Hop, hop, hop!!

Book Blogger Hop

Every week Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books ( 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

Also, I'm looking for takers for my What's Up Tweeps?! feature, details here


  1. Book becomes our escape from reality regardless the genre. :) You can read my answer at Clandestine Sanctuary. Have a great weekend!

  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 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.
