You have to pick ONE GENRE that you frequently read about… and then, you can’t use ANY books from that genre while answering the questions!
Thank you Alliee!
Well, this is going to be hard…
1.A book that is an exception when it comes to genres or elements you don’t typically like.
How a Poem Moves: A Field Guide for Readers Afraid of Poetry by Adam Sol.
I don’t typically read much poetry. I have nothing against it, but for the most part, it baffles me. Adam makes poetry understandable and beautiful. Poetry has so many shapes. The shape of the verse, the shape of the words, the shape of the invoked images. It is amazing.
2. A Book You Enjoyed From A Genre You Previously Held Some Stigma Against
The Witness by Nora Roberts
At one time I was a snob when it came to romance novels. But, my dad is a huge Nora Roberts fan which delights the hell out of me. He introduced me to her and I have loved her books ever since.
3. A Book You Didn’t Know Was Out Of Your Comfort Zone Until You Started Reading It.
It by Stephen King
I love horror, but this is some next level stuff that I was unprepared for. I have never been able to finish this book. Whatever level horror novel this is, I am unprepared for it.
4. Pick A Friend Who Motivates You To Pick Up Books You Might Not Normally Be Interested In – Is There A Book They Convinced You To Give A Try?
I can single out anyone, but I think book twitter, in general, has introduced me to so many new things to try. Cozy mystery here I come!
5. A Book That Is Out of Your Comfort Zone, But You Would Like to Read
Probably a dense history. There is a history of Theodore Roosevelt and his influence on the American Park system that I would love to read.
6.A Book/Genre So Outside Of Your Comfort Zone That You’ll Probably Never Give It A Chance
Gore. I enjoy horror books but straight gore is too much for me. I read the Crossed graphic novel series and I was physically repulsed by it.
There is no pressure! If you do end up doing the tag I’d love to see it.
