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.
