Genres:  Inspiring stories,mysteries

Why?  I have 2 very different genres that I like to read.  (1) Inspiring stories - Stories that are true to life in a way, could happen or not, and touches your heart type.  Sometimes they are so sad but always leave me feeling OK with the story endings,  I also read similar books in young adult fiction as well.  Stories about the shy, underdog kid or misunderstood young person.  They almost always have a great message to them and happier endings for the main characters.  I like that because I was a very shy kid in school, so I think I read them to better understand my own feelings about who I was then and who I am now!

(2) Mysteries, intrigue and who-dunnit types - I like them with twists and turns to the story that don't come to light until the last chapter or last few pages.  I just recently started reading these books and I do enjoy the way I try to figure it out.  Sometimes I am right and sometimes I am way off.
