Book Blogger Hop 14th Jan- 17th Jan

Book Blogger Hop
I love the Blog Hop hosted by, and especially the weekly questions (and of course having a nose at other people's answers) This week's question is:

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

I read a lot of different genres, although fantasy doesn't really float my boat. I really like a good thriller that draws me in and makes me want to keep reading to find out what happens. When I get engrossed in a book like that it's pure escapism.  I also enjoy historical books, particularly modern history and stories from other countries. I don't mind whether it's a true story or fiction based on real events. I love to feel like I'm learning about events and about places I may never get to visit.

Stopping by from the hop! I love historical fiction and contemporary fiction. I tend to read a variety depending on what I'm in the mood for or what kind of day I had :)

Have a good weekend!

Hopping through. I read lots of different genres too. I used to hate fantasy but I've really gotten into it recently.
