A while ago, I interviewed my readers for a change, and my final question was, “What question have I NOT asked at BTT that you’d love me to ask?” I got some great responses and will be picking out some of the questions from time to time to ask the rest of you. Like now.
Amy and Sarah both asked about genres:
Name a book you love in a genre you normally don’t care for. What made you decide to read it? Did it make you want to try more in that genre?
Bookish Sarah asks an interesting assortment of questions:
What genre do you avoid reading and why?
Well i dont normally read classics. I know its terrible, I’m a self confessed bookworm and i havent read many classics. This is because i had a bad experience, namely The Ambassadors by Henry James and it really put me off reading anymore.
However, i decided to pick up Dracula by Bram Stoker. I enjoyed it so much and got so involved with it i decided that maybe all classics arent so bad after all. I’m now planning on reading more classics, so maybe i shouldnt judge a genre by one book!
As to the genre question i donr avoid many genres my tastes are quite electic. I dont enjoy romance novels too much, there needs to be more story to a book than just the romance side. I havent really read much horror either but that doesnt always appeal to me.
