Follow me Friday (#4)


This is a weekly meme hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee

Q: Which book genre do you avoid at all costs and why? 

A: I'm a girl with many likes. Its hard for me to actually hate anything. You see this in my reviews, and especially in my ratings. I just don't find myself hating a lot of things. So I'd have to say I really don't know what book genre I'd avoid at all costs. I've read pretty much every genre, given them a fair try, and liked the book I read in the genre. (Okay, maybe not all, because some authors tend to make up their own genre, but the ones everyone is farmiliar with).

I know what your thinking, impossible for you to like every genre. Well its true! I love paranormal, supernatural, fantasy, romance, contemporary, mystery, science-fiction, thriller, action, tragedy, comedy, historical-fiction, educational, animal first-person, true story, memoirs, and combos of different genres. I've even read a western type book and enjoyed it. So you see, I can't really say I avoid any one genre. I've found a book in each of these genres I thoroughly enjoyed. Does that mean I like every book in these genres? Hell no!

So, yeah. There's my answer ^.^

How about you guys? Leave your links to your FF and I'll be sure to check them out!

  9. I'm really picky about what I read, it's great to see someone who's unbiased! I wish I could be, I just can't get interested in a lot of it. New follower :)

  12. I definitely know what you mean--I have genres I like more than others but I have a hard time thinking I could not find anything I liked in a genre.

    But no, I too try to be open when reading different genres...I just haven't read many categories, and I definitely like some more than others :)

  23. You're like my friend who has read books across the board but yeah, I can still see her leanings on thrillers but to read a representative for each genre is something I like to explore well, except the one I mentioned back in my post. :D Followed back.

  24. Hello, thanks for the follow. It's great that you like so many genres - my own taste is quite narrow I'm afraid. I love the title of your blog by the way. How did you come up with it?

  25. It's rare to find people that like almost everything! Thanks for stopping by!

  26. I think that is definitely the best way to think of it! Even if we have read a bad book in a certain genre, we can't judge every single book of that genre by the same scale. I've read books in a number of genres, but I avoid ones because I expect not to like them. Of course I will try them, since I shouldn't be prejudiced.

    Scaring yourself silly?! No, no, no. Life can be bad enough without freaking myself out of an evening.
