Q: Which book genre do you avoid at all costs and why?

I do not have a genre that I avoid at all costs, but I do notice that my favorite genre seems to swift from time to time.  I will go through phases where I read almost exclusively YA and then a lot of classics and then a lot of different adult books.  So many books catch my attention that it is hard to say that I would not find at least one book in that genre that I like!

Lately, it seems to be a lot of YA books.  And I am hosting a giveaway for one of the books that I think will be my favorite for 2012:

What book has surprised you the most?  Maybe you thought you would not like it and did or maybe you thought you would love it and did not?

  3. New Follower here,

    I answered with the genre of Horror, I'm just not into getting scared all that much. Guess I'm a giant wuss. :)

    I was kind of surprised that I didn't like Nightshade by Andrea Cremer. I just read that one a couple of weeks ago. Have you read it?

  5. @Oh! Paper Pages Thank you for stopping by!

    @Mad Worm Books Horror scare me, too. But I want to read Stephen King so bad because I hear over and over again that he is a fantastic writer. But the movies of his books terrify me!

    @Celine Thanks! :)

    @demureconnoisseur I can't usually handle being scared either so you are not alone! Maybe it is because I like to read right before bed?

    @Nicola That's exactly how I feel too!

  6. Got to love the YA! Definitely my favorite type of book to read, although I'm a fan of the classics and some adult books as well =)

    I'm like you. I go from one phase to the next. I kind of do the same with the type of movies I watch. For example, I've been watching a lot of Disney movies. I don't know why, its just a phase.

  16. @Kristan I am starting to read more classics and now that I do not have to read them for class I love them more!

    @Little Blue Pig Who doesn't love a good disney movie!

    @Lucy Thank you for following!

    @Cheryl Its so hard for me to judge historical books because some of them I love!

    @Tribute Books Thank you for following!

    @Shantal I wish I wasn't such a wimp because horror books scare me but I really want to read Stephen King because I have heard so many great things about his writing!

    @Totally Booked Thank you for following!

    @J.B. I love YA too--that seems to be what I read the most!

    @Melliane Thanks for the return--and I definitely think that it all depends on the mood when I go to pick the next book.

    @Linda I have been favoring YA a lot lately.

    @Sandra I definitely have been favoring YA lately but I have a couple of Adult books coming up soon. :)

  17. Hopping through. I usually read a little of everything. I wish I read more classics though.

  18. Hopping by :) I agree about the phases, it seems that once I get an interest in something I just hoard more like it until I get distracted by something else!
