What Draws Us To Read What we Love?

What is it that draws someone to read an author's book?There are various reasons one may read a book.A title,genre,or even an  amazing plot?Characters someone can relate to is another way we get drawn to a work of Literature.When I find a book that intrigues me I tend to read it over and over again.I enjoy reading various genres and authors.For me it is always a challenge to find the "perfect" book. I have my favorite authors that I continue to look for and read their work,but I am always looking for new authors and am so excited to read their work and get to them through their writing. I am often tempted to read a book due to the plot and the characters.I love when I read something someone else has written and yet I can completely relate to it.There are so many wonderful books out there by such amazing authors.
  Some of my favorite books and their authors would have to include these great works:

1.) "A Child Called"IT" by Dave Pelzer

2.) "Sugar Baby" by Karen Young

3.) "Oliver Twist" by Charles Dickens

4.) "Cowboy Conspiracy" by Joanna Wayne

5.) "The Hunt for Hawke's Daughter" by Jean Barrett

6.) "Jacob's Girls" by Tara Taylor Quinn

And the list goes on and on..... I love to read a book or even a poem and be able to feel what the writer/character is going through at the time.For me reading a book is always an adventure and I love to go on these adventures with these wonderful,compelling characters!!!


  1. I read a variety of books depending on my mood. I just like great writing and love great dialogue. I enjoy Shakespeare at times and I love all of Jane Austen's novels. I enjoy Hemingway, too. I like reading biographies and knowing about people. I really liked Stranger in a Strange Land; it gave me something to really think about. I enjoyed Koontz's The Face. I like stories by the Bronte's and so on. It just has to catch my attention either by plot, clever title or the beginning paragraph. Good writing is good writing.

  2. I agree good writing is good writing.I also love to read biographies.My favorite is Shirley Temple Black.I also tend to chose books based on my mood.I love all of the authors you mentioned.They all write such wonderful books!
