected the way they lived their lives, which in turn affected how the main characters of the present-day part of the tale were raised.

In my latest book, When We Found Home, I bring together three siblings who never met—who never even knew each other existed for that matter—until the truth was discovered in their late father's paperwork. Because they come from very different circumstances, they're instantly wary of each other, as we humans tend to be.

The stories of their past shape their relationships today, and the growth of those relationships shapes the stories of their future.

So…how did you and your significant other or best friend meet? What brought you together? What got in your way? And how did you overcome that to ultimately be here, today, answering a writer who asks too many questions?

Susan Mallery's When We Found Home hits bookshelves on July 10. Add it to you Want to Read shelf here.

Jennie Shaw Really Nails Her Book Reviews

jennie shaw's nails

Goodreads member Jennie Shaw loves books and incredibly elaborate manicures. Luckily for us, she's combined her two passions in her blog, Jennie's Nails and Tales. Goodreads recently chatted with Shaw from her home about an hour outside of Toronto, Canada, where she lives with her husband and her two dogs, Pickle and Pepi. Shaw told us about her reading habits, her love of magical books, and her tricks and tips for getting those amazing book cover manicures just right.

Goodreads: Tell me how you got started both blogging book reviews and painting book cover manicures?

Jennie Shaw: I started blogging about eight years ago. I'd developed an autoimmune disorder—I'm actually a former rape crisis worker with a master's in legal studies, so I was hoping to work with at-risk young women and survivors of sexual violence—and then I got this autoimmune disorder, so that stopped what I thought was going to be my path and I had to regroup. I started blogging: lifestyle, letters to nobody, just nonsense. Then I found a community online with other bloggers who had book review linkups and nail polish linkups—suddenly I was doing these things.

About three years ago my interests merged. It was the first time I was mentioned in a book's acknowledgements, and I wanted to do something a little more exciting than just a basic review for The One That Got Away by Bethany Chase. There was a little blue sparrow on the book cover, and I thought, "Oh, no big deal, I'll just paint a bird on my nail." It took me so long. If you go back and look at it now, it's embarrassing how long that took me to paint! But I did it. Then I found people online who were doing the same thing but not really including a book review. I was like, "Oh, well, maybe I can do that."

I love it. In my heart, I'm a book pusher. I want everyone to read! You know, I'll meet that person who doesn't, and it hurts my soul! I'm like, "Come on! No books? Like, zero books?!" Whenever I'm in a bookstore, I'm always seeing what people are interested in and then absolutely giving my opinion and sort of forcing them to buy books before they leave. They love me at Coles bookstore.

jennie shaw's nails

Goodreads: How do you approach your blog? Do you start with the book you want to review, with the book cover, with the nails?

JS: It's evolved a little bit. I started out doing "cover-inspired" manicures, but I've moved toward trying to paint the covers as accurately as I can. As I've evolved, I've started getting ARCs [advance review copies of books sent out by publishers], so my reading schedule is filling up! Since I'm not going to love every book that I read, I decided early on that I'm not going to pee on anyone's parade. If I don't like a book, I have no interest in spreading the reasons why I didn't like it. What I don't like, someone else will love. I don't want to contribute to not having wonderful things to say. If I don't want to scream at people about how great this book is, I don't review it and I don't paint the mani. The manis take a long time, and I need that fangirl enthusiasm.

Goodreads: So, you find a book that you love and are going to review. Now tell me about the manicure part of this.

JS: I've learned to streamline my process a bit. Now on the first day, I'll do the book cover's background as my base coat. And I'll do that at night. It's usually the easiest part. It's just matching the background color and texture. And then I'll come in the next day and usually do the title first, because that typically takes up the most space. Then I'll work in the background. When I look at a book cover now, I almost see it in layers.

And then it dries, and I let it dry forever because there's nothing that makes you want to cry more—I mean, like crawl into a fetal position—than when the top coat smudges! The top coat is important, but it can also make me shake my fist at the sky when it ruins hours of work!

