Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Crazy for Books.
This week’s question:
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?
Well. I’m at a loss. The main bulk of what I read is fiction, but there are so many sub-genres that I really couldn’t pinpoint what is it I tend to favor. Also, I’ve been trying to broaden my reading this year & it seems like I’m doing a pretty good job of it, since I’m clearly unable to answer this very well.
I’ve noticed if I read too much of something, I tire of it fairly quickly. Dan Brown ushered in a whole army of authors/books trying to capitalize on the whole ‘historical-mystery-thriller-SECRET-SOCIETIES!!!!’ deal. …which I loved. However, there are only so many times I can read about the same secret society with the same nefarious schemes before I’ve had enough.
Getting back to the question, I’m not really sure what genre I would move on to. I do like a bit of everything. Lately I’ve been reading more and more sci-fi, so I suppose I would continue the move.
I don’t think I would ever stop reading entirely. That’s absurd!
