I’d like to order a fantasy book with some cheese and pepperoni toppings.
Have you ever had a craving for a particular kind of food? Some days I just want to eat meat: beef or fried chicken. The same thing happens to me with books and movies. I get book hungry, or I get a craving for a particular kind of story.
Sometimes, it’s for a fantasy story that isn’t trying to make a statement about life, but is just trying to tell a good story where everything ends well. Other times, it’s a craving for fantasy mixed with romance, or it’s for a good mystery, comedy, or thriller. There are also times when I’ll read or watch anything, ignoring the fact that I might regret it if the story turns out to be sad, bad, or soap opera-ish.