Goodreads: That brings up a quick question: How many polish colors do you own?

JS: A lot! Well, my husband made me a nail polish rack, and I think it held 150 bottles, and I outgrew that pretty quickly. It's really been the last six years that the polish has gotten out of control. Then he built a rack for me that's double the size; it is also full now. China Glaze put me on their mailing list in the fall, and that's changed everything. Now the polish comes in the mail like magic!

I mean, I live in the country, in the middle of nowhere, and it's crazy to hear from people that they like what I do. When anyone sends me anything, a message or follows me on Twitter, I'm like, "Really?!" I just love it so much! It's beyond any warm and fuzzy feeling, really.

Goodreads: What was the hardest book cover to paint on your nails?

JS: Oh, recently it was probably All the Ever Afters: The Untold Story of Cinderella’s Stepmother by Danielle Teller, because there were 4,000 details. When I saw the cover, I knew it was complicated, but it's Cinderella's stepmother's origin story! I talked myself into it by saying, "You can maybe, even if you don't do the whole thing, maybe you could do a fern and that one flower."

Usually with those book manis, I only do one hand because I'm going to do a picture and then take it off. But if I'm going to go meet an author, I'll do it on my other hand, too. And that's probably the hardest because I'm painting with my nondominant hand.

Goodreads: So, let's talk books. Tell me, what are your favorite reads so far this year?

JS: OK, I loved All the Ever Afters. The author is a doctor, and how does she use both sides of her brain so well? She took that fairy tale we know and love and traced it back with things like, "Where does the glass slipper come from?" "What about the evil stepsisters?" "How does a truth become myth?" She did this with, here's a pun, a surgical retelling. She really made Agnes her own character, and I felt for her. And, trust, by the end of it, I was like, "Cinderella who? I'm team Stepmother!" I've read a lot of retellings, and I've never read one that does quite what she did.

I loved She Regrets Nothing by Andrea Dunlop. That book took me by surprise. I was not expecting to get as sucked into that. The writing was almost melodic to me. I loved The Favorite Sister, I loved Tell Me Lies, and the male point of view with that one was just extraordinary. And The Map of Salt and Stars was so good. That book was so beautiful; mixing the modern story with the fable gave you a break from that raw emotional content. It almost seemed to have more impact, because you had that chance to catch your breath and go back in.

Goodreads: So, that's a lot of genres! What do you like most?

JS: I'm a very greedy reader. I just want to have a taste of everything, like it's a big buffet. First and foremost, magic. It's like I'm upset that I'm not magical! Victoria Schwab? My gosh, I could read her all day. Leigh Bardugo! Holly Black! I should preface this with darker magic. I will read anything if there's magic. Even if I'm not super sure about the premise, the magic will make me want to give it a chance.

Goodreads: How many books are you reading? I mean, you're only reviewing books that you really love.

JS: I average around 80 a year. My Goodreads Reading Challenge goal for the last few years has been 80, and I think I hit 81 a couple of times. I'm ahead this year. Last year, there were so many amazing books, and I'm finding even more this year. So I'm reviewing a little more than I usually do, because there's so many great books that I want to scream about. For reviews, I do anywhere from about 35 to 40 a year. Again, this year is shaping up to be the most ever. I review everything: mystery, thriller, dystopian, adventure, horror. I'm not really a big romance reader. Again, I need something a little darker, like Tell Me Lies with toxic romance? I'm like, yeah, OK.

Goodreads: Is this still a hobby for you? Is this a career?

JS: I've been pretty adamant that I don't want it to become a job. I genuinely love doing this. And I do it first for love. I don't want it to feel like a chore. Yes, I feel pressure, like anyone who uses social media does, to keep posting and keep to a schedule. But I don't want there to be anymore pressure than that. The sensation that you're drowning in your TBR [To Be Read list] is bad enough, and I already have that on the daily. I really only try to have four or five ARCs a month, however many weeks there are, so that I can still read a book for pleasure, and if I want to review one of those, I'll try to squeeze it in. But I don't want to have two books to review in the same week; that's too much. So, I'm slowing it down a little bit.

every single secret nails

Goodreads: What are your best tips for creating these cover nails?

