Blog Hop (3)

Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Crazy For Books.

This weeks question:

“Many of us primarily read one genre of books, with others sprinkled in. If authors stopped writing that genre, what genre would you start reading? Or would you give up reading completely if you couldn’t read that genre anymore?”

My answer:
I am a deep, deep, deep, lover of fantasy.  However, I would not stop reading just because that genre is no longer being written.  I love reading way  to much!

Nope, I would just read another genre.  I guess I like paranormal (its so close to fantasy!) historical (I <3 History) and just plain old fiction.  I also like Janette Rallison's romantic comedy's, so I might try some of those genre's.

But I am soooooooo glad this is just a question and authors will still be writing fantasy.  Even if they did stop, I'd continue writing fantasy...It's not banned, is it?

I'm right there with you. I would be extremely disappointed if there weren't any more fantasy novels around!

Let's hope that never happens. (Shudder. Too horrible to contemplate seriously.)

I'd love to have you stop by.

Historical fiction is what I read most often. If it went away, I'd have to substitute something else, but I would sorely miss my old favorites! (H.F. and fantasy overlap very frequently, so I can see why you love fantasy so much.)

I love historical romance, but I would have to feed from fantasy and sci-fi! I'm a bit tired of paranormal these days =P

Have fun hopping!

So glad this is just a hypothetical question! :) And, you sure can write it! It's not banned! LOL!

Thanks for the rec on Janette Rallison. I've never read anything by her, but I do enjoy a romantic comedy from time to time, so I will have to check her out.

Happy Hopping!

Oh, I love Janette Rallison! I just finished My Double Life by her. She has some great books. I know...it's impossible to think of completely stopping reading.

You could go back and read fantasies you might have missed. There are so many different things to read even if new books in a favorite genre stopped being published. Please come see what I would read.

Jo said...

Hopping by to say hi --- I'm also a lover of fantasy books, so while I'd have plenty of other things to read, I'd really miss certain authors.

Historical would be awesome to get into! As long as the writing is good I can read cereal boxes!

I like the classics so my genre of interest has technically stopped being written for some time xD BUT new potential classics and pieces of GOLD are written still, I guess. I'm not usually into fantasies, but I did sort of like the Twilight series... xD I guess I like the romantic comedies that people can relate to :)
