Hi guys! My book tags are getting crazy again, and to think I had them under control (ha! 😜) Today I’m going to be doing the This is my Genre, Tell Me Yours tag, which the lovely Birdie tagged me to do. I thank you for that, and am excited to start! 🙂

- Tag as many people as you want
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE GENRE?
That is such a hard question. I bounce all over the place. I guess you can say that I truly love reading contemporaries because I feel like I can relate to those a lot better than say fantasy. A second favourite would have to be horror/thriller. I am a sucker for Stephen King, anything he writes I will read. I have yet to read his whole collect because he just keeps writing!
WHO IS YOUR FAVOURITE AUTHOR FROM THAT GENRE?
From contemporary, boy that’s hard. Jodi Picoult is very good at her craft. Ellen Hopkins is brilliant. Ugh this is too hard.
And obviously from horror: Stephen King.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT THE GENRE THAT KEEPS PULLING YOU BACK?
Well as I mentioned above, I love the fact that I can relate to the stories; not all, but quite a few. I find I just read them so quickly.
I go back to horror because I like scary things. Sometimes I wonder why because some things are just so scary.
WHAT IS THE BOOK THAT STARTED YOUR LOVE FOR YOUR FAVOURITE GENRE?
Can I say I have no idea? I just think of all the nice wonderful books I’ve read and it just makes me happy enough to pick up another, and another, and another…
IF YOU HAD TO RECOMMEND AT LEAST ONE BOOK FROM YOU FAVOURITE GENRE TO A NON-READER/SOMEONE LOOKING TO START THAT GENRE, WHAT BOOK WOULD YOU CHOOSE AND WHY?
If I just pretend I’m trying to get my mother to read a book I could probably answer this, actually I’m pushing her to read The Rosie Project as we speak, (she is reading it, no idea what her thoughts are yet). I feel like anyone can like that book. They’re funny, they have their ups and downs it’s quite perfect.
WHY DO YOU READ?
Because I might die if I don’t… a tad dramatic, but I have a flair for the dramatic 😝. But in all seriousness I don’t know what it is, I get this feeling, like eating a really good piece of cake, when I read that I just have to keep going. It’s almost like a high, so good.
I am going to be lazy and say tag you’re it! Feel free to do this if you’d like. It was fun and I enjoyed playing along! 🙂
