Novel Th(ink) is the new name for our Thinking out Loud (discussion posts). We saw somewhere that someone had Thinking out Loud so we thought, hey, let’s come up with a new name…and Novel Th(ink) came to life. I bet you all can tell why we chose this. It’s basically our name, but let’s you know our minds are at work and we were thinking (or were we)? You’ll never know, we’re pretty good at hiding how our discussion posts come together. Well, anyway, I’m introducing our new name today because I have something I’d like to discuss, my favorite genre.
Erica’s Favorite Genre
Today we usually do Top Ten Tuesday but it was a topic we chose to not do this week. But, it tied in with something I have wanted to talk about for some time now. The topic was Ten Books I Enjoyed Recently That Weren’t My Typical Genre/Type of Book.On a previous post of mine I told you guys I would share with you my favorite genre…and how it would surprise you. Well the thing is…I don’t have one. I know, this may not be an awesome discussion because some of you may be with me in this.
I read the TTT topic and was like, but do I have that typical genre I go for and lately, it’s a hell no. I used to absolutely adore contemporaries but now I love fantasy. I think I just read anything I’m in the mood for and with me being a girl that mood changes more than I’d like to admit.
I don’t even have a preferred genre. Whatever sounds good at the time I pick it up. Anything that looks good, whatever it may be, I’ll pick it up. It really hit me lately. I have been in a slump for about a month now and people say, “pick up a book from your favorite genre,” and I’m like oh shit, what is that? I have no clue what book that may be or what I should do. Then they say re-read a favorite and I’m like okay…Illuminae (sci-fi), The Hunger Games* (Dystopian), The Wrath and the Dawn (Fantasy) or All the Bright Places (Contemporary). See my dilemma. My top four books are different genres so there’s no definitive answer I have here guys.
I don’t know what to choose when people ask me this question. I don’t know what my preferred genre is. I am an indecisive little gal and it’ll haunt me forever.
What is your favorite genre? How do you know it’s your favorite? Does it give you the warm, fuzzy feelings? Tell me. Help me be more decisive.
*Speaking of The Hunger Games if you are interested in putting books up to fight till their death (no books will actually be harmed) then you need to sign up for The Hunger Games: Bookish Edition.
