This week, I'm tired and getting over a cold (so are my son and husband - so it's been a long week!), so I'm going to try to keep this week's question REALLY easy!
I've noticed that some book bloggers specialize in a certain genre, or even a specific niche within a genre (lots of vampire book blogs out there, Christian books, health, etc), while others read and review quite a variety of books.
Today's question: Do you have a specialized blog where you only review a certain genre or type of book? If so, what is your favorite thing about that type of book? If not, what is/are your favorite genre(s)? What makes that genre(s) a favorite?
Favorite Genre(s)? (Check all that apply)
My Answer: If you would have asked me this a year ago, I would have said my favorites were either romance, or historical romance. Since starting my blog and meeting so many great bloggers, authors and publicists, I've been exposed to some really great new books (and genres), and I now LOVE reading a great variety of books. . . except maybe really scary or gory books!
I do still really enjoy romance and historical romance because of the flirtations and the happily ever after feeling.
I love historical fiction (and romance) because of the glimpse of another time that I get. I live now, but it doesn't mean that I don't appreciate or want to know what it would have been like to live in a different time.
I really enjoy Christian fiction because of the feeling I have when I finish a book - uplifted, generally happy, like I can recommend the book to friends and family (my Mom!) without blushing or worrying about language.
I've also come to really appreciate some non-fiction books. I have learned A LOT over the past few months, about myself, about health, about beauty, about cooking, about family, about . . . . can I keep going here?
I review all types of books on my blog, and I just love it!
Looking forward to reading everyone's answers!!
