FF 2012 Feature & Follow #81

Join in by answering the question in your own post with your own cool F&F pic and jumpin' on the Linky thingame on the above sites.  It's fun!!  And I am totally curious...

Q: Which book genre do you avoid at all costs and why?

The trouble with a straight answer is, there is always an exception. 

Autobiographies and Memoirs can be boring b/c there are rarely any light sabers involved (unless it was a relative of mine writing) but as soon as I write that, I think of Bruchko, who headed off into the Amazon jungle to visit a tribe he was warned to stay away from and he got speared in the leg and ended up becoming friends with them.  Gives me goosebumps, it was such a great book.

I'm not a mystery girl - although, since I like not being able to guess the end, maybe I should be - but The Westing Game is one of my all-time favorite books, so I should definitely not say I avoid mysteries at all costs.

Maybe horror... add tension with graphic violence and that sounds like something I'm not really interested in and probably I Am Number Four doesn't count as proof that I might like it, right?

And I'm sure I'm not into erotica stuff. Any passionate detailed love scenes put me off pretty badly 'cause I feel like I'm the character in the book and frankly, I know who I want to experience that with and whoever-it-is isn't him. 

Hey... maybe that's why I say "no erotica, no horror" on my What-I'll-Review page!!  I know I'll think of an exception (Sunshine!! OMG, that's a great scene, actually!) but I can't promise to finish and review, so that's a good answer.

There... not so hard!!

What genre do you avoid and WHY?!

  2. Oh man, I LOVE horror! But I understand why a lot of people don't like it though. I agree with you that non-fiction can be boring. New follower and subscriber! Check out my FF:

  4. I think it depends on the book for me for these genres. I like from time to time a great mytery or horror book.
