Today's topic is all about genres.
I'm a glutton for genres. I can't choose just one genre to love and adore. I can't even pick three. No, I'm a glutton for almost all the genres. Well, except for westerns and mysteries. I don't care for westerns because, well, westerns have guns and horses and the like. How many westerns have I read to date? One. So maybe I'm being slightly unfair. But still. It only makes sense to carry over my allergy to westerns from tv (and film) to books. Right?
Back on topic, what genres do I love the most. (Notice how I added that little 's'!)
- historical fiction
- historical romance
- historical fantasy
- science fiction (most, most especially dystopias, apocalyptic, post-apocalyptic, etc.)
- realistic fiction
I do tend to read in batches. Some months are heavier in certain genres than other months. But I could never read just one genre of book.
I think 2010 (so far) has seen a bit more historical fiction than normal. But I bet it averages out by the time the year is over!
