I want to read more, especially being an author. However, every time I pick up a book and began to read it I don't feel engaged and stop. Also, the books that are popular at the library are always checked out months in advance, and I can't afford to buy them all. Can anyone suggest any interesting books that will keep my attention? My favorite genre is horror and thriller/suspense. But I also love romance novels, self help books etc. I don't really get into science fiction or westerns, but I should I read these anyway to broaden my mind?
