Follow Friday #3

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.

This week's question: What book genre do you avoid at all costs and why?

My answer: For me, this depends on the age group. There are no Young Adult genres that I won't try and can find something I like in any of them. I am much pickier with Adult books and don't often read historical romances, nonfiction or epic fantasies. I just don't have the patience for them a lot of the time! I only tend to read 'mainstream' Adult books such as The Help, whereas I will read pretty much any YA novel.

How about you? Don't forget to leave a link to you FF so I can pop by!


  1. I agree, no historical or non-fiction for me! I don't have any experience with epic fantasy though. New follower :)

  10. I have The Help on my TBR pile. I just need to find the time to actually read it. :)


  11. I love the idea of epic fantasies, but when I start them I usually can't or don't finish them. Maybe I haven't found the right one yet!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, following you back. =)

    I'm the same way! I'll read an adult book that people seem to be enjoying, but I'll read an YA book. Popular or not.

  13. I'm much more flexible when it comes to YA books too. I'll read pretty much anything from that section. I'm like you though when it comes to adult books. I tend to just stick with the paranormal books from that section.

  14. Hi, just stopping by from the FF. I'm a new follower. I don't like to read horror books, I'm just not into getting scared all that much. I like historical romance if it's well written, but I don't read much of that genre (: Have a great weekend!!

  15. Hi! I'm a new follower!!! I can't wait to read more on your blog!!!! :)

    I agree about non-fiction not being my cup of tea. What can I say; I'm a fiction fan! :)

  16. I hardly ever read adult literature. There are too many YA books I want to read and there's just no time! :P

    New follower! :)

  17. Hello.. New follower!! love your blog and looking forward to seeing more.

  18. I love adult fiction though I only tend to stick to crime/thriller books within it, I find a lot of the 'mainstream' boring. On the other hand I do read almost anything that is YA.

  19. I don't think I could read 'epic' fantasies either. Those types of books just blow my mind away.

  20. I read all genre in YA too, and nonfiction or epic fantasies is no no no for me in Adults.

  21. I'm also picky with adult contemporary fiction, and less picky with YA. I do like epic fantasies though!
