Bookish Magic: what does it for you?

There’s something magical that happens when you’re reading a good book isn’t there?

It’s as if you’ve been transported to another place, into another life, experiencing things that you don’t usually, and piecing together situations that, in real life, might be terrifying, but from between the pages of a book are fascinating.

For me, the thing that always grabs my attention, and my imagination, is a good puzzle. A locked room mystery perhaps, or a really compelling ‘why dunnit’. Once there’s a puzzle to be solved, a puzzle with high stakes and lots of tension, then I can’t help but read on.

What does it for you?
