'Reading a book is like re-writing it for yourself. You bring to a novel, anything you read, all your experience of the world. You bring your history and you read it in your own terms.'- Angela Carter

Q: When you step out of your USUAL genre what do you like to read? Best books in that genre?

My usual genres are anything paranormal, sci-fi or fantasy. When I step out of these - which isn't often if I'm honest! - it tends to be crime novels, mysteries, anything really with a strong female protagonist. I've recently discovered J. D. Robb which is my new love so we'll see how this goes :).



  1. First off: Lovely blog!!

    Secondly: I really wish that I could get into some more sci-fi-that is one genre that I am always apprehensive to try! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I recent;y started the In Death series too! I only read the first, but it was really good! I love that its set in the future, so it give so leeway for Robb to do whatever she wants!

  3. Hello! I used to be a HUGE fan of crime and mysteries. It's been a while now, but occasionally I still enjoy them! A new follower!

  5. Yeah I'm a paranormal girl myself! I read books with paranormal elements like steampunks, dystopians and even some mysteries. And of course the all around paranormal reads!

  7. Hopping through. I haven't read anything by JD Robb but my parents really like her books, as well as Nora's books written under her own name.

  8. It's hard to break out of the paranormal genre when there's so many great books in it.