JS: First of all, I have to say your enthusiasm has to be high, because it's probably going to be frustrating at first.

For me, I worked on my tools, and that made the biggest difference. So, I started with standard brushes you find in your average Sally Beauty. Although they look thinner than the brushes that come with the nail polish bottle, they still aren't overly precise. But I worked on my technique with those brushes. You have to get used to the angle. A lot of nail artists paint their nails upside down; I do not do that. I do them in sort of "claw formation." You have to be comfortable doing line work. When I first started, the hardest part was trying to get that straight line. Start on a piece of paper first and try to get the right pressure. Once you get good at that, then move to a thinner brush.

If I had started out with the brushes I have now, I would have been completely overwhelmed. You have to have that steady hand before you can be precise. If you're really shaky, it's going to bum you out, and it's supposed to be a positive experience. So I'd say first and foremost, you have to get a separate nail brush. After that, you could use acrylic paint. A lot of nail artists do that. You get a crisper line right off the bat. I use nail polish. I very occasionally use acrylic to do very small lettering, but 99.9 percent of my manis are nail polish.

Goodreads: What are some of your favorite book cover manicures?

JS: Wicked Like a Wildfire: That cover was my favorite cover of 2017, absolutely stunning. I also loved one from early on, Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things by Jenny Lawson, because there's Rory the Raccoon. I was so proud of his little teeth; that was the first time I thought I could do finer details like Rory's tiny little teeth. Oh, The Fireman by Joe Hill! That turned out really well. Then She Was Gone by Lisa Jewell. Anything with a matte finish! I'm loving this trend of matte covers. There's something so slick about them and ominous. And matte nails, it's amazing how putting that top coat on changes the whole feel of the photo. Take out the light! I just posted The Outsider by Stephen King; I liked that one as well.

Joe Hill nails

Goodreads: So, you spend all this time on these elaborate manicures, but how long do they last?

JS: Oh, anywhere from 24 to 48 hours.

Goodreads: That's heartbreaking!

JS: I know! There's a part of me that does get sad to take it off. But I'm excited about the next thing at that point. It's not like there's a lull. I'll already be 150, 200 pages into another book, and hopefully be jazzed about it and will start planning out what I'm going to do. I'll start studying the book cover to figure out how I can break it down into four little tiny canvases.

Sugar, Spice, and Ruthlessness: What Unconventional YA Heroines Are Made Of

What if Vlad the Impaler had been a young woman? This is the question that sparked Kiersten White’s bestselling young adult trilogy, The Conqueror's Saga. In this alternate history, the Wallachian "girl prince" Lada Dracul pursues power by any means. Here, White explores the importance of allowing YA heroines to be flawed, ambitious, and even a little cruel—in other words, fully human.

Sugar and spice and everything nice—that’s what little girls are made of. We’re taught that from infancy. There’s a song I love by Snow Patrol called "Empress" that starts with the line "You’re angry, but you don’t know how to be that yet." And that resonates with me, because for a lot of years I didn’t know how to be angry. Or, more specifically, I didn’t know how to allow myself to be angry.

In one of my earlier books, The Chaos of Stars, the main character is an angry girl. She’s mad at her family. She’s mad at the world. And even though she eventually begins to heal, a lot of readers responded very negatively to her.

I carried that feedback with me for a long time. Here was a character with every right to be angry, and I was being told she shouldn’t have felt that way. If she had been a boy, would that criticism have existed? Would she have been so hated for being flawed? I didn’t think so.

In the meantime, I discovered Melina Marchetta’s Lumatere Chronicles and the incomparably, masterfully unlikable Quintana in Quintana of Charyn. Then I was given Robin LaFevers’ Dark Triumph and the fiercely livid Sybella, who was allowed vengeance and love without ever softening. And then Marie Lu, who is one of the kindest people I know, gave us the horrifying Adelina in The Young Elites. Lu made a villain her hero, turning what made Adelina awful into what made her great.

