This week's question is...

When you step out of your USUAL genre what do you like to read? Best books in that genre?

First off... Sorry for doing this meme so late. For some reason my laptop refused to work at ALL for me yesterday. But I guess that is okay because I was able to complete an entire book while I was waiting. LOL... Deity by Jennifer L. Armentrout never saw it coming, BAM! and I like finished that book in a day =D

Okay, so on to the question.... To be completely honest I DON'T step out of the genre's that I like to read. I typically won't even pick up a book if it doesn't fall within the genre that has enamoured me for years now. The genres that I read are YA paranormal, YA Sci-fi, YA Urban Fantasy, YA High Fantasy, with a few Adult Paranormal books thrown in every now and then.... Mostly YA in general, I will read YA Contemporary sometimes. I used to read Historical Romance when I was younger so I do still have a few of those books on my shelves.

But like any rule there are some exceptions. And the only thing that I have found that ever changes my mind about reading a book is if there is a movie coming out that I want to see and it was a book before that is being adapted to the big screen. Then I will read the book before I see the movie. In that case the only two books that I have read outside of my genre are One Day by David Nicholls and Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen. Which were both really good books.

Otherwise, I stick to my genre and I am very adamant about not wavering from it. But there are so many good books to read in this genre, that I don't think I will grow tired with it any time soon.

What about you? What genre do you read? And do you waver from it every now and then?

I haven't read One Day the book but the film just shocked me! I loved Water for Elephants too and I'm planning on hopefully getting the book soon :)

I read a bit of everything but I do sometimes force myself to read a book that I normally wouldn't if it has a movie coming out.

I read pretty much all YA. It's such a catch-all "genre" that I feel like I'm always reading something different.

Yes, it really is hard to step out when the genre you love is so much fun!

@Beccabooklover: Yea... The actual book was pretty hard for me to into at first, but once I was about half way in, I just COULD not put the book down. It is an amazing story but so heartbreaking at the same time. It really makes you realize how precision your time, your love and the people in your life really are.

@Megan: That is good. It is always good when you can read anything. It's sometimes hard for me because I am so picky in what I read, but there are so many good books as well in the genre that I love that I really don't mind it.

@Veela-Valoom: I was really into the paranormal for a long time and while I still absolutely love my paranormal books I have found that I am starting to enjoy reading YA Contemporary as well, where there is no paranormal but two teenagers coming of age and learning what is most important to them and learning how to be themselves and to love each other for it.

@Christina: Yea. And I really have no desire to step out of it now. I don't care if I'm not a teenagers myself any more or anything, but at 24 I still consider myself a young adult and even if I was 40 I'd still read the books if it's what I still love when I am 40... LOL

@Aditi: No. One Day is the only book I have read by him. I really only read YA books. It's what I love to read most. As well as some Adult books.
