Follow Friday #10 – Despised Genres

Friday, January 27, 2017
This is a Friday meme now hosted by Patricia of FiktiveWelten. Every week she asks a question that you can answer. Everyone who would like to participate, just answer her question, link to her blog and write a comment under her post to let the others know that you are participating. The entire rules you can find here.

I haven´t done this in a while, since not every question was one I had an answer for. And for some questions, I had already planned my own post.

But this week I found something I was typing spontaneously and so here is what I have to say about the despised genres.

I actually have only one. Others I read only occasionally.


If I had to give it a name I would call myself a genre omnivore.

But not entirely; you won´t find me reading in the horror area and if a romance novel becomes way to kitschy and the pages start to drip of too much sugar sweet stuff, I am out.

There are so many good books out there, so many different writing styles and so many great authors that I just can´t make myself to read only one particular genre. I read whatever catches my interest and where I feel some connection when I look at the cover and then read the summary of it.

How is it about you?

    1. That word really exists. Kind of means I am "eating everything" :-)
