Realistic Fiction seems like real life, with characters dealing with real life problems. The plot often takes place in the present time. The situations are true or could be, but the main characters are fictional.

“ In my opinion, there are two things that can absolutely not be carried to the screen: the realistic presentation of the sexual act and praying to God. ”

[close] We were inspired to make this group by the Mother-Daughter Book Club. (A must-read, by the way.) We are huge fans of many very different genres, from The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe to Murder is Bad Manners, and we also enjoy creating stories and poetry ourselves. We have learned much of what we know from our friend and mentor, Vanessa, affectionately known as Nessie. We would like to thank her. We hope you enjoy taking part in the Drabbers Book Club! (Please note that our group name is an inside joke.)

[close] Reading takes you places. Where in the world will your next book take you? If you love world literature, translated works, travel writing, or exploring the world through books, you have come to the right place! ATW80 began in 2009 as a challenge on TNBBC. The separate group was established in 2011. Anyone can join and participate in the challenges or readings at any time. Challenge participation is not a requirement of joining. Anyone who loves reading books from around the world is welcome here. The main purpose of this group is to travel the world through books, experiencing new authors and cultures along the way. Want to read about the world? We have close to 50,000 books cataloged by setting and more are added each week. I personally started reading around the world in 2008. This venture has introduced me to far off lands, fresh viewpoints, and many new authors I might not have discovered otherwise. Here is a record of my travels since 2009: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/18478768-diane-s-world-travels-by-book I have worked very hard gathering resources for others to use and coming up with new activities.
