This week’s question comes to us from Cheryl @ I Heart Fictional People) who asks:
What genre do you refuse to read and why?
I don’t know that there is a genre that I *refuse* to read, but there are certainly genres that hold much less allure for me than others. Not a huge fan of horror, or high fantasy, or hard sci-fi, although I have read and enjoyed books in all of those genres.
I don’t read books with dogs in them, generally, unless I know that the dog survives. Killing a dog, especially if that dog was a featured character in the book, is a hard pass for me. Books about dogs that die after a long, happy life are also a no-go.
I also avoid sad books, in general. I have spent enough time sad in my life that to seek out additional sad is…well…I mean, it doesn’t make sense. Which again doesn’t mean that a book with a sad element is an automatic no…but I feel like…
Ok. I’m going to just go there. Books like Colleen Hoover’s, which seem designed to just **wreck you** emotionally…no. Not getting on that train with you, CoHo.
(Off to hide from all the CoHo fans. I’ll just be under a sturdy desk.)
The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book-related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog
