This week’s question comes from Barb at Sugarbeat’s Books: “Why do you read the genre that you do?  What draws you to it?”

Wow…it’s so hard to answer this question because so many genres attract me.  I enjoy reading romance, non-fiction, christian and urban fiction to name a few.  I’ve just recently started getting into mystery, crime, science-fiction and paranormal…and, open to many, many others.

I used to only read romance novels because that’s what I enjoyed, but, as of late, I’m really opening myself up to different genres and finding that I enjoy many different types styles of writing.

And, I’m drawn to them because I love reading…there’s so much good writing out there.  I just can’t wait to get to it!!!

Happy “Book Blogger Hopping!”

This week’s question comes from Ivan at Ivan Bookworm: “What book influenced or changed your life?  How did it influence/change you?

I’ve read many books, and, fortunately, several of them have made an impact on my life.  However, I would like to choose for this question the book I’m currently reading, “Someone Knows My Name by Lawrence Hill, for influencing and changing my life.

I am reading this book as part of a Canadian Reading Challenge hosted by John Mutford over at The Book Mine Set.

It’s about a woman, who at a young age, was stolen from her African Homeland, and, after a long and brutal trip overseas, is sold into slavery in the States.  She eventually finds a way to escape, but, along the way, she has lost the two children she has borne.  She has endured famine and humuliation and beatings, and she has been seperated from her husband.

Despite her setbacks, she has this delicious hunger for life that’s so beautiful and breathtaking…it makes you want to cry a thousand times over.  She learns to read and write, how to take accounting and ledgers, set print at a newspaper, and even begins to teach others to read and write, thus helping them believe that there is hope.

I have learned to never take life for granted…ever, and to cherish the people you have in your life.  I have learned that it’s never too late to do what you believe will make your life better…you simply have to make strides towards it, and you can achieve anything you set your mine to.

I can go on and on about this book, but I’ll save it for my review.  Please look for it coming soon…

Happy “Book Blogger Hopping!”

This week’s question comes from Alex at Geek on the Brink: “What do you consider the most important in a story, the plot or the characters?”

Personally, I consider the characters to be most important in a story because, depending on how well the author develops their characters, they can make a not-so-good plot so real and believable that you won’t even want to put your book down, anticipating on what will come next.

Happy “Book Blogger Hopping!”
