BTT: What’s Your Type?
Amy and Sarah both asked about genres:
Name a book you love in a genre you normally don’t care for. What made you decide to read it? Did it make you want to try more in that genre?
Bookish Sarah asks an interesting assortment of questions:
What genre do you avoid reading and why?
I’m not much of a bodice ripper romance type or sweet, weepy chick lit type or true crime type. All of these have exceptions in my, ahem, book, but the one genre I find myself avoiding more than others tends to be The Dreaded Memoir.
Until I picked up Paul Auster’s Winter Journal, I would have said that only Hemingway’s A Moveable Feast stood out as a favorite in this category. I have to say, though, good ol’ Paul has done right by my expectations of his writing in his latest book.
