The question that everyone was asked this week was:
What book genre do you avoid at all costs and why?
I don't think that there are any book genres that I try to avoid 'at all costs' - I'm generally willing to try anything once! I'm often a little wary of epic fantasies or adult science fiction as it often just makes me a bit confused and goes over my head! The thought of over-the-top romance novels (including historical), cowboys and westerns make me cringe a little, too.
I'd also avoid any non-fiction books about subjects that don't interest me, but that's not to say that I'd avoid the genre completely. I'd never read a biography about a celebrity that I had no interest in, either. I'm also not all that interested in books that are strongly based on religion. I wouldn't read any self-help book unless I really had to, I guess.
It may not sound like it but I'm not really that picky about genres and I don't make an effort to avoid anything completely. Even if it's a book that fits into one of the genres I've mentioned above, if I like the sound of the blurb, I'd be willing to give the book a go!
