Tell Me Something Tuesday with Elena: What to you makes a good book?

Tell Me Something Tuesday

Tell Me Something Tuesday is a weekly discussion hosted by Rainy Day Ramblings.

This week’s question:

What to you makes a good book?

Thousands of book get published every year, but are they all good? Not really.

Good books aren’t always easy to find. To me a good novel needs to:

-have great dialogue: dialogue is very important to me. If it’s sappy, predictable or flat I just won’t go on with the book.

-have strong characters: the characters have to fight for what they want, and show me some kind of willpower and inner strength, otherwise I’ll close the book.

-be thought-provoking: I love novels that offer some food for thought, that make me ponder on several aspects of life. I like for the book to engage my brain.

What about you?

  1. For me, it’s all about character investment. Whether I like the character or not, if I am invested in them, I more times than not, will enjoy the story. Even with the most simplistic story line, an invested character will carry the story well.
