That's My Type

It’s super easy to say that I love books that are well written, have a smooth plot, good character development, and excellent world-building but what does that even really mean? My idea of good character development might be completely and totally different from your idea of good character development. Also, those criteria can change for me depending on; the genre of that book that I’m reading, if it’s fiction or nonfiction, when it was published, if it’s a translation, etc.

At the end of the day, these are the type of books that I tend to fall in love
