This week’s question is:
Have you ever ventured out of your comfort zone in terms of reading a genre you have never read? If so, did you get hooked on that new genre?
Oh, I have ventured but not always with success. There was the time I ventured into fantasy with Maria V Snyder’s Poison Study (I was mostly reading urban fantasy/paranormal romance before that) and discovered that I loved it more than imagined magic in our world. But then there was the time I wanted to get into New Adult and started with Easy by Tammara Webber, but after that all books I read (very few, I agree) felt like variations of the same (including this boring one by Redmerski) and I left the genre. With contemporary YA, I am more like – I’ll read it while my liking for it lasts. Then there was the time I read a steampunk novel and liked it, but am not in love with the genre yet. Dystopian was a surprise for me – I didn’t think morbid apocalyptic worldscapes (most of dystopia is that, okay?) would be intriguing to me but I loved it. I, however, am still looking for something in the lines of Kim Harrison’s Hollows series in YA.
