Follow Friday #4


Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. This allows book bloggers to find new blogs to follow, and also to gain new followers! Make sure that if someone follows you, you follow them back!

Today's featured blogger is Shelleyrae at Book'd Out! Go check out her page and get to know her!

Today's question is:

 Which book genre do you avoid at all costs and why?

I completely avoid erotica, and mostly avoid the romance genre (by that I mean the mass market, cheesy ones), and I mostly avoid mysteries and horror as well. Now, I'll still give a book a chance if sounds good and just happens to fit into one of these genres...but I don't seek them out. I just don't like horror books or movies, and I find a lot of mysteries boring. The typical romance novels just make me want to puke, lol. I love there to be romance IN the story, but not books that are ALL romance. Does that make sense? I am in sleep deprivation mode, so I hope I make sense!

Are there any genres that you consider off limits? If you are a new follower make sure to leave me a link so I can follow you back!

Erotica is a good one -- I didn't think of that one. I'm a high school librarian, so I don't really read much that I can't put in my library at this point.

I am right there with you! I love a good love story but I also want more to the book than scmoopy love. New follower!

I don't really consider any genre "off-limits" but I tend to mostly read YA (although I read a wide variety of genres within that category). I tend to stay away from nonfiction and horror though.

That makes complete sense to me, I'm the same way. I read horror books but I consider them fantasy for the most part. Scary books don't scare me... scary movies on the other hand are a totally different story.lol

Happy Friday!
