How do you feel when the protagonist doesn't make it? I've just been reading a recent (December 2016) offering of short stories by Amy Cross. In Black Pages, a short story in the collection The Ghost of Longthorn Manor and Other Stories, Polly is a character we can identify with but she meets a less than desirable ending.

Note: This is neither a spoiler for the short story nor the collection. :o

I typically read anything but my go to would be YA novels. They are right up my alley so why not.

My go-to is always Sci Fi or Fantasy, especially if I've just finished a book that leaves me feeling sad. There are so many excellent writers and stories in both genres, that I never fail to find a new book or series to dive into.

I love a good mystery. It is as much about the character study of it all as it is about the "who done it" factor.

Romance fore sure! I have only read a few bad romance books and they always interest me. I mostly read contemporary romance books.

I have two go to genres that obsess over. I love to read thrillers / mystery books and I love to read memoirs / autobiographies. Currently I'm reading Anna Kendrick's and it's amazing!

I like mystery and crime fiction.
My go-to authors are currently Faye Kellerman and Mariah Stewart, although I'm looking for new authors because I'm frustrated with contradictions in character actions and timeline continuity.

Does anyone else find glaring editing and continuity issues in the books they read?
I find it takes me out of the story when I notice a repeated action or a repeated section of text.

Horror would have be my go to genre as the first books I ever read as a kid were the goosebumps books. I always liked how you could never be sure if the main character would win or lose in these books which made them more interesting in my opinion.

I am into thriller and horror books like zombie and ghost books. Books like those keeps my interest. I am not into romance novels though because I believe it is not my thing to read.
