Todays question from BTT:
If you’re anything like me, one of your favorite reasons to read is for the story. Not for the character development and interaction. Not because of the descriptive, emotive powers of the writer. Not because of deep, literary meaning hidden beneath layers of metaphor. (Even though those are all good things.) No … it’s because you want to know what happens next?
Or, um, is it just me?
I have to say that sometimes I read books for the story and other times its for the emotions and feelings it evokes. It’s great that sometimes they can come together. I do quite like a mix and I have to say with many of the thrillers I read the descriptions and emotions are secondary and I love finding out where the book is going next and following all the twists and turns. I find I can also be in the mood for descriptive books and can sometimes indulge in classics like The Woodlanders by Thomas Hardy (I loved this book!). So depending on my mood I like a bit of everything!
