reflections of a bookaholic. Each Wednesday is an opportunity to explore a different aspect of literature and why I love it. Today's topic: favorite genre.
If you follow my reviews, you will have noticed that I read all sorts of stuff. My favorite genre changes with the seasons and my moods and, sometimes, by whatever I am reading. I will say that I generally prefer fiction (although a good non-fiction story can capture me as well.). And I have a special spot in my reading heart reserved just for poetry.
True to form, I think I'll create a genre called 'well written' - that's my favorite. In 'well written' the author uses his/her words to actually paint a picture in my mind; the characters experience growth of some kind; there is movement in the plot; in the end I am moved by the story I have been told. There are many 'well written' books out there in every aisle of the library or book store. Check them out.
