Talk to Me Tuesday: 2/1

This week's question: What is your favorite genre to read, and why?

What a loaded question if ever I heard one, as if I am not far too complex of a human being.  I regularly contradict myself, and am rather unreliable in those things I like over time.

The true answer would have to be I like whatever genre the awesome book I am reading comes from.  While I have not sampled all genres, by any means, I have not stayed faithful to any either.  For the most part I dally in YA since I feel safe wandering those shelves.  Before I started into Goodreads or book blogging I often felt a bit self conscience when at the library.  Here I am crusing the YA shelves as well lets just say not a youth physically.  Now that I know I am not alone I don't worry about it anymore.

Wait did I get off topic. . .sorry.  Okay, so I went through the whole vampire phase and many others.  It seems the one true thing I am always anxious to find in all of my reads is a little light romance.  Well, that and of course, a good involving book that makes the material world fade away.

How about you what is your favorite genre? 


  1. I felt that way too in the book store. I felt like the girls, there were never any boys except my son that I dragged with me, were looking at me and thinking, you're too old to be here. But then I thought about who was writing about a lot of these books. And I could always pretend I was buying a present. Now, I don't care! And I read prett much anything YA. My library YA section doesn't get much action so I'm never embarrassed there except when I have to pick up my holds in the kids section because that's where the YA books from other libraries come from are held.


  2. How interesting! As a librarian, I have the perfect excuse for browsing the YA shelves... It's for my patrons! (okay... It's really for me.)

  3. My favorite is fantasy and paranormal. But I like dystopian, too. Love looking at Goodreads and the library! But I'm addicted to the bookstore. It's too close to my house!
