This Week's Question:: 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.
Oh, this is actually quite hard. This isn't going to be exactly a "genre", but I don't usually consciously pick up books with entirely or mostly futuristic settings with dabs of sci-fi, if you will. I would always go for the Victorian setting or historical fiction, etc. Some occasional instances where I give in to these books would be like for...
"Cinder" by Marissa Meyer - loved the synopsis and was really interested.
"The Hunger Games" by Suzanne Collins - heard how epicly good it was from every other person I met.
"Academy 7" by Anne Osterlund - had NO idea that it was futuristic, fell for it anyway, and was a melted puddle of admiration after finishing it.
To be honest, I've read a bit of almost every genre, so although I have timeless favourites like my beloved historical fictions, I don't exactly have a genre that I'm really against or that I'd shy too much away from. Hoping to keep an open mind! ^_~
What do you guys think about this question? Link me up and I shall be happily hopping (tomorrow morning XD)
