Booking Through Thursday

Booking Through Thursday

Q:   Name a book you love in a genre you don't care for. What made you decide to read it? Did it make you want to try more in that genre?
       It would have to be The Hunger Games, on the recommendation of my daughter.
       I ended up reading the whole series.

Q:   What genre do you avoid reading and why?
        Science Fiction and horror. They just don't interest me, especially if the story is way out there.


  1. I avoid YA and hate paranormal stuff. Werewolves etc are NOT my cup of tea!

    Here is my BTT post!

  2. I must agreed on horror though. I'll imagine it and will end up having nightmare. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I have heard great things about The Hunger Games but I just don't know if I can suck it up and read it. Maybe I'll pick it up at some point though and try.

    Here is my Booking Through Thursday

  4. I used to shy away from horror and sci fi, but they've become some of my favorites. I loved The Hunger Games, but dystopia is right up my alley. Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Yeah if it's completely out there i might not enjoy it either, thanks for stopping by today!

  6. I forgot about sci fi and horror, I don't read those genres either.

    Thanks for the visit today.

  7. I think The Hunger Games won over a lot of people.

  8. I'm probably the one this side of the world pond who hasn't tried The Hunger Games.

    1. Same here, it seems everyone's read those books XD

  9. I usually don't read horror either but I quite like Science Fiction once in a while. Thanks for stopping by and sharing! :)

  12. I haven't read the Hunger Games Series yet..its not in a genre I would read...but heard so much about it that I have it on my TBR pile and eventually one of these days will get to it.

    I'm not a fan of science fiction either.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  13. I really like Sci Fi but I'm very particular about what kind I like. I mostly like post-apocalypitic Sci Fi.