I used this inspiration like armor. When I began writing Lada Dracul in And I Darken, I was fully prepared to channel all the rage I had never been allowed. I thought it would be fun. It surprised me because it was terrifying. I worried that people wouldn’t respond well to Lada, that they’d hate her, that she would repulse them. But every time I found myself looking for ways to soften her, to make her more likable, I siphoned some of her strength, steeled myself, and wrote angrier.

And much to my shock and delight, people loved her. Readers needed to read an unapologetically ruthless and brutal girl as much as I needed to write one. Even the final book, Bright We Burn, changed over the course of drafting as I found myself unwilling to "punish" Lada for what she wanted and how she got it. The world does that enough to ambitious, powerful women.

There is tremendous strength in kindness, in femininity, in gentleness. But giving anger its rightful place in girls' lives is long overdue. Screw likable. I want my heroines determined, relentless, even vicious. I want them to claim the portions of the world that have been denied them. I want them to have the same agency and the full range of emotions that we give to male characters. I want our heroines to need no one’s permission to be human.

>Bright We Burn, the final installment of The Conquerer's Saga, will be available on July 10. Don’t forget to add it to your Want to Read shelf!

What Is the Perfect Beach Read Anyway?

A beach read is, on the surface, a fairly easy thing to understand. It's a book you read at the beach…right? Or perhaps it's a book you'd like to read at the beach. Maybe it's just a book that takes place near an ocean?

There is no definitive answer. Like beauty, a beach read is in the eye of the beholder. We asked you on Facebook and Twitter to tell us what you think the term means. We've got your top responses below, along with some recommendations we think you'll love!

Books That Draw You In

"I think of a beach read as anything that deeply engrosses me—I can’t put it down. I read Gone Girl while enjoying the beach…and I am thrilled to say I did not know the big twist. I remember when I finished that part of the novel, I put it down and just stared at the ocean for several minutes because I was so stunned," says Mary.

Books with Short Chapters

"Something with very short chapters. Nice places to stop and easily restart when distracted," says Rebecca.

Books That Make Your Heart Race

"My favorite beach reads are paperback gothic romances, the ones with the frightened young woman running away from the scary house on a cliff. I don't know why, but I have been addicted to these books since I was a kid," says Beverly.

Books with Sunny Settings

"A plot associated with sunny weather: beach, water sports, sun, eating," says Marren.

Books That Make You Laugh

"Something easy and funny so that you can lift your eyes here and there to look at the beauty in front of you," says Beatrix.

Books That Transport You

"A light-hearted book full of awesome adventure," says Romi.

Генри Марш Не навреди. Истории о жизни, смерти и нейрохирургии Do No Harm: Stories of Life, Death, and Brain Surgery
Не навреди. Истории о жизни, смерти и нейрохирургии
Совершая ошибки или сталкиваясь с чужими, мы успокаиваем себя фразами "Человеку свойственно ошибаться". Но утешают ли они того, кто стал жертвой чужой некомпетентности? И утешают ли они врача, который не смог помочь?
Нам хочется верить, что врач непогрешим на своем рабочем месте. В операционной всемогущ, никогда не устает и не чувствует себя плохо, не раздражается и не отвлекается на посторонние мысли. Но каково это на самом деле - быть нейрохирургом? Каково знать, что от твоих действий зависит не только жизнь пациента, но и его личность - способность мыслить и творить, грустить и радоваться?
Рано или поздно каждый нейрохирург неизбежно задается этими вопросами, ведь любая операция связана с огромным риском. Генри Марш, всемирно известный британский нейрохирург, раздумывал над ними на протяжении всей карьеры, и итогом его размышлений стала захватывающая, предельно откровенная и пронзительная книга, главную идею которой можно уложить в два коротких слова: "Не навреди".

