A weekly meme hosted by Jennifer @ Crazy For Books.
This week's question is from Barb @ Sugarbeat's Books:
Why do you read the genre that you do? What draws you to it?
I love reading a variety of genres because it makes my mind work in different ways and there are countless possibilities for stories & subjects when you keep an open mind to what you read. With adult/general fiction, I'm drawn to the marriage between relatable or ordinary characters to extraordinary circumstances or situations that change a character from what he/she was in the beginning to carrying even a small amount of change or additional experience in themselves by the end. In general nonfiction, I am drawn to the in-depth exploration of a topic, not necessarily to the point of exhaustion but to developing a new sense of the subject and a willingness to adopt a different frame of mind on the topic or to renew a lost feeling or piece of knowledge that got lost in the hubbub of daily life.
I'd be curious to hear how more specific genres that you read draw you in. A great discussion topic this week, as usual :)
