Follow Friday


Feature and Follow is a blog hop that was started by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Each week a different question is posted by our hosts and we will answer! This is a great opportunity for bloggers to network and interact.  This weeks question is:

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

To be perfectly honest, I don't think there is any genre that I don't read at all.  There are one or two that I don't read if I can help it, but when push comes to shove, I'll read anything.  I'm not a huge fan of political thrillers and books about Ireland aren't my favourites (not sure why exactly), but really I like to think that if it's a good book it won't matter to me what the genre is.  Perhaps that's because I work in libraries for a living, and it's hard to recommend books and genres if you haven't read them yourself.  I'm not sure how Christinabean feels, but I think she's much like me on this one.

  1. I feel pretty much the way you do. I'll read most anything -- but -- if it's non-fiction it better be compelling, or I give up.

    1. I try to be as open-minded as I can, but sometimes it's difficult.

  6. I wish I were that open minded. I can't stand sci-fi. I've tried a few but just can't do it.

    1. I figure that that I must have read something early on that put me off Ireland, but I don't know what. I just know I generally don't enjoy them. Odd really.
