Fantasy Rocks!

Have you participated in our summer reading genre challenge yet?  This week we are focusing on Fantasy.

Why read fantasy?  Story lines feature good versus evil, and protagonists battle and ultimately conquer the dark forces. The characters often attain special magical gifts, and the story lines explore ways to discover one's own potential. Characters may include mythical creatures --dragons, unicorns, elves, wizards -- as well as animals that are more may also find a home in Fantasy. Quests commonly drive the plot, and adventure elements play an important role. Elaborately detailed settings describe another world, often Earth, which does not follow earth's time line. Thus the setting may be a pseudo-Medieval world with knights and dragons or a fictional future world with elves on motorcycles. Gritty urban settings are almost as popular as more traditional historical ones. 

Thrillers & Suspense Rocks!

Have you participated in our summer reading genre challenge yet?  This week we are focusing on Thrillers & Suspense novels.

Why read a thriller or suspense story? Thrillers are page-turning, heart-pounding stories we read because they are very much about life as we currently know it.  We read them for the satisfying moment when our hero triumphs over the bad guys.  Regardless of the setting, fathomless levels of secrecy and duplicity lead to moles,  double agents, and opportunities to inflict betrayal.  Current events, politics,  contemporary values, and state-of-the-art technology form the backdrop of the story.
