Attention to Care

What gets people to read is my question today?

I am thinking of what makes me read something and I am struggling to know what. Here are some of what gets me to read:

  1. I like a twist in a tale, something that isn’t predictable, an unusual title. I love a love story but I also like a good thriller, I have a wide taste in books, but I’m usually drawn to a good synopsis, and a good opening chapter and something fast paced but not with too many characters to follow. I like long books so I can become immersed, I also like to start books that I know will continue into further books, so I can see characters develop. I hate books that just end and leave you having to make your own conclusions about the outcome.
