Hop, hop, hop!!

Book Blogger Hop

Every week Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books (http://www.crazy-for-books.com/) hosts a blog hop. Put your link in, post a comment and you can discover a lot of great blogs. The Hop lasts Friday-Monday every week. This week's question/task: Why do you read the genre you do? What draws you to it? Just one genre? I'm not sure I can pick. I have a couple of YA books coming up as part of blog tours. I also have adult books on my reading pile. I'm also reading Life by Keith Richards. I'm all over the map. I enjoy mysteries because reading them is like solving a big puzzle. I love puzzles. But if I had to pick, I would go with books that focus on family drama. Those seem more real to me. I can relate to a family in turmoil more than I can a paranormal romance or dystopian novel. How about everyone else?

Here are some blogs I came across:

Notes: I'm hosting a giveaway for Delirious by Daniel Palmer, details here http://asiturnthepages.blogspot.com/p/delirious-giveaway.html

Also, I'm looking for takers for my What's Up Tweeps?! feature, details here http://asiturnthepages.blogspot.com/p/whats-up-tweeps.html

  2. Here I am hopping on by...

    I went all over the map with this question on my blog. I read and enjoy almost every genre of fiction out there. There’s no way I could just pick one.

    So I talked about all of them. Even romance fiction (sort of)! I invite you to hop over to my blog at http://www.howardsherman.net and see for yourself.

  3. I'm glad no feels pigeon-holed into one genre. I like just about everything (no sci-fi though)! I'm off to check out responses. Happy reading everyone!

  4. Hopping through. I like a lot of different genres too, although I read mostly YA.
    I prefer books with happy endings, regardless of the genre.
