Discussion: Favourite Genres20:46
I find it interesting that every person has their own preference when it comes to the types of books they read. Some people love romances. Others can’t stand them. Some people live for zombies and vampires, while others prefer historical thrillers. And they have their own, personal reasons for why they particularly enjoy these types of books. It’s fascinating, seeing what other people like to read and why they like these ones over others.
For me, a certain few genres stand out as favourites for me. I’m not the biggest fan of romances or supernatural books, but I love sci-fi, fantasy, and thrillers, with the occasional contemporary or historical thrown in on the side. For me, I think I am drawn to the expression of the impossible. Magical things happening in fantasy. Strange gadgets giving people unusual abilities in sci-fi. Dead-defying skills and feats in thrillers. All these impossible situations laid out on the page and given their own reality in a book.
But other people have other preferences, and chances are that you like different books to me. So I want to know, what types of books do you like to read and why? What genres don’t you enjoy reading? Do you like a genre that very few other people read? Let me know in the comments!
