the hop!!


This week the question, posted over at Crazy-for-Books' blog, is:

 "Why do you read the genre that you do?  What draws you to it?"

I started reading Christian fiction because I wanted to read stories that had God in them, how He works in people's lives and how those who believe in Him follow His ways through various trials.
However, I won't deny that this genre has rather disappointed me, as  I really often find really godly fiction out there. Instead, most of the books characterized as christian fiction are just regular books with a verse or tow thrown in. I have started reading less and less books in that genre, but it is still my favourite.
I also read historicals because I love reading about the customs and ettiquette of another time.
I read classical literature because it is the greatest form of educational art.
And recently, I read ya, because I find the books in this genre deliciously simple and honest.
