Ivana 200Invested Ivana – Emotionally Invested in Characters and Worlds


Co-Founder | Freelance Editor

Why I read:  I read fiction to distract my mind from real-life problems.

Favorite Genres:  Urban fantasy, fantasy, historical fiction, and most things supernatural and paranormal. In my books, I want mystery, adventure, challenge, some humor, a lot of karmic smackdown, and the occasional bloody justice.

Reading Style: I love books that go deep into characters and worlds. I really want to know the characters, to be able to invest emotionally in them and their challenges. I like learning about cultures, so understanding the world is important to me as well.

Audiobooks:  I also love audiobooks when the narrators are good.  I think reading a book and listening to it are two very different experiences and work on different areas of the brain.  Some narrators do such an amazing job (e.g. Jim Dale with the Harry Potter series, Emily Grey with the Parasol Protectorate series, Lorelei King with the Charley Davidson series) that the experience just shouldn’t be missed.
