Welcome to the Feature & Follow Hop, hosted by Parajunkee’s View and Alison Can Read!
If you’re here for the first time, I’d love if you could follow via email, RSS, LinkyFollowers or Networked Blogs. Just let me know your follow method of choice in the comments, and I’ll be happy to return the favor.
And if you’re not new, welcome back! Repeat visitors are better than when the husband does the dishes.
Today’s question is:
When you step out of your usual genre, what do you like to read? Best books in that genre?
Um…I don’t…have…a usual genre? I was pretty eclectic before I started this blog. And nowadays, I lean YA and will always jump at fantasy and sci-fi before anything else, but I’ve still read books spanning all sorts of genres. BUT, if I had to pick a genre I read in MOST, it would be kind of a broad speculative fiction umbrella. Books where things happen that couldn’t (or would be extremely unlikely to) happen in real life. Bonus points for taking place in the future. Extra bonus points for relevant use of fantastic creatures. High five if there’s a dragon. Fist bump for space travel.
But outside of that, books I’ve read and loved include The Book Thief, Outlander, The Help, The Hiding Place, The Fault in Our Stars, Pushing the Limits, The Dark Unwinding, and Anna and the French Kiss. And probably a whole bunch more that I’m forgetting.
Seriously, if it’s good, let me know. I don’t like to be pigeonholed.
Happy weekend! Anyone else’s kids on fall break? Mine are out of school for a WHOLE WEEK. Help.
