Musing Mondays

13 Dec

This week’s Musing Mondays prompt asks: “What kind of books do you like to read? Why? Provide specific examples.” I love reading fiction! More specifically, I love reading historical fiction. History has always interested me, yet I don’t enjoy reading nonfiction. Biographies, textbooks, and other nonfiction texts tend to TELL rather than SHOW the reader about the historical event or person being discussed. That’s why I like historical fiction. Novels in this genre weave historical events into interesting stories. Some of my favorite historical fiction novels – both classic and contemporary – include To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck, and The Paris Wife by Paula McLain.
