No romance for me. I'm a writer so I prefer reading the genre I write most often, which is thriller!
I write memoirs as well, but most of my published work is thriller. I am a sucker for a happy ending though! Can't help it. My fav author in the world is Mary Higgins Clark. Love her! I'm reading "The Shadow Of Your Smile" by her now. She's great with the thriller stories and I've never finished a book by her unsatisfied. She always gives a wonderful ending. In my opinion, the ending is what makes or breaks a book. A lot of authors tend to kind of forget the importance of the ending and that leaves readers unsatisfied or with the feeling that something's missing. I avoid books like that--I end up angry when I finish the last page! Lol.
I like other books too. True crime, oh I'm a sucker for that. I like the killer stuff. I guess I have this thing about wanting to know what kind of mind you'd have to have to do the unthinkable. I just want to understand it so badly. I recently finished Charles Manson now and Helter Skelter and wow! The Manson stuff really gets to me. I just can't come close to understanding HOW. What kind of mind? Those books, I really enjoy and I've read so many that it's not even funny. My partner says "you know way too much about killers!" LOL.
I'm not into dark and sickening things though. I can totally handle gruesome, but the whole shock factor gore does not appeal to me.
Another book that I adored was Charlotte Figg Takes Over Paradise. It's totally different from what I normally read, but I got if free on my kindle and LOVED it
I'd recommend that book to anybody. I'm not big on Sci-Fi at all, but I can appreciate most any work. I occasionally enjoy old diaries from WWII and others. They're sometimes interesting.
