Q: Jumping Genres: Ever pick up a book from a genre you usually don't like and LOVE it? Tell us about it and why you picked it up in the first place.
I like to do that. It's so much fun to read a book you normally wouldn't read. I already found some pearls among those books. It is a good thing to look outside the box you created for yourself. I started to read my first zombie book a year ago (Carrie Ryan) and since then, I'm hooked. When I was younger, I only read thrillers until I started in Harry Potter. I found a fantastic new world and now I can't imagine my world without fantasy books.
But the book that I especially want to pick is Mary E. Pearson - The adoration of Jenna Fox. I posted a review about this book not so long ago. I am not a fan of science fiction, but this was such a different twist to it and I fell in love with this book! The blurb sounded fascinating and that's what pushed me to read it.
But there are limits.. I don't like biographies, western, chick lit and some other things, and I don't touch them. I don't want to force myself into liking something and I never met a book that spoke 'read me!'
So what I want to tell you is: explore different genres! Try out other books. Just go to the library and find yourself something new (I'm not that rich, so I don't buy random books. I'm too picky for that) It can be so much fun. I must say that I don't do it a lot, because I enjoy the books I read now too much. But sometimes I feel like trying out something 'strange'.
