Discussion Challenge 2016 #1 - Female/Male POV

In case you don't know what this is all about. It's a way to get bloggers talking more, to discuss books or blogging. It's actually really a cool idea. I don't do enough discuss posts, so this is an awesome way to start into that. This is my first post and it's also serving as my post to let everyone know I'm joining this as per the rules found here.

My goal is: 13-24 – Creative Conversationalist

So what I wanted to discuss is something that my partner, little sister, and I have talked about countless times. Well, it's actually them ganging up on me and saying I'm narrowed minded and should branch out more.

I've found that for me, it's harder to read from the view point of a male. Any male, no matter the age. Don't get me wrong I've read and enjoyed a few books that are lead by a male character, like Harry Potter, Oblivion, & Intertwined. So I don't hate them, I just have a hard time connecting to the character that way. I mean, there's a saying about how women will never understand men and vice versa. I can write men, easily.

My little sister can read from any point of view and enjoy the story, though she prefers a male POV, like Percy Jackson, Harry Potter, Maze Runner and more I don't know about I'm sure haha.

My partner can read from any but mostly goes for male POV as he is a male so yeah... but he's read things that are led by females and enjoyed it all the same.

So my question to all of you lovely people is this, can you read a book no matter who the main character is or do you have a preference?
