Tuesday Thingers

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?

General Literature / Fiction
Historical Fiction/Romance
Science Fiction/Fantasy
General Non-Fiction
Biography / Memoir
Health, Mind, Body

My answer: My blog isn't dedicated to any particular genre. I review whatever books I happen to be reading. I do have my own favorite genres though. I love romantic suspense, cozy mysteries, thrillers, and romance. Some paranormals and historical western romances, too.

I've read those genres for years and they are the ones that can transport me to another place and/or time. I can escape the real world for a few hours. I prefer books that can make me forget the stresses of everday life.

  1. I also review whatever I happen to have read. These days it is a lot of ARCs and review books...

  2. Isn't that the beauty of books - they take us away to so many different places - both in a physical transport and sometimes in an emotional adventure. I went for a few too many years not reading at all - you know, four children, work, etc. Now it seems to be all I want to do.

  3. Yikes! I wanted to let you know that the poll wasn't working on my original post, so I deleted it and redid it - it IS working now! :) Wendi

  4. I review pretty much everything/anything I read and think others would be interested in.

  5. I love the phrase "cozy mysteries."

    And I agree with you on the virtures of "escaping" the real world.

  6. Guess I'll have to start looking for a cozy mystery - it does sound like fun!

    Thanks for stopping by and participating in Thingers last week! I've got the post up for this week. ~ Wendi


Thank you for stopping by and visiting my blog! I always love reading comments and getting to know my readers!

After some careful consideration, I've decided to become an award-free blog. Although I appreciate and am honored by each and every award I've received, your comments and friendship are enough award for me. Thank you all so much for your thoughtfulness.

Due to way too many spam comments, I disabled the Anonymous User comments. We'll see if this works, otherwise I'll have to go back to word verification.
