 Q: When you step out of your USUAL genre what do you like to read? Best books in that genre?

I think this year since I started blogging I've started reading a lot of books in different genres that I maybe wouldn't have without blogging. I hadn't really read an YA books before starting my blog and I love the genre now especially dystopian YA which I can't get enough of my favourite being The Hunger Games. I'm also getting into reading vampire books which I really haven't enjoyed before but I read I Am Legend which was amazing and recently finished The Immortal Rules which I loved so will definitely read more of those type of books soon. 

Also I used to think that I wouldn't enjoy sci-fi but I started playing the Mass Effect PS3 games and from then on I just couldn't get enough of sci-fi. At the moment I'm reading alot of YA sci-fi books like Cinder, Earth Girl and hopefully in the near future (because they look so good!) the Across the Universe series. I'd love some recommendations for adult sci-fi books though too :) 

One other genre that I really don't read is contemporary fiction or romance. But my guilty pleasure is Nicholas Sparks. I love his books when I need to read something easy, light and fluffy. 


  1. Great answer! I too have been exposed to a variety of different genres due to blogging.
    Here's my FF.
    Happy Friday!

  2. Great answer! I've only read one Nicholas Sparks books, but I really enjoyed it! :D New follower via GFC. My FFs are at Musings on Fantasia and LKHill. Happy Friday! :D

  3. Thanks so much for stopping by, hon - delighted to return the follow. As for me, I love a good romance, provided it's part of a good story.

  4. I really like my supernatural/ speculative fiction books, so for me, reading outside my comfort zone means literary, contemporary fiction & historical romance.

  7. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Now following you back via GFC :)

    Also, the Across the Universe series is really good! Or at least, the first one is, I haven't had a chance to get my hands on the second one yet!

  8. I also love The Hunger Games. I haven't read any of the other books. But I will definitely check them out! ^^

    Nicholas Sparks writes amazing books!

  9. I love sci-fi it's so much fun and usually based off of things that you can imagine actually happening.

  10. I love sci-fi that is easy to read and when it doesn't get too technical. I've never much cared for vampire novels, but obviously the majority of young adults disagree with me!
