The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. It was relaunched on February 15, 2013 by Billy@Coffee Addicted Writer. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.
This week’s topic is:
Genres I refuse to read!
I don’t think there is any genre that I refuse to read. There are a few that I don’t read often, like non-fiction and historical fiction, but if the story sounds good to me I will pretty much read it.
I have found myself being a little more picky when I am choosing my books lately. I am spending more time looking at reviews before picking up a book, especially the ARCs. I have found lately that when I don’t do this then the book is more likely to be a disappointment. There is just not as much time to read lately and I would rather read something I know I will enjoy than take a risk on an unknown.
I have found myself lately turning away from books with certain topics, like feminist takes on classics or fairy tales and ones that are gender swaps of favorite stories. But that is only because of personal taste and the fact that these types of stories just don’t work for me. But I have read a few that have, so there you go. Nothing is forbidden in my books and I will read anything that promises to be a really good story with solid characters.
I am interested in seeing other people’s answers to this question. Most bookworms I know don’t usually hate any one genre, but I have met a few who do.
