Musing Mondays (Sept.12)

This week’s Musing Mondays from Should Be Reading asks…

“This week’s musing asks…

What is the one (or maybe two) qualities a book must have for you to pass it along to your best friend as a “must-read”?

I myself love books with strong, especially female, characters and a good, solid believable or at least relatable story. I’d happily recommend a book that has these qualities. Also, if there is something in that story that really moves me or something that makes me sit up and take notice I might be tempted to pass it on to another reader.

    1. Hey there! So glad to have you with us!

      A strong female character can often lead to a book becoming one of my favourites. One of my all time favourite books, Pride and Prejudice, has been my favourite precisely for that reason.

    1. I totally agree with you!

      Believable is very important to me too. Even when I am reading a fantasy the human emotions should be there and the story should relate to me on some level. I guess that’s why I love the Harry Potter series of books. Even though they are set in a world different from our own, we all can relate to Harry’s journey.

      And yes also they should act like smart people. Stupidity really bugs me. I am often particularly angered by female characters of the wilting wallflowers variety.
