Bookish Blog Hops Summer Hop, Day 28

The Bookish Blog Hops Summer Hop started on 1st June when I kicked things off with a post about the books we wished we'd written. Since then we've been visiting the different blogs of participating book bloggers to answer a variety of book related questions.

Yesterday for example, we were hosted by Fee at eBook Addicts to discuss how we feel about cliffhangers. Check out the post here.

For this post we're discussing our favourite genres to read.

Those of you that know me, know I love thrillers, especially psychological thrillers. I’ll happily read anything that falls into the crime, mystery genre too though.

The thing I like most about this genre is that it's nearly always thought provoking. It makes me think about my own morals, and how I feel about certain topics and themes. I also love trying to work out who did it, and why. In order for this genre to be good the characters need to be well developed. You need to feel a connection with them. Then, of course, there's the action and plot twists. These types of books tend to be page turners that I struggle to put down.

I also like easy read “chick-lit” and romance novels. These are my go-to for when I just want to relax.

What are the most popular literary genres?

Let's see what the rest of the gang had to say...

Cozy mysteries always. Although I like mysteries and psychological thrillers too, my all time favorites in any mood are cozy mysteries. I prefer writing such stories too.

I love any read any genre but my go to are romance, thriller and cozy mysteries.

I will read any genre. Literary, historical fiction, romance and memoirs are my best, like Angela's Ashes or All the Light we Cannot See. I am also a big fan of science fiction, especially when it plays with time, dystopian novels and thrillers.

Urban fantasy is my favorite.  I love the layering of the magical world on top of our own. The MC is most often a good guy (or girl), strong but sometimes flawed. I love the snarkiness that a lot of them have. Not to mention that it frequently incorporates many other genres like suspense, horror, and romance.

The list of genres I absolutely will not read is far easier to list than the ones I will absolutely read! Fantasy is a big one, with all its subgenres: urban fantasy, epic fantasy, sci-fantasy, high fantasy, low fantasy, fairy tales… Then there’s sci-fi, from cyberpunk and steampunk (pretty much any “punk” at all!) to hard sci-fi and alternate histories. I’ll read crime thrillers and cozy mysteries; supernatural and paranormal. I love them all!

Urban Fantasy is always a winner for me. I usually read Romance and Fantasy. And Urban Fantasy is kind of a connection between the two. It often has a Romance element. And it’s a bit more relatable for me than high fantasy worlds.

Paranormal romance is my favorite, but I’ll usually take a break and go for thriller in between.
