Another weekend gone, and a new week begins. We have snow forecast for tonight and everyone is asking "Will it ever end?" and my answer is "Yes"! I remember the first year we moved to Colorado and there were flakes in June. But, that is Colorado for you, just wait 15 minutes and the weather will change. I do love the weather here though, it makes life interesting.
Well, on to the subject at hand. When I wrote my last post about what makes you close a book, I thought of just the opposite for this blog. What makes you look forward to the next book. I'm sure great writing and a great story is part of it, but are there certain characters that you really enjoy? I follow several author's series. I do love historical fictions with action and suspense. Nothing I love more than to go on a chase around the world for a certain artifact and the character's life is in danger and he/she is against all odds. I also love great mysteries with detective characters that have to solve the crime, with lots of twists and danger at every turn. Even international espionage gets me reading faster.
I also like fantasy fiction books where the main character is a down trodden youth who has to overcome several obstacles and become the hero he/she was meant to be. I think that's why I enjoy series so much, or at least a trilogy, I fall in love with the characters and want to go on another adventure with them. Of course, it doesn't hurt to have some magic and supernatural abilities in the fantasy books. Nothing I love better than that.
So my question to you is, are there certain characters that you love to follow? Do you like to read series? I personally don't want the story to end, if it's a good story.
So leave me a comment and tell me what characters are you excited to read about again? When the next book comes out in your favorite series, do you rush to buy it and steal some time reading?
I would love to hear who has grabbed you as a reader and held you tight! I guess that's all for today. I look forward to your answers in the comments and have a great week everyone!
