 Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about a story format.
How do you feel about books written in a differing format – whether this be journals or letters (epistolary), verse novels, or any other form? Is this something you enjoy? Or do you prefer straight forward chapter prose.
  I am a “Plain Jane” chapter reader.  Unless, say a portion of a journal or a letter is part of the story line.   Then there is the “mind over matter” chapter format which is my favorite.  Small chapters, say 3-7 pages.  It seems that I read those books faster.  I will tell myself..”just one more chapter” and then I realize I have read 10 chapters especially if the book is a can’t put down to start with.

  1. I'm the same way with books with short chapters. "Just one more chapter" then it ends on a cliffhanger so I read a little more. Then I'm so close to the next chapter, I'll just read to that – then it ends on a cliffhanger…

    Evelyn David ('Murder Off The Books' and 'Murder Takes The Cake') is good at that. Or should I say, bad at that since I get no sleep!

    My Monday Musings is here.

  2. The Memory Thief looks interesting. I don't care much for super long chapters. I just read a book with super long chapters and it took me forever. Have a great reading week!

  3. LOL – I am a "just one more chapter" reader too!

    Sonnets for Sinners sound intriguing.

    The Memory Thief looks interesting.

  4. As to formats, the key is, I think, the skill of the writer. a great writer can tell a great story in many formats. But I tend toward the straight prose. I am not very daring.

  5. Format? Format? We dunt need no stinkin' format! (Cheech & Chong, remember?) Okay, so I'm outta my league here. Sorry! Stopped by to say hey! So Hey. Was wondering if you have a minute could you stop by my blog. I need some comments on my post today because I'm pitching this new company that I deal with & I don't want them to think I have no one interested. Sure would appreciate it. Thanks. Anyone else who'd like to come along is appreciated too. ttyl {{HUGS}}

  6. Thanks for stopping by CMash 🙂 I'm a little late, but better late than never. Had a busy day yesterday so just now getting around to seeing what everyone is reading.

    I can't believe how many challenges you've got goin' on. I promised myself not to join any this year because it got kind of overwhelming. But you go girl!

    Love the cover of the Memory Thief. I tend to pick books based on their cover. Not sure if that's good or bad, but that's what I do. Have a great week!
