Book Blogger Hop - My Choice of Genre

I love joining in with the links other people host on their blogs, so when I stumbled across this Book Blogger Hop, I was very excited and bursting to get started!  Every week, a different prompt is given for us to answer, based on our love for books and reading.  Seeing as I am an avid book lover but dont always get to post about it, this is my perfect opportunity to get motivated and write more about reading!!  To join in, and visit others answers visit Book Blogger Hop.

Todays prompt is:

“Many of us primarily read one genre of books, with others sprinkled in. If authors stopped writing that genre, what genre would you start reading? Or would you give up reading completely if you couldn’t read that genre anymore?”

I have a wide genre of books that I read, anything from chick-lit, to childrens books, biographies and fantasy.  Its quite hard to choose my favourite genre, but if I take a closer look at my bookself, I have more chick-lit books than anything.  I think I am drawn to this genre mostly because I can relate to it and there is nothing more thrilling than reading about something I have experienced.  This genre also helps with my writing, as they say writers take their ideas from their own experiences, who hasn't fallen in love in life? Or had some kind of predicament that affects their choices in life?  We all have something to share and chick lit is probably the biggest genre that takes up the shelves in bookshops.
However, if I couldnt read that genre any more, I still couldnt give up reading.  There is so much more out there and we will never get to experience it if we dont venture out of our comfort zone.  I have stumbled across many a good book by trying something new and this has led to me enjoying a whole new genre of books.  As long as its written well, and has some excitement to it, im happy.

  2. Aww thank u for ur message! My love for books grows every day so this blog hop was perfect xx

  3. I agree --- even if writers in one genre that I read most stopped writing, I'd still find plenty to read (although I would miss those other books).

    Happy Hopping!

  4. I agree Jo, I would certainly miss the genre I read the most! X

  5. I read a wide range of things too. There are so many different things to read even if new books in a favorite genre stopped being published. Please come see what I would read.
