The Herd Presents – Blog All About It!
2nd – 8th – Do you prefer to blog about (a) specific book genre(s), or do you have an eclectic blog? (submitted by Maria @ A Night’s Dream of Books)
I think this question goes right along with my post from last week. Basically, I will blog about any and everything!
I have always loved horror. Give me a zombie book any day of the week! YES!
But recently, my tastes have changed to thrillers; psychological thrillers! I also absolutely love cozy mysteries. There’s just something about them that reminds me of romance, but gives me that mysterious element that I crave.
I can’t always read mysteries and thrillers though. As much as I love them, I also enjoy YA. The innocence of youth, the mistakes, and the lessons learned, from a psychology standpoint, is so wonderful, to me. I love a fascinating character arc. John Green is one author that has a great way of adding a character arc in that will make you scream while you love every bit of the pain you’re going through. How does he even do that?!
I also just recently started venturing into Science Fiction. I love Sci Fi that is gripping and that I can actually see while I read. If you don’t like Sci Fi, try out John Scalzi. He is an artist with a pen! His writing is impeccably beautiful and so good it’s almost tragic. I freaking love every book I’ve read of his.
Then you have Terry Pratchett. For me, this is an anomaly. I should not like Fantasy in any form. But he broke the mold. He created this world that has both horror and love, trust and anxiety. I re-read his Discworld books every year and every year I find myself learning more about his characters. I don’t like fantasy but I will do anything to get every single Discworld book!
My super power is EMPATHY, so while I enjoy watching characters go through some stuff, I also need a break. Which is where the romance comes in. There’s not a ton of romance on this blog, but it’s there, in bits and pieces. The main character prob has a dog, because any cover with a dog on it is going to get my vote.
So, the short answer, is that I’m pretty eclectic. BUT the long answer is that I definitely love genres that have a tinge of horror to them.
Do you resonate with a specific genre or are you eclectic?