Из всех щелей начинает сочиться такая развеселая хтонь и инфернальная жуть, что Мамлеев с Горчевым дружно пускаются в пляс, а Гоголь с Булгаковым аплодируют.Поразительный, единственный в своем роде язык, заземленный и осязаемый материальный мир и по-настоящему волшебная мерцающая неоднозначность (то ли все происходящее в романе — гриппозные галлюцинации трех Петровых, то ли и правда обнажилась на мгновение колдовская изнанка мира) — как ни посмотри, выдающийся текст и настоящий читательский праздник".Галина Юзефович....

Ю Несбё Снеговик Snomannen
Поистине в первом снеге есть что-то колдовское. Он не только сводит любовников, заглушает звуки, удлиняет тени, скрывает следы. Годами в Норвегии в тот день, когда выпадает первый снег, бесследно исчезают замужние женщины.
На этот раз Харри Холе сталкивается с серийным убийцей на своей родной земле, и постепенно их противостояние приобретает личный характер. Преступник, которому газеты дали прозвище Снеговик, будто дразнит старшего инспектора, шаг за шагом подбираясь к его близким......

Михаил Булгаков Мастер и Маргарита
Мастер и Маргарита
"Мастер и Маргарита" М.А.Булгакова - самое удивительное и загадочное произведение XX века. Опубликованный в середине 1960-х, этот роман поразил читателей необычностью замысла, красочностью и фантастичностью действия, объединяющего героев разных эпох и культур. Автор создал "роман в романе", где сплетены воедино религиозно-историческая мистерия, восходящая к легенде о распятом Христе, московская "буффонада" и сверхъестественные сцены с персонажами, воплощающими некую темную силу, которая однако "вечно хочет зла и вечно совершает благо".
"Есть в этой книге какая-то безрасчетность, какая-то предсмертная ослепительность большого таланта..." - писал Константин Симонов в своем предисловии к первой публикации романа, открывшей всему миру большого художника, подлинного Мастера слова....

Сергей Довлатов Чемодан
Сергей Довлатов - один из самых популярных и читаемых русских писателей конца ХХ - начала XXI века. Его повести, рассказы, записные книжки переведены на множество языков, экранизированы, изучаются в школе и вузах. Удивительно смешная и одновременно пронзительно-печальная проза Довлатова давно стала классикой и роднит писателя с такими мастерами трагикомической прозы, как А.Чехов, Тэффи, А.Аверченко, М.Зощенко. «Чемодан» – один из самых характерных довлатовских сборников, посвященный, по словам автора, «содержимому эмигрантского чемодана». Вот как сам Довлатов описывал свою книгу: «В центре новой книги Довлатова — чемодан, обыкновенный потрепанный чемодан, с которым эмигрант Довлатов покинул родину. Распаковав его после нескольких месяцев скитаний, герой убеждается, что за каждой вещью, находящейся в чемодане, стоит драматическая, смешная или нелепая история»....

Хэнкс Т. Уникальный экземпляр. Истории о том о сём
Уникальный экземпляр. Истории о том о сём
Впервые на русском - семнадцать историй, доказывающих, что двукратный лауреат «Оскара» Том Хэнкс не менее талантлив и как писатель.
"Мистер Хэнкс оказался настоящим писателем с большой буквы “П”, - рекомендует Стивен Фрай. - Одни рассказы в этой книге заставят вас хохотать в голос, другие — растрогают до слез". Герои Хэнкса отправляются на Луну в самодельной ракете, застревают в Париже во время промо-тура блокбастера "Кассандра Рэмпарт III: Страх на пороге", раз за разом возвращаются в один и тот же день "Мира будущего" на нью-йоркской Всемирной выставке 1939 года, предпочитают компьютеру винтажную пишущую машинку…
"За два года я снимался в Нью-Йорке, Берлине, Атланте, Будапеште и других городах. Все это время я писал, - рассказывал сам Хэнкс.
- Я работал в пресс-турах, в отелях, в самолетах, дома, даже в отпуске. Когда позволял график, я писал с утра и до часу ночи - на разных пишущих машинках из моей коллекции"....
