We are cruising right along with the #MFRWauthor blog hop. This week's topic changes our roles from writer to reader. What are our favorite books to read?
So like with a few of these topics, they are left open to interpretation. It could be about genres that I like, or possibly elements I look for in books regardless of genre.

It should come as no shock that I'd enjoy reading romance novels. I know some aren't a fan of this genre for various reasons but it's always my go-to. Yes it's true you sorta know how things will end since the HEA is expected in romance, but the journey can take so many paths.
I enjoy watching the story unfold. The two people coming together, overcoming obstacles to find their happily ever after. That's if I like the characters. The characters of the story are most important to me. Maybe that's because my stories are more character driven. The plot of course is important, but even if the plot is great, if the characters are flat the whole book can fall apart.
I want books that give me the whole package. Ones that make my reading a complete experience.
Sorry for the rather lackluster post this week. I'm currently in NY for my nephew's graduation so I did a quick one so I wouldn't miss a week. Not a lot to time to think everything through.
Will play catch up on reading when I get back next week. Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by.
Be sure to stop by and see what the other authors enjoy reading.
