Book Blog Hop Friday #8

Book Blogger Hop

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books.  This is a chance for people to visit other book-related blogs that they normally wouldn't find and/or visit on their own.  To participate, a question must be answered. 

Before we get to the question, I would like to welcome any new viewers/followers to my blog.  If you're an 'oldie but goodie' ... welcome back! =)

Now, this week's question is:

"Why do you read the genre that you do?  What draws you to it?"

My answer:  I read all genres.  I like to see what's out there and to open myself up to new stories that I normally wouldn't have read otherwise.

If I had to settle on one genre, it would have to be mysteries and/or horrors.  I've always loved trying to figure out who did it.  I've always loved trying to find books that scare the mess out of me too.  =)  I guess what draws me to these genres is the fact that I am awed by how some authors' minds work.  How twisted they can seem to be ... I love it.  =)

Happy Hopping!


  1. Congratulations! I have given you an award. Check it out here:

  2. Here I am hopping on by...

    I went all over the map with this question on my blog. I read and enjoy almost every genre of fiction out there. There’s no way I could just pick one.

    So I talked about all of them. Even romance fiction (sort of)! I invite you to hop over to my blog at and see for yourself.

  3. hi--I'm hopping by, too. You and I have very different tastes in reading, but I knew I had to follow you when I saw your Lady Mary Wortley Montagu quotation on the top of your blog. Ever since I read her letters for an 18th century lit class in college, I've been a fan! I look forward to more posts.

  4. @Mandy - Thanks! I'm shocked and excited! =)

    @Howard - I will definitely stop by and check out your blog. =)

    @As The Crowe Files and Reads - I'm curious as to how we have different tastes, so I will be stopping by your blog tonight to check it out. Thanks for following! =)

  5. Follow me I'll follow you!!

  6. Thanks for coming by my blog Coffee N Crackers and follow. I follow you back ABR. =)

  7. Hopping through. I enjoy a twist now and again, but I'm definitely too easily freaked to like scary stories. *shudder* Hope you have a great weekend!


  8. New follower! Stop by and say hi if you get a chance!
